First ever time at a shooting scene.
First ever official debrief.
Duty time was 16 hours, started at 1900hrs.
Radio msg for urgent assistance, luckily we were not too far away and road was fairly clear. Not going into details about the shooting save to say I got on with the job but felt for the victim and his family/friends as we protected the cordon and guided/comforted the distressed people there. Sounds obvious now, but seeing similar on the news vs being there and sensing the enormity of the incident are two very different things.
After the shooting, dealt with an assault on a night bus, then an arrest for S5 Public Order.
The major incident debriefing was another first time for me. Large room of officers from the scene reporting evidence and actions, statements etc, and the senior investigating team there note/collate this as you'd expect. Good forum where even the smallest detail can be the catalyst to piecing it all together. Was very tired and hungry by this point, though. A warm thanks for our team of Specials from the Inspector was a welcome boost, however. Looking around the room, I saw the majority of Regs looked a lot younger and fitter than myself; I did feel quite old/past it upon leaving the debriefing and seeing so many 20-something officers (I am late 30s).
The Regs and Specials worked very well together again, am quite proud that on this occasion particularly we were of vital use when the call for urgent assistance came in. I saw my colleagues really do well, even those newer than myself. Proud night for us, sounds cliched but whole team really were every inch professional and had the stamina.

Planned Duty 12.00 to 1800
Location Bournemouth Square
I had planned to be a Part of Op. Puzzle. Where we take over a station from the Regs. for a day. But that was full so got a text asking for 3-4 volunteers for an Xmas based event in the town.
So got there to find that it was only me and a PCSO (On her day off as well.) to deal with the Xmas lights switch on, entertainment and Fireworks…..
Planned was 1400, Santa. 1600, Robbie Williams Tribute on stage. 1700, Lights on by Peter Pan, then fireworks after.
All went well at the start until Santa was due to arrive. We were then told that he was due to drive though the square through about 2,000 bodies and was late. The PCSO had a word with the town centre manageress and pointed out the obvious disadvantages in this.. So he just got driven up to the stage. Separated from PCSO so we could cover more area.
At 1530 there was about 3-4000 warm bodies jamming the square. Packed between the food stalls and the stage / ski slope. Movement became difficult. I started directing people away from the Mass telling them to use the road and Gardens to go round if they where shopping. Kept raining off and on and very cold. Keeping eye out for known pickpockets and directing lost kids to parents. Got told switch on now planned for 1730.
1600 Bands appeared. No Robbie Williams Tribute as yet. Kept being told, “But you said it was supposed to be Robbie Williams”.. About 5000+ people by this time. No more room to move. Suggested that everyone on the left breath in while those on the right breath out.. Trying to keep a path free to road. Helped wheelchairs to stage. Very busy….
1730 All hell beaks out. Now about 10000+ bodies there. Lights go on and fireworks go off…….
…….and land in the crowd before exploding.
Mass panic. PCSO extinguishes an elderly ladies hair that is on fire. Mass movement of the crowd but nowhere to go, except by me.
Fireworks going off in pushchairs and head height. I walk though calming crowd and tending injuries. Got shouted at a lot…
Managed to radio for assistance, PCSO knocking at fireworks door to try to stop the display. All fizzled out after 2 minutes. Continued to calm crowd and take abuse. Tended more injuries and directed others to events control where there was no first aid facilities except those carried in the local radio station cars.
Panic over, time to sort it out. Ambulance called to deal with injuries. None serious thank god. Sorted crowd and ushered away in safe direction.
Found live firework on table, gave to organizer.
Took details of injuries.
1745 Regs. arrive and take over. Dealt with a PONFA by taking him out of town, (what a smell)..
Back to the Square to tidy up details.
1830 Back to the nick for report time. Quite damming. No stewards, no first aid facilities, only let the police know about it on Thursday.
Got a commendation for the Duty.
1930 Knock off…
Posted 16 December 2006 - 11:40 PM
Length of Service: First duty
Force: Metropolitan Police (Westminster)
Time of Duty: 0830 - 1830
0830: Briefing with Sergeant, update on local known offenders and recent events. Get introduced to shift teams. There are 16 of us, to be joined by more later on - 3x Sgts, 2x PCs, 1x SC (me!), 10x PCSO's. PCs and me are assigned to execute a warrant to seize a dangerous dog (Pitbull Terrier) reported in the area.
0930: We set off in the van to the location and meet up with two dog handlers. There is no answer at the door, but the windows are open - it seems like somebody is in. We go round the back, and sure enough find someone in the kitchen. She opens the door and starts f'ing and blinding at us, threatening us with legal action as we produce the warrant. She and her boyfriend are well-known to the police, and apparently we are "harassing" her. I am absolutely bricking it, because they start shouting and screaming, and there are three kids running around. There are just three of us in the hallway.
0940: Dog Section confirms that dog is a large Staffordshire Bull Terrier, and we leave after producing paperwork. Sergeant manages to calm the situation down before we leave - amazing diplomacy in action! We head back in the van.
1000: I head off on foot patrol with one of the PCs, who gives me a tour of the area and the SNT turf. We get reports of a man leaving nails in pieces of chicken from a park-keeper as animal booby-traps. He has told her that he hates dogs and thinks they should be killed; she is pretty sure it's him planting these things in the park, but there is no hard evidence. Two PSCO's are already on the scene, so I take a note of his description in my PNB and head off.
1140: An uneventful patrol so far, but a MOP comes up to us and says that he has seen some teenage boys selling stolen mobile phones in a shop just round the corner. We head over to investigate and find the boys on site. They turn away from us, but we tell them we want to speak to them. One of them dashes into a cafe next door and I fish him out. They are all acting suspiciously, but the shopkeeper denies anything, and they only have a clip-on case which he (and they) claim to have just bought. It seems likely they are trading stolen phones for goods from the shop, but besides their mannerisms and odd behaviour, we have nothing to go on. I make a note of it all in my PNB.
1200: We return to the station for some refs. I get accosted on the way back by some nutter who has applied (and failed) to join the Special Constabulary several times before - he actually recognises the SC Crowns! My partner explains that he is a regular 136 job, but he has a strange obsession about Specials, and his careworkers keep encouraging him to apply. He clearly has severe mental health issues from my brief conversation with him, before grabbing a sandwich and heading for the safety of the nick!
1220: I recognise one of the boys we stopped earlier as being one of our PPO's on the board. He is known for all manner of petty offences.
1300: I head out with one of the Sergeants to take witness statements. It's a nice block of flats we're heading to, but there is a crack house nearby that has been making life hell for the residents. We get a very clear picture of what is going on, and this provides us with some clinching evidence to secure an operation. Can't say more about it - but I felt very sorry for the residents. We will sort out their problems by Christmas, however.
1630: Finished statements. On the way back to the station, we find a burnt out moped on the side of the pavement. It has clearly been torched, as it is still chained to the kerb. We find no identifying marks (plates, engine no) - but call it in anyway. There is no evidence at scene, but one local druggie tells us it has been there for six days. Seems odd that it hadn't been noticed till then.
1700: Refs break in the local cafe, and we meet up to discuss the day's events with a group of four PCSOs.
1730: Me & the Sgt get back to the station - a good day's work! My colleague from my earlier patrol has stopped and searched the boys we met outside the phone shop and found him with a Sat Nav system in his pocket - unusual for a 15 year old...and he was heading to the phone shop again! He confirms that he is the PPO I thought he was, and hastily copies my PNB entry from earlier. I feel very happy in playing a part! My team have been very supportive of me today, and I thank them for being patient with me and showing me around. In turn, they thank me for coming along and say how they appreciate what Specials can do. For one of them, it is his first time out with an SC, and he seems particularly chuffed.
1740: I book off duty, and get asked to do a special job next week - will post more about it then, as it's operational info at the moment. Very excited and slightly nervous about it though!

