    Online Apollo Tests

    A topic, which I think, may or may not have been covered before. Does anyone know of anywhere, where you can get specific help with the Situational Judgement Test that is being done by some of the forces? I am literally at my wits end here, as I have failed on this particular test yet again. It is for Regular recruitment, not to be confused with the one that is done for the Specials, as I have passed that without any problem. I am happy to relocate to another neighbouring force, but, unfortunately for me, my home force and neighbouring forces (that I share the border with) all do these online pre-stage tests. As a serving SC, the last thing I ever want to do is stir a hornets' nest. This is my lifelong goal and it is driving me mad now that I always seem to come a cropper on this test, even though I am absolutely certain I am submitting the required answers?
  2. Officers were reportedly attending a stag party in the capital Vilnius and are now under invesigation over the incident The Lithuanian capital, Vilnius. Photograph: Alamy Seven police officers have been arrested while on holiday in Lithuania following a brawl. Scotland Yard said the Metropolitan police officers were detained in Vilnius, the countrys capital, and are under investigation. The Sun reported that the men were in Lithuania for a stag party, and the newspaper published pictures appearing to show them bloodied and stumbling as they were handcuffed and put in to police cars in the city, which is a popular tourist destination. A Met police spokesman said: The directorate of professional standards is aware seven police constables from territorial policing were arrested on Saturday 22 November whilst on leave in Vilnius, Lithuania. Inquiries into what has taken place are ongoing but are at an early stage. The DPS will liaise with Lithuanian authorities. A Lithuanian prosecutor, Marius Zupkauskas, told The Sun: I personally gave them bail after they paid 5,000 Lithuanian Lita which is about £1,000. If we decide to charge them they will have to return to Lithuania for a trial. The Met spokesman said that the officers had not been suspended, but he added that if the Lithuanian authorities charged the men we will obviously evaluate that decision.

