  1. https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/politics/4969204/theresa-may-slashes-413million-from-police-budget-after-vowing-to-protect-cops/ I have been staggered to read this and the budget overall. So not only is there no increase or mention of police within the budget it turns out another half a billion has been sneakily cut. This government is a disgrace and as I have said before this is ideological rather than necessary. I think we need to dig out the bonesaw now, we’ve well and truly started cutting in to the bone. This isn’t intended to be a brexit debate all over again but I find it so frustrating that 3 billion can be found to be set aside for Brexit over the next 2 years, something which is completely unnecessary in the first place and going to actually cause us more misery. Not to mention the actual settlement bill which will run in to billions. Its just so frustrating. Where is all the extra funding specifically for Mental Health services? Particularly with the changes to 136, where is the extra money desperately needed for social care? This government is a collection of jesters and fools.
  2. Transfer to Surrey Police?

    Hello all, I am looking to transfer to Surrey Police and have a number of questions. If anyone can answer some or all of them it would be a great help! If anyone has recently transferred any general comments or advice surrounding the process would be appreciated. Thanks... Is overtime easy to come by? Is this usually staying on to help the next shift or can extra days be requested etc... How soon after starting would a response driving course be given? Are these easy to get or is there a long waiting list? Do police station have parking for personal cars? What is the shift pattern like, is it the usual 6 on 4 off?
  3. The real face of British policing can be revealed today amid escalating attacks on forces across the country. Full Story - Mirror
  4. Has anyone got any experience with the Police Now Graduate Scheme? https://www.policenow.org.uk/the-programme/about-the-programme/ Looking at graduate schemes, and this one keeps popping up. What are people's opinion of the scheme, and whether it would be a worth while experience or is it a bad idea, and other graduate schemes would be a better option?
  5. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-41677046 This is being reported across a lot of the papers and news programmes. Difficult reading again for chiefs and the government. Surely it is becoming harder and harder for them to keep their heads buried in the sand particularly when we are talking about rises in violent crime, knife crime and serious offences such as murders. This linked with the recent discussions on the unprecedented terrorism threat. There was a minister on the news at lunchtime regurgitating the same old lines about protecting police budgets, flat cash or slight increases in budgets etc etc. I also think they have used up the excuse now of crime rising due to better recording practices as this was used to explain rises last year. Will it make any difference though?
  6. The events held in London, Manchester and Birmingham are only open to ‘women and black or ethnic minority’ people who have applied to join the force. Full Story - Metro Daily Mail Version For once comments under a DM article about the police seem to be spot on.
  7. Your an ambulance! But seriously, the instance of ambulance calling police with a medical emergency they simply can't cover seems to be increasing. We are frequently asked to go and end up driving the person to hospital because we can't leave the person and can't wait the 4h for the next ambulance. I'm not blaming them, they are cut to the bone and worse. Does anyone have a force policy or guidance in place about this matter? We carry a huge risk doing transport, especially without proper medical assessment and should something go wrong the IPCC will be ready with their claws out.. I can't find anything on our systems that is very helpful.
  8. http://news.sky.com/story/rotherham-sex-abuse-victim-fights-for-law-change-11060231 Just noticed this article whilst browsing Sky News. I completely understand the spirit of this however it seems like it would be extremely difficult to implement. How would it be decided when someone comes forward? Are we talking about after conviction of the abusers? What if they are found not guilty later on? Are we talking about minor offences? Surely not talking about serious victim based crimes? Its a nice idea for the genuine victims of exploitation, I just think it potentially raises more concerns, questions and issues.
