  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. Prior to the National Crime Recording Standard adoption in 2002, a few police forces adopted the standard. Pre NCRS Violence against the person using the old rules in 1997, it was 230,756. I had to remove the categories of Racially or religiously aggravated common assault,common assault (includes some minor injury),Cruelty to and neglect of children,Racially or religiously aggravated harassment,and Harassment to make it compatible with pre NCRS Violence against the person. https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/116649/rec-crime-1898-2002.xls https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/445662/rec-crime-2003-2015.ods For 2002, the Pre Standard number was 545,731 Violence against the person. By the way, 2002 would have been the last year numbers could be done according to the old standard. I read somewhere In a document that starting in 2003, it was stated that it was now very difficult to separate and compare numbers to the old standard. According to the Crime in England and Wales 2001/02 on page 75, is stated that according to the pre NCRS standard it was 570,876. Not 650,000 according to the standard. http://library.college.police.uk/docs/hordsolr/rdsolr3203.pdf The 2003-2015 document has pushed minor injury with common assaults into less serious woundings. Numbers using the old categories pre NCRS for Violence against the person 256,070 1997 230,756 1998 (old rules) 224,340 1998 (new rules) 232,368 1999 228,198 2000 241,554 2001 West Midlands adopted the NCRS in 1999. Staffordshire adopted the NCRS in 1999. Avon and Somerset adopted the NCRS in 2000. Lancashire adopted the NCRS in 2000. Kent adopted the NCRS in 2000. West Mercia adopted the NCRS in 2001. North Wales adopted the NCRS in 2001. Cumbria adopted in NCRS in 2001. The rest of the police forces adopted it in 2002. I feel that the NCRS should have never been adopted because you cannot compare the pre NCRS old standard with the NCRS. Now the police have to record crimes regardless if the crime occurred or not, merely because the “victim” has said the crime has occurred. We really need to scrap the NCRS.
  3. A private police service is mounting the UK’s first private prosecutions for theft and other “minor” crimes because it claims the police have “given up” taking them to court. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2020/01/02/private-security-firm-mounts-uks-first-private-prosecutions/amp/

    Jan intake

    Hi all, Registered here a few months ago while going through the recruitment process as a regular. After several months I've finally had confirmation that I've passed everything (yes!) and been offered a Jan intake which I've accepted. Just after some advice on whether there's anything I should start doing in prep for my start date or anything to get etc? Looking forward to starting my policing career in the New Year! Thanks in advance!
  10. I've been on a bit of a nostalgia trip recently and have ended up watching loads of old Pathe news reels including this one.
  11. Police say it is "disappointing" that a man who skipped court twice after spitting at a police officer has avoided prison. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.leeds-live.co.uk/news/leeds-news/police-hit-out-after-thug-17279823.amp So spit at a Police Officer than skip court twice and get a suspended sentence at the end .😑 Where is the punishment?

    General TV Chat

    This is the General TV Chat thread. If it's on television, or other streaming service, and it's police or law related, you can chat about it here. If you can find a link to the 'On Demand' (e.g. iPlayer, ITV Hub, All4/4OD etc) that makes things easier for others to engage.

    Job opportunity

    If I carry a weapon in self defence and is given a suspended sentence by a judge,will this affect new job opportunities for me in the Uk?
  16. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7586499/Police-chief-posted-Pronouns-Day-video-slammed-wasting-time.html I know that it is in the Mail but surely our Senior Command Officers should have something better to do. I live within the area and I have not spoken to anyone who has any support for the actions by the Deputy Chief Constable. Her officers are under staffed, under equipped, and poorly led. Officers do not deserved to be led by donkey's. I was also wonder how long Rainbow colouring has been part of official uniform epaulettes?

    Making mistakes

    We all make mistakes, even British police officers. My mistake was not being knowledgeable about weapons during riots. I had said that I believe that carrying weapons in self defence was unacceptable. This was always my understanding. However, based on my understanding of riots being a dangerous circumstance, I thought it would be okay to carry a weapon during a riot. But as someone said “it has to imminent.” An threat of an attack. I read that most people linked arms and marched to push rioters out of an area, not having weapons. Interesting. I explained everything to my aunt and she even told me, you are not to carry weapons, stay as far away as possible from the riots. Please understand, I’m not an ignorant American. If I was your normal everyday American, I would have been demanding and mean. I would have believed and said the opposite and I would have clamped down on my pro 2nd amendment beliefs. I understand the British laws are there to protect people from killing eachother and another acts of reckless violence. The British people are a free people and safety is paramount. It was an misunderstanding on my part. misunderstand is the word I should have used. I thought the police officers on the forum were the ones misunderstood. It was learning experience. You guys really helped me out on this one. A man during the riots, had a crowbar and I asked a police officer if it was acceptable for him to have that crowbar. He told me because of the dangerous circumstances, it was okay for him to have it. I guess different police officers have different views on what is acceptable and what is imminent. And by posting that question on here, I thought the police on here would agree. I do mostly agree that in a peaceful society like England, weapons for self defence is not necessary. But the Riot question posts difficulty for me. But please don’t have any hard or personal feelings towards me, I’m just trying to figure things out. I’m going to write a book on these issues and I need to have my facts straightened out. I love England and it’s culture. If I was able, I would move to England in a heartbeat. I believe in English society over American society.

    Week 4

    Week 4 was certainly an interesting one. It saw my first arrest for drink driving, once again looking for a missing person who was allowed to walk out of where she was being cared and also saw me attend a nasty domestic between a mother and son. I am now confident is how to deal with missing people and compact, I feel confident in dealing with drink drivers but I am still a little unsure on domestics. I have been to a few now but there is something about them that I just cannot seem to grasp. Perhaps it is the pure desperation that these people are experiencing and I am the only person that they can turn to to sort out their lives when they are at rock bottom. Hopefully I will be able to get the hang of them and deliver the service that those victims expect of me. The excitement and thrill of being a police officer was not wearing thin as it is a job like no other however I was becoming mentally and physically exhausted and the demand on the body and brain was one I had never imagined. Despite this it is such an exciting job that you just forget about how drained you are and get on with it, leaving work knowing that you might have made a difference to someone’s life is enough for me. You most certainly get dunked in the deep end on your 10 weeks but the excitement of it all leaves me itching for the next shift.

  22. A police medical examiner drove to deal with a fatal crash after an afternoon of drinking. https://www.derbytelegraph.co.uk/news/local-news/police-medical-examiner-turns-up-3305301
  23. A Scottish judge had to walk out of his courtroom yesterday to jail a man for an horrific machete attack - because the violent thug was too dangerous for the court and remained locked in a police van. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7399547/Judge-leaves-courtroom-sentence-machete-thug-two-years-jail-hes-locked-POLICE-VAN.html
  24. An investigation into the policing of UK festivals has revealed arrest rates at Notting Hill Carnival are almost identical to Glastonbury, suggesting controversial crime narratives surrounding the London event are misplaced. https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/m.huffingtonpost.co.uk/amp/entry/notting-hill-carnival-arrest-rates-same-as-glastonbury_uk_5d5d1d18e4b063487e9519d5/ I have never understood this argument, how much violent crime do we get at the Notting Hill carnival every year compared to Glastonbury? Why did the Huffington post not break down the figures? Sadly this story has resulted in people on social media concluding that the only reason so much police resources are used at the Notting Hill Carnival is because they claim the Met are institutionally racist.