06:00 Gear up (gettit?) and attend briefing room. Donuts vanish before briefing even begins
06:30 Briefing over, officers are assigned to vehicles
06:31 I moan because I want to go in the new unmarked traffic car, Sgt replies 'more donuts needed my son' bah
08:00 Call comes in of a male running down hard shoulder of a motorway, after finding said male, discover he's come to the country under a lorry after paying the princely sum of $7,000. Without going into too much detail male is referred to Immigration
08:20 Call comes in of a major RTC on one of the motorways, we attend being first police presence on scene, involving several heavy goods vehicles. From looking at the wreckage its immediately obvious this is likely to prove fatal, my first on a motorway. After establishing a perimeter and moving people back into their cars, I begin collecting witness details from all perimeter vehicles, it quickly becomes apparent that everyone who has stopped saw nothing, all the drivers who did witness the accident have driven off...
08:35 Ambulance, Paramedics, Brigade, HATO are all now on scene. Brigade has done its job making the scene safe for the medics to work. I assist in closing down the other side of the motorway allowing a medic helicopter to land on site and rush the likely to prove to hospital.
09:00 A visual barrier is raised on the central barrier after the other side of the motorway is allowed to move again. I start counting the number of near accidents caused by people rubbernecking at the accident as it is slowly obscurred from view, I get into double figures before the site is completely blocked out
09:40 After one of the drivers involved has been cleared to be interviewed by medical staff, I take a first account from him in the back of a police vehicle. Unbeknown to him I recieve an update from the hospital, the fatal to prove has not made it. I read back over what I have taken so far, knowing it will be analysed by many more people now this is a fatal RTC. I continue taking the account in a proffesional courteous manner, managing a smile now and again to keep the driver at ease.
14:00 All services have left the scene now apart from police. HATO are here, I dont know why, I dont think they know why. Road Crash Investigation unit is wrapping up. I escort one of the drivers to a waiting vehicle and he is taken away.
14:30 Recovery vehicles begin taking the remaining vehicles away. Carriageway debris is cleaned up
15:00 Road block at previous junction is lifted and we return to base to commence operation paperwork
16:15 Drive back home, watching cars fly past on the motorway ... tonight i'll need a good chat with Jack...

