  1. Hi all, Does anyone know of any home office forces that don't subscribe to the college of policing's apprenticeship/degree scheme policy? I'm aware that some forces are against it despite it being implemented by the COP. Thanks in advance.
  2. Leyton machete attack: Police officer 'critical' after stabbing https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-london-49273979
  3. I was recently successful at the assessment centre for South Wales Police (55%), however due to the high number of applicants, I’ve been told that it’s unlikely I will be included in the next Officer intake and they cannot gaurantee my a place on the March 2020 intake. They have offered to transfer my application to Gwent Police for intake in either March or September 2019, but they do not have similar arrangements with Dyfed Powys Police. I am aware Dyfed Powys Police are opening the recruitment window on the 28th January, but have stated that to transfer my assesment cnetre score, I would need to have achieved 60%+ to be considered. If I were to withdraw my current application from SWP would I be be able to submit an application for Dyfed-Powys Police and resit the assessment centre? It has been more than the requisite 6 months since I submitted my application to SWP (July 2018) and I anticipate that 6 months would have lapsed since I passed the SEARCH Assessment Centre (October 2018) by the time my application were to reach that stage with Dyfed-Powys Police if successful.
  4. Hi all, Admittedly this is a long shot but is there anyone who has made the transition over to Gibraltar to become a royal Gibraltar police officer? If so can you give an insight into what this was like and what the training involved whilst over there. I'm currently considering a transition due to the higher wages for police constables and would like to know more than what the website tells you. Any advice would be appreciated.
  5. Hi guys, So had recruitment already happened for 2015? I've checked out the recruitment webpage which states "We will be re-opening our next recruitment campaign during 2015". What's the deal? I'd be interested in putting in an application. I'm a Special over in North Wales waiting for recruitment windows to open and the West Mercia area isn't too far for me to uproot to. That is, unless, they only recruit from their Specials / PCSOs / locals? Let me know! Cheers, Ed
  6. For anyone considering joining West Yorkshire Police as a police officer they will be reopening their recruitment for 2018 starting on Monday 26th February through until Sunday 11th March.

  10. An attempted murder inquiry has been launched after a driver reversed, dragging a police officer down the street. The incident happened in the Sighthill area of Glasgow at about 13:00 on Tuesday. The officer had been speaking to the driver of a red Vauxhall Astra when he suddenly threw the car into reverse. He then got out of his car in Alford Street and fled on foot. The police officer was unhurt. A Police Scotland spokesman said: "The officer did not require medical treatment and resumed duty following the incident. The man in the car then ran off. "Police are following a positive line of inquiry." The Scottish Police Federation has been made aware of the incident. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-glasgow-west-39433018 Sounds bad, but I understand the police officer was left shaken but unhurt.

  16. My first of two ride-alongs I took part in during the application process for Thames Valley Police for the role of Police Officer. A cold Friday evening in February 15:00 - 24:00 13:30 - Arrived at station, supposed to be collected at 13:40 for safety briefing. 15:00 - Actual start time, accompanying officer had a shift change and I was forgotten about. Oops! 15:30 - Signed the indemnity document, policies and a quick overview of the night's plan of action. Tonight would be an operation to combat Anti-social behavior in the town centre and identifying and arresting a few individuals from a serious assault on a young girl the previous week. 15:45 – Meet and greet the local officers and walk into the neighborhood policing office, nervous at first but very friendly bunch. 16:00 - Briefing room - Situation and aim of the evening to arrest outstanding individuals, Intelligence and local contacts assigned and distributed by the sergeant. Section 35 authorization is given to disperse youths in the town centre if necessary. 16:30 – Patrols are a dispersed on foot and in cars. Sergeant will be in the van. We are on foot. 7:00 - Arrive at bus station with two PC’s, due to half-term and it being a crossroads for kids at the local secondary schools there is a large crowd of probably 25 teenagers milling around the area. Identified youths are told to vacate the area of be section 35’d. A few huffs/puffs as people leave and are told to go home. One individual is identified by local security contacts as possibly being a person of interest, false alarm. Teenagers find ‘Civilian Observer’ tag on the front of the high-vis a laugh and liken it to work experience. Embarrassing but expected. "So are you like, a work experience bobby"? Area is saturated with high-vis and locals are concerned something serious has gone down. Locals are reassured and then it quietens down. 17:30 – 19:00 - Continue to patrol on foot around the area, liaise with contacts at a local fast-food restaurant who have posted security guards for the purpose of trying to combat youths. We Stop and talk to local people who are happy to see the area saturated with police. Story of troubles in previous weeks given by McDonalds staff. E.g. banging on the windows, large crowds of rowdy teenagers etc. Security staff are advised to stay in contact via radio to local police and assured that the issues will be dealt with. Speak the local shopping centre security guards who share some Information regarding people of interest. Back to the bus-station and the remaining teenagers are told to scoot. We go back to the station to get some better quality images from the CCTV regarding people of of interest and compare the footage to what was seen earlier in the day. 19:30 – Grab a tactical burger/kebab and chips on the way back to the station for a break. 20:00 - Follow-up meet with the rest of the NPT, as the town is quiet (cold weather) the teams are given new call signs and dispersed further out from the town centre and told to keep an eye out for the group of interest. 20:30 – A home visit is made to a person who tried to purchase an imitation firearm off the internet which was intercepted by RM. Details are exchanged and informed that the gun has been seized by customs. There is no fuss by the homeowner who is told the gun will be destroyed. No further action to be taken. 21:00 – 22:30 – Patrol in the car and observe a bus laden with kids leaving the area. Bus is followed to make sure they leave the area and do not try to come back to the town centre. They successfully leave the area. Continue to patrol around the area. I am about to say it is a ‘quiet’ evening and then one of the officers I am with remarks that the word is banned in the station in case I jinx it! 23:00 – Arrive back the station for the end of the shift as paperwork needs to be filled. Shake hands and thank the two PC’s for the evening. Overall a very standard evening. Was a good experience and was able to ask a lot of questions and got some good nuggets of information!

