    Chewie, you had a cheek submitting a less than sub-standard response to a valid question to another poster, so it's not me who needs to wind anything in. Get a grip of your own self-importance. Remove what you will 'til your hearts content, if it makes you happy. Your petty threat of sanction obviously shows that you take umbrage at your statement being challenged. Your input into my question was not requested, so don't get the hump when someone tells you it was inadequate.

    What tone of response do you expect when you post a dismissive reply to a question which wasn't even directed at you?If you insist in replying to someone else's question, I suggest your answer has some substance to it and, ultimately, answers the question. It's for these reasons that so many threads on this forum go adrift. Back to topic me thinks??

    Eh?? On yer bike. My question is not "regardless of which force the poster may be from", as they'd cited their particular force, hence my valid question. A more suitable and useful response from you would have listed those forces to which you refer. Never mind.
  4. Why do people always run from me?

    And in other shocking news today, a dog chased his own tail and a PCSO was seen walking along the high street holding a Tesco carrier bag. Scrotes have been legging it from plod since the 1800's. It's what they do. It is commonly held that their need to get away is often greater than our need to catch them!

    Sorry, haven't done the mind reading NCALT yet. Which force might that be?

Just so the members of this forum have an opportunity to respond to this Home Office survey.....This consultation concerns those powers used in relation to street crime, burglary, anti-social behaviour, and public order offences such as riots and violent protests. It seeks views on the police powers of stop and search, specifically under the following legislation: Section 1 of the Police and Criminal Evidence Act 1984 (PACE) Section 23 of the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971 Section 60 of the Criminal Justice and Public Order Act 1994 This consultation runs for six weeks from 2 July 2013.

  7. Met Police Officers Facing Misconduct Over Harlem Shake Video

    Expect a directive next month telling officers NOT to engage in any kind of dancing at the Notting Hill Carnival??? (...as cringe-worthy as it is to watch!) Great video though!
  8. It must be so self-fulfilling when you have had the benefit of several years to micro-scrutinise the actions of another who had the unenviable task of making his decision in under a second.
  9. Confused Newbie! help!

    Its new leather, so its very stiff. Just manipulate it so your kit belt slides through it. Then try and stretch the loop so your cuffs go back in nice and easy!
  10. Would you pay for extra training

    <blockquote class='ipsBlockquote'data-author="double-six" data-cid="2433502" data-time="1368612936"><p> Hi all,<br /> <br /> With the budget restraints it can be hard to get the extra training that you want, especially if there is not necessarily a quantifiable benefit to your force in paying for extra training for specials. <br /> <br /> My question, would you be prepared to pay (either a part contribution or full cost) to have extra training to enable you to get involved in extra roles as a special?<br /> <br /> For example, public order training, taser, advanced driving, etc.<br /> <br /> And how many wouldn't out of principle rather than cost?<br /> <br /> </p></blockquote> Nope. Not a chance.
  11. Thanks for the update. I hope he gets what he deserves.
  12. Man jailed for breaking police officers leg

    Its what the judiciary do best. They're incompetent and completely out of touch.
  13. BBC: Motorcyclist Andrew Kelly jailed over 122mph ride

    Absolutely comical and the highest levels of stupidity I have seen in ages.
  14. BTP Officers in Driving Cabs

    Thanks, that's answered my query.
  15. BTP Officers in Driving Cabs

    NIRM is an LU grade for Network Incident Response Manager and is a relatively (within the last 2 years) new grade and their remit is LU network wide. There is another grade on LU called DRM (Duty Reliability Manager) but their remit is generally line based. Not 100% sure of how the ATOC's MOM (Mobile Operations Manager) compares to these or whether they're employed by Network Rail or by an ATOC (Association of Train Operating Companies, one of the rail firms in layman terms).