Time Of Duty 1800 to 0300
This was a shift that I did last summer. I am now a fulltime peace officer.
Started the shift and attended the start shift briefing. We figured that it would be a busy night as it was friday night.
I got paired up with a reg and we headed out to our sector.
Got dispatched to a domestic dispute between a husband and wife. Took the Husband off to lockup as he had out standing warrants. We spent a good hour in lockup booking him in.
Around 20:00 we went for a bit of coffee and biscuits, but were interupted by a vehicle crash on the local highway. a single vehicle crash not too bad we took statements and waited for the tow truck to come and pick up the vehicle. started off down the highway and handed out a couple of speeding tickets. we decided to cruise the local nasty bar. When we got there we found a vehicle that had the wrong plates on it. we pulled it over and out got this guy that reall looked like Ali G. We searched his car and found a bag of Marijuana and a huge roll of money. We towed his vehicle, confiscated his drugs and money and sent Mr G home with a handfull of fines.
We were getting pretty hungry so we went for dinner. And we actually got to get the whole thing in. We thought we would go and patrol some of the local parks for anyone shooting up in a parking lot. When all of the sudden our tone alert went off. And they were dispatching us all to a multiple shots fired call. We raced down to the address and were met with a whole bunch of kids running up the street yelling that there was a guy with a machine gun firing at them. We called for more patrols to come and we waited for them to arrive. I was handed a shotgun. (which we as specials arent allowed to carry) So I handed it over to another Reg. We then started to make our way over to the house that the shots came from.
We got with in about 100 feet of the house. The Sgt told us to set up a perimeter and wait for the Emergency responce team to arrive. I was tasked to go around to all the local houses and see if anybody was injured. We found that 4 houses were hit but no one was struck. Then it started to rain. I was put on watch duty and told to go and sit in a bush just north of the house. I spent a good hour there. Just when I thought it was all quiet, I see two figures crawling on thier bellies toward the house. I radioed to the Sgt about them. And he told me and another Reg to go and get them. So off we went and jumped them. They were two kids trying to get back into the house.
We waited another 2 hours and were told to pull out of the perimeter. The Emergency Response Team had arrived and where going to charge the house.I was then tasked to cuff and place any suspects into the wagon. The ERT team then got on the loud speaker and told everyone to leave the house. To our dismay about 20 teenagers exited the house. So we handcuffed them with zip ties and loaded them into the wagon. The Home owner (some punk) wouldnt come out. So the ERT gassed to house and the teen came out.
they took him down hard.
Once everyone had been taken out, the ERT team entered the house and cleared it. in the upstairs bedroom they found a MAC10 machine pistol and a 45 Cal Handgun.
So we then got back into our patrol car and went back to the station. I ended up booking out of the detachment at around 06:00. What a night.

Length of Service: 9 years 10 months
Time of Duty: 19:30 - 00:00
Arrived at the station to do a hand over with the civillian counter clerk who should have finished at 20:00hrs but went early and left me to it. from 19:45 to 00:00 (When the enquiry desk shuts) I was bored beyond belief as I had no MOPs in and the phone never rang, I tried passing the time by monitoring the CCTV system but as half the cameras are broken that didn't last long. Had a conversation with one of the regs who started at 21:00hrs for the night shift. Due to staffing shortages there were only 3 regulars on for the night shift and one of them was put back on minimum cover. The thing is they shouldn't have been as they weren't independant yet which meant my reg friend would be working on her own. A quick conversation with the sargent and I offered to stay on and make up the fourth.
The magical hour has arrived and the public entrance is closed for the night. I've already taken the oportunity with it being quiet to get changed into my uniform and get kitted out. so at 00:01hrs I'm out the back door on foot patrol. I find my reg and we hang around outside the busier pubs looking for anyone up to no good. Fortunately or unfortunately depending on how you look at it, everyone is behaving themselves so the next couple of hours go without incident.
We've been in and got a marked focus as someone has finished so we park up in one of the usual spots for watching the pubs kicking out and sit passing the time with chit chat, our attention drawn on occation by a loud group or the usual play fighting and high jinx. Nothing much exciting happens until about 02:20hrs when there's a shout over the airwave re a fight on a street not a million miles from us. Out of the car we run round the corner just in time to see it being seperated by colleagues. A quick check that they've got in in hand and it's back to the car.
The MOPs have more or less gone home, a few stragglers remain clinging to their cold pizza, tryin to get that male or female they've hooked up with to go home with them, everything is at peace... I drop my reg partner back at the nick as she's got paperwork to work through while it's quiet and head off to have a ratch about and stop check some cars.
My god there's hardly anything moving on the roads, it's unusually quiet so I head back in to see how the paperwork is getting on and to have a brew. A shout from the control room tells us that staff from the neighbouring rural nick are having problems with a group of males that they had a run in with earlier in the evening. They were getting rowdy and they needed some extra hands and a van. We'll do that I shout as I'm swapping or focus for a personel carrier. I had to have picked the slowest van in history, we could have got out and ran faster, we make the area just in time to hear that the lads have starburst and vanished, nice one I think NOT but at least they were no longer causing a problem. An area search confirms that they've gone and we resume back to our patch.
I've hit the wall of tiredness (Having been at my day job all day) and we head back in for the brew I was going to have an hour ago. I help with some of the regs paperwork and the morning shift arrived about 06:30ish and said they would take over so after a quick change at 06:45hrs it's off home to an overdue bed.

1800 on duty with reactive; first call to a serious injury RTC,
clear from that and go back to the nick for a cup of tea,,,,
one sip and another A grade
ABH in a DV situation, woman getting hurt; one into custody after a bit of a tug, the pain on pain off on handcuffs works although the door handle came away in my hand, honest guv. Go to the hospital to finish statement, hear on the radio, colleagues need assistance, 8 miles but we offer up,,,,,,,
Blues down to there, very distressed woman, we relieve colleagues who had caught lots of CS. Smelt a bit like my mum's nail varnish, held the DP's hand while we put cuffs to the rear and then found myself with a similar sized skipper who announced, 'backwards, into the van mate', she was a big girl too. Spit hood on and get into the wind to get rid of gas. Had to drive as colleague's eyes were watering a bit.
Back to the hospital to finish statements and seize some clothing for a GBH,,,,,,,,,,
Back to the nick to bag it all up and do some paperwork, six hours had passed since that sip out of a cup of tea and this time, we will enjoy one.
Ten hour shift just flew; happy days, good well motivated people, good jobs done, some nasties taken off the streets, cant wait till the next shift. Be safe.

