  1. I have noticed that the MET are using Community Resolution as a disposal a lot for adult offenders for drugs offences, yet not many other forces are doing this. This is separate from the choice to issue a cannabis warning or issued a PND. How does this work? How do offenders make amends for a crime in which there isn't an identifiable victim other than Regina? Is this just a way to write such matters off?

    0800. Meet up in local station with Sgt, the area drug DC, a uniformed PC, dog handler and three other specials. Get a briefing on the two search warrants we will be executing - there were supposed to be three but one has been postponed. 0900. Door answered and in we go. Mum and toddler are fine, laddo is spark out on the sofa. We wake him up. He is not really with it. The drug dog goes through without any particular indication so we begin searching. I find a wrap of cannabis between the DVD cases, which the mum claims. She is taken down to the station to receive a cannabis warning.
  3. Morning all, After a little bit of clarification as the below has caused a couple of issues in custody. I'm drug wipe trained. Recently I arrested someone for driving whilst unfit through drugs (did a roadside breath test and it was zero, so didn't bother with drink as well). He also failed the roadside drug wipe (cocaine). Got to custody, start the MGDD forms. Get consent from the driver, inform the custody sgt who says he'll have to call the doctor as we are going for section 4 (unfit). I was under the impression that because we have the positive drug wipe, that shows that t

  6. Drugs factories – Bath PC Adge Secker on why it’s not ‘only a bit of cannabis cultivation’ By SamPetherick | Posted: January 22, 2016 By Twerton beat manager PC Adge Secker Bath police found and dismantled a £180,000 cannabis farm with 300 plants in Twerton High Street "It's only a bit of cannabis-growing. Go and catch a real villain." http://www.bathchronicle.co.uk/Drugs-factories-8211-Bath-PC-Adge-Secker-8217-s/story-28586313-detail/story.html
  7. A (non-police) work colleague has just asked me for advice on a real life problem that one of his friend's (let's call him Adam) is experiencing. He approached me because he knows that I am a special. I'd welcome any advice to pass on. I apologise for the length of this post, and also if I've chosen the wrong forum area. I thought it was close enough to police work to be a Scenario rather than a Help Me! topic. Adam lives with his son, who is in his mid twenties. His son is a regular drug user (both cannabis and stronger drugs, to which he is addicted), has a history of aggressive beha

    What causes addiction?

    I'm no fan of drug legalisation but perhaps, just perhaps, I'm wrong and my views are counter productive. I try and make decisions that are based on the best available evidence so perhaps I need to reevaluate my beliefs.
  10. Rank: Special Sgt Length of Service: 3yrs Planned Hours: 1400-2300 (Late Turn) Type of Shift: Response 1230: Arrive at the station early as have a fair amount of admin to do for my team and upcoming meetings/training days etc. Manage to locate the infamous station fork and have a bit of lunch as of course, no guarantee I'll be eating later. After all that, go and kit up & as there's a few other SCs on the same shift, go to the skippers office to let the late turn Sgt know we're out today & give all our details etc. Massive thanks from the Sgt as his team was short so he'll make
  11. Ian Bevis-Mott is a PCSO working in Bedford who has been in his role for just over eight years. On today’s International Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking (26 June), he gives an insight into what it’s like to close down a drug den in Bedfordshire. My daily duties are varied from supporting and reassuring victims of crime to investigating and dealing with anti-social behaviour, along with intelligence gathering. In 2014 new legislation was introduced which gives the police wider powers to help tackle anti-social behaviour. With the support of my team, I have been able to put these

  13. Benefits Street's Black Dee and five others 'sold drugs' Four residents of TV's Benefits Street ran a drugs operation, a jury in Birmingham has been told. Tina Thomas, 47, Charlene Wilson, 31, Samora Roberts, 33, who was known as Black Dee in the Channel 4 show, and Ian Wright, 39, were charged after raids in Birmingham in June 2013. The four, from James Turner Street, Winson Green, deny charges of conspiracy to supply drugs. Two other men also deny charges relating to the supply of drugs.

  16. Philip Eckersley stole cannabis and ecstasy-like pills from police stores but came unstuck in anti-corruption raid A former police worker has been jailed after conspiring to sell drugs he had stolen from where he worked. Philip Eckersley stole £5,800 worth of cannabis and £3,900 of ecstasy-like pills from stores at Elizabeth Slinger Road and Longsight police stations in Manchester. The 28-year-old exhibits store officer, of Bag Lane in Atherton, was jailed for four years and three months after admitting conspiracy to supply class B and C drugs at Liverpool Crown Court. Four
  17. Possession of ecstasy and other drugs is currently legal in Ireland, but only for a day, after a court ruling on Tuesday morning. A written judgment released by the Republic’s court of appeal said part of the Misuse of Drugs Act 1977, which allows certain substances to be controlled, is unconstitutional, meaning all government orders banning substances such as ecstasy and magic mushrooms are void – and it is not an offence to possess them. Specifically, the court found that the act was being added to via ministerial order and without consulting the Oireachtas (both houses of the Irish
  18. source I never get how "addressing your problems" once in custody is mitigation, if you hadn't been arrested would you have done anything about it? Could you not have started in the first place? I'm not so sure about the mother's final comments though, and you son does have to bare some responsibility for taking them in the first place.
  19. Greetings all, I was on duty the other day when an MoP called me over to a young lad who was off his face on drugs at the front of the station, I got there to find the young man slouched on the floor with vomit all down his jumper and his mates stood over him laughing and joking. Turns out the lad had been smoking something called 'Spice' which is a legal high available from a shop in the town centre. The effects of this drug though was something else, the lad could hardly speak, he couldn't stand and we had to call an ambulance for him who took him up to A&E - I've seen drunks in be
  20. A British grandmother convicted of smuggling drugs to Bali in Indonesia fears she may face the firing squad within weeks. Lindsay Sandiford, 58, believes her execution is now imminent after she was asked to sign a court document tomorrow that formally confirms her death sentence. Yorkshire-born Sandiford, who was convicted of smuggling cocaine in 2013, fears it could effectively fast-track her execution after Indonesia’s new president Joko Widodo pledged to show no mercy to foreigners convicted of drug crimes. Scroll down for video Lindsay Sandiford, 58, (pictured behind b

  22. Sky News – Three people have died and one person is in hospital as police warn of a "dangerous batch of drugs" - believed to be ecstasy.   A man in his 20s died this morning after being found seriously unwell in Rendlesham, Suffolk.   He received treatment at the property on Chestnut Close but could not be saved.   Two and a half hours later, at 9.40am, ambulance crews treated two more men at Provan Court, Ipswich - one died at the scene, the other was taken to hospital in a serious condition.   The second dead man is also thought to be in his 20s. &nb
