    So can i just check.. If they caused crim dam, whilst trespassing on this roof. Would it be burglary? Or does the suspect have to be within the building itself?
  2. Scott4184


    Well you couldn't do anything to make them get down, other then call up for uniformed units. Correct me if I'm wrong.. Could it be burglary if they're on the roof.. Or do they have to enter the building itself? Obviously I'm still learning, so go easy on me!

    Kit bags

    Haha. Thanks! Got my first shift next week, so i'll see how it goes. In sussex we don't have the rigid cuffs, so i guess i can only use a pouch for them.
  4. Im guessing that as long as you declare all the mods to your insurance provider, there won't be a problem.. If you don't then it invalidates insurance and also a case of fraud? So i've been told..

    Today i walked the dog in my local park, and spotted 7-10 teenagers kicking a ball against a wall of a bowls centre. The roof is fairly low as the grass is at a higher level then the entrance. But it does require help to jump on. However, a couple of the kids were running / jumping around on the roof. I've only just attested so i haven't done a shift yet. I thought about going over and asking them to get down, which i felt confident in doing. Its just the what ifs that threw me off. Instead i text a mate who i knew was on shift to go do the deed. Now I'm thinking about it.. What would you of done? Bear in mind that you were still waiting for your first shift..

    Special Constabulary uniform

    In Sussex, you now get it after all the training. So at the last possible opportunity before the attestation.
  14. I feel like i should say that the training has completely changed within Sussex now. I have just finished my training (yesterday). Its now like this for specials: You start off with a introduction day. (I didn't go to this due to work). Then you do 5 blocks of CKP - Certificate of Knowledge of Policing. This is all the law based lessons. Wednesday evening and all day Saturday every other week. At block 5 you have a test. Fairly easy. No one on my group failed. Then a one day first aid course. Then you go straight onto PST - Personal Safety Training. This is just 2 weekends Saturday and Sunday, Here you learn the following: Compliant handcuffing to the rear Compliant handcuffing to the front. Handcuffing in the prone position. (On the floor) Baton techniques. PAVA (The spray) Spit guard LRS (Leg restraints) How to carry someone whilst handcuffed and in leg restraints. Cell extraction. (Placing someone in cell whilst cuffed and how to get out safely) Blocks and strikes using your hands. Pressure points 5 Step I think thats everything. You then have 2 tests. Again, both easy. You have 1 practical that covers some of the above. Then 1 written exam. After this you have a weekend of IT and Airwave training. Nice easy weekend After all of this you have 3 days left! A Friday night and all day Saturday and Sunday. On Friday you do a bit of PNC learning, then... You get the uniform!! Saturday is a RPU day. You learn how to place cones.. How to breathalyse and other bits. Sunday is Scenario day. This was the best day for me. This is where everything you learned comes into practice. Then finally attestation! This is how it is now.. I don't want to give too much away, but if you have any other questions about it, please ask!