    Question- Special Recruitment

    Hello all, Just saw that Hampshire Constabulary are recruiting for Special Constables again, and a question came to my mind. Hoping some of you may be able to answer it. It states that the minimum age to join up is 18yrs old, and I believe this is with most forces. But I have started to hear that you can join before the age of 18, or at least apply and do all your training, as you will be 18 by the time you have finished training. I heard from one Officer that you may be able to apply at just over 17 and a half years old. Thanks for reading and I will be very grateful for anyone that can answer this question for me, something I have been wondering about for quite some time since I first heard about it.

  23. Hi, does anybody have an assessment centre upcoming or recently passed one and willing to discuss? :)
  24. But dozens have come to the defence of the officer's decision to play, saying it shows his willingness to engage with all sectors of the community – Tell us what you think A policeman photographed playing badminton in full uniform with homeless protesters has been praised for building community relations after coming under fire. The officer was snapped playing the sport at the homeless camp and the images were uploaded to the Manchester Angels Facebook page. A comment was posted alongside the images, slating the force for ‘wasting taxpayers’ money’. Well intended – the officer's actions praised for building bridges with the city's homeless It said: “£88,000 is what GMP are saying via the MEN that they have spent ‘policing’ the #HomelessCampMCR. "And this is what the taxpayers money is being spent on. #BobbyBadminton!? "When people are dying on the streets of Manchester... We believe that the police shouldn’t be wasting time playing around.” They asked people to share if they agreed – but this met a wall of criticism with many siding with the officer’s friendly nature. Russell Hampson’s comment was liked almost 40 times. He wrote: “Don’t you think community integration with the police is important? “People need to be able to see individual officers as a person and public servant, not part of a big scary machine that’s here to kill everybody’s fun. Things like is are important.” Kelly Hopkins wrote: “I think you will find it costs more to police football matches and edl protests than this. Most police officers sympathise with these homeless people and want them to be safe, what’s more disgusting is the public library banning them from using the toilet. McDonald’s stopping people buying them food.” Steavi D’Arienzo commented: “Leave them alone, they’re required to police the event and if they behave in a human way like and help build community/police relations then good on him, what’s more disgusting is the sheer number of homelessness in the city yet the actions of the bobby is what’s upsetting everyone. Get a grip people.” Chris Glover wrote: “Do you think the police have wanted to spend 88,000 on policing this? Or put the resources into more serious issues? They have to have a presence there, most likely directed from Manchester council. “On a whole the police do a fantastic job with very few resources in tough times. Why not spend your time thanking them for the brilliant job they do instead ey?!” http://linkis.com/co.uk/2AFvM
  25. AN enraged man attacked a police officer with an axe during a road rage incident outside a police station in Derby. Mohammed Rashid swung the axe down towards PC James Poulton's head after the officer tried to stop him smashing the rear window of a car in Cotton Lane. PC Poulton, who had rushed out of the police station when he heard a collision, managed to deflect the blow but the axe caused 9cm and 4cm grazes to his right arm. The attacker raised the axe again and tried to strike the officer's chest but missed. Rashid, 25, of Sale Street, Derby, was one of four men attacking a Volkswagen Bora with weapons. Derby Crown Court heard that the men inside the Bora had their hands over their heads trying to protect themselves from the onslaught. The officer shouted for them to stop and two men – Haroon Tariq and Zahid Mahfooz – ran back to the other car involved in the collision, a Volkswagen Passat. But Rashid took another swing at the windscreen before running off, heard the court. Then, as the officer caught up with him, Rashid turned and attacked him with the axe. After Rashid had swung at him twice, the officer pulled out his baton and Rashid ran to the car. PC Poulton went after him and snatched the car keys away, at which point Rashid tried to swing a punch at him. Three other officers then came to PC Poulton's assistance and they managed to restrain Rashid and take him inside the police station. Tariq and Mahfooz were also arrested. When police searched the area they found the axe, a crowbar and a meat cleaver. Sentencing the three men, Recorder Stephen Thomas said: "It's difficult to think of a more serious assault than one that involves an axe and upon a police officer carrying out his duty." Recorder Thomas said the background to the attack was related to something that had happened earlier that day. "It was, therefore, a revenge attack led by you Mr Rashid with your axe," he said. Recorder Thomas said the officers had run outside the station after hearing the noise of the collision and saw the passengers from one car attacking the other. He said: "In particular, you, Mr Rashid, had equipped yourself with an axe and were seen to be smashing the rear window of the vehicle." Rashid admitted assault causing actual bodily harm on August 1, 2013, and was jailed for two years. Haroon Tariq, 23, of Pelham Street, Derby, admitted using threatening, abusive or insulting words or behaviour and was given a four-month jail sentence suspended for 18 months, with 200 hours of unpaid work. Mahfooz, 29, of Clarence Road, Derby, also admitted the public order offence, as well as possessing cocaine with intent to supply and possessing cannabis, and was jailed for a total of three years. Julia Farrant, for Rashid, who had no previous convictions, said: "The references speak of a hard-working young man. he plays a large role, both in his family and in his employment. It is an offence which is completely out of character. "Mr Rashid says he is shocked and ashamed by what he did. It was committed in anger after the collision altercation with the people in the other vehicle." http://www.derbytelegraph.co.uk/Men-jailed-PC-hurt-road-rage-axe-attack-outside/story-26872825-detail/story.html