Service: 2 1/2 years
Location: Hickville, Hickshire
Tour: Lates, 1500 x 0000
1500 - Briefing. Always the best part of the day, always the funniest part of the day. I think we must have some of the funniest people on my shift.
Don't get time to finish my tea before my crew mate, Wiggy, and I are tipped out. <<<Any late shift attend ****** Close, social services have tried to section a male who's now gone beserk.>>>
We find some keys and attend the address. It turns out it's a local 'independent living' facility for people with mental health issues. Turns out the chap is inside happily chirping away to himself about being God. Turns out the 'Social services' are support staff who've tried to get this chap sectioned, but the crisis team are basically refusing to help. Final solution is to call the Police and get them to cart him off to Hospital. This, as far a I'm concerned, isn't happening and is another example of the Police being abused by social services. So we eventually get the crisis team to come out and the chap is apparently mad.
He gets a lift in a big blue taxi to the local Mental hospital. I'm glad, as he clearly needs help.
1830hrs - Still at the hospital and get told to get back to the nick and grab our PSU kit. They need us in the city. COOL!! A PSU cascade. We blue light it to the nick, grab our kit load up the van and blue light it back to the City. Enroute we get told not to blue light it, so a slow amble through miles of traffic.
1920 On arrival it appears one of our communities are well chuffed that India won the cricket, and are celebrating in the street. We get crowd control. I'm a bit miffed as the local units seem to leave Wiggy and I to sort the 200 strong crowd out whilst they stand about chatting.
2020 We're told we can go back to area.... Wait, no. We have PSU kit and shields can we make our way to an address on the city edges. A man had barricaded himself in a shed with a knife. Cool. Finally we get to kit up.
Neither Wiggy or I a familiar with the area, so we're a little slower than some of the other units getting there in our van. We're also embarrasingly low on fuel. We arrive and kit up, we form a three man shield team with another bobby, who we've not met before.
Into the back garden we go, looking menacing. The Sgt tries to talk the man out again who refuses, he looks out the window and is not best impressed by the presence of three bobbies kitted up in pads, riot helmets and long shields.
The signal is given, the doors are pulled open and captor is sprayed into the shed. I remove the rather large barricade made up of wicker furniture, and grab knife weilding idiot. Amongst the coughing and spluttering we drag him to the floor and cuff him. He's taken out to a van and re-cuffed (it's hard to doing it in PSU gloves.) I find the knife, it was directly underneath him. I feel well chuffed - the training works.
With my face burning from captor fumes, Wiggy and I return to the local nick to do our PNB's.
2200 - Return to Hickville and meal.
Finish my clerical for the day.
Midnight - Go home for a beer.
* Please note, most shifts are not as good as this. This was a good week for me - also went to a bit of a siege where bloke threatened to blow house up with gas. Turned out nice in the end.

Length of Service: 7/8 years
Time of Duty: Last night, 18:00 – 04:00 (well – should have been…..)
On duty at 18:00. A regular who has been in around 7/8 months was also on. She had a few files outstanding so I read through them and did a couple of summary of facts to help her along. She also had a traffic file she needed a hand with so we got that bottomed off (I love traffic jobs!).
Got mobile in a car around 19:30. She hasn’t done her driving course yet, neither have I so as none of us can ‘blue-light’ it, it was decided that I would drive. Had a bimble round – not much happening.
She then went off with another officer who was doing a job where a female officer would be needed. Rather than being out on my own, I doubled up with another Regular.
20:20. Reports of an RTC around 30 seconds away from where we were. A Clio had driven across a Give Way sign without noticing the Pizza van coming up the road until it T-Boned his car…… No injuries but both vehicles will probably be write offs.
Took the driver of V1 into my car and breathalysed him. Clear. He admitted that it was all his fault. Issued him with a HORT/1 and also NIP’ed him for Due Care. As we were waiting for Recovery to arrive, did a contemperous interview in my PNB with him. Then took the driver of V2 back to his Pizza Place and got a quick statement from him. Back to the station to stick the RTC on the computer. Handed the statement and notes over to the Regular as he needed a traffic job and did him a statement ref the interview.
Back out on mobile patrol. All a bit boring.
Attended reports of a domestic. The male party had left and headed back to his home address. We parked around the back and saw the lights come on and him inside. Eventually found out from officers at the females house that he has broken a lampshade and she wanted to make a complaint. We ring the door but he isn’t answering. Decide that we won’t be knocking down his front door just over a lampshade and get the job held over until the morning.
01:00. The regular is due off so I keep the car and am out on my own. Go around the local industrial estates seeing if anyone is there who shouldn’t be.
02:30. A van with 2 specials in are going to pull a van over just around the corner from me which is weaving a bit over the road. I head that way and we get the van stopped. Speaking to the two male occupants, I can smell alcohol on the drivers breath and he admits to having a few drinks. We are also a bit concerned about the van being out at that time and so the Control Room are contacting the key holder of the company to find out the score.
The 2 other specials are wanting to get off at 03:00 as they both have things on the next morning. I don’t mind taking anything on, so I breathalyse the driver and after a bit of a pause, the red Fail light comes on. I lock the driver up and get him in the back of the van. The Control Room comes back to say that the key holder says the van should be parked outside their office and they don’t employ anyone with the names given by the two males. So I also lock the driver up for TWOC and the passenger for being carried.
Get them back to Custody and join the queue as two people are in front of me….. Eventually get the driver booked in and whilst he is blowing, go in and book in the passenger. The passenger is extremely intoxicated and so he gets bedded down for the night. Discover that the driver has blown 28 and 27 and so is clear of the drink driving, but still has the TWOC issue pending – and is ready for interview. My dreams of finishing at 04:00 are rapidly disappearing……. A regular agrees to stay on and assist in interviewing the driver. He admits taking the van, no driving licence, no insurance etc. Says the passenger didn’t have anything to do with it and he was just giving him a lift. Can’t really charge him until we have spoken to the passenger so try and bail him. Ring his Mum who refuses to accept him. Try his brother who says the same thing. Looks like he will be staying in overnight.
Let the regular get off home and I sort out a handover package, arrest statements, and as much of a file as I can for the morning lot.
Eventually get back to the Station and book off at 06:30 – only a 12 ½ hour shift!
Popped into the station this afternoon to check my e-mails and found that the passenger confirmed the driver’s story so the passenger was let go. The driver was charged with TWOC, no insurance, no licence. The file will be winging it’s way back to me….

