  1. Hi. I am currently 5 months into training and recently undertaken PST course. As part of the course you need to complete a use of force role play scenario to gain a pass. You get 3 goes at the role play and need to show various signs to gain that pass. I struggle with role play and haven't been used to conflict but when have had dealt with it okay in normal life. I am on the 3rd go and been told if don't pass this time will be made redundant. It is making me worry as got so far and have a family to provide for. Is this true? Thanks in advance.
  2. A John Lewis security guard lost his job after video showed him dragging a customer out of a shop by his neck. https://metro.co.uk/2019/08/26/john-lewis-security-guard-drags-new-dad-neck-shops-baby-clothes-10632125/ Even if he was using abusive and threatening language (which he says he wasn't) presumably dragging him out of the store by the neck is a complete no no? Doesn't seem like a proportionate use of force? Plus shouldn't the guard be carrying out a citizen's arrest and retaining him rather than dragging him out of the store if he's done something illegal??? T
  3. Metropolitan Police officers are four times more likely to use force against black people compared with the white population, new figures suggest. The Met used force 62,000 times in 2017-18 with more than a third of incidents involving black people. Techniques such as verbal instructions and using firearms were recorded. The Met Police said: "The proportionate use of force is essential in some circumstances to protect the public and often themselves from violence." Shadow home secretary Diane Abbott said the "disproportionate use of force is discriminatory".
  4. A security guard has been arrested on suspicion of manslaughter after an alleged shoplifter he tackled was fatally injured by bottles he was carrying. The 30-year-old suffered "significant injury" and a cardiac arrest in the altercation in The Shires car park in Trowbridge on Thursday afternoon. He was treated by paramedics but died at the scene, police said. The 20-year-old security guard, from Trowbridge, was arrested shortly after. Det Ch Insp Jeremy Carter said: "He tackled the suspected shoplifter causing a number of glass bottles he was concealing to smash. "Th
  5. Hello all once again. I've got another question that I have to ask, then I'll stop pestering you all for today :-) I know that self defence is taught and offered to all officers, but when it comes to applying it in reality, is there a limit as to what you should or shouldn't do (at the risk of being sued for assault etc). In my story, an officer has his basic defence training, but he's also skilled in Krav Maga. He only ever uses KM reluctantly but in his situation, it's necessary (he's dealing with an extremely dangerous 'junkie' that's coming at him and his colleague with a knife. A ma
  6. More than 400 children have had tasers drawn on them by police in England and Wales in 2013, figures obtained by the BBC show. The Home Office Taser database, seen by BBC Radio 5 live, shows a 38% increase on 2012 in the number of children who had a taser aimed at them. Tasers were fired 37 times at 10 to 17-year-olds. Ex-Home Secretary David Blunkett, who introduced Tasers, called for a review. The Home Office said Theresa May has asked for a review of Taser usage. The figures obtained through a Freedom of Information request show the youngest person to have a Taser aimed at them was 1
  7. A man who was sprayed in the face with CS gas by police officers has been awarded a £21,000 compensation pay-out. Essex Police agreed the out-of-court settlement to Alan Lethbridge but has not apologised. Mr Lethbridge, 34, of Romford, said he has had mental health problems since being sprayed during his arrest in Brentwood High Street in 2009. The former builder said he hoped to "rebuild his life" with the money and work again. Mr Lethbridge bought a van with part of his compensation money and is about to return to work, as a delivery driver, for the first time since his arres
