    Specials interview (Sussex Police)

    Hi, I have recently applied for the role of Special Constable with Sussex Police. I passed the various online "tests", and was asked to submit an online "CV". I was then, shortly afterwards, invited to book myself in for an interview on the 2nd of December. The only information I have on this interview is that it is to be on the Sussex Police code of ethics, and I was just hoping someone could offer any insight as to what form the questions are likely to take? I've been busy memorising the code of ethics etc, and also thinking of examples from my past that "cover" the various "codes", but if anyone has any idea as to how they're likely to "test" me on this, I'd be hugely appreciative. Secondly, I haven't heard anything about doing any written tests etc so far. I know that I will have to submit a medical questionnaire and vetting form, upon successfully passing the interview. Can anyone offer any insight as to what comes next after these? Thanks everybody, Jay.
  8. Fury over Sussex police anti-rape poster as campaigners claim the message suggests 'women are responsible' for becoming victims Sussex Police poster features two young women taking a selfie The message urges female friends to 'stick together' on a night out Campaigners say police should be targeting potential rapists instead But police say they have an obligation to urge women to minimise risks A police force has been slammed by anti-rape groups for publishing a poster which appears to blame women for allowing their friends to be attacked on nights out. Campaigners have criticised the 'irresponsible' message in the Sussex Police poster arguing it implies that victims are to blame for getting raped. But police argue the poster was part of a wider campaign and that they would be failing in their duty if they did not urge potential victims to take steps to minimise risks. Anti-rape campaigners have criticised the message in this Sussex Police poster arguing it implies that victims are to blame for getting raped The poster features a picture of two young women taking a selfie and urges females to stick together to avoid sexual assault. The text reads: 'Which of your mates is most vulnerable on a night out? The one you leave behind. 'Many sexual assaults could be prevented. Stick together and don't let your friend leave with a stranger or go off on their own.' But campaigners have slammed the message saying the police should be targeting potential rapists instead of suggesting women are to blame in some rape cases. Sarah Green, acting director of The End Violence Against Women Coalition, said she found the poster 'infuriating'. She said 'We need to get beyond police campaigns giving instructions to women on how to behave to be safe. 'We need to talk to those who may perpetrate rape and deter them.' Fabia Bates, director of the Survivors' Network, said 'It is a shame as Sussex Police has made great strides to encourage people to report sexual violence and there is the possibility this could damage people's confidence. 'We are also concerned this suggests those other than the perpetrator are responsible. 'We are here to support anyone who has been the victim and will not judge anyone - it is never the victim's fault.' She was also concerned the poster spoke to only a 'small proportion of society'. Campaign: The posters are due to be put up in pub and club toilets as well as bus stops in Brighton (pictured) as well as other areas of Sussex A pair of police officers watch on as University students gather on the street outside a bar in Brighton Daisy Cooper, Liberal Democrat parliamentary candidate for Mid Sussex, called for the police to withdraw the poster. 'Victim blaming is a universal phenomenon. It appears we are taking a step backwards' she said. The poster is part of a campaign to prevent rape and will be put up in pub and club toilets and at bus stops. A police spokesman said it was part of a campaign which, over the summer holiday season, will see club security staff and taxi drivers receive 'special coaching on how to spot vulnerable victims'. Chief Inspector Katy Woolford said the campaign followed research into ways to help vulnerable or at-risk people. Chief Inspector Katy Woolford said the police had a responsibility to advise potential victims on how to minimise risks 'Rape is never a victim's fault, but as with all crimes we can reduce the number of victims in several ways. 'We would be failing in our response if, as with any other crime, we did not recognise that there are victims and urge them to take steps to minimise risks and help safeguard others from becoming victims. 'It is vital to be aware of vulnerability so that steps can be taken to guard against it. 'Friends and bystanders can play a key role in this, learning to recognise where their intervention may prevent a crime taking place.' People were quick to comment on social media today. A Brighton man calling himself 'Maxwell's Ghost' wrote online: 'The posters are about reducing the risk of becoming a victim, just like any other crime poster such as the ones which tell you not to leave Christmas presents on display in your home or leave windows open in summer. 'Sadly, it's true that lone women are at risk from weirdos as are lone males under the age of 25 who are more likely to become the victims of serious violent assault than any other group. 'My wife used to cycle home after a late shift at the hospital, but stopped when a man shoved her off her bike in Edward Street and terrified her. 'She no longer cycles or uses public transport late at night. Sadly there are loons everywhere. 'Perhaps the poster should just say: Watch out, watch out there's a nutter about.' It is not the first time that a police force have been criticised for publishing posters that suggest women may be to blame for being attacked. In 2012 Hampshire Police published a poster as part of an underage drinking campaign which showed a woman being pinned down by an attacker and carried the message 'Her mum bought her the cider'. Also that year West Mercia Police were forced to apologise for posters for its Safe Night Out initiative suggested rape victims were to blame if they were drunk. One poster pictured a smiling woman above another photo of her lying barefoot and apparently unconscious with her dress riding up her thighs. In 2012 West Mercia Police were forced to apologise for posters for its Safe Night Out initiative suggesting rape victims were to blame if they were drunk Manchester Police were praised by anti-rape groups for their 2014 Christmas anti-rape campaign which carried the strapline: 'Drinking is not a Crime. Rape is' The warning reads: ‘Don’t let a night full of promise turn into a morning full of regrets.’ Beneath the woman’s prostrate figure, the poster states: ‘Don’t leave yourself more vulnerable to regretful sex or even rape. Drink sensibly and get home safely.’ A second poster aimed at men also sparked fury, for saying they ‘could’ be breaking the law and arrested if someone hasn’t given their consent for sex or touching. By Comparison Greater Manchester Police were praised by anti-rape groups for their 2014 Christmas anti-rape campaign which carried the strapline: 'Drinking is not a Crime. Rape is'.