Find the other 2 officers started at 1500 and now off at 2300.
Sit in the office until about 2030.
Go out in a vehicle to get some chips 6 miles away.
Do 1 hotspot check on the way.
Drop off the ACO types at a station for them to do a patrol, back to the office until about 2230 when I've completely lost the will to live and go early.
A very valuble evening which I'm sure I could have used to much better advantage by doing almost anything else, for instance double time overtime at work.

Length of Service: 1 year 10 months
Time of Duty: 17:15 - 04:00
I began my duty at 1715, got my kit together, and completed a few bits of paperwork before the briefing at 1800hrs - an operation targetting ASB of any kind by youths.
After sorting out vehicles and crewings, I headed out around 1830hrs with a colleague and decided to check one of our local beaches - a number of people have started bonfires there these last few days, and they're banned by local byelaws. We were practically followed into the carpark by a brand new Mercedes saloon car - as we pulled up to park, the Merc sped off at speed to the other end of the car park, then turned round and came back towards us. Jumping out of the van I stopped the vehicle and found it was being driven by a young male - it turns out his boss had asked him to park the car for him. I gave him a lecture and threatened him with a S59 notice, and finished up by issuing a HORT1 for his D/L and insurance... I'm not holding my breath on that one.
There were no bonfires, so we headed back to the station to pick up another colleague who had just signed on for duty. As soon as we arrived a number of ASB calls came in at once - we were allocated a criminal damage job to a church door, youths had kicked in one of the panels. I completed the crime report while my colleagues did a quick area search for the offenders, but they came back with a "no trace".
After dealing with a few more ASB jobs (underage youths drinking, etc), the operation came to an end so we then drifted in towards the centre of town to keep an eye on MOP's going out to clubs and pubs. Shortly after doing this, a call came over the air from out CCTV controllers regarding an assault outside a pub. We were first on scene, and there were a number of doorstaff and MOP's milling around accusing each other of assault. I put a call into the CCTV control room and a particular MOP was pointed out to me as being the main offender, so I arrested her for ABH. Doing a cursory search before putting her in the van, a colleague found some drinking glasses in her handbag which the female admitted to having taken from another pub earlier that evening, so I also arrested her for theft.
We took her back to custody, and as I began to book her in it came to my attention that she was also wanted on PNC by another force regarding an assault last year! I further arrested her for this, and somewhat unsurprisingly her detention was authorised by the custody sarge.
After leaving a message for the WMP officer to let him know I'd caught one of his offenders (), I completed the hand-on pack ready for our DPU to take over in the morning. As I was finishing up, a new Special came in with a S5 arrest, so I assisted him with his paperwork, finally leaving the station at around 4am!
It was a very busy shift, and especially satisfying too - I'd never arrested someone for three different offences before tonight . I feel worn out, especially after completing a full-days work but I know that come tomorrow evening I'll be fully refreshed, ready for another fun shift with the squad...

Length of Service: 2 Months
Time of Duty: 18:00 - 07:00
18:00 Go and pick up a radio from another station on the other side of town, as the station I'm being deployed from has very few.
19:00 All ready and waiting for briefing. I had planned to work with a local SNT on an operation combatting anti social behaviour alongside regs and PCSOs. There were a few other Specials involved.
20:30 Eventually briefed and split up.
21:00 Travel to a local SNT office picking some refs up on the way. One of the regs has a CRIS to fill out so much time is spent enoying tea and refs.
22:30 4 and a half hours later, at last we are out patrolling. Get a call to some youths causing noise in an estate. Stop and Account, have a brief chat and we are on our way again. We drive around hotspots but it seems to be a very quiet Friday night.
23:45 The shift so far has left a lot to be desired. Most of it has been waiting around and then only that one call to the estate. Feeling rather fed up and tired from a long day beforehand I decided to call it a night. With getting home and relaxing on my mind we drive the short journey back to the station when bingo! An I grade call just around the corner. Youths fighting. Do a few PNC checks then I arrest the main suspect. It was my first arrest and I really wasn't expecting it. Suspect was a bit bloody but didnt put up much of a fight thankfully (until in cuffs).
00:20 A van arrived to take me and prisoner back to the station. Go back, process through custody and get a lot of very helpful advice from Sgt with respect filling out forms etc. This was a big fear for me up until now as I felt this was not covered well enough during training. However, I have now learnt shed loads from an excellent sgt. All the regs, PCSOs and Specials on this Op have been incredible.
01:40 Finished paperwork with a big sense of relief. The second I stand up out of my chair to go to the toilet, an urgent assistence call from our team comes through A male is using threatening behaviour towards my colleagues. Me and the sgt whizz over (first time in a car on response mode and I hold on for dear life). A colleague arrests and I witness another custody procedure. Things are starting to look familiar and and things are generally starting to make sense.
03:30 Back out in a car. See a group of teens loitering around a closed Underground station. We stop and search, find nothing of interest. Back on our way with coffee on our minds but nowhere is open.
04:30 Called to a male urinating and banging + shouting outside a woman's house. We are ready to issue him a ticket until it becomes clear for some reason or another that he cannot remember his address. Oh dear, you know what this means. After a lot of asking and "One last time, tell us...." he failed to give us his address, so it was off to the nik for him.
05:30 Back at station doing paperwork. Sun starts to rise and my bed is calling me.
07:00 13 Hours on duty and a lot learnt. More than all the other shifts i've done as a Special put together. So much fun but tiring at the same time. I look forward to going out with this team again.
07:15 In bed!

