  1. Police officer shot

    I blame the ipcc for this. The know it all bunch of see you next tuesdays always present situations as police on one side and everyone else on the other. Of course will get the blame for this as we obviously 'murdered' a pillar of the community.......
  2. Accommodation in London for training

    Bernard Morgan house, Google it. It's pretty big and never fully occupied so i wouldn't worry about it too much. Place is pretty decent though lack of tinternet im told is irritating. It's pretty well situated and you know what they say, location location location......
  3. Accommodation in London for training

    You'll be in the city police section house. The kitchens are special.......
  4. New recruitment

  5. Met Police and Taser

    Only city tsg and Tsg have tasers. Sadly we on response haven't even got florries that fit correctly!
  6. Andy Coulson, arrest necessity?

    Chaps, Not wishing to be funny, but on what grounds have the mets nicked Coulson? Without going into the legal side (yet!), my understanding was he attended voluntarily and unless the mets had a serious reason to believe he was to leave the interview he cannot be legally arrested. I appreciate that ye olde prompt and effective isn't the only tool available, however it would be the only aspect of the test that fits in these circumstances. He's hardly going to have turned up pissed either. Am I missing something huge here?
  7. Lanyards On Captor

    City like the mets do jot have a chord. We have a black pouch with shiny gold buttons, because were city and were better like that.... Oh and it flicks open at every opportunity!
  8. yanks to get taser glove!

    Gives new meaning to the phrase 'toasted nuts'..... :whistle2:
  9. yanks to get taser glove!

    http://www.engadget.com/2011/06/01/bodyguard-stun-glove-leaps-out-of-comic-books-into-the-arms-of/#disqus_thread Could you imagine us getting these or even being allowed to use them..... If we so much as give someone a dirty look we get complaints.....! Still, could liven up nights a little.
  10. Police Academy UK

    Just watched the last episode, excellent series. I really liked Alfred, on the face of it he comes across as a bit dopey. However actually listening to his thoughts he makes some pretty salient points. For me his quote regarding the British style of policing was of particular interest: "For as much as they encourage people to know their rights, they too must encourage people to know their responsibilities." Not a truer word said! Loved the bit at the Zambian shooting range, even the trainer missed.
  11. Sterilisation clinic for addicts comes to UK

    Are you ignoring decades of medical research which clearly states that addiction is a physiological affliction not just psychological? Lets be clear, the only reason we see drug abuse as an issue in this context is due to negative sociological effect that abuse has on wider society i.e. theft, burglary, prostitution, organised crime, and a drain on public finances. There are many many individuals in our more privileged echelons of our society who are addicted to hard drugs, but due to their wealth can manage this habit without the notice of friends, family and public. Following this line of thought, does it not concern you that we could apply a similar solution to other 'undesirables' who are a also a social blight? Single mothers who have children to gain access to benefits? Smokers (massive drain on NHS)? Paedophiles? Patients suffering from poor mental health? Right... does anyone really need to respond to this? I'd be interested in seeing some evidence of this.
  12. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-11531307 I have always thought that this area of criminal law focused to heavily on the outcome of the assault and not on the circumstances or malice surrounding it. Now if we could find a way to insure that PPOs are handed appropriate sentences and not given legal aid as an automatic right then I might be able to curtail my involuntary cursing....
  13. Wilts Sgt set for sack after custody assault

    As abhorent as any abuse of power is and regardless of the conviction handed to the officer. Why do I get the impression that this has been somewhat blown out of proportion? Had the vic not been injured or even had the vic been male would we even hear about it? I'm loathe to comment on this one as I am not in full possession of the facts, but surely Andrew's was more concerned with keeping his job than the opportunity to assault a mop?
  14. Future Carnage In the Met??

    Chaps, we do 2 earlies, 2 evenings, 2 nights then 4 days off. I really like our shift pattern, means I only ever have to get up early twice in 10 days. The nights throw you a little because your only doing two of them but means you can have a social life. I think you met boys will like once you get it....
  15. City of London Police

    Where is your assessment being held chaps? When I did mine last year it was out in Essex...! I'm curious to know if they have moved it to bishopsgate while were all out on our first pdu...
