  2. Role Of Firearms Officer

    That's a very good point of which I have overlooked. I watched 'CO19- On the front line' and I didn't like some of the officers attitudes they seem to come across as pretty arrogant.
  3. Role Of Firearms Officer

    This is what would put me off joining...doesn't sound very professional.
  4. Role Of Firearms Officer

    I know this article isn't exactly what the OP was on about but seeing as this is the most recent armed police thread thought I post this in here: Daily Mail Article
  5. I don't know how you can get the wrong end of such a simple question. Let me try again. To any current or ex police officers on here what sort of jobs did your fellow officers do? How many hours are you allowded or is there even a limit? Does it affect your ability to do the job? In fact do many officers have a 2nd income? I'm sure there are people who have/had/know people who had a 2nd income who can take part in the debate. Hope this helps.
  6. So far 2 jobs have been posted. Actually I was asking to see what other jobs people did in general just out of interest. No hidden agenda. No point trying to be made. Fella.
  7. Just out of interest what sort of second jobs do police officers do? Anyone know any friends/colleagues who had 2nd jobs and what they were?
  8. Police and the public

    Well at least we can agree on one thing.
  9. Police and the public

    Don't post in a public forum then. Why don't you ask you family and friends then seeing as they all seemed to have served in the police?
  10. Police and the public

    Your making out as though people are having a go at you for simply reporting a crime. People are complaining because you have approached a stab scene and made out that the officers should of sorted you out stright away. A ten-second explanation? Oh come on, you sound intelligent enough. Do you really need to be told? Find another officer away from the scene? You couldn't of been that bothered by it otherwsie you would of tried to found someone else. Radio? I'm no expert but as far as I know there are different radio channels or frequencies etc? If there was a stabbing the radio's would been extremley busy and if there was another incident in the town? Maybe the officers had been asked to keep the airways free as other officers were actually chasing the person who had done the stabbing and needed the officers at the scene to confirm his identity? There could of been lots of different circumstances as to why you weren't delt with. Ignorant and rude police officers was not one of them.
  11. A Metropolitan Police officer accused of striking a woman with a metal baton at a G20 protest has been cleared of common assault. Sgt Delroy Smellie denied attacking Nicola Fisher, 36, of Brighton, at the G20 demonstration in London in April last year. The officer told City of Westminster Magistrates' Court he feared objects in her hand were weapons . District Judge Daphne Wickham cleared him of the attack. She found no evidence had been provided to show use of the baton was not measured or correct. She said: "It was for the prosecution to prove this defendant was not acting in lawful self-defence.

  12. Police and the public

    LAMOP, I can't beleive you're so arrogant you thought that you should be placed above somone who has just been stabbed. Were there any door staff at the bar? Could they of delt with it? Why did you approach an emergancy scene where the officers were busy to try and report something? Maybe the problem with some members of the public (and yes I'm one aswell, I'm not in the police) is that they beleive they should always come first no matter what.
  13. Shot Greater Manchester Pc 'killed unlawfully' Pc Ian Terry was married with two children A police officer who was shot by a colleague during a "cops and robbers" training exercise was killed unlawfully, an inquest has found. Pc Ian Terry, 32, was killed as Greater Manchester Police's firearms unit practised in a disused factory in 2008. His colleague, a firearms officer known only as "Chris", shot Pc Terry, of Burnley, as he played a suspect. The jurors at Manchester Coroner's Court were critical of the firearms unit and its training regime. Their verdict of unlawful killing relates to both Pc Terry's death and the planning and conduct of the exercise. Greater Manchester Police Chief Constable Peter Fahy, who was in court for the verdict, apologised to Pc Terry's family "for GMP's failure to keep him safe". He said Pc Terry's death was "a great loss to the force and his loving family". The officer was not wearing body armour when was hit in the chest by specialist ammunition called Round Irritant Personnel (RIP). More here: News Link
  14. A sad state of affairs in this country. Please read

    I would like you to explain your title. You say ' A sad state of affairs in this country' but then only talk about your brother? Surley your brother is not represntative of all police officers in the country?
  15. Sky News Campaigns For Cameras In Court

    How would that work for witness protection? Not really going to encourage people to give evidence when their face is going to be broadcasted all over Sky News. I agree that it will lead to a trial by media, no doubt they will start the interactive option: 'Guilty or Not Guilty'- Press red on your remote.....
