    Footwear choice

    I have never heard of police issue boots or shoes. That's why we get an annual allowance for them. Has it changed? If so, then why aren't other forces doing it? G
  3. Ok, I'll accept £150 for the torch and battery holder...that's the lowest that I can go
  4. Ok...I get the hint that maybe £5 is too dear Will anyone give me £3 for it then.....with free postage? G
  5. Still for sale...any reasonable offer considered.
  6. Hi Rocket, It's like using a floodlight..honest! Although, the head of the torch gets hot, and goes through batteries big style. Hence it has only been used on the odd occasion.....do PM me if you want more info. G
  7. Folks, we are in 'Scenario City', so I made a few things up......... The point that I was trying to make was the provoke a discussion on the use of personal equipment whilst on duty. In other words, it may be naughty of you to use kit that has not been authorised and issued by the police force. G
  8. What if I was to say that the cop got suspended and the case got dropped
  9. That's my point The goggles are not authorised issue.....
  10. Scenario: cop searching woods for a male suspected of committing burglary in the hours of darkness. There is only one way in and out, and the cop has seen the guy run into the woods, and he has the entrance covered. He radios for the assistance of a dog and handler.....they will not be able to attend for over 1 hour. The cop knows that he has his own personal night vision goggles in his kit bag, and considers using them. He tracks the suspect down in minutes, and arrests the guy. What's your thoughts on this then folks? G

  12. The M4 is a high-output incandescent flashlight featuring a 2.5-inch Turbohead that produces a tight beam for long-range illumination and special shock isolation to reduce the chance of failure of its lamp from impact or vibration. It uses a precision micro-textured reflector and a SureFire incandescent lamp to produce a smooth, brilliant beam with more than enough power to temporarily blind and disorient an aggressor by impairing his night-adapted vision, or to reach out and illuminate distant objects and areas. Output is either 225 or 350 lumens, depending on which easy-to-install lamp you use—high-output or ultra high-output. The tactically-correct pushbutton tailcap switch provides secure, ergonomic activation control: press for momentary-on, twist for constant-on. CB model available with crenellated Strike Bezel®. Features * Brilliant white light from high-output lamp (included) * Special shock-isolation for lamp protects against failure from recoil or impact * Precision 2.5" micro-textured reflector creates tight, smooth, extended-reach beam * Coated tempered window resists impact, maximizes light * model comes with crenellated Strike Bezel® * High-strength aerospace aluminum body, Mil-Spec hard-anodized for extreme durability * Tactical tailcap switch—press for momentary-on, twist for constant-on * Weatherproof O-ring and gasket sealing * Includes high-energy 123A batteries with 10-year shelf life I will throw in a spares carrier and some batteries. Please, no time wasters, only genuine offers... G Edit: paid over £300 for the kit.

    I got pulled up by fake police

    We don't issue forms in Central. Folks details are taken and noted in our note books. However, if a consensual knife search is carried out, then the persons details are registered on the system before the end of the shift. As per my earlier advice, I would strongly advise making contact with your local police office and make them aware of your encounter. There will be no harm done if it turns out to be genuine. I have seen lots of police ID's, some appear to have been through the mill - photo and words faded with broken corners etc. G
