  2. Asp's

    When I started I was issued a wooden truncheon that had a leather strap and it all slid into a special pocket on my woollen trousers. I was then isued a Monadnock PR24 and then an MX21 and finally an ASP. In over 25 years I only ever drew out the wooden truncheon and that was only once and only to break a window with it. Never had a cape but the Great Coat certaily meant that getting to any of your equipment was going to take a while. At least these days the equipment is a bit more accessible and you get training in it's use. The training I had for my truncheon was thus: 1. Never take your truncheon out unless instructed to do so by an Inspector or above 2. Never take your truncheon out unless it is a last resort 3. If you have to take your truncheon out then hit them with it as hard as you possibly can I must say I did like the PR24 but it was more cumbersome and trickier to use effectively. The MX21 was of all of them my preferred one and this felt right and proper. The Asp I never really liked and it never really felt like I could trust it. My old force still issue something along the lines of the ASP I had issued but it is a cheaper version, and apparently it can give you blisters on your fingers ( @Beaker ).

  12. What shall MOPs call you

    They can call me whatever they feel comfortable saying as long as it is respectful. If it is in the process of arresting they can call me what they like as I can accept they may not be happy about it and their emotions may be running high.
  13. Our Parade Room area can only be accessed by serving UK police officers (civilian police, either Special or Regular) PCSO's and civilian police staff. It's designed as an area where all members of the police family can discuss issues which they may not feel comfortable sharing in the more public areas of the forum, or with people who aren't themselves serving in a constabulary. Entry and use of the area continues to be free of charge. Once you've been granted access to the Parade Room area, a new award will be added to your profile (it will appear overnight as that's when all new awards are automatically added although on occasion it can appear before). How to get access to the 'In the Job' forum area: Method 1 Send an email to from a police email account (one which is of the format with the following information: Your full (real) name Which UK police force you work for Your rank/grade/job title (e.g. regular PC, Special Sergeant, PCSO, Staff member) Your collar number or force ID number Your username You must also raise a support ticket by accessing your client area under your name in the top right hand corner of the screen. Ensure you select the Verified Member option, this will open more boxes at the bottom of the screen These boxes must be completed to enable you to proceed On receipt of your email, it will be linked to your support ticket and you will be given access to the area - confirmed by reply to your police email address. The information you provide will only be used to confirm your right to access the forum area. Method 2 If you would prefer not to send an email from your work .pnn email, then raise a support ticket as per the instructions above and ensure you include your police email address. Once raised we will then email you at your police email address with a random word (which will of course be completely work safe!). You should be able to read 'incoming' email without breaching any force policy. Once you've read your police email, update your support ticket and tell us what the random word was. This will satisfy us that you have a police email account, and we can then give you access to the 'In the Job' area. Note: if you're going to use this method - which causes us the most work - then don't please just reply from your police email account. If you're going to do that anyway, just use Method 1 Method 3 We know that some officers don't have access to a police email account so as an alternative, you can send a scan of your warrant card or official ID card by raising a support ticket as per the above instructions and utilising the Attach Files option in the second picture. If you or your force are uncomfortable with sending pictures of your warrant card in this way, then simply don't do it.

    Busy but with very different policing priorities and issues. A larger area to cover and as it is a city with a University it has an additional facet to it. I enjoyed my time there although I worked more Fulwood side. If you come to Blackpool there is a good chance we will meet, although you may never know it
