  1. Campaign means no hiding place for those who abuse the uniform. Reporting: Campaign to highlight abuse by officers and staff Date - 28th March 2019 By - Nick Hudson - Police Oracle 3 Comments Abusive officers face no hiding place in an ultimate morality test from an all-seeing public. West Yorkshire Police has launched an awareness campaign, urging the reporting of police employees who “misuse their position of trust”. The force is proactively encouraging members of the public to report "any incident" that concerns them. The drive is part of the force’s commitment to providing the highest standards of service to the communities of West Yorkshire and follows an internal campaign and work with key partner agencies to raise awareness of abuse of position for a sexual purpose, and what can and should be reported. Detective Chief Superintendent Oz Khan, head of force’s professional standards directorate, said: “Police employees occupy a position of trust and it is vital that any abuse of position by a police officer or staff member is investigated “It does not matter whether someone has come into contact with the police as a victim, witness or suspect for an offence, they should expect any officer or staff member that they come into contact with to act professionally and in line with the code of ethics.” The National Police Chief’s Council set out a strategy in October 2017 for addressing the issue of officers and staff who abuse their position for a sexual purpose. Since then, the West Yorkshire force has run an internal awareness campaign – including mandatory training for all officers and staff – and also held a conference in July last year which was attended by more than 100 representatives from partner organisations. “This is not an issue that is unique to West Yorkshire and out of the thousands of people who work for the police, we are talking about a very small number of individuals who would ever overstep professional boundaries and form inappropriate personal relationships with people they meet as a result of their work,” added DCS Khan. “Victims of abuse of position may not always see themselves as a victim and we need anyone with concerns about a police employee’s conduct to report it to us so that we can ensure it is investigated and, if appropriate, that the police officer or staff member’s employment is terminated. “We know people may have concerns about contacting the police to report an issue with the police but I would like to reassure them that we have specialist officers who are dedicated to conducting these kind of investigations and their report will be dealt with sensitively.” The force said there are also options available to report incidents to independent charity Crimestoppers or the Independent Office for Police Conduct.” Last year, two West Yorkshire Police employees faced gross misconduct hearings in relation to abuse of position for a sexual purpose. The first was a PC who started sending inappropriate and unprofessional messages via Snapchat to a 14-year-old girl who he met while attending at a children’s home conducting missing person enquiries. The officer was dismissed without notice. The second was a special constable who contacted a woman on social media who he had met due to her being a witness in an ongoing criminal investigation. He went on to develop a relationship with her, culminating in sexual intercourse. He resigned from the force but a misconduct hearing was held which found he would have been dismissed without notice if he had still been a serving officer. Both officers’ details are now held on the national College of Policing’s barred list which prevents them from gaining employment with any force in England and Wales. View On Police oracle

  3. An elderly woman who was knocked to the ground during a drug arrest has won a decade-long legal battle against West Yorkshire Police. Elizabeth Robinson was injured after being trapped under two "sturdily built" police officers and a suspected drug dealer in Huddersfield in 2008. Mrs Robinson, who was 76 at the time, argued that the police had breached their duty of care towards her. The Supreme Court said the force is now liable to pay her damages. Mrs Robinson, who is now 86, was described in court as "relatively frail" at the time of the incident. In a written judgement, Supreme Court judge Lord Robert Reed said Mrs Robinson was walking on Kirkgate when she was caught up in a tussle to arrest a man who had been seen dealing drugs in a park. The men knocked into her and they "all fell to the ground with Mrs Robinson underneath", Lord Reed said. It was found that the officers involved "had acted negligently" as they could have chosen a safer opportunity to attempt to arrest a man who was at risk of attempting to escape. Mrs Robinson's solicitor, Helen Grieves, described it as a "very significant" judgment. West Yorkshire Police has been contacted for comment. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-leeds-42988972
  4. Hey all, So West Yorkshire Police have announced that they will be hosting their new recruitment for Police Officers from 11th September to the 23rd September, is anyone thinking of applying?
  5. A damning report into the suspected wrongful conviction of a former West Yorkshire police officer for assaulting a teenager in custody has been described by a senior official as the most “explosive” he has seen in nearly 30 years. The Operation Lamp dossier into the case of Danny Major, who was convicted in 2006 for the assault at a Leeds police station, could now see West Yorkshire Police made subject to a criminal inquiry.

    Questions around Transferring

    Hi Guys, I'll try and keep this short and concise; I've been a special with WYP for around 4 months, however I'd also applied to Universities this year, and didn't get into my first choice (which is in West Yorkshire). On to the point, I got accepted into a Uni at Leicester, and as part of the uni-course they like you to become a special. Seeing as I am already one, what would the process for transferring from WYP to Leicestershire Police be like? I didn't ask this in the Leicestershire forum as it seems a bit dead, and this is more of a general question as Leicestershire don't seem to have any information at all on their website concerning transfers (please correct me If I'm wrong!). I'm not IPS, and I haven't done a great deal of competencies toward it, however as I said I have been attested 3-4 months now, so it's not like I'm still in training. I realise WYP probably aren't going to be too happy about me leaving so soon, but life just does this sometimes! Apologies for rambling, I've actually just come off a late shift so a little tired, my main question is-- how complicated would a transfer be, is it even possible at my stage, and would I need an interview etc again (even though I literally just came off training not so long ago). I understand I'll probably have to do some training, but I'm not so much looking at the finer details just how difficult the whole process might be, or whether it would be easier for me to 're-join'? If that's even possible, seems a bit odd attesting twice but there you go! Appreciate any help or guidance.

  9. Four arrested as police seize drugs worth £1.2 million   Four people have been arrested as police seized more than a million pounds of drugs in a raid in Dewsbury, West Yorkshire     Police stopped the car on Old Bank Road.

  10. Another fantastic video by West Yorkshire Police Federation to demonstrate that #cutshaveconsequences<p> Nick Smart - West Yorkshire Police FederationThe police service is at risk of becoming privatised unless politicians are made aware of the impact of financial reductions, a staff association has warned.West Yorkshire Police Federation Chairman Nick Smart (pictured) spoke out as his organisation launched its strand of the Cuts Have Consequences campaign, and he led members to meet with MPs at parliament.Shadow Policing Minister Jack Dromey and Liberal Democrat Home Affairs Committee member Julian Hibbert were due to meet the Fed today (February 3). Explaining what the purpose of the public campaign is, Mr Smart said: "If you are happy to have a private police service, if you are happy to have private companies protecting you and your families, if you are happy to have no control or say in your services, then do nothing. "But, if you are not happy then only you can change what is happening. Take control of the future. Let politicians of all parties – in person, in writing, by email, on social media - know how you feel on policing."At the meeting, Mr Smart was due to tell the politicians of fears for the future of the force - which faces a £163 million reduction in its operating budget.In addition to social media coverage, West Yorkshire's campaign will also feature adverts designed to highlight how budget reductions will alter the shape of neighbourhood policing and hamper the ability to deal with new threats. "We face the pressures of terrorism, child sexual exploitation, safeguarding and vulnerability issues, cyber crime as well as traditional crimes and duties officers have to perform," Mr Smart added.“Officers are not fools and neither are the public. Political rhetoric about reducing bureaucracy, new IT, new powers have not reduced demand sufficiently, if at all.“You still need boots on the ground if you want to fight crime and keep the public safe. "The Fed has also produced a video on the topic, which can be seen below:<iframe src="//player.vimeo.com/video/117842169" width="500" height="300" frameborder="0" webkitallowfullscreen mozallowfullscreen allowfullscreen></iframe>
