  1. More than 250 officers and support staff will be cycling for 180-miles. A previous ride Officers from across the country are preparing for a charity cycle ride in memory of police officers who have died in the line of duty. Metropolitan Police Commissioner Cressida Dick will give a contingent a send-off as they embark on the Police Unity Tour on Friday. Many will start the journey to the Police Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire by laying flowers in memory of fallen hero PC Keith Palmer in Westminster. The ride will then carry on to the National Police Memorial on the Mall where floral tributes will be laid. Riders will be joined by the families of the fallen officers, law enforcement officials from the USA as well as crew members. Cyclists will ride approximately 180 miles over three days to the National Arboretum, for a special ceremony on Sunday. Comm Dick said: "This is an important event in the police calendar and I am honoured to be involved. This year will be particularly poignant as we remember PC Keith Palmer who was killed in the Westminster Bridge terrorist attack. “Remembering all of those who have lost their lives in the line of duty reminds us of the dangers police officers face when doing their jobs and ensures those who have paid the ultimate price are not forgotten.” Riders all cycle for an individual officer depicted on an engraved bracelet, which at the conclusion of the ride they will have the opportunity to present to that officer’s family. The Police Unity Tour raises money for the charity UK Care of Police Survivors (UKCOPS), which directly supports the families and loved ones of officers killed in the line of duty. Watch the video below to see footage and interviews from the end of the 2015 edition of the tour. View on Police Oracle
  2. The 11-year-old police-mad boy managed to raise £150,000 for Brain Tumour Research before he died. The force surprised the family of Finlay Church at his old school with the pooch A new West Midlands Police dog has been named in memory of a boy who dreamed of becoming a police officer. German Shepherd Finn is named after 11-year-old Finlay Church who managed to raise over £150,000 for Brain Tumour Research and Birmingham Children’s Hospital before he died from brain cancer in November 2015. The boy, who had a passion for policing, organised a series of fundraisers after his diagnosis including achieving a world record for the longest line of teddies. After making an “unforgettable” impression on staff when he achieved a long held ambition to spend a couple of days with the force, they decided to name one of their latest crime fighting hounds in his honour. Police staff surprised Finlay’s family by arriving at his old Alvechurch Middle School with the 12-week-old pup last Friday while they were organising a fundraising Wear A Hat Day in aid of brain tumour research. Finlay’s mum Penny said: "This is the most wonderful gesture to have a police dog named in honour of Fin. "West Midlands Police has always been incredibly supportive of us and our fundraising work and to keep Fin’s legacy alive in this way is very humbling. “He loved dogs and desperately wanted to be an armed response officer so this really is a fitting tribute. “We can’t thank the Dogs Unit enough for enabling police dog Finn to live out Fin’s aspirations." Family, friends and the force have carried on raising money for Brain Tumour Research and last year West Midlands Police hats helped to set an unusual record relating to headwear placed in a row as part of their efforts. Sergeant Phil McMullen, who took part in some of the charity events, said: "Finlay was an aspiring police officer and we were all deeply saddened when he passed away. "He wanted to help others which is one of the greatest qualities a PC can have "We had discussed the idea of naming a police dog after Finlay and this seemed a nice time to surprise his family. "Finn the dog struck up an instant bond with them and we hope he will soon be out on the beat to help the public - just like his namesake." Read on Police Oracle
  3. On 16th March 2017, committed police supporters @PoliceCommander and @DC_ARVSgt will host an evening with acclaimed author and former prisoner of war John Nichol at New Scotland Yard raising funds for the Police Dependants’ Trust. With an evening of great company at the new home of the Metropolitan Police, guests will hear the astonishing personal story of best-selling author and captured airman John Nichol. Tickets at £10 are only available to Police personnel, and can be bought online here. Proceeds from the event will be donated to the Police Dependants’ Trust, and we are grateful for the kind support from Police Oracle who have sponsored the event, and to the Metropolitan Police for providing the venue. Describing himself as an ‘ordinary guy who just happened to find himself in extraordinary circumstances, John Nichol was shot down during the first Gulf War in 1991. The first the world saw of RAF navigator Flight Lieutenant John Nichol was as a tortured British prisoner-of-war, beaten and humiliated by his captors. The ensuing pictures were flashed around the world and became an enduring symbol of the 1991 Gulf war and would change John’s life forever. Tickets are strictly limited and include drinks and light refreshments courtesy of Police Oracle. All proceeds will be donated to the Police Dependants’ Trust. – THIS EVENT IS OPEN TO POLICE PERSONNEL ONLY – Date: 16th March 2017 Time: 6pm – 8pm Location: New Scotland Yard, Victoria Embankment, London, SW1A 2JL Tickets are £10 and can be booked at www.pdtrust.org/tickets
  4. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3397318/Woman-raised-money-homeless-couple-stay-hotel-Christmas-trash-room-cause-1-000-worth-damage.html#ixzz3xGE4Ko5b At face value, this seems like the ultimate act of betrayal of an act of charity. However, I am starting to get tick and tired of these social media inspired, inappropriate acts of 'generosity'. Yes, the homeless couple allegedly trashed the room. But it sounds like they were set up to fail. Many homeless people have problems, such as drink, drugs or mental health issues. They have complex backgrounds, whereby being given a hotel room for Christmas may be entirely inappropriate. In fact, being the subject to the scrutiny of social media campaign without ever asking to be so is tantamount to using vulnerable people to polish one's own super ego. And after the room was allegedly damaged, those that set this couple up to fail then went crying to the Daily Fail, whereby they named them and then encouraged the hotel to call the police. The money that they raised could have been put to better use by a homeless charity.

