    'S' division

    Not one I've heard of before, can you give us a bit of context?

    Changing requested area?

    Changing before you start should be really simple, just contact recruitment. That said, its not much hassle to change once you're in either, just need to request a transfer. I was a special where I lived though, and I'm now a PC where I live (and I'm moving even closer to the nick soon). So far, it's never caused me an issue.

    GMP warrant card holders

    You have to request one. Get the uniform order form off the intranet and forward it onto your divisional admin department.

    Gym at Sedgley

    In answer to the original question, yes there is a gym. You need to do an induction and then you can use. It's small and basic. The second question: Very few nicks still have them, and usually you need to be a member of the sports and social to use them.

    Common offences as a special

    Depends what type of special you are. I got involved in all sorts, but I know specials who only ever did night time economy stuff, so only really did public order stuff
  7. Unless his mate was at risk of being killed imminently, which he didn't seem to be, I can't see how you could ever really justify booting someone round the head.

    Charging Suspects in Custody

    Our sgts make the charge/new decision, and they definitely make bail decisions! Also when I said never earlier, I didn't literally mean never, it'd just highly unusual.

    Charging Suspects in Custody

    Our sgts never charge. I've charged before because I just happened to be stood doing nothing at the time. Here, it's just a case of reading off a screen.

    It'll vary force to force. We used to get expenses for travel during training (not for food though, as that was provided). We couldn't claim back medical cost though.

    I'm accepted!

    Yep, it was free when I joined as an SC, but as a PC I had to pay, and we were told we had to have the 2015 version!

    I had to pay for mine

    Locating Wanted People

    How good is your knowledge of RIPA? To be perfectly honest, if he's proving that hard to find you might struggle as an SC to really do anything new. Stick with address checks etc.

    Are SCs still issued Blackstones?

    The Forum General Chat Thread

    It's a while since I did a vehicle pnc, but iirc, if the tax is out of date it'll display the date it expired.
