    Charging Suspects in Custody

    Your first paragraph is rubbish quite frankly. Do explain how charging someone is not being Independant? The custody officer does not authorise a charge/caution/nfa/bail. That is for another PS with the Evidential Review Officer status behind them, or the cps. The custody officer will process the DP in accordance to what has been authorised and if this means reading a charge out and issuing it under the Officer in the Case warrant number, that does not breach pace whatsoever.
  2. She's very vocal I agree but the panel don't follow her which is great.
  3. You make it sound like she is the power holder? She isn't, at all. She has one vote out of many.
  4. I hope she gets summons to court and stuck on!

    27th October Intake

    Email. Phone call only if you are behind or they have problems with your vetting/references.
  6. I think you'll find with the new ACTP, eating in public will be a matter of course and very much asked by all officers, due to the upcoming confidence figure not hitting it's requirement.

    Stage 1 training - Housed or not anymore?

    10 weeks? You sure that's right? Best of luck to the OP. You sound keen, your mission is to keep that energy up!

    Should London Metropolitan Police be Armed?

    To answer this thread, No and never in my view. We should all, as a standard PEE, be issued with taser though.

    Newham Borough

    Firstly. Newham isn't the be an end all of the MPS. I do three years as a special on there and I was part of the management team for the specials for a number of years. However it is a very good borough to learn your core bread and butter from. Which is what I personally did. Now as a regular. I enjoy the other side (as I did more than full time hours as a special), and yes there is more to the met than KF. however bunch of good people who after two years I've kept in contact with and still go out monthly with them. Be ready to get stuck in and have the right attitude and you'll be just fine.

    Crime Investigation Books

    If this certain borough is in the East Area, they seem to be creating all sort of trial products and replacing X, Y and Z almost every day from what I hear. Will be interesting to see what is issued the stamp of approval from TP.
