About this blog

I am a serving S/Sgt with a Home Office force in England & Wales with approx 3 years experience under my belt. I know when I was applying/in training I spent quite a lot of time reading the various 'what i did on duty' threads on PS.com so thought I'd give something back and contribute myself. I will try and write up as many interesting shifts as possible, giving you an insight into being a Special in general and also some specific to being a supervisor. Bear in mind I'm no author so take them as they come! To protect my own anonymity and out of respect for those involved I will of course not be posting any dates, specific places, names or details of any ongoing investigations. As such, if you recognise any of the incidents I post, please consider these points before you divulge or add to what I have posted. As a disclaimer, times are always an estimate as posts may be from duties that took place a significant amount of time ago. All incidents are written from best memory and, as such, specifics may differ from any original & official accounts.

I am also currently in the recruitment process for a Staff job with BTP. While I highly doubt I will be able to post anything from this job due to operational info, I may make one or two posts if I can.

Hope you enjoy

I have been on both sides of the table for SC interviews, I remember mine well & remember the feeling of being sat in the waiting room, flinching every time the door opened
