  1. Hi everyone and many thanks for letting me join this forum. I have been away from front line Policing for nearly 3 years and in Feb 2018 and after a meeting with the SMP he recommended Medical Retirement due to my complex issues around PTSD. HR and the DCC for my force also agreed this and i retire from my force on the 18th June 2018. I am 48 years of age and have 20 years and 1 month of service. But what happens now? Any help would be really appreciated. Many thanks - Dazzlar
  2. Hi all I am looking for some good retirement gift ideas? Does anyone have any idea of what would be a good gift, or where I can order something from? I would like to get an old wooden baton mounted award or something but have bo idea where i could get one? Any help would be great!
  3. I'm a cop with 22yrs service so I'm apparently in this tapering bracket until 2018. I've had 3 lots of surgery on my back now and lost a number of discs so made the decision to apply for a medical so submitted the forms for a H1. Does anyone have any idea what to expect on the pension front - I've had numerous folk guessing but i just haven't got a clue. Is there an automatic enhancement in pension years or do I go with what I have ? I've read about percentage of disability and upper tiers but none of it makes a great deal of sense - I'm up with the SME next week so wouldn't mind knowing what would eventually be on offer. Cheers
  4. About 400 police officers who were forced to retire have lost their claim for age discrimination at a tribunal. Many of those at forces across the country with more than 30 years service were forced to step down under the "A19" regulations. The employment appeals tribunal upheld an earlier appeal by police forces. Officers in Nottinghamshire, West Midlands, Devon and Cornwall, North Wales and South Wales could now take the case to the High Court. Nigel Rabbitts, of the Devon and Cornwall Federation, said it was a "blow" to those involved. The officers had won an earlier judgement, prompting fears that police forces across England and Wales could be forced to pay millions of pounds in compensation. Invoking the A19 rule saved the forces more than £66m in wages, the BBC found last year. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-33440892

    Met Police officer Robert Brown retires after 47 years PC Robert Brown's colleagues formed a guard of honour for him A man hailed as the country's longest serving police officer is retiring after 47 years on the force. PC Robert Brown, known as Bob, joined the Met as a 19-year-old cadet in 1968. He was involved in the Carlos the Jackal and Baader-Meinhoff probes and spent three days on duty during the 1981 Brixton Riots. He finishes his career in Croydon Borough, where he was born, with colleagues forming a guard of honour for his final shift. I've always been a PC. Not everyone can be a Commander” Truncheon and whistle Harold Wilson was prime minster when PC Brown signed up as a trainee police constable a day after his 19th birthday on 17 February, 1969. Equipped at first with just a wooden truncheon and whistle he spent his first 15 years working in Camden Borough. He served at stations in Harrow Road, Norbury, Addington and Sutton, before joining Croydon borough in the late nineties, where he has remained since. PC Robert Brown received the Queen's Police Medal in recognition of a career spanning six decades Speaking after his colleagues formed a guard of honour for him, he said: "I'm overwhelmed that everyone turned out today for this. "I have always wanted to serve and help people and that's been my ethos through my career. I wanted to help people. "I've always been a PC. Not everyone can be a Commander. I enjoyed what I was doing. "I will miss the people immensely but not the job. It's run its course for me." PC Brown has policed a number of high-profile incidents including the Brixton riot in 1981 Croydon Borough Commander Ch Supt Andy Tarrant said: "It is only fitting that Bob should complete his career in the area that he was born in. "An operational officer virtually to the end of his career, Bob will be missed by all his friends and colleagues." Policing moments PC Robert Brown was one of the first officers on the scene when 'Carlos the Jackal' shot the then-Marks and Spencer boss, Joseph Sieff in 1973. He supported the Met's Special Branch during the arrest of Astrid Prollin 1978, who was part of the notorious revolutionary terrorist group, theBaader-Meinhoff gang. In 1981, he spent almost 72 hours on duty during the Brixton riot. In 1994, he gave first aid to Sgt Derek Robertson who died after being stabbed responding to an armed robbery in New Addington. He has been on duty at nearly every Notting Hill Carnival, said the Met, and last Friday he received the Queen's Police Medal at Buckingham Palace in recognition of his long service. In his retirement, Bob is planning to move to Yorkshire to spend more time with his family in the area. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-31440187
  6. The Chief Constable of Wiltshire Police, Pat Geenty, has announced his intention to retire from his position with the Force. On Monday 2nd February 2015, Mr Geenty informed the Police and Crime Commissioner for Wiltshire and Swindon, Angus Macpherson, of his decision to retire in May of this year. Mr Geenty joined Wiltshire Police in July 2009 and was appointed substantive Chief Constable of the Force in May 2012. Pat Geenty, Chief Constable, said: "Policing has been a fundamental part of my life for the past 33 years so this has been an extremely difficult decision for me to make. "However, after considerable soul-searching, I feel confident that this is the right thing for me to do. "I am entirely certain that I am leaving the Force in capable hands and wish to reassure the public that there is a clear plan for the future of Wiltshire Police. Angus Macpherson, Police and Crime Commissioner for Wiltshire and Swindon, said: "Firstly, I would like to thank Mr Geenty for his hard work, professionalism and total commitment to his role as Chief Constable of Wiltshire Police. "While I am personally disappointed to be losing an exceptional officer and leader, I fully understand and respect his decision to retire. "I will now begin to consider the continuity plan for the Force to ensure that Wiltshire Police are able to maintain consistency in leadership. I will update further once I have made a decision." http://www.wiltshire.police.uk/news/1193-wiltshire-police-chief-constable-announces-retirement

    CV writing

    Does anyone have experience of a CV writing service for officers approaching retirement? I know the Met provide a guide but was wondering if anyone had used a professional service and what the experience was like? Thx