  3. Hello all! I am applying for special constable at TVP I have been given mixed responses from TVP recruitment and TVP vetting 3years ago I was given a Youth Restorative Disposal for harassment at the time the officer said this will not Effect me in the future and when joining the police. As this is not a caution or conviction will this affect me? Thanks
  4. Link attached to a current news story......Perhaps best suited to 'News' section so feel free to move mods'.....if appropriate? I personally am angry at the way said chap is being treated http://www.guardian....nge-bail-sweden Wikileaks founder Julian Assange is pictured through the heavily tinted windows of a police vehicle. Photograph: Carl Court/AFP/Getty Images Sweden tonight decided to fight a British judge's decision to grant bail to WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, who has spent more than a week in prison over sexual assault allegations involving two Swedish women. A dramatic day in and around City of Westminster magistrates court saw Assange win bail, but then be forced to return to what his lawyer Mark Stephens described as "Dickensian conditions" at Wandsworth prison while the international legal battle played out. Sweden has decided to contest the granting of bail to Assange, who is being held pending an extradition hearing, on the grounds that no conditions imposed by a judge could guarantee that he would not flee, a legal source told the Guardian. The appeal will be heard by the high court this week. If he wins, Assange will still have to raise £200,000 in security to meet his bail conditions before being freed. Howard Riddle, the same senior district judge who last week ordered Assange be held on remand, granted bail with strict conditions, including a curfew and the wearing of a tag. Today's developments represent a small but significant victory for Assange, who is being forced to fight the Swedish sex crime allegations in the midst of a tsunami of controversy after the publication by WikiLeaks of thousands of classified US government cables. The court drama came as a further tranche of cables was released detailing often futile efforts by the US and UK – involving substantial amounts of British taxpayers' money – to block the thriving drug route from west Africa to Europe. The cables reveal countries struggling to cope with the booming trade while government officials sabotage anti-smuggling measures, officials tip off traffickers and vast shipments from South America pass through under the noses of customs. In one cable the president of Ghana is even forced to ask UK officials for help in screening his own entourage, who he fears could be carrying drugs through airports. Today, in a packed courtroom, Assange's barrister, Geoffrey Robertson QC, dismissed claims his client was a flight risk, saying that as a result of the past fortnight's WikiLeaks stories, his face was known worldwide. Robertson also gave a taste of what Assange's argument could be when the extradition case begins in earnest. He said there was no allegation that Assange had used violence or injured the two women making allegations against him, and said one allegation that he had sex with a woman while she slept might not be an offence under English law. Robertson said that even if Assange was convicted in Sweden, sentencing practice there meant he might not be jailed. Assange had been interviewed by Swedish police over the allegations on 30 August and vehemently denied any wrongdoing, Robertson said. Assange sat behind a plastic screen during the hearing, dressed in a dark jacket and open-neck white shirt. Asked by the judge if he understood that breach of his bail would lead to his arrest, he replied: "I understand that, your honour." The bail conditions are that security of £200,000 is deposited with the court before Assange is freed, as well as two sureties of £20,000 each from two named people. Assange's passport must remain with the police and he must not apply for any international travel documents. He must stay at a country mansion owned by a friend, Vaughan Smith, and observe curfews from 10pm to 2am, and then from 10am to 2pm. During those periods the judge said he would be electronically monitored via a tag. Assange will also have to report to a nearby police station every evening. Smith was one of two people to pledge £20,000 in surety, money that could be lost if Assange were to breach his bail conditions or attempt to abscond. His estate, Ellingham Hall, on the Norfolk-Suffolk borders, is set in 600 acres. Restaurant designer Sarah Saunders also pledged £20,000 in surety. Asked why, she told the court: "Because I believe he would not let me down – he is a good friend … He will always do what he says he will do." The court heard that internationally renowned figures including a Nobel prize-winning scientist, Sir John Sulston, and the film-maker Michael Moore were also backing Assange. But a starkly different portrait of Assange was painted in court by Gemma Lindfield, representing the Swedish authorities, who said that "complaints have been made by two women of a serious sexual nature". Opposing bail, she said: "The court has already found Mr Assange is a flight risk and nothing has changed since last week." The judge disagreed, however, and said that since last week police had "verified" the address Assange would stay at if granted bail. He also said that last week he had been under the impression the prosecution was claiming there was no record of Assange entering the UK. The UK Border Agency had now told him it was not uncommon for there to be no such record even if someone had arrived perfectly legally. Outside court, Stephens said: "It is impossible to say how long it will take before Julian Assange is out. The problem is £200,000 cannot be put in by cheque as that takes seven days to clear. So I have to go around to find cash and have it delivered to court, and until the court has it an innocent man stays in jail." He condemned Sweden's decision to appeal against the bail ruling: "They are continuing to persecute Mr Assange … An innocent man is in custody." Assange's mother, Christine, who flew over from Australia, said: "I am very happy with the judge's decision and I thank you all so much for supporting Julian." Earlier she released a statement from her son in which he said: "My convictions are unfaltering. I remain true to the ideals I have expressed. This circumstance shall not shake them. "We now know that Visa, MasterCard, PayPal and others are instruments of US foreign policy … I am calling for the world to protect my work and my people from these illegal and immoral attacks."
  5. Thought there was a topic on this already but not been able to find it.
  6. One for the locker room I think.
  7. I saw this reported on the BBC website earlier but oddly it seems to have disappeared. :new_hmmm:
  8. Hello, Passed my Day 1, Day 2 soon and was form filling, when I noticed that my application e-mail contains a rather childish word. Not offensive at all just a bit childish. Tell me, is the e-mail you used throughout your application process kept? Or can you change your off duty e-mail at some point? I would ultimately like for this e-mail to not be affiliated with me at all after the process. As I would create a fresh professional one once finished. Thanks alot

