  1. As far as I have been told.... if the CAD mentions a crime then a CRIS needs to go on. If you turn up..... no victim and no suspect then you still need to put a CRIS on...... If you turn up .... Victim doesn't want to report anything.... a CRIS needs to go on.
  2. 3 months statutory notice

    I managed to get my notice period down from 1 month to 1 week if required. But i did tell them in advance I had an application in. Luckily I found out 2 1/2 weeks before so gave that as my notice period. The HR do leave it last minute.

  8. Transferring from the Met - Requirements

    Hi All, I'm currently A Special with the Met and due to Work have moved into Surrey. I am curious as to the shift types in Surrey as I'm interested in working with Traffic or on Response, I've been a special for 18 months and I'm a signature away from IPS. I would also like to know the time taken to transfer and training required as I have to fit this around my day job. Thanks in advance, DJones

  11. What I Did On Duty

    Rank: SC Force: Metropolitan Police Length of service: 1st Shift Planned duty: 20:00 - 04:00 - Van patrol (times are estimate) 20:00 - book on and kit up, 20:10 - briefing and training 21:00 - 8 of us load up in the bus and off we go 21:20 - called to a domestic 2 officers jump out to deal with (couple didnt speak english so officers ended up calling a translator, that kept them busy all shift) 21:40 - called to a disturbance in a block of flats, children running around corridors making noise, (my first contact with the public in uniform) words of advice given. 22:00 - called to a missing person from a hospital needing to return for medical treatment, find them at their home address, LAS called. man taken to hospital so back on patrol 22:20 - see a man on a wall looking either ill or drunk. 2 officers jump out of bus to speak to him, man gets up and does a runner. 2 more of us jump out of the bus and a foot chase ensues. man runs down a dead end road. man is severly drunk, and wants to have a fight with the 4 of us. The bus everntually finds us and even with 6 of us now the man still wants a fight. PNC checked all clear, so we wish him good night and off we go. 22:40 - drive past a road where i thought i saw 2 men breaking into a car..... big mistake, 3 of us jump out to check as a carrier full of PCs coming back from the olympics pulls up and bail out. a bit overkill for nothing. (i felt really stupid but was reassured) 23:10 - called to a domestic outside a hospital, arrive at wrong exit and 4 of us bail out, cant find anything. other 2 officers drive to other entrance. As we walk round to correct entrace, we are passed by a woman who looks distressed with her child. luckily we have 2 females with us so they speak to the woman. get a desciption of suspect who later arrives and is politely detained. after questioning victim and child we find out an assault has taken place 00:30 - sgt tell us we are going to nick him and who wants to do it...... no volunteers, (oh look the new boy gets it) first arrest here we go. luckily i had been chatting with the suspect and he seemed quite friendly. cautioned him, he then turned around and put his hands ready for a back-to-back. this is really easy. no vans available so we put him in the bus with us. 00:50 - arrive at custody, prisoner booked in 01:20 - eab time 02:30 - eab finished 04:00 - handed over to CSU 04:20 - booked off and home time cant wait for tomorrow night
