  1. Is anybody active in this forum?

    Evening, I am a Special Sergeant in Gloucestershire Constabulary. Give us a shout if you need anything, PM where you are hoping to be based.
  2. SC and DV clearance

    That's mainly detailed towards defence contracts of all security levels and not just DV. I don't know where it says you can fast track DV in that link. Any way Im not going to argue with you.
  3. SC and DV clearance

    You can't fast track DV clearance. And it's not something you or your employer can buy or put you through. It's government related normally. Meaning government departments put you through it. Certain areas of the police require it, aswell as other departments such as intelligence agencies.
  4. Introduction

    I have the magnum command boots, they are a good mid priced boot and comfy. Only thing is they squeak a lot! I mainly wear my grafter stealth boots as I think these are more comfy. Like forestcop said, you will get hundreds of opinions, also depends on if you want to invest your own money into them.
  5. When is a vehicle actually parked?

    I'm pretty sure the engine has to be off to be considered parked. The same goes for using a mobile phone in a vehicle. The engine has to be off and the vehicle has to be stationary I.E parked.
  6. Obstructing police?

    Ex--Special does can D&D only happen on a Saturday night then? ;-)
  7. Stealthy approach?

    There isn't a set way to respond to an incident, if you want to turn your sirens off so they don't hear you then do it. I went to a burglary in progress the other day, we didn't use our sirens and and we parked away from the house so they wouldnt see or hear our cars. We then sneaked round like ninjas, turned out to be a false alarm anyway.
  8. Just a few questions...

    I am a Cirencester officer, if you have any questions about the area I would be happy to help.
  9. Did you mean in your force or as a whole? In Gloucestershire Constabulary we have our warrent cards in a leather wallet with the force crest/badge on the other side.
  10. Police Ranks. -Meaning And Duties

    The higest rank I have worked with was a superintendent on an Op, driving round in a van. He was one of the most interesting and genuine people I have worked with in the police. And from that duty I gain a massive amount of respect for him, but on a normal day on my patch the highest rank you see on mobile patrol/foot patrol is inspector, unless there is an operation on and then cheif inspectors sometimes come out to play.
  11. Belt Vs Vest

    Going of topic for a few seconds, Lucas does that PCSO have a firearm in your little picture?
  12. Police zap dog in puppy attack with Taser gun

    I wouldnt imagine PAVA would have much of an effect on dogs as they have undeveloped tear ducts and fur that protects them from the spray.
  13. Points to Prove Booklets

    Morning, I have just PM'd you :new_no:
  14. Yet again

    India also have a space program yet receive millions in aid from the UK. The country we live in has gone mad and needs to get its priorities right.
  15. Hi all!

    Nino best speak to the HR department as they would be able to give a more accurate answer then we can.
