A few weeks in

Posted by connorgurney in Cadet Gurney, 05 October 2015 - - - - - - · 8 views

Having started my initial twelve week training two weeks ago this coming Wednesday, we've so far learned about bullying, equality and diversity.
I've not really got that much to say yet to be perfectly honest as we've not done much. All I can say is that everybody seems nice and we're all getting more confident around each other already.

This'll be my only post in this blog, and likely one of the few/the only blog(s) I'll ever write. I've decided to set it out like a story with certain chapters to give it a story-esque feel to it, and I won't fully publish this until I'm completely happy with it.

The Iceman So why do they call me The Iceman ?
Well, 'The Iceman' is my real life nickname and is something that was founded by my beloved colleagues in the police. Back in the big freeze of 2012, I was on the night shift and anticipated below freezing weather. As this was going to be the case, I decided to be the smart cookie and ensure I was wearing all...


Please Ma’am, take a walk in my boots…

Posted by potter123 in potter123's Blog, 28 May 2013 - * * * * * · 705 views

I have been a serving police officer for six years. In this time, I have learnt that police officers tend to hang back from the truth when it comes to emotion, and I include myself in that. I have dealt with some serious incidents where I walk away saying I’m fine, and its another day at work, but inside I cant help but feel shocked and on one...

Just back from another interesting trip - House of Commons this time and although I've dropped off and picked up a number of times outside, this was my first trip inside.

We arrived in plenty of time so he insisted we grab some 'fresh air?!' and exercise while killing some time on the Embankment; we took a nice 'Spooks Stroll' down...

The Final Inspection

Author: Author Unknown
The policewoman stood and faced her God,
which must always come to pass.
She hopes her shoes were shining
just as brightly as her brass.

"Step forward now, policewoman.
How shall I deal with you?
Have you always turned the other cheek?
To my church have you been true?"

The policewoman squared...

Well I thought it would be about the right time to try and write in this thing and get down my story for other people to take reference from.

I first thought about becoming a police officer at the age of about 9 or 10. I remember that I always used to watch The Bill and fly on the wall police documentaries (like...

After years of wanting to become a Police Officer (it was a childhood want), I finally took the plung and enquired as to how to go about this amazing career. I was slightly disheartened when I was told that, unfortunatly the police are not recruiting at this time - though their are a number of Volunteer roles I may be interested in.

So I checked the info...
