Be a professional witness, not a professional victim, unless you really need to go hands on and get involved. Clearly 999 is going to be the quickest way to get people to you, without PPE and an

What about a baton then? Other European & N. American nations often carry something (usually a firearm) off-duty. It just seems odd that UK police staff face risks too and yet carry nothing.

Certainly in the first case a baton wouldn't appear to have been much help to the officer, and again would probably have been used against them. In the second against 2 people it could have been useful, but who knows? Even if i were allowed I wouldn't be carrying a baton around with me when i was out.

I have used my baton a few times and would describe them as next to worthless in both offence and defence. If however I felt the need, I would be happy to carry spray .

Or, as we are dealing with off duty scenario, ignore the spray, just run and call for help😀

45 years ago today a Metropolitan Officer, Stephen Tibble off duty, assisted officers who were chasing a suspect. The Officer Stephen Tibble paid the ultimate price as he was shot three times in the chest by the suspect. The suspect was a member of a terrorist cell and fled the country but the investigation uncovered a bomb making factory. The murderer was eventually apprehended and sentenced to 30 years in prison.

In the MPS isn’t it the case that papa can be taken home on inspector’s authority? (e.g. if you have court or are parading elsewhere the next shift). 

Yeah; those being one of the certain circumstances...