  9. http://www.itv.com/news/meridian/update/2015-02-16/police-officer-told-to-removed-union-flag-badge-from-uniform/ The press release from UK Cop Humour; https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0B9RTYhRoubfdWTNBYldqRkFKYWs&usp=sharing So, it appears that there are issues in Sussex and North Wales regarding the wearing of these thin blue line union flag patches. Any issues in other forces to report?
  10. Victims should report crime online to help cut the number of 999 calls, the Home Secretary declared yesterday. Theresa May said using the internet would save police money and free up officers for frontline work. Already being tested at two forces, the scheme would cover non-emergency cases such as criminal damage and minor theft. Campaigners warned however that online reporting would further reduce face-to-face contact between police and public at a time when many local stations have closed. There are also fears it might give officers an excuse not to visit crime scenes or even ignore offences entirely. The Home Office stressed that victims of serious crimes, including rape, burglary and assault, should still dial 999. Mrs May said: ‘The growth in the internet has transformed other services – from shopping to banking – and it is right to give victims and witnesses greater choice over how they report issues to the police.’ She said the measure could cut police costs by £3.7million and free up an estimated 180,000 officer hours a year – potentially putting more bobbies on the beat. The Home Office, which is working on a prototype with the Surrey and Sussex police forces, says the scheme will go nationwide within months. Some forces already allow victims to report offences via the web but this initiative would create a one-size-fits-all system for England and Wales. Mrs May insisted victims of crimes such as burglaries and rapes should still call 999, but one force which has developed its own online service includes stalking, domestic abuse and sex offences in its system Ministers have not yet drawn up a definitive list of offences suitable for reporting online. The online crime reports would be studied by police staff who would decide how to respond. Before the 101 police number was launched – also to reduce 999 calls – research revealed that 80 per cent of emergency calls did not need an urgent response. But in just 12 months more than a million 101 callers failed to get through and many were left hanging on for more than an hour. David Green, director of the Civitas think-tank, said: ‘The problem with dealing with a screen rather than talking to a person is that it depersonalises the experience. ‘It feels like you are a crime statistic instead of asking the police to act in defence of the public. ‘At a time when confidence in the police is falling, it would be better if the police were advised to maximise their contact with the public and not to go in search of devices which mean they have as little contact as possible, even if it does save money.’ But Peter Cuthbertson, of the Centre for Crime Prevention think-tank, said: ‘New measures to encourage people to report crimes are very welcome. ‘Sometimes people will feel more comfortable contacting police in this way, especially if they can do so anonymously.’ But campaigners fear the move could give police an excuse to not attend crime scenes themselves, or to ignore call-outs entirely. And Mark Castle, of the charity Victim Support, said: ‘Giving victims more choice and control over their journey through the criminal justice system is something we would of course welcome.’ Policing Minister Mike Penning said: ‘Smartphones, tablets and internet devices are opening up new opportunities for the way people contact the police and forces need to be ready.’ In the past three years, an estimated 264 police station counters have closed – one in five of the national total.

Use Tor browser so no criminal can find out who grassed them up (Tor is very slow) Thirty minutes later a well prepared letter sent off to Police. T May I still have no confidence in you!

  11. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2846498/Police-officers-park-double-yellow-lines-shopping-burgers-Tesco.html We can all be forgiven for craving a bite to eat from time-to-time at work. But for two police officers the urge proved too much - as they were photographed parking their car on double-yellow lines before one nipped into a Tesco Express. The pair were left red-faced when a member of the public snapped the officer returning to the vehicle armed with what appeared to be a pack of burgers from the store. Public perception boys...
