  1. Hi there, My sister is a serving police officer with West Midlands and has been since 2002. I'm desperately trying to find out which radios were in use then as I'd like to try and source one (somehow) for her birthday. If anyone knows or can remember what type it was would be a massive help! Many thanks Tara

    Hello all I keep running into more and more neumonics and never can remember what they all mean. I'm hoping you guys can help me with what they mean. ACECARD DAFFLE offences Searching for things to DIE(?) for If you have any you've heard of that could be useful please add and explain them!
  3. Hello, first-time post... I am a serving member of the met (PCSO) which I joined with a view to becoming a PC. Passed all of my assessments; now I have received an email saying I failed my vetting. I know why it is (although third party info can't be given by vetting)... My dad got arrested in the year between my PCSO vet and now. I was so disgusted I moved house ASAP, but there has not been a resolution to the case yet (no bail, no charge, no conviction or NFA) I severed contact with my father from this time; only seeing him at Christmas (and that was to read some of his documents for my appeal) What I would like to know is (and I appreciate these are opinions and shan't be taken as gospel) how you think my appeal will do... I have followed ACPO & ACPOS national vetting procedures for the policing community as well as met-specific SOP and quoted both to show that I took every step practicable to distance myself. I am already in a public facing role and have access to sensitive data already and my integrity has never been called into question (I have attached character reference from two sergeants) My appeal is based on a 'perverse decision' as per form 7288 - Appeal form. ACPOS SOP 17 - Third Party Risk Assessment points such as lack of knowledge of activity have been discussed (I didn't have a clue) but my fear is that they will refuse me because a family member is currently under investigation. I have never had dealings with police (apart from my job of course) and neither has anyone else I know. I have heard that the Met are really good when it comes to balanced decisions and I pray that they see that my current service is exemplary and I have done nothing wrong.. Of course they may just refuse as there is an ongoing investigation into a family member. I loathe being in this position that is not my doing. Any similar stories/success stories to keep my spirits up? Any posts at all would be good! Thanks in advance

    PAYE Number

    Hi all. I'm still waiting on access to the BTP members area so I'll have to post here. Could anyone give me the PAYE number for BTP so I can complete a tax relief form? Thanks in advance. Tom
  5. Hi all, If it's alright with the mods, I'd like to leave a link to my blog post here as it'll probably be more easily found by those who it'll be helpful to. I am an interviewer for SC assessment days in my force and have written a substantial blog post about a few common issues and some do's & dont's which lead to people failing their interviews. Anyone who is applying or thinking about it, please feel free to have a read, you may find it helpful. Please also read the top introductory section of the blog, I am an interviewer for SCs in one force and as such what I say may more, less or even not at all helpful as things differ around the country. Anyway, hopefully some of you will make use of it. Any general questions about interviews feel free to leave a comment on the blog or PM me. Thanks HPE
  6. Nice to see a paper reporting the police in a good light for a change http://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/news/scottish-news/bride-groom-arrive-wedding-police-6151315
  7. This popped up on my Facebook page earlier, so I shall leave it here.
  8. Okay, I'll keep it brief. New strange bit of witchcraft in the house, apparently it does some kinda magic after pressing a few buttons... Though it is better than the old one as you don't need a degree in engineering and be proficient at flying an aircraft to get it to work and be on the right setting! only thing is... even at a low RPM it really does not like me and I have to make sure it doesn't make a bit for freedom... Floor is level as floors generally are and the little spinny legs on the front are even. Even at 600RPM it likes to play a game and try to run away or likes to knock seven shades out of the adjacent kitchen unit.... any ideas???

    High Blood Pressure

    Morning all So, I've been getting nosebleeds now, on average, once a week. These last between 2-4 minutes and they are thick, heavy bleeds. The last time I had these was when I was in the army at 17 and that was due to high blood pressure. Friday, I had a nosebleed at around 1800hrs. Then I was out on duty from 2000 x 0400 and the paramedic who I work with took my blood pressure. It was alarmingly high at 167/102 (I'm told for someone my age it should be at 120/80) So I was told to go see my GP asap.. Saturday morning in the bath- nosebleed. Starts gushing out. Ruins my bath. Great. So I gave 111 a call and they advised me to go to A&E within the hour - I told them I didn't and it was a bit of a fuss. Anyway.. About 10 minutes before my mother was taking me to A&E and probably 30-40 minutes after the phone call, another nosebleed. This time it was only a very small, light one. Seen by the doctor in the hospital and I was in and out within an hour. He reckons is secondary hypertension, so I said secondary to what? Doctor doesn't know so said to make an appointment with my GP to arrange blood tests and all other things to see what's going on, exactly. Saturday evening - around 1750hrs, stood in the queue for some food. Got to the front of the queue, nosebleed. Wasn't happy! Has anyone had any experiences like this? I have my medical for a police force in about 2 months time - will high BP affect me passing? Any advice. Someone. Please. Cheers

    Emergency Button Use - Examples please

    Hi all. I'm curious about how and when the police Emergency Assistance buttons are used. What kind of situations may call for it? And I'm assuming that in terms of response teams / patrols, they are normally done in pairs, so I'm guessing use of the button would mean something pretty hairy right?

    SkyHD TVLink

    Can't seem to get my TVLink devices to work.   I had standard Sky+ up to a few days agao.  This old grey box had the RF in and outs on the back.  This fed into a powered splitter that then fed two other TV's, one in the bedroom and one in the office.  The bedroom TV we shall call TV2 and the office TV3, TV1 is the downstairs TV directly connected to the box.  Both TV2 and TV3 had a TVLink device manufactured by Global Communications attached.  Everthing worked fine.   Now received a SKY+HD box.  This is the newest type with integrated WiFi.  There is no RF In and Out on the rear but it does have a I/O port.   I have connected a Triax RF I/O device ( http://cpc.farnell.com/triax/370419/io-link-triax/dp/AP02859?crosssellid=AP02859&crosssell=true&in_merch=true& ) with dual RF out.  I have also enabled the RF2 output in the settings on the box.  I have retuned the TV's 2 and 3.   I can receive pictures and Sound on TV2 and TV3 but I am having trouble changing the channels with the TVLinks.  When I first connected it TV2 TVLink worked, then I connected TV3 but the TVLink wouldn't work.  I unplugged the TVLink for TV2 and then TV3 worked.  Wow.  I assumed it was a lack of power in the Triax RF I/O so I connected the power supply to it (bear in mind both these TV's go through a splitter that is powered from the mains).  I then unplugged TV3 TVLink and tried TV2 TVLink again but it didn't work.  Now I can't get the TVLink on TV2 to work at all no matter what configuration I use.   Anyone any ideas?  I have read up on decoupled patch cables and shielding as well as moving it away from the main device and have yet to try these things but I'm wondering if anyone has any experience and what you did.   I hope all of the above makes sense.  It's massively frustrating.   P.S. Sky refuse to help as they don't want you attaching two TV's to the box as they want you to pay for multiroom, they don't even like you attaching a second if they are honest but they have begrudgingly added the RF I/O socket for this.   Thanks in advance.
