  1. Police have been told to use “exceptional powers for exceptional circumstances only” during the coronavirus outbreak, following a miscarriage of justice. https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/coronavirus-act-2020-police-powers-fine-marie-dinou-a9446496.html%3famp

    All is not well in GMP Command

    The above is to link from a NARPO site and catalogues serious allegations against the GMP Command and the Mayor of Greater Manchester. It is a long read but, a very interesting one. It highlights the dangers of being a "Whistle Blower" in the GMP or Mayor's office. It explains, in some way, why I am critical of the Senior Management Teams.
  3. Large crowds of youths “coughed and spat” at frontline emergency workers dealing with a serious incident on Saturday night, a police officer has claimed. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/west-yorkshire-police-emergency-responders-spit-cough-a9417051.html%3famp
  4. A DRUNKEN man coughed and spat towards a police officer after saying he would give her Covid-19. https://www.lancashiretelegraph.co.uk/news/18336227.thug-spat-police-sergeant-told-give-covid-19/
  5. Boots has made legal history by launching a private prosecution against a career criminal who police released despite him being caught shoplifting red-handed. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8118661/amp/Boots-launches-landmark-legal-battle-shoplifter-police-let-off.html How was this a civil matter?
  6. Priti Patel demanded police chiefs slash crimeand deliver safer streets in exchange for more officers today as she said neither she nor the public would accept any 'excuses'. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8046391/No-excuses-Priti-Patel-tells-police-cut-crime-exchange-20-000-officers.html#article-8046391 Does Patel not realise that the 20,000 are not extra officers but simply replacing the 20,000 lost to cuts which were made by her own Government?
  7. There are many different police forces, officers, police staff, Council Officers, wardens, marshals, hospital security, prison officers, highway officers, inspectors, court officers, security officers, animal control etc. Is it time for the UK to adapt more to the needs of 21st Century public safety and have more police forces/‘police officers’ ... as in swear in court officers to be able to arrest escaping prisoners and violent persons, swear in hospital officers - to become a regional or national hospital Force to better safeguard people. Or a Mental Health police service, dealing with just those cases (and security at MH hospitals) It could be (dare I say it) similar to the US forces, where there are much more varied and clearly defined agencies, who may not exclusively deal with problem X, but is trained, geared and ready to do so (e.g. NYC has a Sanitation Police Force!) Same with local wardens, marshals etc, who deal with ASB, littering etc, who would benefit much more in being something akin to European ‘urban/local police’. There are now many uniformed persons, with varying degrees of power, that although there could be many arguments against it ... at least a bit more standardisation for the public’s sake and support for the people who deal with crime and public safety, could be achieved. Examples USA - Highway Patrol Italy - polizia local / urban - traffic control, ASB crimes, litter Nigeria - Federal Road Safety Corps (sort of slightly corrupt DVSA Officers with arrest powers) US - Hospital, school and Mental Health police. Faults they have, but they seem to all have police/Constable powers and better understood role than say e.g. bylaw enforcement officers. Thoughts?
  8. A number of police officers have been told to stay at home and self-isolate while a woman being held in custody is tested for coronavirus. https://www.google.com/amp/s/news.sky.com/story/amp/coronavirus-fears-over-woman-in-custody-as-police-officers-self-isolate-11937967
  9. A BREXIT Day terror attack was reportedly foiled after police confirmed dissident republicans "attached an explosive device" to a vehicle. https://www.express.co.uk/news/uk/1238719/Brexit-terror-attack-latest-northern-ireland-bomb-lorry-found-ferry-Scotland-police
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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/

  14. A police officer who shocked colleagues when she used a “derogatory and extremely offensive” racist term at work has been handed a final written warning. https://www.bristolpost.co.uk/news/bristol-news/avon-somerset-police-officer-given-3648568 Similarities with the case below, 1 eventually leading to dismissal the other to a final warning. https://police.community/topic/332718-dont-let-racist-language-officer-back-to-work-or-give-her-appeals-cash-winnings-force-pleads/
  15. The official report into the police shooting of a man whose death sparked the 2011 riots is facing a new challenge from human rights investigators who say a virtual model of the shooting shows its main conclusion is wrong https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2019/dec/05/mark-duggan-shooting-report-challenged-by-human-rights-groups
  16. A cop killer who mowed down a police officer is back behind the wheel while banned from driving. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/police-killer-who-mowed-down-19116373.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!
  19. 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.
  20. 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?
  21. A police officer has been charged with murdering former footballer Dalian Atkinson, who collapsed and later died after being Tasered in 2016 https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7659965/Police-officer-charged-death-ex-footballer-Dalian-Atkinson.html

    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.
  23. https://www.manchestereveningnews.co.uk/news/greater-manchester-news/drifting-investigations-lost-safeguarding-cases-17128542 GMP are holding an urgent investigation into Computer failures creating a massive backlog of Crime reports and outstanding tasks.

    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?
  25. 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?
