  1. Hi Members For starters, I would like to voice my appreciation to all the active members in here for all the positive and helpful advice given in this forum. I have trawled through many of the topics and posts and do feel that I've learnt something from many of your shared experiences. I have worked in the private sector for many years, in a managerial capacity, but also served in the Armed Forces for several years prior to that. Although I'm no longer a youngster (so to speak) it has been my hankering for a long time to join the Police Services. The right time simply never seemed to come along. Until now. So, a month ago I bit the proverbial bullet and as soon as I saw the Metropolitan Police recruitment gates flung open again I took the plunge and finally did it. I applied online on 30/09. Got through the paper-sifting and then passed the secondary online tests. I now have a confirmed Day 1 Assessment in London on 01/11. I'm currently preparing for the assessments with the help of several related books I bought online, and will attend an Assessment Day training course down in Kent on 22/10. With a lot of the advice I've absorbed from the posts in this forum, and with all my own studying in preparation for the big day, all I can do now is hope (and pray) it goes to plan on the day, and thereafter. I'm not deluded in any way by thinking it will be an easy ride ahead, but I am a firm believer that anything is achievable, if you really want it and if you put your mind to it. Good luck to all the other applicants too! If I may share this link, it strikes a cord in me that I know I am making the right decision. https://youtu.be/mO0FFoM2S8A

    Police officer stabbed.

    Boris Johnson, the London mayor, has said the 314 people arrested at this year’s Notting Hill carnival was “simply too many” amid concerns over a surge in knife crime. Scotland Yard is to review policing of the event after the highest number of arrests since 2008, when Europe’s biggest street festival ended in a riot. For full story please use following link http://www.theguardian.com/culture/2015/sep/01/notting-hill-carnival-surge-knife-crime I hope the officer makes a full and speedy recovery. Never experienced this carnival but sounds a wonderful event to be deployed to.

    The Met: BBC One (New 6 Part Series)

    The Met: BBC One (New 6 Part Series) Documentary following the officers of Britain's biggest and busiest police service as they deal with life, death, crime and its victims, all across the capital. Trailer: Episode 1: Filmed over the course of a year, The Met follows officers of Britain's biggest and busiest police service as they deal with life, death, crime and its victims, all across the capital. In 2011, a 29-year-old black man and suspected gang member called Mark Duggan was fatally shot by a firearms officer in Tottenham. The officer believed Duggan had a gun and that he might use it. The Met's handling of the situation in the days that followed sparked some of the worst riots in London's history. An inquiry is about to announce whether the killing was lawful or unlawful. It's creating anxiety in Scotland Yard and tension on the streets of Tottenham, one of the most racially diverse areas of Britain and home to the Duggan family. Management at Scotland Yard is busy planning around the verdict: whatever the outcome, they are anxious that it may spark fresh riots. Victor Olisa is one of just five borough commanders in the Met from a black or ethnic minority background. He was moved to Tottenham after the riots to try to heal the Met's relationship with some of the community. When the verdict is announced, his station becomes the focus of community frustrations and the pressure is on Victor to manage the situation, which he does by asking for help from community leaders. In the weeks that follow, tensions between some of London's black community and the Met are running high. Police think it's time for a new approach. At the annual Splash street party in Brixton, they work with the black community to police the event the way the community wants it policed. But can this approach work when gangs have caused chaos in previous years? And can there ever be a long-term solution to the troubled history of London's police and some of the city's black community?
  9. Two Metropolitan Police officers have been interviewed under caution over suggestions they failed to properly respond to an incident in which a man was killed. The two sergeants from Croydon, south London, are on restricted duties pending the outcome of the inquiry. Andrew Else, 52, was stabbed more than 200 times during an incident in Selsdon Park Road, Croydon, in April 2014. The claims came to light during an ongoing misconduct probe, the Met said. 'Held to account' The Met said officers were at the scene of the attack within seven minutes. Paranoid schizophrenic Ephraim Norman, 24, admitted Mr Else's manslaughter by reason of diminished responsibility in February and was ordered to be detained indefinitely at the maximum security hospital Broadmoor in February. A file has been handed to the Crown Prosecution Service regarding the two sergeants, who have not been suspended. Det Ch Supt Alaric Bonthron, from the Directorate of Professional Services, which is carrying out the investigation, said: "The suggestion that any police officer has in some way failed to do their duty and respond properly to any call for a response must be fully and properly investigated. "If any officer has failed in their duty it is only right that they are held to account. "Everyday in London police officers work hard to keep the public safe. Allegations such as these trouble us all." View the full article
