Right, when I started this blog before my training I thought that I would update this every couple of weeks or so, so that people could follow my journey and whatnot.
Low and behold it's been two and a half months since my last entry and not only have I started training, I've finished it too!
Training was great fun though was pretty intense at times as it was all weekend and two evenings a week for 8 weeks. Had some bad times like the pain of CS and some great times like every other bit of OST, first aid was a fun weekend too.
So now I'm a fully warranted police officer, yikes!
I've been 'in' for two weeks now and have already done 4 shifts. Not the most thrilling shifts mind you as I'm currently on Public Order in the city centre and no one seems to be getting in too much trouble while I'm about , probably because there are so many of us on shift and there seems to be an officer around most corners in the centre at weekends. I guess that's what the higher ups want to be honest, so many of us that no crimes get committed. But if no one's being naughty we don't have anything to do......had a couple of blue light runs in the van mind you, there was just nothing happening when we arrived.
My next shifts are Good Friday and Easter Saturday so hopefully people will be a bit naughtier er...ahem...in the party mood .