  9. A motorist was shot dead when armed police fired up to ten times through a car window and dragged him out on to the carriageway after being chased off the M5 by police this morning. Full Story - Daily Mail
  10. Portishead shooting: Man dies after police surround car 27 September 2017 From the section Bristol Media playback is unsupported on your device Media captionVideo from scene of Portbury Hundred incidentA man has died in a "police shooting" involving a car near the M5 motorway in the Bristol area. The incident happened on the Portbury Hundred (A369) near junction 19 for Portishead at around 09:30 BST. One eyewitness told the BBC he saw officers firing at the passenger window and dragging a man out the car. Avon and Somerset Police confirmed the fatality and has referred the shooting to the Independent Police Complaints Commission. Latest updates from the scene Image caption An air ambulance is at the scene of the shooting The force said it was not terror-related. David Ellison told BBC Radio Bristol he saw officers fire between six and 10 shots through the passenger window using handguns. "They surrounded it. They shot maybe five, six or ten times," he said. "Then they dragged a man from the car to resuscitate him. "It came off the roundabout towards Portishead and then was boxed in by cars." The BBC's Jon Kay, who is at the scene, said there was a red car with smashed windows visible behind the police cordon. A police spokesman said: "We can confirm a man died earlier this morning in an incident involving police firearms on The Portbury Hundred (A369) in Portishead. "We have referred the incident to the Independent Police Complaints Commission." An air ambulance is at the scene along with Great Western Ambulance's critical care team. The Portbury Hundred links the M5 motorway to the town of Portishead, to the west of Bristol. Image caption A police cordon is in place at the Portbury Hundred View the full article
  11. Police admit they may have to work with "paedophile hunters" after figures obtained by the BBC revealed a rise in their evidence being used in court. Full Story - BBC
  12. A West Midlands police officer has been removed from frontline duties after he was filmed telling a black man: “You’d be the first one I’d shoot if I had a gun.” Full Story - Guardian Clearly the officers like most of us are sick of the hypocrisy of BLM, and the comment about shooting the man was made in jest, however these videos just give more ammunition to BLM and the like, which is ridiculous.
  13. Reading the resignation letter of PC 11834 Joe Torkington made me think about who can police officers realistically vote for at the next election. The Tories, the so called party of law and order, which has crippled the police service or the Labour Party which is lead by as cabal of Trotskyist revolutionaries with a history of being very anti-police. What a choice. Turkeys voting for Christmas or Thanksgiving
  14. This video is doing it's rounds on Social Media, long story short a UC Berkeley University Officer confronts an unlicenced illegal food vendor and ends up confiscating the blokes money from the wallet. I've dealt with similar incidents, not through vendors but buskers and the like - from a purely British perspective no way would it be deemed acceptable to 'confiscate' or 'seize' a buskers/beggars earnings. One thing I will say which alot of people seem to be missing is that unlicenced vendors selling food there is a potential health risk there, I don't know what kind of training/qualifications are needed to serve food in the US but if someone got sick from a bad hotdog what recourse would they have if the unlicenced, untrained vendor just packs up and leaves? None... That being said I'm not too sure about the confiscation of cash.
  15. Police in Norfolk have apologised for the way they responded to a weekend of rape, assault and theft that left a seaside town on 'lawless lockdown' last month. Full Story - Daily Mail I admit i don't know much about travellers, however it seems in this incident Norfolk Police initially did not want to blame a whole community for the rape and other crimes, hence they downplayed it as "low level disorder" however now they have admitted it was the whole travelling community responsible for the trouble over the 3 days, hopefully prosecutions will follow.
  16. A senior police officer today appealed for an end to the “mindless violence” in east London after a 14-year-old boy died after being shot in the head outside a children’s playground. Full Story - Evening Standard Why are black lives matter not kicking up a fuss? Why is Lee Jasper not tweeting away? Why are marches not being organised? Why are hashtags not being formed? Shocking that a 14 year old boy was shot dead, another boy was shot and potentially left with " life changing injuries" that is not to mention the various stabbings in London over the last few days. Surely the time for marching is now?