Time of Duty: 17:15 - 23:30
Another eventful shift - everything from antisocial youths to RTC's, concerns for welfare to neighbourly disputes. We're heading back to the nick around 2130ish to put an update on the system regarding the neighbour dispute (it was complicated!), and just seconds away from the station I see a vehicle that just doesn't look right. It has blacked-out windows I can't see who's driving, so we follow and I run it through PNC.
It comes back showing insurance & MOT held, but I'm still not happy so I run the keeper through PNC & CJS - she comes back as a habitual cannabis user. I do a #DL check as well and the operator comes back with the reply "no licence shown". Not yet able to do compliant stops, I call up for another unit and a traffic car shouts up - they're a couple of minutes away and making towards our location, so we continue following the vehicle. They know by now that they're being followed, the speedo never moves above 30mph at all.
We're heading out towards a car park well-known for drugs use, so things are looking promising. I continue to update the traffic car as to our location, and with just seconds to spare before they arrive on scene, the suspect car pulls into a parking bay - we box the car in and I approach the driver's door. Drawing level, I can see the driver is male - damn!
Just then the traffic car pulls up, but satisfied that we've got things in hand he moves on to his next job. There's a female in the passenger seat (the registered owner, it turns out), so while my colleague keeps an eye on her, I run a check on the male. He comes back as having valid insurance for the vehicle and a full licence, but running him through the local system, he's flagged as having previous for possession of cannabis. There's still a chance this could turn out to be a good job...
Asking both parties to get out from the vehicle we explain to them that we're going to search them under Section 23 of the Misuse of Drugs Act, and ask if either of them have anything on them that they shouldn't have - both say no, so we begin the search. The female comes back completely clean, and although he's not got any drugs on him, the male does have a small, empty deal bag in his pocket and a cannabis grinder, so I have a positive search as far as drug paraphernalia is concerned. My colleague begins to write up the stop and search forms, while I have a quick check of the vehicle - unfortunately though, on this occasion we draw a blank for anything illegal.
Returning to the station, I review the stop forms and add a CJS/16 entry to the system - neither party were linked together previously, so at the very least we have a little bit more intelligence on the two bods and the vehicle concerned. I still can't help feeling a little disappointed that we didn't find anything though... still, there's always next time!

