  1. When would you use a section 18(5) their presence being necessary at the suspects address? Could anyone give me some real world scenarios where it was necessary in day to day policing? Many thanks, James

    SEARCH Assessment

    Since applying for the role of a Police Constable with Essex Police in March 2020, I've been checking emails every day for updates and to keep an eye out for any announcements regarding my application. I recently took part in the telephone briefing in preparation to attend the SEARCH Assessment on 8th April 2020. Following from the Governments announcements of lockdown and introductions of social distancing as a result of COVID-19, I was very disappointed, but understood the reasons, to find out that my SEARCH assessment day had been cancelled until further notice.

    Shortlisting & Briefing

    Today I received an update on my application to confirm that I had been successful at passing the shortlisting stage of my application. I was then invited to take part in a telephone briefing for the next stage of my application which would be the SEARCH Assessment day. I was very excited by this and felt that my application was moving at a good pace. The invite for the briefing was to take place on 2nd April 2020...so, I added it to my diary and started to conduct my own research into the SEARCH Assessment stage
  4. The Met has announced today that it is temporarily removing the London residency criteria for new PC recruits. If you want to join the Met as a PC and don't live in London, now is your chance - for a limited period of time only! You also do not have to have the CKP prior to starting your training either. More details here: http://news.met.police.uk/news/launch-of-time-limited-opportunity-for-non-londoners-to-join-the-met-330091?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=Subscription&utm_content=current_news
  5. Thought I would post a scenario to see if I can get some perspectives and thoughts. Okay, you’re a male officer working alone at a large hospital. You are called to a ward (non MH) due to a patient possibly having razor blades on them and being a self harmer. The patient has been admitted due to having chest problems. You attend the ward which is staffed by a number of nurses and clinical staff. The ward is locked and secure and it is the middle of the night so no visiting hours or access to the public. As you enter the ward you are directed to a room with around 6 beds in it wi

    SEARCH results.

    Hi guys, I did my SEARCH assessment centre with Northumbria Police on the 25th of January and we were told results would be in approximately a week after that date. We were given information that the final interviews are between the 5th of February and the 14th of February. How long did people wait for their results? Has anyone else who did the assessment on the same day for Northumbria heard anything yet? T
  7. Trying to work out the clarification here. Had to do a search with a couple of Regs this week, and I've got write it up for PDP as Property Search is one thing I'm missing. I'm trying to work out what powers we used to do the search. I can't find the guidelines, or specific powers. I don't think it's a S17 search as the person wasn't on the premises, it certainly wasn't a S18 as we weren't looking to arrest. I was considering MHA S135, but that doesn't work either. I was informed they had permission for a search, but other than that I'm kind of stumped (I should know this better with the
  8. The last 4 working days have felt like 4 working years, filled with endless refreshing of emails and irrational Google hunts as to how long for SEARCH results... This morning I got the call that I had been waiting eagerly for/dreading, I've passed the assessment centre! Ecstatic is not the word! Whilst I'm under no illusions that the final interview is far from a formality, I'm confident after my past experience was that it was a much less robotic and unfriendly assessment environment than the AC. I'm booked in for the interview next Friday morning, so it feels like the journey
  9. So today was the day I've been counting down for over a month. After meticulous preparation, I was still apprehensive that I would get caught out by something! Things started to go awry at about 0230 this morning when my darling son decided to scream the house down - and then continue to wake up shouting every hour until I got up at 0600. It's the first time he's done it in months and it's almost like he knew I needed my sleep! As for the Assessment Centre itself, obviously I can't go into too much detail about the content but I'm cautiously happy with how I performed. I can remembe

    0800. Meet up in local station with Sgt, the area drug DC, a uniformed PC, dog handler and three other specials. Get a briefing on the two search warrants we will be executing - there were supposed to be three but one has been postponed. 0900. Door answered and in we go. Mum and toddler are fine, laddo is spark out on the sofa. We wake him up. He is not really with it. The drug dog goes through without any particular indication so we begin searching. I find a wrap of cannabis between the DVD cases, which the mum claims. She is taken down to the station to receive a cannabis warning.
  11. So yesterday was the first stage of the process which involved travelling to the training school. Definitely a trip I hope I'll be making much more before 2017 is out! The Assessment Centre briefing was essentially what it said on the tin. If you're about to go for yours, the gist is that you hand in your relevant ID/qualification/eligibility documents to the Recruitment team, and then sit with your potential future coursemates in the canteen, making small talk until you are called through to book an assessment centre date and then directed to a lecture theatre where you are given a prese
  12. With the risk of other posts ending up off topic. I thought it maybe best to start a new one here about the controversial issue of stop and search. Now after reading I realise that to stop and search someone you need to have reasonable suspicion, I think we all could agree about that bit. Where were falling over ourselves is what amounts to reasonable suspicion. I posted two videos in one post where I believed just what was contained in the videos was an abuse of this power. We can only determine on what we see in the video's and what's being said. Not to determine with what we might
  13. Hi All, Im in the process of finally going through the recruitment process to join Hampshire Constabulary after 6 years of being a special. The final parts of of my SEARCH recruitment centre is being done at the TVP Training Centre in Sulhamstead, Ive been given a map but it doesnt help in the slightest and I've been told if you follow your satnav you get sent in to random parts of the establishment. Can anyone help me and advise me which is the best way to go in to get to the 'white house' reception. Thank you in advance
  14. A woman is taking the Met to court over her treatment during a search A charity worker wrongly identified as one of the London rioters today won £10,000 damages from the police after being made to reveal her “deformed” toes during a search. Janine David, 29, had been mistakenly named by an anonymous caller as having taken part in the looting of a sports shop in Tottenham in August 2011. She was arrested the following year and held for two hours, during which time she said she was traumatised by being made to take off her shoes. Miss David, of Hackney, has “not fully formed” toes and told

    Searching School Premises

    The Criminal Justice Act 1988, provides powers for a constable to enter and search school premises. Which of the following statements are correct? A constable may enter any school premises and search any person if there is reasonable grounds to believe they have possession of an article which has a blade or is sharply pointed. A constable may enter any school premises and search any person if there is reasonable grounds to suspect that they have possession of an article and search any premises for any offensive weapons. This power exists if the constable reasonably suspects one of the offen
