  1. As the topic title suggests….. What is your RPU operating model and what shift pattern do you work? For example we operate as a standalone “division” so to speak that has number of bases across the county that are aligned to the 5 response teams and work a 6 on 4 off pattern.
  2. Warwickshire’s Special Constabulary receive new dedicated roads policing car thanks to Police and Crime Commissioner grant Warwickshire’s Special Constabulary now have their own dedicated roads policing car thanks to a £35k grant from Police and Crime Commissioner Philip Seccombe’s Road Safety Fund. Special Constables are volunteers who work across a variety of policing teams, and when fully trained can do everything that a regular police officer does, including roads policing. The new car is a fully liveried police car, equipped with operational equipment including ANPR, breath test kit, tow bar, variable message system, cones, signage, auxiliary lighting and ‘stingers’ that are used strategically to stop vehicles that are considered a danger to other road users. The grant also includes training the Special Constabulary Roads Policing volunteers to use the latest TruCam speed detection devices and other equipment such as weigh scales so they can assist during operations by checking whether a vehicle may be overweight. Police and Crime Commissioner Philip Seccombe said “It is a great investment from the Road Safety Fund to support the Special Constabulary who do great work alongside regular officers to make Warwickshire’s roads safer for everyone. “This means that we will have an even greater coverage of our roads for roads policing. This additional police presence and visibility on the county’s road network will help to address driver behaviours through a mix of education and enforcement, as well as removing more dangerous drivers from our roads altogether. See the full article HERE Having read this article recently, I know that more and more forces have introduced dedicated Special Constables to their Roads Policing Units and wondered how many in fact had. I personally think it is fantastic to see Special Constables being recognised in various roles throughout the service as for many years we have overlooked their genuine desire to specialise in certain areas of policing and tended to retain them in Neighborhood Policing roles (not that this role is not important - we all know it is ) Those officers who have secured places on the specialist units, how have you been received generally? What training are your respective forces providing? Is there a formalised route you have to follow to become accredited? What driving permits do they provide you with? - How much training do they provide? You get the idea, let's have a discussion I have to say Warwickshire have certainly led the way for many years in regards to Special Constables working alongside their full time colleagues in Roads Policing and long may it continue, so over to you folks, let's hear about your experiences.

    GMP X Cars

    I've been thoroughly enjoying watching episodes of X cars from around 1997 on youtube, such as this: Quite incredible how different car crime is now, who remembers ringing? I haven't heard that term for years! The numbers of cars being stolen in Manchester at that time are utterly staggering. I guess modern immobilisers have slowly killed off kids nicking cars for a laugh. Love the patrol cars, Cavalier SRIs, Escort and Sierra Cosworths. Does any force drive anything remotely like that now?

    Standard Bike Course

    Two of our lads passed their Standard Response Motorcycle course today, a first for us in Kent, and wondering if across the UK? I'm aware there have been SC Solo's who had previously been regulars. In any case, massive congrats to the guys who worked really hard!

    Advanced Driving

    Hey guys and girls, Just wondering whether officers can take their standard driving course or advanced drivers course if they have speeding penalty points? Thanks XA84
  6. A SWAN was taken into police custody (sort of) by officers last week after it was seen running along a busy motorway The bird was spotted near junction 10 of the A1(M) for the A507 at Stotfold last Wednesday (March 9) trying to take off by using the road as a runway – much to the surprise of drivers who had to swerve to avoid it.
