    • Liverpool's first black MP has accused police officers of racially profiling her and her family on a night out.

    • With the Diana statue being unveiled recently there was some talk about the crash and how paparazzi at the scene got into trouble for "failing to assist" which is a crime in France. I'm sure every right minded person would agree that in a situation like that there is a moral duty to assist if you are capable and it's safe to do so but is that backed up by legislation in the UK?

      I know there's a rarely used offence of failing to assist a constable, but what about failing to assist a random member of the public?

    • Has there been a time when you've seen a criminal put so much effort and dedication into pulling off a crime that you've been genuinely impressed, and think that if they put all that effort into a legitimate job they would be extremely successful.

    • I have noticed that so far this year I have faced more serious and unpleasant jobs, suicides, fatals, child deaths and some heavy work incidents than in recent years and I'm getting close to my limit as are many others. 

      Work have a post incident debrief and an EAP which I am led to believe is supportive, if you go for it.

      However knowing police officers general attitude of stoically getting through and being generally unlikely to actually engage with many services I am trying to identify something that could be automatically done to support officers. 

      We are trialing a trauma monitoring system which records which officers have been exposed to the bad stuff. The question, as yet not answered, is what happens when you reach X amount of trauma. 

      I am looking to fill the gap between nothing and the full voluntary EAP. Something that management might accept, but more importantly something that will actually help officers. 

      I'm thinking something like a few hours off for gratis, a training day with no training (99% of our training days) simply being a day off. 

      Training days including exercise opportunity, voluntary or sponsored. 

      Maybe an opportunity to swap departments for a set. 

      I'm curious if anyone would have anything they think would be helpful.
