    not replying to emails (rant)

    What winds me up is you email someone and they never reply, but then get funny when you don't reply immediately to one of their messages.

    Duty bag

    http://www.niton999.co.uk/shop/product_view_Niton-Basics-Patrol-Bag_code_NB006.html I just got one of those. I can get my yellows, fleece, hat, maglight and paperwork in there easily enough.

    Suicidal Female

    This exact scenario happened at my day job in our public toilets. The lady in question got sprayed and suffered a baton strike to her arm, and the officers involved both received commendations from the force. That's all I know as it was before I joined up!
  4. In Warks our basic permit allows for patrol, A to B and compliant stop. We're allowed to drive the response Focuses and new Astras, both marked and unmarked. We'd be buggered if we weren't allowed to patrol as in my patch we cover both town and rural areas. I do on average around 80-100 miles each shift just driving around.

    I don't think they'd want to! All BMWs are rear wheel drive, which would be a nightmare in the winter. I know our traffic guys aren't too happy with the Volvos being replaced by them.

    Recruitment Evening

    Well I found i easy, but there were people who failed when I did it, which to be honest was shocking as it's only 5.4 on the beep test so you only need to be able to jog for a few minutes. Some of the smaller girls did struggle with the push/pull test though which is understandable. If you were to fail on one section though they will offer suggestions and ideas as to how to improve your fitness or strength ready for next time.

    Recruitment Evening

    Sorry for the delay in replying. As has already been said, don't worry about preparing for anything and don't worry about dress code either as there isn't one! You'll be given a pack after the evening has finished which outlines exactly what the interview will entail. Just ensure you prepare properly and you'll be fine. Don't worry about nerves putting you off, the interviewers are very understanding and there is usually a serving senior special there as well.