Length of Service: 9 months (2 1/2 Years as an SC)
Force: Thames Valley Police - High Wycombe
Time of Duty: 07.00 - 16.00
06.30: Arrive at the nick to kit up and get ready for briefing. Try to squeeze myself into the narrow corridoor of lockers where mine is located and attempt to kit up in an area where an elf would have difficulty.
06.40: Check emails to see if there is anything urgent I need to respond to.
06.50: Attend briefing. Were not too bad for bodies today. Four (4) Double crewed Units, 2 Shift Sgt's, 1 Inspector and a 'slow time jobs' vehicle. Go around the table to discuss any incidents of note or any intel we need to share before going through the local area briefing and the dishing out of callsigns. (We dont have a 'response' vehicle per-say in TVP. We'll all just pile in if needed!
07.00: Out of briefing. Night turn go home and I take up residence at one of the many computers to get up to date on any paperwork. Myself and my crewmate, an experienced shift officer are given a Missing Person to sight. No hurry to do it they say as she appears AIO and asleep on the sofa.
07.45: After getting upto date on paperwork we head out to Starbucks for a caffine fix (I hate earlies!). Cappuchino in hand we get back to the car and go and sight the Misper. She is AIO and I ask to see if there are any underlying issues as to why she went missing from her residence. She says no, just her and her partner are having a few issues but nothing criminal. Thats me done there then and me and my colleague resume.
09.00: Immediate comes in - Possible break in progress. 3 Houses that are currently being renovated have 'intruders' in them who are possibly stripping copper piping from them. The owner states nobody should be on the premises. Interesting. Ourselves, another shift unit and a neighbourhood officer responds. Sirens blaring and lights a plenty we finally arrive to the gate to the compound wide open.....oooo! We get a cordon on and we enter the compound and begin to search the premises. We are now also joined by 2 PCSO's and another Neighbourhood officer who just so happened to be over the road at the local police office but didnt think to call up until we had all arrived and travelled a good 7 miles in rush hour traffic! Anyway, area search, find the 'offenders'. They are actually legitimate contractors and the owner had forgot they were there that day. Suitable advice given to the owner. We resume.
11.30: Urgent attendance. Call to liase with the victim of an assault that had occured the previous night. As she was intoxicated statements could not be taken at the time. Simple statement regarding incident taken and passed onto investigating officer.
13.00: Foooooooooood! Subway of course
14.30: Damage Only TA comes in. Immediate response though as vehicles are blocking road. We arrive and find out it is a simple accident so no need to report for summons etc. No damage to any roadside furniture etc so only limited information needed be put on accident report. Vehicles are recovered and road is open and traffic flowing freely. We resume.
16.00: Hand over keys to late turn and update paperwork.
17.00: Go home.
Thats your lot, not loads. But then again are earlies ever that busy?
Posted 24 April 2008 - 08:52 AM
After a quick check we are off and pop up to our SNT office to say hi quite a few still in doing lots and lots of paperwork and a few faces i havent seen so i say hi and met my regular SNT sergeant semed a nice guy.So went off to have a look around where i will be covering and shown a few escape routes for people and then as diving down a road to see one we notice someone has pinched all the drain covers obviuosly for the scrap value so a phone call to control and local highways are informed and we are on our way.
Hear an assistance call go up as a unit have arrested a well known offender that loves beaing up police when arrested (apparently last time he was CAPTORED with 2 cans and still carried on fighting with 5 officers ) so we try and assist but rush hour traffic prevents us getting there and another crew arrive and deal .
On way back to area we hear an OBS call for male just stolen a bike so do an area search and have a word with a gfew people but nothing showing and even the dog handler couldnt find.
Adrenaline still going we get called to help out some PCSO's with a guy for possible public order offences and assist them.Once we arrive there seems to be a small hostile crowd and a guy in the PCSO's car i get told to take some details from witnesses and my inspector deals with the guy (ongoing so cant say anymore).Back to SNT office to do some paperwork over jobs and back out on the road nearing the end of my shift (amazing how quickly they go??) i have the lovely job of filling up the van at Tescos with the slowest cashier i have ever met and its time to nearly call it a night.
Whilst on route to station a car on the opposite side of the road is driving with no lights on and so we do a u turn behind him and half way up the road he u turns back on himself and we follow and he pulls off down a side road with us in tow whack on Blues and twos and over he goes i ask him to pop out of the car and he says why are the police not out catching real criminals and i simply point out that at 10pm driving down a road with no lights on is suspicious.Oh he says and im foreign i dont understand you so i ask for id and usual is car yours , insurance etc etc to which he hands me a driving licence and i.d i do my first PNC and all seems ok until he produces an MOT failure notice to us which was issued sum 7 hours before.Oppps my inspector then breathalys the guy and was negative and we ask for a traffic unit fior advice as the car had failed on some pretty major things and they then recommened under something to seize the car for examination purposes and after a while the guy just grabbed his things and went, recovery ordered and car gone within 15 minutes (apparently thats a miricale!!).
So like my first shift we end up tting a job by accident 30 min before the end (i can see my inspector not liking me before too long ) and that was that back to the station dekit and do a few photocopies of items and on my way home and again a whole 2 and a half hours later than i should have been.So as we have a specials van out this saturday i cant wait to see what happens!!
Posted 02 May 2008 - 01:34 AM
Length of Service: 5 Months
Time of Duty: originally meant to be 1900 to 2100 but soon changes!!
Start my shift at Maryfield office in Dundee with the intention of helping out with taskings that need done in the area following a large number of OLP's on vehicles and property.
Arrive at about 1840 to get changed and get my kit together (i live smack bang in the middle of the city centre so am reluctant to wear much of the uniform travelling to and from work). Get a radio easily and cs (pink one as always lol) then head to the main office to see who's about. Find one of my normal regs sitting doin paperwork and alone in the office so we begin talking and i find that i am to be working as his corroboration as there is noone else about. No taskings for me then, apparently i'm not missing much.
My reg goes off n gets last bits n pieces sorted before we go out on patrol and just before we go to head an immediate response call comes from a street along the road. Some guy is kicking in his girlfriends flat door and hurling abuse so we head along. Arrive and all is quiet and one of the upstairs neighbours appears to tell us the girl is in his relatives flat upstairs where she escaped to. Go up to speak to her and find that she has her 8 month old baby with her who is fast asleep after all the chaos. turns out she and her partner had been drinking and got into an arguement about past loyalties so she asked him to leave which he did after banging a few doors and nearly hitting her and the baby. he then returned to hurl abuse and kick at the door then climb in a window to gain access. she ran upstairs to the neighbours to get away fom him. she has obv had a drink so we take a note of this for child protection forms.
my reg goes downstairs to her flat to find the lad and his mum inside while i stay with the girl and the neighbour. another unit is needed while we take statements, then on the evidence we take the lad to HQ detained for a domestic breach. he gets really upset in the car and explains that it has all happened because they are both trying to come off heroin and so use alcohol to block the cravings (good choice apparently!)
Get him down and booked in, along with some intel on his drug source (well chuffed with myself! lol) and then talk to the seargent on the front desk who advises us to go back and get more statements from neighbours as he is denying everything. Go back and get another statment from an independant witness backing up the original statement, so head back and propmtly have his status changed to arressted. after telling him this he proceeds to become abusive, reeling off the exact phrases we have in the statement! haha!!
By this time it's nearly half 10 so we head back and as the night shift is comin on i decide to do another 4 hours to distract me from my uni work. Paired up with another reg i know and off we go to see someone about a stolen vehicle. Turns out it is a couple, one of which has just fallen off the wagon and her partner who is also intoxicated ([possibly drink and drugs). ask her what she wants to do, report it as stolen or just a look out request. she is slurring and pausing constantly then decides we are being patronising so doesn't want us to deal with it and she will speak to someone the next day. I ask the control room to put out a lookout request and we are on our way again.
Get a call to a bin fire so we attend and wait on the fire brigade who get it under control easily and see no reason to take it any further. off we go again, by this time it's about half 1. piece time at half 2 so we traul the streets for a while come across a few working girls and tell them to go home to which we are met with a variety of responses. I'm sure you can think of some!
Hits half 2 so we head back and i'm told i can head home if i want as there's no point me sitting about for half an hour. get changed, put my radio and cs back and get my book signed and i drive off into the night back home
Asleep as soon as my head hits the pillow!!

So back to do our house to house,Its quite funny some peoples reaction when a policeman knocks at the door sunday morning,

12-30 Resume patrol still very Q, driving round everybody is wearing their seatbelts today and cannot see anyone using a mobile phone while driving.

