    Making arrests

    Hey all, So I'm a student officer at the moment and we've been doing a few scenarios recently where some students play the role of a suspect etc and you have to chat, search arrest etc. My issue is I keep forgetting to caution, I keep forgetting the necessity, and I'm being too easy on them when they kick off and giving too many chances. Mostly were arresting for either drugs, drunken disorderly or criminal damage, I was wondering what everyone would use as a necessity for these other than prompt and effective investigation? Also if anyone had any tips on how they manag

    I need advise

    Hello Police family, I posted a while ago that I'm expecting a baby in August. But since then I've had grief and been sad a few times, not ashamed to admit. I need advise on what others would do in my situation, I feel like I'm doing everything I can to benefit my girlfriend and myself, and our child when it arrives. Here's why I need advise .. To cut a LONG story short, I believe my girlfriends mum is being a domineering control freak, and my girlfriend is listening to her absolute garbage ideas. Firstly, i found a house that we could move into

    citizens' academy - ten week course

  7. Hi Guys, On a recent shift I was crewed with another officer and we were sent to deliver an agony message. My crewmate had done this plenty of times before but I haven't done so yet. He regaled me with the stories of the previous death messages he had given and the variety of reactions they can trigger, from simply breaking down to throwing a television through a wall. In the end, we were diverted to a grade A and another unit ended up going. But it got me thinking. I'm aware that some officers (ie. FLOs) will probably receive some sort of training in this, but I haven't had that. Just wonderi

    Competency based interview tips

    Forgive me if this is already a topic somewhere in the forum I have been invited to my special's assessment centre for Hampshire on the 12th of May and am trying to do everything I can to prepare, I'm learning the competencies and making sure I understand them and know some key phrases to try and get into my answers, yet I still don't feel I'm doing enough. Has anyone got any tips to share on how you prepared? Or any advice on how its going to be on the day? Starting to feel a little bit nervous now, although thats still not stopping me from being as excited as I am! Any help wou

    Hep A Jab for Holiday?

    So Im going to Marrakech, Morocco next month, and Ive been researching about Hep A jab. NHS and the CDC recommends getting the Hep A and Typhoid Jab, but I've also read some other travellers not bothering. Any advice?
  10. Hey guys, I start my regular training on 13th April at Lancs and I'm just wondering if anyone has any general advice or tips on things I should be looking to do before it begins; helpful items I might want to look into getting, or just general ways to approach and do all the work. I've been told I need to attend in business wear, bring a locker deposit, some headphones (what will these be used for?), as well as some general documents. I'm currently working my way through the two workbooks that need to be completed for the first day. I'm guessing they'll go through most of this stuff in
  11. Can I go to another forces Federation if unhappy with my own!?
  12. I've just come back (early) from a shift where I was not happy with the behaviour or the regular officer I was crewed with on response. Basically, the officer I was with completely ignored me for the whole time. I attempted to give an input, but was net with one word answers. Clearly he did not think highly of specials. I have a fairly thick skin so I'm not too bothered about this. You can't get on with everyone. What worried me is the officer's lack of action throughout the shift. There were 3 Grade A's which came in where no other units were available, and each time we were available an
