  2. Another update. 'The casefile has been submitted' turns out to mean 'the file of evidence has been sent to the DS at the Dog unit who hasn't yet assessed your dog . The case is not going to the CPS... it will most likely result in a voluntary order (keep the dog muzzled/on lead/ etc) and don't worry, it's very unlikely to go to court and you'll have your little dog back within the next week'. Feeling a lot calmer.
  3. Initial interview

  5. Sounds like, smells like and looks like one. Not that that's got anything to do with the random and incorrect statement that none of it is legally enforceable. The car finance definitely is as there is a legally binding contract. The student walking off without paying for her drink has made off without payment, so criminally wrong. The EU payments were signed up to and have yet to be tested in court but an agreement is an agreement. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  7. BBC: Brexit: UK to be 'educated' about consequences, says Barnier

    That's some serious extrapolation there. However you do sound like a bitter remainer.
  8. I've got my medical tomorrow. Hoping to make January course.

  9. Sounds like the typical Brexiteers view. A. Let's hope everything will be okay; B. If you say it often enough it will become true. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. BBC: Brexit: UK to be 'educated' about consequences, says Barnier

    Except none of it legally enforceable.
  11. A sustained four-month spike in hate crime after this year’s terrorist attacks peaked at a higher level than that following last year’s EU referendum, according to Home Office figures. Source: https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2017/oct/17/hate-soars-in-england-and-wales
  12. Those things that the UK signed up to that are being paid for in instalments, in effect. It's like agreeing a four year finance deal on a car then deciding after two years that you don't like the car anymore. The Brexiteers want to have a new car and don't see why they have to keep paying for the old one. Another analogy I saw was titled 'brexit for students'. 28 people go into a bar and order their drinks. One then leaves without paying. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I've got my medical this Thursday. Should pass that, then it's just a case of waiting for vetting and references. Hoping to make January course as I've applied for Sellafield. 

    How long did you have to wait for results of medical?

      Hi there. You get told on the day unless they refer you to a panel or head of medical. But it only took week to confirm in email too. Good luck. 

  14. Vetting - "Within 5 Years"?

    Excellent I will certainly make the request, just because why not? Thanks
  15. Flexible working

    Most shifts are 10 hours anyway so they're 4 day weeks.
  16. That is pretty much the reason I voted to leave.
  17. And what are those legal obligations? So far as I am aware there in nothing in any legislation pertaining to membership of the EU which requires any member state to pay what is tantamount to an exit fee if they leave.
  18. Vetting - "Within 5 Years"?

    A SAR will reveal all data a force holds on you. They do not withold sensitive data if it relates to you. They will not provide details of third parties and may redact certain words or names. Other than that they have a legal obligation to provide the data.
  19. Vetting - "Within 5 Years"?

    It's not Freedom of Information. That's not for personal details. You mean Subject Access under the DPA. If the reason is sensitive they can still refuse to tell you. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  20. The arrogance of the EU is matched only by their delusions. Their currency is destined to fail.
  21. BBC: No cash in Budget for 'no-deal' Brexit, says Hammond

    There is no way anyone can know whether in 20 years the UK will be better off. Of all the material I've read, one economists book stands out for me. I studied European politics at MSc level too, and I think the UK, will be better off out of the EU in some time. But, we need leaders who are confident and strong. Unfortunately Theresa May is neither.

  23. Vetting - "Within 5 Years"?

    You do seem to be in an unusual situation I'd try the freedom of information act then, see if they do have anything on you for the sake of £10
  24. Newbie question

    Hi all, I am currently waiting for Avon and Somerset to open recruitment and I am wondering, as I read somewhere, is it possible to get assigned to any particular unit whilst going through probation? i.e. detectives ,or are the 2 years just done as a general duties officer to gain overall experience? Thanks in advance, Julian.
  25. Carrying acid in public could lead to six months in jail 14 October 2017 From the section UK Image copyright Getty Images People caught twice carrying acid in public will receive a mandatory six-month prison sentence, the Home Office has proposed. It is aimed at curbing the number of acid attacks committed, which has more than doubled in five years. Home Secretary Amber Rudd said she intended to ban the sales of corrosive substances to under-18s. About 21% of such attacks were committed by under-18s between November 2016 and April 2017. 'Lives ruined' Ms Rudd said the government was sending a message that "the cowards who use these [acids] as weapons will not escape the full force of the law". The new legislation would make it an offence to possess a corrosive substance in public. An individual caught with the substance would have to prove they had good reason for possessing it. If a person is caught twice with acid, they would serve a minimum six-month sentence if over the age of 18. At this year's Conservative Party conference, the home secretary announced plans to ban sales of the substance to under-18s. She said: "Acid attacks are absolutely revolting. "We have all seen the pictures of victims that never fully recover - endless surgeries, lives ruined." Recent years have seen a number of high-profile acid attacks across the UK.. Image caption Andreas Christopheros was a victim of mistaken identity In 2014 Andreas Christopheros, from Truro in Cornwall, was attacked at his front door with sulphuric acid in a case of mistaken identity. He was left with permanent facial scarring and he remains blind in one eye. David Phillips, 49, from Hastings, Sussex, admitted assault causing grievous bodily harm with intent. Mr Christopheros said: "[The acid attack] impacted every aspect of my life. "From the moment I've woken up, every morning it takes me about half an hour to regain my sight. "I've lost my eyelids three times now from the contractions of the scars." The proposed legislation on acid would mirror the 'two strikes' rule which makes knife possession an offence. The Home Office is also considering criminal proceedings against online retailers who deliver knives to a buyer's home. It is hoped the measure would curb the sale of blades to children or teenagers.

  26. Vetting - "Within 5 Years"?

    It’s a fair point, I may well just keep trying my luck. It just gets tiresome to get hopes up and have it crumble for seemingly no tangible reason, but similarly I understand why they could fail someone and their reasoning to an extent. Problem I’ve got is my family is tiny, and never appear to have gotten into trouble at all, so figuring out who it could’ve been and convincing someone to admit any offences to me is futile. Its more frustrating because usually forum peeps that fail vetting have that long lost dad that’s up to no good, or the cheeky brother getting in trouble, but I literally have zero clue! It will probably remain a mystery. I appreciate the info and I’ll probably keep trying as you say. Who knows!
  27. Vetting - "Within 5 Years"?

    You can request a freedom of information act costs about £10 and that will give you all the information they have on you, aswell as that you can contact the vetting team and ask about what you can do next, I was always told they have to fail you if they find something on someone you didn't mention, however they can question you on someone you did mention which in some cases can lead to a passed vetting. I joined the Prison Service as an alternative and in the background will apply to the Police there's no rules to applying after a failed vetting and what have you lost?