We arrive and all run through the shopping centre. See this chap on the floor in the training school ground pin position !!!
The chap who is detaining him reveals himself as an off duty officer who stepped in to help. Cool.
Nice crowd of people gathering as they do to see what is going on.
So cuffed cautioned recovered the stolen goods, looks good.
Take to the van, my first search, turns out to be a drug user.
Back to custody, the other two officers process him through custody, we go back to the shop to take a statement, I was allowed to do my first statement,

Your planned duty hours 0700-1700
Up at 0600 and after breakfast and a quick check of the news, cycled into the nick as usual - need to keep lean and nothing like a cycle in the rain to wake you up in the morning!
After a shower and change into uniform time to book on, read the shift brief, catch up on the intel from last night, check out my outstanding crimes screen and answer some property disposal requests. After hunting around for some panda keys I finally managed to find some (result the last car on the board was the air conditioned one and it was red hot!!). By 0745 I'm out of the door and on the prowl!
First job of the day is to a job which is all too familiar - another metal theft at a local school. I am familiar with the School staff now having been there 5 times in the last month. Fortunately they now know how I like my coffee!! Seize some CCTV, quick statement from the caretaker and a call to SOCO later I'm done. It's just before 0900 and the first HI of the day comes in - concern for female - a neighbour can hear screams coming from next door. There's only a couple of cars on but even though I'm on the opposite side of town I head over. Half way there and someone has arrived on scene and cancelled any further.
Having been cancelled I decide to have a drive around on the hunt for two of my favourite offences - mobile phone drivers and seatbelters!! No more than 45 minutes after starting looking I have issued 3 verbal warnings, 2 NEFPNs for seatbelts and 2 EFPNs for mobile phones. Another pet hate of mine (frustrated traffic officer I know) is non standard number plates. Spotting a car with an incorrectly spaced plate I decide to give him a quick tug.
"Is this your car sir" I ask. "No it's me mates" he replies. The little light in my head starts to flash and after a couple of quick questions and a PNC DL check I find the gentleman has neither a licence nor insurance. Comtempt interview at the road side then off to the nick to complete the summons.
Time for some state 4!! A lovely prawn sandwich and a bottle of diet coke later I am ready to hit the streets. Time to put some fuel in the panda!! Pulled into the garage and started to fill up only to be berated by my wife who was at the next pump for ignoring her - in honesty I was more concerned with trying to remember the list of things I needed to complete today!! After a quick catch up and ordering of my dinner I'm away to another HI job. This time there are children playing next to an open manhole and the caller believes one has fallen down the hole. Fire brigade and ambulance are en-route! When we all arrive (at the same time funnily enough) there are no children to be seen however the manhole cover is off. A quick call to control and the council are on their way to fix it up.
It's still a pretty quiet day round my patch so I pop to see the local shop keeper who has had years of problems with the local kids. We chat but I am soon dragged away when my spidy sense alerted me to a pesky mini moto rider driving down the pavements. Before I can get to my radio he's away down an alley not to be seen again!
Some paperwork, patrolling and catch ups with witnesses later it's 1615 and time to head back to the nick to update the intel log, clear up my jobs and head to the bike sheds to pick up my speed machine!! On the way home was nearly wiped out by a lorry driver on his mobile phone who didn't stop at the roundabout - will be seeing him again!!
A pretty quiet day - hopefully tonight will be a bit busier!!

Length of Service: 4 Months
Force: Dyfed Powys
Time of Duty: 18.15-04.30
Shift starts of as always by poping into SDO, booking out a radio and checking town CCTV to see how busy it is and to pick out trouble makers for later reference!
The go to report to SGT but grabbed by SC S/O and asked if i would want to go to an outer town station to pair up with a reg who was single crewed. Said yes of course so headed up to lockers to grab gas.
kit up and reg arrives at about 18.45/19.00, so jump in new Focus and head off to the area.
Do a routine patrol around his area which turns out to be massive and bigger than the town im usually in.
Call comes in to attend reports of a party on a beach, off we go!!
Back on patrol, few stop checs and PNC's. nothing of interest.
On the way back from the beach, follow a local bus known for having trouble makers on it. Gang of youths on it at the back and one in particular takes a shine to us and decides to give us the fingers and mouths of at us thorugh the window showing of to his matesso at the next stop, jump on and onto bus, tell drive the score and get the boy of the bus (still showing of to his mate) and warn him and say we'll arrest him if he carries on being abusive. Deliteful chap then tries to call our bluff and starts to walk to the police car saying come on then. Ok then, boys face drops and goes bright red. Back on the bus with his tail between his legs so to speak!!!!
Back on patrol. Lunch break, reg has paper work to do so i take out the other patrol car (4x4 jeep) out and go to a few hotspots. Return to station and immediate comes in, male is being abusive and threatening to mum with a stick. Male has mental health problems and previous so traffic unit called from town to back us up. 20 min flat out blues and twos drive to address in the sticks. Get there, calm situation down and get mum to move to friends for the night.
Back on patrol. Traffic stand down.
Back at station, paperwork when immediate comes in, women believed to be trying to committ suicide by jumping in river thats about 100m fro station. get there and it turns out she's dropped her precious gold neckless in the river . Decides to get it tomorrow.
Another call comes in at about 1 in the morning, misper. Attend address and do large area search. Reg does paper work.
Outer station closes and return to town. As i arrive and try to find SGT or other officers to pair up with call comes in, fighting in takeaway. Find a special whos just about to finish and convinvce him to stay on and to go to the call with me. Find SGT and get keys to unmarked car. Head to scene and hear updates that officers at scene have a suspect running away, get there and end up jumping thorugh hedges, over fences and through peoples gardens after him but don't find him
Resume patrol im unmarked car then and do another 2.5 hours till everythings is closed and most people have gone home. Back to nickwith the other SC, return everything and then head home at the end of an exciting shift as usual!!!
