  1. If anyone's interested, I found out these shirts are ones issued to police motorcyclists. STC have motorcyclists so I think I've solved it,sadly not new regular bod kit.
  2. I know this may not help, but for new officers joining the met, they are no longer being given the option to opt in to ATOC.
  3. At download festival 2012 several security were arrested for drug dealing. Tried selling to plain clothes bods...
  4. Sounds you've had a rough deal. I managed 3 weeks street duties and now 3 month attachment to team before LPM. You really should have a mentor to help guide you though. I know it sounds silly but try and get stuck in. Look on emerald to see who's wanted, trawl crimint for drug addresses /people and target them ie jacking up warrants.
  5. First I've heard of it
  6. Could be a mixed bag. On LPT you will be dealing with your own crimes so there's rarely any handing things over. Will be good investigation experience, but the workload might be rather large at times. On my response team there's 15 other probbies. Near all probbies on team are going, even basic drivers with 6 years experience.
  7. TP have said new recruits will join LPTs as opposed to team. For those boroughs not on LPTS until September team officers have been given their postings, majority going to lpt or CPU ect. Most of the officers posted to remain on team are advanced drivers and other skills eg tazer. I'm posted to team until September then join LPT.
  8. This is exactly what I was after. Thanks for the replies
  9. Thanks that really clears it up. When stopping someone for driving on the phone for example would it be advisable to caution before they start with their excuses or replies to the offence when pointed out?
  10. Hello, I'm doing my first traffic op tomorrow and wanted to clear up a few things. At Hendon we weren't told to caution when pointing out an offence yet on borough one mentor mentioned to my other new colleague he should have. So would I be right in thinking if I stop a car for routine checks and then suspect he has no insurance, to then caution him before continuing with the enquiries?
  11. Yes it will get found out eventually. Many specials on my borough have been asked to resign, we've lost about 40 this year alone
  12. I know roughly what will be expected. more along tips how to get through it and any Dos/Donts etc Its been fairly smooth so far. I done the PLC course which was more home study work, only actually had 12 lesson tutor days in total on the course. I know its a big step up, and I cannot wait to get started.
  13. Retail work, 5 years as a PCSO after that. In my last week now.
  14. Hello all, Im due to start Street Duties very soon. What can i expect to be doing on borough during this time? Think I have some idea already but interested to hear other peoples experiences etc. Also, any tips for getting through it? Bit of going into the unknown. Cheers, Andy
  15. Hello all, Im currently undergoing the Met PLC course for PCSO to PC. Anyone else done the course and have any tips? On the first two workbooks atm and its a bit...frustrating.
