  1. I know this will probably vary depending on what kind of team you're on/role etc. When I was on response I used to carry a kit bag that could fit my hat/coat etc., along with various bits of paperwork. Being cheap, I just used a £15 holdhall from JJB, which kind of worked. Unfortunately, as it was just a holdall, paperwork and things did get tatty and now the whole bag has pretty much fallen apart after 2 years of being thrown around, so I'm looking for a replacement. What do people use as a kit bag? I know people use things of niton999 and patrol store, but from looking at some col

    Knife/ multi tool

    If you carry one (or more) what is it? Also would you recomend it? what are it's pros and cons? Hopefully this will give people who want one some advice and in also curious as to what people have. For the more visual of us post a link or picture I carry the Leatherman skeletool, I would recomend it as it's light and compact enough and has the main tools I require; knife, pliers, screwdrivers, bottle opener, and clips Pros, for it it's the lack of clutter and its ease of access for the blade (no need to open the tool up). I also think it looks cool! Cons, has a nylon holder, could be c

    Uniform and Eczema?

    For the past couple of months (ever since I've started wearing my fleece/coat over winter) I've been having problems with eczema on my torso and back. The combination of sweating and the stab vest being tight to my body have caused red patches to flare up and it's really irritating. Unfortunately it's a choice of being too hot or too cold, I can't go on foot patrol in just a wicking shirt and vest. Our force usually wear fleeces under stab vests, I was thinking of starting to wear my fleece over my stab vest and seeing if that helps my skin breath a little better, although I will look the odd

    Kit Belt vs Tac Vest

    So I have just converted to using my force-issued Tac Vest after 5 years of wearing a kit belt - and I'm a convert! I find it much, much easier to wear, much more comfortable, and everything is easily accessible and not in the way when I am trying to get in the car at high speed! What do you all think?

    Extra stuff

    What do you carry that may not be issued but you feel should be? What gear/equipment can you recommend others get their hands on and carry and why do you recommend it?

    Winter/Cold weather kit

    It's a bit chilly out there tonight (-1 at the moment...), so what do you have to keep away the cold? What recommendations do you have? Base layers? Currently have Primark's finest thermal base layer long johns and various base layer tops (merino and others) Gloves? Issued leather gloves with a wool lining (Met gloves). Scarf/Gaiter? Buff thingy-ma-gig and have just bought a cheapy fleece equivalent off of eBay for the grand total of £1. Any bargains out there?

    Vest Recommendations..

    Really not getting on with my belt kit. Very comfortable for me personally as I'm quite skinny so everything digs in... Looking at purchasing a vest! Any recommendations? Many thanks y'all! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    What's the story behind your handle

    I am often amused by the handle people choose for themselves on the site. A few people use their real names, whereas most, myself included, use a made up one. Mine, Cathedral Bobbie is based on my job as a Cathedral Constable. What's behind your handle, do tell.

    Post your kit belt

    On the old forum there was a topic on how you laid out your belt kit, and what you had where. Stepping it up a notch I thought I'd start one where you'd upload a picture of it instead. All kit belts welcome from UK police officers and PCSO to you guys abroad and in other jobs How do you feel about this? If not I'd be interested to know what you put where and of its personal issue kit/holders or from stores. Il post mine when I can figure out how (Tav vests welcome) Edit: I did it!:

    Introduction

    Hey guys, Thought I would start a topic just away from the main area to introduce yourself, whether serving, training or app stage or whether you just support our fab constabulary. keep it to just introductions as I don't want it going off track. I'm currently serving as a special constable for C Div, quite new to the team, attested start of August this year. My ambition is to apply for the regs in a couple of years or so. Cali

  13. I wrote this diary some time ago when the older forums were still active, hope you all enjoy. My life as a special started when I was at university, at the time I was studying Public Services. A friend who is now a serving officer was applying for the specials at the time and kept telling me to apply as he thought I'd be good for the job. So without giving it any thought I applied, once I'd hit send that was it, I felt a stone sink to my stomach. Around two months later I received some correspondence from a police email address, at first I wondered what I'd done but it turned out

Photograph: Casey Moore for the Guardian Six Metropolitan police officers accused of responding to an offer of assistance from an off-duty black firefighter by abusing him, dragging him from his car and shooting him with a Taser should face disciplinary charges for possible racial discrimination, the official watchdog has concluded.

  18. Just wanted to get an update as to what individual forces allow with regard to driving in the special constabulary. The old table is a a few years out of date - I know a few forces have new policies now. Here's a survey for you to complete if you like. I'll collate the responses into a snazzy table. Mods: Wasn't sure whether to put this in the specials recruitment forum or not. Please move if you think necessary.

    trauma kit

    Wish the current heightened threat situation combined with high stress on our ambulance service is have been considering our first aid kits. Most of our cars have them, and they are useless and empty and my personal kit is an off the shelf one which would be next to pointless when dealing with life threatening stuff. I have decided to get a kit, suitable for immediate trauma, like stabbing or gun shots. Nothing fancy. Just to hold the fort until the pros arrive. I was thinking a couple of good field dressings, like Israele bandage, a pair of scissors tape and foil blanket. Was wonderi

  24. Home Office response to BTP jobs has always been a prickly subject, but is mostly based on anecdote and personal experiences rather than cold hard fact. To that end I put in a FOI request to BTP to see what the situation actually is in reality. The request asked for numbers of incidents requiring police attendance and the number attended by HO forces. It was not possible to determine the reasons why HO attended, whether because they were requested by BTP or attended off their own initiative. Bearing that in mind here is a link to the data by HO force area. Key points: Intersetingl
