South Yorkshire Police said the officer died at the scene and the woman, who was a passenger in the second vehicle, died in hospital. The collision happened at about 20:15 GMT near to Coisley Hill.

    A Little Bit Of Traffic

    Your rank: PC Your planned duty hours: 1300-2200 This is just a duty report from a shift recently where I managed to get a little bit of traffic in, nothing special but just fancied writing it up. 1300 - Was working on my SOLAP as I am still a probationer however a grade one call comes in of a female self harming with a knife. All early shift crews are tied up so me and another officer jump in together and respond to it. A local officer was nearby and arrived before us as he had knowledge of the female. Upon arrival her friend had taken the blade from her and the female was just sat

If not, see here:- https://www.policespecials.com/forum/index.php/topic/150876-mp-slams-scandal-of-special-convicted-of-dangerous-driving/#entry2683796 I see the media is reporting that his case is being raised at various levels of government, including with the Director of Public Prosecutions. My question is, do you know of anything being done to help him and

  9. The owner of a luxury car hire firm has described his dismay after one of his most expensive vehicles was totalled in Luton on Sunday. Police were called to Selbourne Road at 7pm and officers arrived to find that a £210,000 Ferrari Italia 458 had crashed through a wall and was somehow wedged underneath a private hire car. Remarkably no-one was injured in the collision. At the time of the incident the supercar was on loan from Shoreham-On-Sea firm Prestige Lifestyle for £850 a day. The 29-year-old man, who has not been named, who rented the vehicle told the company that it was to be used in

    Blog: Drive to Arrive

    ‘Any available traffic unit for a likely to prove RTC?’ came the message over the radio. Likely to prove means someone is seriously hurt, and could lose their life in a road traffic collision (RTC). I activate my blue lights and sirens and make my way to the scene which could be anywhere in Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, or Hertfordshire. What is involved? Who is hurt? Is it just one injury or are there more? What other units are available to support? Just a few of the many things that flash through my mind. Having fought my way through the traffic I arrive at scene and realise I am first here.

He has two students with tutors who are with assessors, four in custody on prisoner observation (including two on "poo watch" - some people get all the best jobs), so I team up with a chap I've worked with before and we head down to his location for a brew. The sarge there breaks the good news to us that the Chief Constable is visiting the nick later so it would be a good thing if we are out doing stuff and not making

A motorist who smashed head-on into an elderly couple escaped prosecution despite damning video evidence - because an investigating officer went off sick By Emma Lazenby BT.com An angry pensioner has released footage of a dangerous driver crashing into him and his wife head-on after police failed to file paperwork due to sickness. Colin Kay and his wife Krysia, both 72, were involved in the crash in Great Eccleston, near Preston. The motorist pulled in front of Mr Kay as he travelled at 50mph, but has faced no charges.

    A POLAC?

    If the defintion of a POLAC is something along the lines of "a police vehicle being within visible sight of a RTC at the point the RTC begins" then which of the following are treated as a POLAC. 1) Police vehicle is parked across entrance of side turning blue lights flashing. MOPs vehicle on main road is following too close behind a HGV and intends to turn left into road which is now closed. MOP starts to turn, sees police vehicle brakes hard and collides with lamppost. 2) Same as 1 but instead of police vehicle there is just a Police ROAD CLOSED sign. 3) Standing by the Road Closed sign is

    Don't poke me, I'm driving!

    I've just come across these PDF's produced by IAM (Institute of Advanced Motorists) showing the effects of mobile phone, and particularly smart phone, usage whilst driving. There are some interesting comparisons to drink/drug driving in the documents, too.
