    Victorinox Rescue Tool

    Hello, can I keep the Victorinox Rescue Tool in pouch in my car's door container? It has a locking blade. The reason for keeping it would be as an emergency use only as it has seatbelt cutter, window braker and disc saw. If it is not legal to keep it with above reasoning, would it be ok to keep it in my car's boot? But then what is the point of having it in my car's boot while trapped with blocked seatbelt on? The same goes with multi-tools, can I have a multi-tool with a locking blade in my car's boot? I'm thinking about Victorinox Swisstool X. The reason for having it would be multipurpose as the name suggests multi-tool. Are police officers fussy when it comes to having such tools in your car? I'm not thinking about taking it from my car and carrying around town, shops etc. Would I be in trouble when stopped by a police officer and having it? James
  2. A man armed with a crossbow and knife has been tasered by police in Manchester city centre. http://www.msn.com/en-gb/news/uknews/man-with-knife-and-crossbow-tasered-by-police/ar-AAoVLzD?li=AA59G2&ocid=spartanntp Slightly intrigued as to what a Baton Launcher is.. Unless they mean a baton round was fired.
  3. Professionally done if you ask me. Did they have lethal cover? I couldn't see how many were aiming guns and how many were aiming tasers.

  6. A male pupil has died after a stabbing at an Aberdeen school. Police Scotland said another male had been detained after the emergency services were called to Cults Academy at about 13:30. Aberdeen City Council earlier said it was aware of what it described as a serious incident. A spokesman added: "Due to the nature of this incident we will not be issuing further comment." Affluent suburb Police Scotland said: "One male pupil has been taken by ambulance to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary with serious injuries. "A further male has been detained and is currently assisting officers with their enquiries. "Inquiries into the circumstances of the incident are ongoing and officers will remain at the scene for the time being. Next of kin are aware. "No other details are available at this time."

    Coached Patrol

    Shift: Saturday Coached Patrol Rank: Special Constable Length of Service: 3 years Planned duty: 1400-0200 Unfortunately I haven't bothered trying to estimate timings as it was such a busy shift we were here there and everywhere! Having recently got my driving ticket I like running coached patrol shifts for newer officers to help them achieve evidence for their PACs and SOROC (read SOLAP for anyone who isn't Met). I arrived before the start of the shift to get ready and book on and saw the two student officers who would be coming out with me and my oppo. We would be out in a Q car to help with getting some traffic process for the new guys. As they also needed an arrest each I also picked up a few arrest enquiries and a couple of taskings to help the Borough out. Once we were all ready to go, I checked in with the response skipper to let him know we were out and about and headed off to our first arrest enquiry. 2 minutes round the corner I spot a moped rider who was missing an L plate and texting whilst riding. A quick U-turn and lighting him up with the blues later we have our first seizure as the male was riding on a revoked provisional due to having racked up several points at court previously for no insurance - and you guessed it - he hadn't learnt his lesson and bothered to get insurance this time either! Thankfully recovery were pretty speedy (a complete god send as I know we've all waited hours before!) and we were back enroute to the arrest enquiry. Unfortunately our man wasn't there, but I did manage to speak to him on the phone and he agreed to arrange an appointment to come in and be arrested on Monday. Not the result I was hoping for, but there were some relieved sighs from the student officers who hadn't made an arrest before! We moved on to the second arrest enquiry which as we didn't have a home address for the suspect we were attending his work place, a kebab shop. Cue panicky thoughts about being cut into donner sized pieces of meat with that bloody sword they use to cut the kebab... We decided that my oppo and a student would go in first and the other student and I would wait outside just out of sight in case it kicked off. As they went into the shop I noticed a member of public walk out to take a call and start walking quickly in the opposite direction. (He didn't see us, but was looking through the glass at the other officers). The he started jogging... Then he started running...! For what was the first of many times that shift I gave it legs after the suspect, shouting for the other pair to follow as I ran past the door. We rounded the corner into the car park to see the male trying to reverse his car out of the car park. Whilst my oppo tried to open the car door I drew my asp and at the top of my lungs politely informed the male I would do significant damage to his motor vehicle if he did not stop immediately and exit the vehicle... Or something similar He got out and was cuffed and nicked by one of the students. Upon being searched a box cutter was found in his pockets and he was further arrested for points and blades. A good result all round and the first pair of officers traveled with him back to custody. I decided that I would give another arrest enquiry a try as he wasn't expected to be in and we were after some intel to try and locate him. He wasn't in, but his Mum persuaded him to come home. I can't remember the last time I'd met such a delightful and polite suspect. </sarcasm> After much failed negotiations to coax him inside for the umpteenth time he clocked on to why we were there and gave it legs into the estate. (Are you noticing a pattern here? I am definitely not a fan of running either!) Long story short, with the help of NPAS and several response units he was tracked into a hiding place a good mile away from where we started over a fair few fences! Another one in custody for the MSC Following that we attended a few calls and assisted with the night time economy for the rest of the shift, but it wasn't as comical as the earlier part. Safe to say we slept well that night!
  10. Not sure this will surprise many. Knife crime across England and Wales has risen for the first time in four years, official figures have revealed. Police recorded 26,370 offences in 2014/15, up from 25,974 the previous year - breaking a downward trend since 2010/11. The Office for National Statistics said the increase was "real" and was unlikely to be due to changes in police recording practices http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-33547806

