PNB sized book of acronyms

Recommended Posts


Hi all first time post here just started as a Special Constable. Was just wondering if anyone knows of a pocket notebook sized book that has some acronyms in it such as GOWISELY and PACE sections for reference. Had a search for something but google results aren't showing what I'm after! Any help would be much appreciated.

Welcome to the Job.

Apart from forking out for things like Police Pass, Blackstone's or Jane's books - which can be pricey and are often out of date by the time they hit the shops - there's nothing that immediately springs to mind apart from the PNLD PtP booklet:


Most officers I know tend to make their own based on what they get from training and experience.

Everytime I've been trained in new legislation, dealt with a novel offence or used an uncommon power I've used https://www.pnld.co.uk and http://www.legislation.gov.uk to do some research in my own time to get my head around it. If necessary, I print off a small idiot's guide to keep with my PNB until it becomes second nature then it gets binned.

Have a trawl through this and the linked forums as I know there are some really handy tips to be found.

(Maybe there's a gap in the market and some money to be earned - I call dibs)
