    Business Interests

    Hi Everyone, I am new to this forum so apologies if I have messed up. I have a question about business interests as I am abit confused and worried at the moment. One of the interests that could specifically be a problem to me is to do with holding or being related to someone holding a liqueur licence. I do not have much knowledge around this and to what extent it is enforced. Now, I am currently in the process of applying to become a Special but my parents own a newsagents shop with an 'off-licence', we live in a flat above the shop. The shop however is not in the force area to which I am applying to and I am not named at all on the licence although I do work there occasionally but just to help out with the family business. I stated on my initial application that my parents own a shop with the off-licence under the business interests section, and I managed to pass the shortlisting. So my question is, do you think this is likely to be a problem? I hope I have been clear enough and thanks in anticipation , Baz

    BangkokPost- Koh Tao Protests

    It hasn't been widely reported in the British media about the simmering discontent about the conviction of the the two Myanmarians of the murder of the two UK backpackers. It's widely perceived in some circles that they were stitched up to cover up a murder committed by a local politician's son. Whether or not is true, I am sure that nobody will ever find out. However, it is unfortunate the DNA evidence linking them to the crime was conveniently unavailable for production to the Defence when they wanted it re-tested.

  4. It's a gorgeous community of wide open spaces and small town charm, but not everything in Chelsea is as sweet as iced tea. "We live in a good ol' boy system here in this town," said assistant police chief Travis Hogan, playing a dashcam video of a DUI arrest from two months ago that has taken on a life of it's own. "My officers have received threats. I personally and the chief has received threats to our jobs," he said. It began with a white Jeep being pulled over by Officer Nicholas Pappe. "Evening sir," said Pappe. Soon to be under arrest, Mr. Brian Haggard, described as a well connected local businessman, none too pleased about the traffic stop. "It's very common for someone to say 'Please man don't do this to me,'" said Hogan. What isn't very common is what happened next. A flurry of phone calls from influential people. "I was shocked when I received the phone call from the police commissioner. I thought he knew better than that. But for him to call me and ask me if I would allow him to leave his home to the traffic stop and pick that individual up and take him home in lieu of even a citation much less an arrest, I find that highly unethical," said Hogan. And it didn't end there. The gentleman arriving at the scene there, that, says the assistant chief, is the city manager. Did you talk to the chief? "He says did you talk to the chief?" said Hogan. "It's not that he showed up and tried to prevent my officer from doing anything, but it was just his mere presence. I mean that is so rare for a city manager. This, I believe in my four and a half years this is the one and only time the city manager has come to a traffic stop," said Hogan. "If you would give me a free pass tonight, I would sure appreciate it," said Haggard to Officer Pappe. Undeterred, the officer continues with the arrest, which has since created, two months of unrest for the police department. "What we've been dealing with now we call it the fallout on Facebook," said Hogan. So much fallout, the assistant chief wrote a full page letter to the editor in the local paper. "We're human beings doing a job. Show some respect people," said Hogan. And on top of all that says Hogan, is the continued fury of Mr. Haggard. "He has made it a point to tell anybody that will listen in this town that 'I will have the job of the chief, the assistant chief, and Nick Pappe,'" said Hogan. Mr. Haggard declined an on camera interview but denied ever making any kind of threats and said that the "cops are ruining the reputation of the city." Chelsea, Oklahoma. Don't let the peace and quiet of the scenery fool you. "It's kind of put a wedge in the town," said Hogan. The police commissioner at the time of the incident declined an interview and efforts to contact the city manager were unsuccessful. http://www.ktul.com/story/28987833/dui-arrest-sparks-controversy Good on the cop I say!
  5. Solicitor cleared of harassing disgraced police officer slams prosecution08:48, 11 May 2015By James WatkinsPaul Garland said his case involved an 'important principle of free speech' after being found not guilty of harassing disgraced former chief inspector, Tanya Brookes16 SharesShareTweet+1LinkedIn Surrey PolicePaul Garland was cleared of harassing Tanya Brookes (above)A retired solicitor who was found not guilty of harassing a former Surrey Police chief inspector has called the prosecution a waste of time and money. Paul Garland, along with Harry Salaman, both of Wisley Lane, Wisley, were found not guilty of one count of harassment by magistrates in Brighton at the end of last month. The pair were accused of the crime after distributing leaflets highlighting that Tanya Brookes was to face trial accused of fraud, of which she was found guilty, and later admitted further charges. Speaking to the Surrey Advertiser following the verdict Mr Garland, 63, said he was relieved the magistrates had completely vindicated the actions they had taken. Mr Salaman is trying to reopen a previous case where he was convicted of confronting a woman driver with whom he clipped wing mirrors. Mrs Brookes was a witness during that trial. Mr Garland said: “The decision supported all the points we had made that they decided that all the information was in the public domain, that in response of each of the three deliveries, none of it caused harassment, and that the sole purpose of doing that was not to harass Mrs Brookes, but to get Mr Salaman’s case reopened. “That is what we had been telling the police all the time, and we are very pleased and grateful to the magistrates for coming to that decision. “The case involved an important principle of free speech and the right to know.” Mr Garland, who was arrested when staying in Middlesbrough, claimed the police must have spent thousands of pounds on the investigation into him and Mr Salaman. “They travelled up to Middlesbrough and spent two days up there to arrest me and seize my documents,” he said. “It was all wholly unnecessary. We were both arrested in dawn raids at our homes. Our property and private papers were gone through. My computer was seized and my hard drive for four months before I got it back. “No evidence was found of any use to the prosecution.” He said that the information they delivered on Mrs Brookes ‘was totally innocuous’, ‘readily available,’ and ‘fully in the public domain’. Mr Garland claimed that police simply could have given him and Mr Salaman a warning notice to discontinue distributing the leaflets. The pair wanted to thank their representation during the trial for the cross-examination of Mrs Brookes, by Teresa Mulroney and Kirsty Craghill. A spokesman for the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) said: “In line with all the cases we prosecute, we first carefully considered whether there was enough evidence against the defendant and whether it was in the public interest for the CPS to bring the case to court. “This case was subject to continuing review throughout its life and the defendants were found not guilty, following a full trial. “We believe that this case was properly brought and it was right to present this case to magistrates.” A spokesman for Surrey Police said: “The matter involving Paul Garland and Haroun Salaman was first brought to the attention of Surrey Police in May 2014. “A thorough investigation was carried out and both were subsequently arrested on suspicion of harassment. As part of the investigation, a search of their addresses was carried out and property was seized. “Addresses of those subject to an investigation are routinely searched under the Police and Criminal Evidence Act. This is standard practice to aid officers gathering evidence for an investigation.” The police would not comment on how much the investigation cost. http://www.getsurrey.co.uk/news/surrey-news/solicitor-cleared-harassing-disgraced-police-9229477
  6.   source A bit too much of this going around due to postal voting. I know he has only been arrested and that doesn't mean guilty but there have certainly, been other cases that have been successfully prosecuted in the area.

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