    Knife bodycam footage

    Quite a chilling video I've just come across on youtube. Shows the importance of our airwaves handsets and its features. I do wonder what will happen in 2016 though..
  12. Take a seat. It's a positive news story about the police http://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/news/scottish-news/armed-police-officer-chose-stabbed-5367176 Speedy recovery hoped for.
  13. Pregnant woman, 22, was beaten with baseball bats while giving birth Gang of five men broke into her home in Essex and demanded money They attacked pregnant woman and slashed her in the face with a knife She suffered a haemorrhage and was rushed to Basildon Hospital Young mother gave birth to a healthy baby on Tuesday despite injuries Police are now hunting five men, aged in the twenties, involved in attack A pregnant woman was beaten with baseball bats and slashed in the face with a knife after a masked gang burst into her home while she was giving birth. The 22-year-old was about to leave for hospital when five masked men smashed their way into her house in Basildon, Essex, using crowbars. She suffered a haemorrhage and started bleeding heavily after the gang attacked her with crowbars and a knife while her two-year-old child was asleep in bed. A pregnant woman was beaten with baseball bats and slashed in the face with a knife after a masked gang burst into her home in Beambridge (pictured), Essex Her 32-year-old partner, who was upstairs collecting the hospital bag, came running to protect her and said the young mother is now too traumatised to go back into the house. The mother-of-two, who has not been identified, was rushed to Basildon Hospital and gave birth to a healthy baby on Tuesday despite her injuries. Her partner said: 'Her contractions were about six minutes apart, so I went upstairs to get her hospital bag and to phone the babysitter to come and look after our two-year-old. 'The next thing I heard a loud smash - like a fish tank shattering. 'My partner started screaming my name and I just heard these men shouting something like 'where's the money?', 'give us the money'.' The 22-year-old, who has not been identified, was rushed to Basildon Hospital (pictured) and gave birth to a healthy baby on Tuesday The young mother (not pictured) is now too traumatised to return to her home after the horrifying ordeal 'I came down running down the stairs and they were attacking her. I just threw my arms round her to protect her. 'They carried on beating us. I was just shouting back at them, 'you are wrong man, she is in labour. 'Me and my girlfriend just started screaming and shouting for help.' The men grabbed the couple's iPad, a Sony Experia mobile phone and £60 in cash and then ran off. Police are now hunting the five men, all ages in their twenties with local accents, who broke into the home in Beambridge, Pitsea, on Monday night. Three of the men wore balaclavas and dark clothes, a fourth gang member was white and the fifth was mixed race. The woman's partner said: 'I can't even describe to you how angry I am. My partner is too traumatised to even go back to our home. She is going to need counselling to help her get through this. To do this to a woman who is in labour - it's sick.' Detective Inspector Joel Henderson, from Basildon CID, said: 'This was a shocking attack on a young woman who was in labour. It is vital we get those people responsible off the streets of Basildon.'

    Buying a Knife from USA

    I'm looking at buying this batman folding knife as a birthday present for my fiance. I can only find it available to buy in the USA. Is it possible to have it posted over to the UK without it being taken by customs? http://www.amazon.co...r=8-6&keywords= I know that it is illegal to have imported a 'flick knife' or a 'gravity knife', does this folding pocket knife fall under either of these categories? I've done some research online but find it all a bit confusing. I'd also been looking at some batman throwing stars but after research have found out these are illegal to even own in the UK! Is this true? These knifes would be just for display purposes as a memorabilia collector not to be used in any way.