    I've done a terrible thing and signed up to shave off all of my lovely hair! Whilst it's not long enough itself to donate, I'm going to be matching any donations up until I've reached £400 (£200 of public, £200 of my own money). Would anyone be willing to put in a little bit? To give myself some sort of anonymity I've shortened the link as the normal one does have my full name. http://bit.ly/1LCnX7K
  6. After firearms officer PC Darren Clawson’s son Hadley spent six months fighting for his life at Great Ormond Street Hospital he vowed to do everything he could to support the charity. Since then the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Armed Policing Unit officer has carried out a range of gruelling endurance races and has raised a staggering £250,000 for the hospital. Now the 39-year-old is hoping to double that total by attempting his hardest challenge so far – rowing 2,400 miles from California to Hawaii in a bid to set a new world record. He will be joined by Hertfordshire PC Arron Worbey and two friends, Matt Knight, from Nottingham, and Raf Shildermans, from Belgium, as they man the two-berth vessel. They will take turns in carrying out two-hour shifts, with their rest periods comprising eating, sleeping, changing clothes, washing and using the toilet - meaning the longest stretch of sleep any of the four can look forward during the six-week challenge will be about an hour-and-a-half before getting back into the rowing. Father-of-three Darren said: “When Had was about two he suddenly started having seizures. He went downhill very, very quickly and at one point was having 100 a day. He was transferred to Great Ormond Street Hospital and was there for six months. They did brilliantly and managed to save him. “He is now disabled but the team at GOSH was fantastic. The work they do is so important. I can’t believe they have to actually ask for money and rely on people raising cash. "I have done endurance racing and ultra-running and what is described as the hardest footrace in the world the Jungle Marathon in Brazil which is 285k and you are completely self-sufficient. “But this will be another level. We will be doing two-hour shifts and it will be non-stop, seven days a week." Darren and his team are already training hard and will have to undergo rigorous health checks when they get to the US before being allowed to embark on their voyage. They will also complete open water rowing, health testing and completing navigation and radio courses. The team are training five days a week, with sessions ranging from 60 minutes to four hours. Darren said: "No matter how much training you do it will come down to determination and mental steel. We have all done endurance events but it’s dealing with the pressure. Another issue will be sea sickness. If you get it you will just have to put up with it for a couple of days and hope it goes away. "The hardest part will be being away from my wife and children for so long. But just knowing what we are raising money for and the great work that GOSH do for so many children just like Had will keep me going." Fellow officers and staff from across Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire will be able to donate their rest days and annual leave so he has time to train and complete the challenge.

About us

Police Community was originally founded in 2014 by two serving Police Officers.

In 2016 it was incorporated as a limited company called RAW Digital Media Limited and then purchased 3 other forums; Police Specials, UK Police Online and Police UK to form the largest policing discussion forum network in the UK. In 2019 the decision was taken to merge all four forums into this main form of www.police.community
