    Lest We Forget

    That is Dulce et Decorum est by Wilfred Owen. The last two lines mean 'it is sweet and right to die for your country.' x

    NATO Phonetic Alphabet

    We've not long done it at Cadets. Everyone was struggling to spell out their names and there I was spelling Azerbaijan. Fun times.

    Biteback Scenario

    If I were a Constable (only a Cadet right now) I think that I'd deal with the situation in hand (e.g. the disturbance or the shoplifter) and then, once detained, have a quick word with the Parks Officers or Security Staff and just check, giving them a few words of advice. Probably the easiest way to go.

    Lest We Forget

    For those men, women, children and animals who put their lives at risk at their own personal sacrifice so that we could live ours in peace, my admiration is eternal. May I remind you all to please honour those who gave their livelihood to protect each and everyone of us on this special day. I shall leave each and every one of the members of this forum with a quote I adore: 'We shall not sleep, though poppies grow in Flanders fields.' Lest we forget.

    First Aid

    The FPOS is my highest level so far. Comes in very handy though. Could you get training through Public Order Unit? Just a thought.
  8. I can only hope, as you do, that he didn't but if he did, he is punished severely as a consequence. I stand in solidarity with my Policing colleagues. Stay safe out there! In relation to your side note, I very rarely read it. I only found the article via Google: I read the BBC News, The Daily (F|M)ail and the York Press locally (it's public, I know.) You wouldn't think so. I have every confidence he will be severely punished.
  9. The latest I heard from The Mirror (a pinch of salt, I know ) is that he deliberately hit the officer; lets wait and see.

    Reporting homophobic abuse

    Surely the fact that a person is making homophobic comments in itself causes me alarm meaning that it's a Section 5 POA. If it was intentional to cause alarm, then it's a Section 4 POA I think?

    Sky News: Man shot by Police after Taser fails

    It's not the first time Taser has failed. However, I have to question the decision to shoot the man. Yes, the Taser failed and yes, they were correct in the deployment of Firearms Officers as per NPIA Stay Safe guidance but shooting him? Seriously? Wouldn't PAVA have been a better option under the National Decision Making Model? Of course, I can't say anything about the circumstances but just my tup'pence.
  12. Thank you! It is truly heartbreaking but heartwarming to see the risk you're all at to hold the Office of Constable. Stay safe out there. Possibly though unlikely. Regardless of what happens in terms of joint enterprise, I can only hope that the sick person(s) responsible for this grave act are brought to justice.
  13. As you say, there's nothing we can do to reverse the tragedy but to ensure we do our very best to make sure this doesn't ever occur again. Although I'm only a Cadet, I have the greatest of respect for each and every one of you; both Regulars and Specials. #staysafe

    A few weeks in

    Having started my initial twelve week training two weeks ago this coming Wednesday, we've so far learned about bullying, equality and diversity. I've not really got that much to say yet to be perfectly honest as we've not done much. All I can say is that everybody seems nice and we're all getting more confident around each other already. Also: I'm writing this post on one of the most tragic days for each and everyone of the big family that we are. 10-11 Constable Phillips, you can stand down for the last time.
  15. It's a true tragedy that one of our own has been brutally murdered in such tragic circumstances. I never personally knew Constable Phillips but he sounds like a man devoted to his family and the job, dedicated to risking your own life to help others. My condolences are with his family and those who knew him at this dark time. I have every hope that the person/s responsible for this crime shall be brought to justice. 10-11 Constable Phillips, you can stand down for the last time. R.I.P.
