This incident was only resolved safely because the suspect clearly didn’t want to shoot them. It’s just dumb luck, nothing more. 

Something must change and quick. Any officer expected to be out on the front line must be properly equipped.

Agreed. Taser and sidearm for everyone. I don't care about public perception, I care about officer safety and ability to respond to incidents accordingly.

Another ‘Isolated incident’ what are the chances.

In no other occupation would you be placed at such risk without adequate means to defend yourself. Flicks are only about £400 each

About us

Police Community was originally founded in 2014 by two serving Police Officers.

In 2016 it was incorporated as a limited company called RAW Digital Media Limited and then purchased 3 other forums; Police Specials, UK Police Online and Police UK to form the largest policing discussion forum network in the UK. In 2019 the decision was taken to merge all four forums into this main form of www.police.community
