  1. Does anyone know what the initial training commitments are for those IPS specials who have applied to come over to BTP?
  2. 'Theft'

    This has been progressed by regular officers. Unfortunately I cannot interview and have a full time job to attend too. I have since been told EMPLOYEE A was told in no uncertain terms that she needs to repay the money within the week or they would be interviewed and dealt with. EMPLOYEE A denied taking any money, but nonetheless repaid it in full as they 'felt guilty it had gone missing'. Community resolution for EMPLOYEE A. Edit; yes i did raise both eyebrows at hearing she repaid it, and got a community resolution. But denied ever stealing it?
  3. OCP - Specials numbers and taskings

    I was referring to training available to the Special constabulary, specialist or otherwise, compared to other forces.
  4. OCP - Specials numbers and taskings

    I think we're thought of in that light about most things to be fair.
  5. 'Theft'

    Not forgetting this money was intended for a cancer charity….
  6. OCP - Specials numbers and taskings

    RMS inputting rights are coming and courses are being booked at present. Intox should be available to all specials, the same as regulars. On the subject of training, Ive not received any interview training, but I've been involved in enough to happily and confidently conduct one. Will the force allow it??
  7. 'Theft'

    Mrs MIGGINS has just finished her charity event, held at sandford cricket club. The event was held to raise funds for a Cancer fund charity. Mrs MIGGINS is carrying the takings to her vehicle when she drops an envelope containing £185, part of the evenings total takings. Mrs MUGGINS, MIGGINS friend, finds the money and hands it to sand ford cricket club bar woman, EMPLOYEE A, who then deposits into the safe. Mrs Miggins arranges to collect the money before the end of the week but before this could happen, EMPLOYEE A leaves employment, and takes the money with her. Mrs MIGGINS texts EMPLOYEE A to get the money back. she replies she will return it soon. MIGGINS is told by police this is a civil matter, and she is to contact her solicitor. MIGGINS contacts EMPLOYEE A again and is told the money will be sent via post. A cheque arrives and is cashed by MIGGINS. This cheque bounces. MIGGINS then texts EMPLOYEE A to ask where the money is but receives no reply. Communication has now ceased. You are tasked with this. What would you do from here. EMPLOYEE A is unknown to police and has no pre cons.
  8. Restricted Hours

    Does your Force have anything in place to put restrictions on the amount of hours you are allowed to put in as a Special? For example the minimum is 16 hours, but SC Smith works on average 60-80 per month. SC Smith's line manager decides this is too much and restricts her to 30 per month. Is this a normal thing? Is it allowed? Ive heard some forces congratulate some specials for doing over 100 hours per month, present certificates etc. How can one force congratulate and others rebuke?
  9. Compliant Stop

    As per the form I just asked the optician, it seemed no trouble. With regards to the deficiency itself DT have informed me it's no great issue, just inform the instructor on the day. No great deal on the face of it, but wont know for definite until after the day has been and gone.
  10. Compliant Stop

    I have literally just been to see an optician to get the eyesight form as per the DT requirements. I have been deemed colour blind with a severe deficiency with green. To say I am gutted is an understatement. I am awaiting a call back from driver training but I fear this will make me unable to complete my upcoming driving courses. I have driven on the roads for 4 years, and can see all colours like everybody else. But when asked to identify numbers in the multicoloured book I performed very bad. Devastated…
  11. Compliant Stop

    That would explain the van booking request. If they're coming in a car that would also make sense to use that. Cant see me ever driving a sprinter unless the test fee comes out my own pocket…. not going to happen! Will update, this time next week.
  12. Compliant Stop

    From the instructions I have been provided with it would seem only a transit run has been offered. I will obviously find out on the day but was just looking for some foresight. Yes that is correct I do not have D1 unfortunately. I am phoning DT on monday as I need to discuss another issue and may well ask them for some clarification then. Thanks for the info
  13. Compliant Stop

    5460, thanks for that info. To clarify I am referring to a basic half day transit course. Once completed, does this allow for vans AND cars to be driven or must the student take both car and van courses?
  14. Compliant Stop

    So just to confirm, it is still the case that a transit check run allows you to drive cars aswell? Thanks..
  15. Ice bucket challenge……

    Assault? Criminal damage? I see what you're getting at, all in a good cause, community spirit etc etc. BUT, people who have undertaken the challenge have mostly been dressed appropriately, usually shorts and a t shirt, with no valuables on them. Im sure most of us are up for public interaction but officers are not there to be seemingly ridiculed or made the butt of pranks… If you're new iPhone was ruined would you hysterically laugh at the thought of a £000 repair bill?
