Warrants op

0800.  Meet up in local station with Sgt, the area drug DC,  a uniformed PC, dog handler and three other specials.  Get a briefing on the two search warrants we will be executing - there were supposed to be three but one has been postponed. 0900.  Door answered and in we go.  Mum and toddler are fine, laddo is spark out on the sofa.  We wake him up.  He is not really with it.  The drug dog goes through without any particular indication so we begin searching.  I find a wrap of cannabis between t

Saturday nights

Rank: SC Service 8 Months Duty: 1900-0400 ; Response All timings appropriate. 1830.  Arrive and grab my gear.  The duty inspectors are handing over and are very pleased to see me as they are strapped.  I start self briefing. 1840.  The sarge asks me to go from Big Town BT (where I am) to Small Town ST about ten miles away as there is exactly one officer there for the next couple of hours, then only two more.  I don't mind so I grab 'duty clapped out fiesta' (every nick has one!!) and head o

Shortest Tour of Duty

To duty, or not to duty

So, in the spirit of the 'what I did on duty' blogs, I thought I'd fill you in on perhaps my shortest duty ever which occurred only yesterday. I've no doubt that some of you will feel that I acted unnecessarily but I'm satisfied with my actions. All times are approximate as I really wasn't expecting to keep track of time: 15:45 - I've been out for a walk with the dog. We went for a wade in the river and I'm a passenger in the car on the way home. I've just finished looping up her long lead and

Change

So I'm finishing my probation. Rookie/Sprog/Probie/Student Officer, whatever you call it - I am no longer. I first joined the police family 7 years ago (I hate that term but it's the easiest way to deflect criticisms of 'You haven't got 7 years in'). I was 18 and far from an angel. I had some brushes with the police but never for anything serious and I obviously had no criminal record. It was 2008 and I was wrangling with my decision 2 years prior to discharge from the army during basic train

Day 1

Rank: Special Shift: Response The previous week I collected most my operation uniform, minus my CS and radio from the central store at the forces HQ. I had taken it home opened it all and possibly tried it all on my bedroom. I looked like a police officer but I didn’t feel like one! Finally after what seemed like the longest week ever I was driving to the station for the first time, I drove through the metal gates and parked. I got all the gear id been given and attempted to carry it a

Mid Month Saturday Night (with added rain)

A quick Government Health Warning to you Regulars out there.  Us Specials compare notes in detail about you.  We talk about who we like to work with, who is good in a scrap, who makes the best brews/cakes and which pairings always manage to be deployed in far flung villages while the pubs and clubs are kicking out.  One of the things we also rate is the quality of your Response driving – it’s very subjective seeing as we only have A to B grading but even so it varies between “Have we actually go

Pay Day Saturday Night in Town!

So, here we go with another Saturday night shift. Timings reasonably accurate - taken from PNB 1930 - On duty, with the legendary Joe, and two ladies whom we will call L1 and L2 to save their blushes (Joe is beyond saving!) 1945 - Immediate call so jump in with L1 and head to a carpark where a group of pre-teens have come across an older chap who has taken a tumble and has a cut above the eye.  They have called 999 and given rudimentary first aid.  He is a little drunk and takes some persuadin