  10. http://m.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-birmingham-22887138 A man has been warned after he dialled 999 to complain about a prostitute's looks after meeting her.West Midlands Police said they were contacted by the caller who said he "wished to report her for breaching the Sale of Goods Act".The force said the call was received at about 19:30 BST on Tuesday complaining that the woman was not as attractive as she had claimed.Officers have now sent the man a letter warning him about wasting police time.West Midlands Police said the man had claimed he met the woman in a hotel car park."The caller claimed that the woman had made out she was better looking than she actually was and he wished to report her for breaching the Sale of Goods Act," a spokesperson for the force said."When he raised this issue with the woman concerned, she allegedly took his car keys, ran away from the car and threw them back at him, prompting him to call police."'It was unbelievable'During the call, the man can be heard to say: "I've arranged a meeting with her, but beforehand I've asked her for an honest description, otherwise when I get there I'm not going to use her services."Basically she has misdescribed herself, misrepresented herself totally."She was angry because she obviously thinks I owe her a living or something."Sgt Jerome Moran, based at Solihull police station, called the man back to offer some advice.He said: "It was unbelievable - he genuinely believed he had done nothing wrong and that the woman should have been investigated by police for misrepresentation."I told him that she'd not committed any offences and that it was his actions, in soliciting for sex, that were in fact illegal."Despite the man refusing to give his details, police were able to identify him and have sent him a letter warning him about his actions.The Sale of Goods Act 1979 gives consumers legal rights, stipulating goods which are sold must be of satisfactory quality, be fit for purpose and must match the seller's description. Is there no end to what people will call the police about ?
  11. So as you may or may not be aware I'm a response PC and Ex-Special, and as such I feel I had to bring this little incident up even though my colleagues didn't seem too bothered by it. Picture the scene. 2nd nightshift, 4th 12+ hour shift. Call to a bar brawl between a group of females. We rock up in our response vehicle, the pub doors are locked up. I bang on the door and a few seconds later it opens. The scene in front of me astounds me, inside are 2 MSC who I'd not heard on the radio at all, between these two feuding groups looking as befuddle as I felt. I'd asked them what had happened and all I got was "There's been a fight". I'm no Sherlock Holmes but this I could see, a woman with a cut to her face, another with a bleeding lip and a third with a rather large black eye which had swollen into a golf ball. I waded in and the door shut behind me, it was the manager (So I later found out) I turn around and say open that door, he said that the other officers said it was OK to shut it. I pulled it open and said it was to be left open. So I'm faced with a situation where it's me talking to one lady and my colleague talking to the other two, all who have been involved in a fight that was ongoing when the Specials turned up. It later transpired that they were all going to get nicked for affray. A couple of gripes I had with that situation; 1) Where was the TOA on the radio from the Specials on scene? 2) Why did they bundle into a pub fight AND let the staff lock the door behind them ? 3) Why did they wonder off into the moonlight once I turned up? 4) Where's the statements for when this goes to court? P.S For anyone that knows me on a personal level you'll know this isn't Special bashing, this is the simple stuff that I did when I was a special and I want to know why it wasn't done then.
  12. As serious as this case is, locker room seems the best place for it!

    Songs for G4S

    Judging by the comments on twitter ect about the official G4S song, I think we can do better and recommend more appropriate songs for them. I'll start, I'm going for One in Ten by UB40
  14. http://www.guardian.co.uk/uk/2012/jun/20/g4s-chief-mass-police-privatisation Investigating crimes and managing intelligence! You really want these people handling that sort of information?! Brilliant idea that. My favourite bit is the bit about the private sector not being driven by money... they're motivated by the same things that motivate us apparently. So they won't care if profits fall and the shareholders get cranky? And as to the £1.5bn deal... investigating crimes, detaining suspects, developing cases, responding to incidents, supporting victims and witnesses, managing high-risk people, managing intelligence, managing engagement with the public... Gee, that sounds a lot like my job in a nutshell! I wonder if White & Case will be used to advise G4$ on their contract procurement. Hmm... The job is FUBAR, any of you wishing to join, don't. Anyone new enough in to bail, do it.
  15. Quite the error there! I can certainly imagine a lot of Camberely in uproar after reading such a tweet! Quite a funny story for me as it's quite a close town to where I abide. Definitely made me chuckle. The story can be found here: http://www.telegraph...lane-crash.html

Home Office website blocked; 'Anonymous' hackers blamed The hacking group Anonymous is alleged to have blocked the Home Office website, apparently in response to government plans for email surveillance. Shortly before the website became inaccessible a message was posted blaming a "high volume of traffic". A message on Twitter claiming to be from Anonymous said it was responsible, blaming "your draconian surveillance proposals". The Home Office said it was monitoring the situation very closely." Earlier in the week the Home Office said it planned to "legislate as soon as parliamentary time allows" to bring in email surveillance measures. Ministers say change is needed to help fight crime and terrorism, but critics warn it is an attack on privacy. Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg said on Tuesday the government would not "ram legislation through Parliament" to increase monitoring of emails and web usage, Nick Clegg has said. A Home Office spokesman said: "We are aware of some reports that the Home Office website may be the subject of an online protest. "We have put all potential measures in place and will be monitoring the situation very closely." "If a successful denial of service attempt does occur tonight, we will liaise with the technical team and update as necessary," he added. Earlier this week Anonymous claimed to have defaced almost 500 websites in China. A message put on the hacked sites said the attack was carried out to protest against the Chinese government's strict control of its citizens. Source: BBC News
