Another job the other day.
After spending a few hours on foot, it got to about 10pm and we decided to get refs, return to the nick, have refs and see if any vehicles were available.
We returned to the nick and found 3 regs and a Sgt in the refs room who were discussing crewing a carrier (which we call 'team policing' on weekend nights). As there were so few of them, we asked if they wanted us to come along so we planned 2 regs, Sgt and 4 specials on a carrier and another 2 regs in a van doing curfew checks.
We finished our refs before we jumped on the carrier and went out to a few jobs.
We were sent to a domestic called in by a neighbour where a female could be heard shouting. There was previous history and the male we suspect could be involved is on court bail not to contact the female.
We rock up at the house and all jump out. 2 scale the fence and go around the back whilst the others waited at the front for her to open the door. As we were standing there, a dog in the corner of the garden who nobody had spotted stands up and walks over to us.
There was a long delay in the female opening the door and in such time the dog had ran off and a reg had gone after it to call it back. He manages to get the dog back before the female opens the front door. She eventually does and we all pile in, sending the dog in the house.
After speaking with the female for a few minutes she says 'Why are there so many of you and why have you brought a dog?'
Queue us looking at each other before realising we had chased, collected and let a random dog run around in her house.
Awkward few moments as we find the dog in the kitchen and kick it out of the house.
