  1. There are some who were an LGV driver in a previous life and have since joined the police, and then onto road policing. Of those who were LGV drivers, and the apparent rapid change of wages for an LGV driver, thought I'd raise a post and see if any ex-LGV drivers have had thoughts of moving back or staying in the job?
  2. Next year I'm considering making a request for a standard driving course, which whilst not unprecedented, it is unusual for specials in my force. To do this I'm told I need to make a business case, which is what I'm preparing. Does anyone have experience of making such a business case before please, such that they can share the points that they believe were most persuasive? I'd also be interested to know approximately how much the 3 week standard (excluding initial pursuit) course costs if anyone knows. Suggestions on points consider when making the case also appreciated. FYI I'm a 'career special' with 6 years service based in a combined neighborhood and response team in a rural force with some fast roads on the patch. I'm already basic + compliant stop + carrier authorised. Thanks in advance.

    Police harassment

    I was discussing this on another police forum however it did not get many responses, so putting it here for discussion. My thoughts are the driver is clearly an annoying plonker, who is being cocky and trying to goad the officer into a stupid argument I feel the officer unfortunately does get goaded into arguing for longer than necessary. Thoughts?
  4. Hi all Looking for some C1 study material from anyone that has it lying around and is no longer required by them? Thanks

    Learner Driver

    You spot a vehicle with a fairly young male driver. After doing a quick check it's registered to a woman. You decide to stop it for whatever reason, as you approach you notice an L plate on the front but not back. The driver promptly gets his provisional out and whilst chatting you notice the passenger is asleep. The passenger then wakes up and produces all their documentation. The passenger is a relative. Both have correct licenses and insurance. Offences?

  7. Hi all, and I need advice please! I have known this person for approximately 4 years now, and it wasn't until 3 years ago that I discovered they were a habitual drink driver - and I don't mean once a week, I mean EVERY day! Myself and another person reported this person as a drink driver, gave both vehicle details to the local constabulary, along with timings, locations, watering holes etc. However, this person is STILL drink driving! Only a matter of a couple of weeks ago, this person walked past me in the town centre, on the way back to their car...The fumes were unbelievable, and the products used to attempt to mask the aroma of alcohol were pretty awful too! Somehow, this person is still driving around drunk, and has not been stopped or arrested. This person drives approximately 5 miles from their house into the town centre on pretty much a daily basis...and then drives back home again. Here is their day in detail (I can tell you this as I have witnessed first hand a 'typical' day...It IS accurate):- Wake up between 6am and 8am dependent on how much alcohol was consumed evening before. 8am - Breakfast which consists of a bottle of wine, and this will continue until... 10-10.30am - Gin & Tonics 10.30 - 11.40 - more wine 12 Noon - 1.45 - Pub lunch along with 3-4 (usually 4) pints of bitter/real ale 2.15pm - return home from Pub lunch and continue to drink wine. If required, this person will get back in their car and drive to wherever they need to go... This is a GENUINE day in the life of this person, and is more or less what they do every day. The only difference being is the time possibly leaving the house in the morning, and the time arriving back to the house in the afternoon! The rest IS accurate.. I cannot understand how this person is still able to behave in this way. Surely the danger to other road users/people/animals is extremely high? Added to this, I also know another major drink driver who has absolutely the same lack of concern or respect for others, and this other person was also reported to the local Police, along with all details needed... What else can I do? I am trying to be a responsible member of the public, but feel as if this has not been taken seriously enough. Do both of these drink drivers need to kill someone/horse/dog/deer/other pet, before this is stopped? Help please! Thank you
