    Anyone have any information on the police signalling stick? Who uses it, which force etc? Cheers.

    National uniform observations

    Been around the (South) of the country quite a lot over recent weeks and have made some observations on the dozens of different types of police officer uniforms. - Common things seem to be black t-shirts with high-visibility stab vests, is this some bizarre mix of wanting to be discreet and visible?! - Custodian helmets look fantastic and very recognisable as a warranted officer. - Shirts and ties seem to be minimally worn out and about, except London and Somerset, but look very professional - is public appearance less valued in some areas more than others? - Medal ribbons on stab vests (sort of plain ones, not with lots of pouches). - Male armed police officers in Windsor seem to like wearing all black, carry carbines and very tight t-shirts with baseball caps ... except Windsor Castle where peaked caps, ties and MP5s seem to be order of the day. Any reason for the difference? - Baseball caps look abysmal and should be confined to sport & tropical use only... - Some uniforms much more 'branded' with crests and force names etc than some which are much more generic. Is it time for a more standardised (dare I say it) uniform, but with clear force identity (similar to Armed Forces - same uniform, different insignia & badges etc)? (Bonus: Nigerian policeman on guard duty with rifle barrel buried in the dust whilst sitting on plastic chairs). What are your uniform observations over the years?
  4. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7586499/Police-chief-posted-Pronouns-Day-video-slammed-wasting-time.html I know that it is in the Mail but surely our Senior Command Officers should have something better to do. I live within the area and I have not spoken to anyone who has any support for the actions by the Deputy Chief Constable. Her officers are under staffed, under equipped, and poorly led. Officers do not deserved to be led by donkey's. I was also wonder how long Rainbow colouring has been part of official uniform epaulettes?

    Sussex Police Collar Numbers

    I came across a few Sussex police officers the other day - not in a position to chat with them - and they all had different letters on their collar numbers on them. I know that some forces issue them for Boroughs (e.g. the Met) or certain specialisms, but having a look around the internet, it appears that Sussex's are much more random. I noticed this also in the recent BBC programme Cuffs, but just assumed it was a made up thing for TV. Can someone explain them?

    Uniforms

    Hi all Hope you can help with a little general interest project I'm doing in my spare time to keep me busy. Apart from road traffic and anti-terror laws, is there any legislation that expressly requires a constable to be in uniform to exercise his/her powers? Thanks for any pointers you can give, and keep up the good work! Happy Christmas.

    Uniform and Eczema?

    For the past couple of months (ever since I've started wearing my fleece/coat over winter) I've been having problems with eczema on my torso and back. The combination of sweating and the stab vest being tight to my body have caused red patches to flare up and it's really irritating. Unfortunately it's a choice of being too hot or too cold, I can't go on foot patrol in just a wicking shirt and vest. Our force usually wear fleeces under stab vests, I was thinking of starting to wear my fleece over my stab vest and seeing if that helps my skin breath a little better, although I will look the odd one out as no one wears it like this! I was wondering if anyone has had similar problems with eczema or knows of any solutions?

    Best Patrol Bag?

    Hello guys, About to start my PC training next month and just wondering what ideas people have for a patrol bag? Not too expensive, one to have that is durable but good value for money. I will be intending to use it during training to fit all my books, lunch etc generally day to day stuff, and then using it once training has finished and onto the real thing! Any suggestions, or previous experience with any would be great.

    Winter/Cold weather kit

    It's a bit chilly out there tonight (-1 at the moment...), so what do you have to keep away the cold? What recommendations do you have? Base layers? Currently have Primark's finest thermal base layer long johns and various base layer tops (merino and others) Gloves? Issued leather gloves with a wool lining (Met gloves). Scarf/Gaiter? Buff thingy-ma-gig and have just bought a cheapy fleece equivalent off of eBay for the grand total of £1. Any bargains out there?
  10. Hi Guys, due to start my special training in February was wondering if anyone knows what kit they Issue out and what I would need to get in preparation for training. Although I am aware boots need to be purchased by myself is there anything else I would need Frosty
  11. Here's an interesting link that I came across the other day that compares the prices of all uniform issued to forces. https://www.police.uk/procurement/baton/ I must say that some of the new prices definitely reflect the quality. The £25 baton for example..

    Kent Police Issued Uniform

    As someone has already done in another forum, I suppose I should do some grown up stuff. Can someone post the issued kit and uniform lists for Regs and Specials for KPS?

    Uniform

    Haven't seen Merseyside Police wear these type of combat trousers. Does anyone know why they are wearing them and what type they are ?
  14. Force's in England and Wales are going to a 'national uniform' so I have heard, us in Lancs have received new caps, fleeces and tshirts, the fleece's are identical to those GMP are now issuing, anyone else know of any uniform that is changing? Anyone know which force's haven't agreed to sign up to this, if any? (probs the Met)

  16. Anyone happen to know what kit we get issued with also if we get a Bag or should we invest in one. this is for Special constables by the way.
  17. Please bear with me, this is my last updated version, it is a little out but it gives you a good idea until I get the current updated one online PCW
  18. Evening folks, Hopefully going to be transferring over to trackside if I am successful with my interview etc. I was just wondering what kit are BTP SC issued with from the start? Thanks in advance.
  19. Specials are to no longer have the crown on their epaulettes in South Yorkshire to save that extra few pence. now i see the logic in this but i personally have 2 views and im sure regulars will certainly have views. View 1 - I arrested a polish guy who spoke no English, it was a nasty arrest and it ended up in A and E. this guy had a really b-line for me and we couldn't understand why, i was with 2 regulars. when we finally got an interpretor and he was asked why he said it was because i was in charge and the other two officers were doing what i said. when told we were all the same rank he said we were lying because i have a crown! ( I got a lot of spit because of the crown that day!). View 2 - i personally like reg's knowing im a special (not Joe public) because i need there help and dont want to put them at risk. The crown was obvious now they need to looks at the number to tell. (i know its still possible but not as obvious) Yes it saves money in the long run, but what do you think?

    Trousers

    Hi all, Wondering if anyone can recommend a decent pair or cargo style trousers in black which would be suitable for use on duty. The type that dog handlers/AFOs tend to wear. I'm doing a lot of rural work and finding that my regular uniform trousers are getting wrecked. The trouble is the one's i'm finding aren't properly black and are just dark grey colour. Any ideas?
  21. As per the subject header really, can anybody advise what uniform is issued as standard to a new PC / SC?

    Stab vest - Uniform fitting

    So I had my uniform fitting which was a lot of fun (although I looked like a complete child in everything). When I tried the armour, it stopped just above my belly button, and the guy said its fine, however I am concerned about the inch that is not protected. (forgot to mention this, too distracted in the whole kit!) Where does your vest stop to, and should I consider asking for a different size?

    Washing leg restraints.

    Does anyone know whether fast wraps are machine washable? Used mine the other night and I'm told they are currently in an evidence bag covered in blood and spit. Is it worth just getting replacements or can the velcro go in the wash?
  25. This may seem like an odd query, but having moved from a wonderful easy care uniform which needed no ironing what so ever to one which comprises of wool trousers and horrible shirts, I have a question. How many forces still enforce shirt sleeve order? How many forces require that ties are worn with S/S order? For example, September to April long sleeves with tie, April to September short sleeves no tie. Its a somewhat antiquated concept to me.
