    *Issues in Disclosure*

    Probably looking for advice here from someone who has spent some time working in investigations or prepping case files My understanding is that all relevant unused material needs to be scheduled on MG6 series. Sure, the 'relevance test' says something along the lines of "...if it has some bearing on the offence being investigated..." but that seems very vague and broad. Does a custody record merely logging what time a detainee was roused and served food have 'relevance', for instance? Furthermore, is it all 'relevant' material which then actually needs to be sent to the prosec

    Corrupt prosecutor

    A court usher requests your assistance in ejecting a man from the court by force in order to deny him a fair hearing at a future date. He offers you a nice sum of money and explains that the case's evidence is extremely weak according to a Crown prosecutor. The charge is a very minor section 5 charge for yelling obscenities at a court bailiff who attended at his home address to collect a court fine. The usher explains that the defendant will be getting fined without being given a chance to enter a plea or stand trial despite having not entered a plea. He then says that the defendant will be ge
  6. Has anyone experienced being called to court for a job that they were involved with as special (or regular) but you no longer hold the Office of Constable? If so, how does it differ? Are you just treated as a civilian witness or are you still identified as a police officer - such as when saying rank/collar number/station at the start of giving evidence would you say this as it was at the time of the incident? I ask because, although I am still a Special Constable at the minute, I will start as a regular in April and I have been warned to attend court four days later!! So I will have resign

One woman passed out as dozens of terrified art lovers fled from the the Wolfson Gallery during the stunt.

    Police & Court Imposed Condition

    Hi, I'm a new PC and am looking for a little clarification. I'm wondering what the difference is between court imposed and Police imposed bail conditions and how & why we treat them differently. I understand that Police imposed are issued whilst on bail, awaiting further enquiries etc, and understand the sort of things they may be...however, I've heard other officers say things like 'they're Police imposed, we won't arrest for them' and similar...so, what's your views and reasoning behind this?

  10. A Serco custody officer has died after being viciously attacked by a prisoner outside Blackfriars crown court in London. Lorraine Barwell, 54, was seriously assaulted as she escorted a male prisoner from the court to a van at around 1.35pm on Monday 29 June. The attack was so severe that London air ambulance was called to treat Barwell at the scene. She was flown to an east London hospital in a critical condition. Scotland Yard announced on Friday that Barwell had died of her injuries. Humphrey Burke, 22, has been charged with her assault. He appeared at Camberwell Green magistrates court on W
  11. One for the legal beagles amongst us... A question I've wondered for a while is whether a court which felt someone had been inappropriately charged or their conduct fell short of the offence they had been charged with but met another, can convict them of that alternative offence for which they haven't been charged or not? A bit of research tells me that a jury can by virtue of S6(3) Criminal Law Act 1967, but how about a magistrates' court trying purely summary offences - can they decide that the defendant isn't guilty of using violence to secure entry but is guilty of being found on enclosed

    Court Dress

    Have to attend a court case in July. This will be my first attendance and I am the only officer called. What's the process when you get there and what is the dress code? Do I need tunic?

    Filming in a court

    Nothing massively interesting here, just thought that I'd share it having come across it on youtube. Would any officers have considered a different approach?
  16. Is it time we looked at this antiquated and most often utterly worthless piece of legislation??   There seems to be some sort of delusion by the courts that breach of bail is seen as something that matters in the slightest for anything short of murder.    We arrest, build a huge file and put the person before the courts and nothing changes. Then we do it again. We are doing it half a dozen times for the same person for the same case and nothing changes. How can the court think that its making any difference.    How about we do one of 2 things: 1, Make it an actu
  17. Something that cropped up recently which I've not managed to find a suitable answer for. Some of the family law act and housing act injunctions have conditional powers of arrest attached to them. My thoughts with these was that they are taken by us in front of the next available local demand court who then process them to the issuing county court however some people have suggested we take them straight to the county court or 'charge' and bail them to a mags court. Has anyone dealt with one of these and had some sort of definitive answer?
  18. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-30992608 Victims in England and Wales are still being let down by the justice system, according to an independent review. Baroness Newlove, the Victims' Commissioner, said many people who raised concerns about their treatment were left feeling ignored. Helen Newlove came to prominence after her husband was killed by a gang of youths outside their home in 2007. This is her first major review since being appointed as a commissioner in 2012. The report looked at the experiences of more than 200 victims who had complained about how they were dealt with by servi
  19. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-30945505 A senior judge has set out plans to "streamline" the "inefficient, time consuming and... very expensive" justice system in England and Wales. Among Lord Justice Leveson's ideas are more use of evidence from cameras worn by police, and flexible court hours. The BBC's Clive Coleman says parts of the report could "dramatically change the criminal justice system", affecting the right to opt for trial by jury. The government said it wanted to work with judges to improve the system. It has already announced a £160m scheme to replace courts' "outdated pap

He's pleaded guilty but is claiming special reasons why he shouldn't be given the relevant penalty points (he's subject to New Drivers Act 1995) - I've been called as a prosecution witness, does anyone know what sort of stuff I'll be asked? Thanks very much, F&V
