    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?
  3. 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.

    Gays in the police force

    Does the uk police forces support openly gay people? Or any other type of gays?

    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.

  12. 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.

    Transfer Overseas

    Has anyone here made the decision to transfer as a UK Police Officer to AUS, New Zealand or Canada? I'm aware of previous recruitment drives although currently I can not find any recent processes (In last few years). All appear to require permanent residency status, although if sponsored like the previous drives, the process is a lot simpler and you have a guaranteed offer of employment. Is there somewhere that you can see all Overseas Transfer opportunities? Instead of going onto each forces website. I'm not absolutely committed at the moment but if an opportunity came up, I'd definitely take it.

    Week 1

    Week 1 of being an operational police officer certainly saw me out of my depth and struggling to come to terms with the position I was now in, however, it was also the most exhilarating and interesting week. It was an uphill battle from the very beginning, trying to remember the training we had been given but also trying to bring the human being element into it as well. Week 1 involved my first arrest, a warrant on a shipping container, first domestic, a hate crime, a sudden death and a high risk missing person enquiry. My first arrest was a terrifying experience however it was something that will stay with me forever. I feel that it went well and I was able to remember all my training and the correct processes whilst dealing with the arrested male. When I was called to attend a sudden death I was terrified about how I was going to deal with it as I had never seen someone dead before. Looking back on it I will admit that I was verging on being in shock when we arrived and although the family dealt with it well I did not really know what to say to them. It was a massive learning curve and feel ready to lead on the next. The main struggle for me this week has been getting to grips with the computer systems. Having had our training on this before Christmas and completely forgetting how to use it, it has been extremely difficult and almost embarrassing having to keep asking people how to work it. I do feel a little more comfortable on it however still have a long way to go to figuring it all out. It is a massive emotional and physical drain dealing with so many different people day in day out, most of whom are at rock bottom, however what I have certainly learnt from this week is that the main skill in becoming a good police officer is your ability to talk and engage with people.

About us

Police Community was originally founded in 2014 by two serving Police Officers.

In 2016 it was incorporated as a limited company called RAW Digital Media Limited and then purchased 3 other forums; Police Specials, UK Police Online and Police UK to form the largest policing discussion forum network in the UK. In 2019 the decision was taken to merge all four forums into this main form of www.police.community
