Not going down well with the public , dishing out fines and cops breaking the lockdown rules themselves ,cant have one rule for cops taking the P a little bit.

Why?!  Just why would you do it? 

I know times change, and it's been fifteen years since I retired, but with the closure of canteens, and the fact that Officers still have to Parade on together, travel in vehicles together, deal with

A handy reminder on the do's and don'ts  as well as a swift closure to the story.

What on Earth was going through their minds. I mean, how many of them were there and not a brain cell between them?

Some commenters on social media have said the police are allowed to eat on a carrier, so why not a cafe? Thoughts?

I know times change, and it's been fifteen years since I retired, but with the closure of canteens, and the fact that Officers still have to Parade on together, travel in vehicles together, deal with incidents together, is it too much for the General Public to realise that Officers are already putting their health in jeopardy, what difference does 20 minutes in a cafe make... The fact that the Media enjoys stirring up the Police haters at times like this, and the Bosses break into a sweat and side with the snowflakes instead of supporting their Officers doesnt bode well for the future.

What are you going to do then? Stand at the door to the briefing room and hand out covid tickets to officers as they leave it?

I have to say, yes, we work in close proximity all the time as it's an unavoidable part of the job, but they must be incredibly naive if they didn't expect someone to make an issue of it. People can't wait to see cops put a foot wrong.

No. Because that’s not the Legislation.

 

[EDIT]: For the record, I have not and will not issue a ‘Covid ticket’ to anyone.