  17. Police have arrested 33 people at Notting Hill Carnival for alleged crimes ranging from being drunk a disorderly to assaulting a police officer. Full Story - Daily Mail
  18. A man has been arrested on suspicion of grievous bodily harm and assault outside Buckingham Palace after two police officers were injured. The officers suffered minor injuries in the course of arresting the man who was in possession of a knife, the Metropolitan Police said. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-41055985
  19. A tweet from the Metropolitan Police has sparked an online backlash after a drugs bust in Catford, south-east London, was linked to the Notting Hill Carnival. Announcing the seizure of a kilogram of suspected heroin, the force said the operation had been carried out "in the run up to the Notting Hill Carnival". Social media users were quick to question the link between the seizure in Catford and the festival, which takes place annually, about 12 miles away in west London. Some Twitter users accused the force of attempting to "demonise" the carnival. Grime artist Stormzy was among those to question the link: "How many drugs did you lot seize in the run up to Glastonbury or [are] we only doing tweets like this for black events?," he wrote in a widely shared post on Twitter. More than 300 people have been arrested across London as part of the Met's operation to prevent crime at Notting Hill Carnival. Responding to their original tweet, the Met clarified that prior to the carnival the force is "disrupting gang crime, drug supply, knife crime and offences that could impact the safety of the weekend". Chief Superintendent Robyn Williams, the Met's spokesperson for Notting Hill Carnival, said earlier: "Today's operation is aimed at ensuring that those who intend to cause trouble at Carnival are prohibited from doing so. "We are committed to ensuring that Carnival remains a safe, vibrant and enjoyable event. People can expect to see operational activity right up until, and throughout the Bank Holiday weekend." But many replied to the Met's tweet with their own tales of seemingly unrelated woes. "In the run up to Notting Hill Carnival, I've covered my dog with a blanket because it's too cold in Hemel Hempstead," one social media user wrote. Referencing the recent solar eclipse, writer Beth McColl wrote: "In the run up to Notting Hill Carnival, the moon has appeared to make an aggressive move to "take over" the solar system. Carnival to blame". Another social media user said: "In the build up to Notting Hill Carnival I've made myself some toast. I'm in Liverpool". Source - BBC
  20. This is the dramatic moment a gang RAMS a police car, injuring the officers in a desperately bid to escape. Birmingham Mail Birmingham seems to be turning into London, massive issues with knife crime, gangs running riot, more and more people aggressively challenging police officers. Or it could be that the media are picking up more of the negative stuff than before.
  21. Police are investigating after an officer appeared ‘to flip the bird’ at an illegal biker who was laughing in the face of the law. Full Story - Birmingham Mail This story is absurd on so many levels i don't know where to start, however good to see the officer getting support from his CC, instead of a witchhunt being launched because of a video on social media.
  22. I have noticed a couple of news articles recently like this and this where police officers have received alot of criticism for their views on political/work issues. Recently there has also been issues where officers have been engaging with people like Lee Jasper, Twitter had banned Jasper for a while on Twitter, however he is now back and has retaliated by posting the name and station address of Sgt Harry Trevithick Tangye on his blog post. So generally speaking is Twitter worth the trouble? Should police officers be getting involved in political/social debates on Twitter? Is engaging with the likes of Jasper a good idea? My views are that Twitter is a fantastic tool, i do enjoy reading Tweets which are more than the bog standard cooperate views, and officers tweets their own thoughts gives an interesting insight. But where do you draw the line?
  23. Police Scotland Application

    Hi everyone, If anyone has been or is currently going through the Police Scotland recruitment process especially through West Command could they give me a bit of help. I sent my application back in April and got my confirmation of receipt on April 28th and it was a long wait until the 2nd of August when I was told I had passed the paper sift. They said it may take some time to provide me with a further update however I was wondering do you get invited to the initial fitness test within a few weeks from that email or do you still have to wait another few months? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. Also I'm not sure what tags are or how they work so I just stuck Police Scotland in.
  24. Scotland Yard officers have used force against a disproportionately large number of black people in recent months. Official figures released on Tuesday showed that the number of people of every other ethnic group against whom force was used was relatively low. Full Story - Guardian
  25. A large gang of masked protesters have clashed with riot police after blocking a busy east London road in an angry protest over the death of Rashan Charles. http://www.standard.co.uk/news/london/masked-gang-blockade-kingsland-road-and-intimidate-drivers-in-flash-protest-at-death-of-rashan-a3599091.html
