  1. Not committing crime is probably a good starting point.
  2. I wouldn't say that you're under any form of obligation to even consider a voluntary interview. That being said it is obviously going to be a suitable and a sensible option, especially with the investigation of volume crimes. With relevance to the OP's initial post, upon reflection I have noted that they have suggested that the CPN has deemed the suspect fit to be interviewed, in respect of their mental health, as long as the interview is conducted expeditiously. This factor, coupled with the suspect's refusal to attend the police station on a voluntary basis, makes an arrest even more necessary than it was before.
  3. Yes. You've got a necessity to arrest them all day long. They're refusing to attend on a voluntary basis so there's no questioning the necessity. As an OIC you're under no obligation to offer someone the opportunity to attend on a voluntary basis. I'm not for a second suggesting that this is the case for the OP but in my experience there is a lack of knowledge and confidence in the use of Code G and the application of the necessity test. Situations like this, not specifically related to mental health but considering re-arrest, will become more common when the bail regulations change.
  4. Welcome! I must say, good choice of Constabulary too [emoji1305]
  5. We could see you on the next season of Rookies then :)
  6. It wouldn't have anything to do with the fact that two people being overly loving in a secluded (yes) area could be committing a criminal offence? Members of the office of Constable (coppers to the lay person), as per the oath of attestation, are duty bound to deal with ALL offences. If I was you (sadly I'm not) I would focus your attention on not committing offences and/or coming to the attention of the local Constabulary, rather than worrying about the allocation of police resources*. *Unless of course you are a Police and Crime Commissioner, if so, by all means focus your attention in this area
  7. What's a print and penalty booklet?
  8. Brilliant. This quote simply sums up the attitude of some people. I've read this thread and, in my opinion, you have had more advice and help than you really deserve. I am willing to help anyone but when people dismiss suggestions / advice without giving them any thought and refuse to consider anyone else's opinion but their own then I swiftly lose interest. There's two sides to every story. I'm sure your neighbour would paint an entirely different picture.
  9. Zak87, which force have you applied for? PC / SC? Each force might be different but I would expect that you get measured and try on bits of uniform etc. In my scenario the uniform was delivered to you at some point during training.
  10. What score (%) did you get at the AC? When you say failed, do you mean you failed the AC as a whole, or did you not meet your forces required score?
  11. Yes, the police can help in situations like this. However, at the risk of sounding controversial, there are numerous things that you can do to help yourself. Any police action will prove fruitless if you are going to continue with counter-productive actions.
  12. I don't understand the logic.... The questions asks, quite specifically, have you EVER been in trouble with the police? If being arrested, 'bundled' in the back of a police car and questioned at a police station isn't being in trouble with the police then what is? It might be the cynic in me, however I can't help but question the decision making / thought process that lead you to not disclosing this on the initial application. Sorry if this comes across a harsh, everyone is entitled to their own opinion and all that jazz.
  13. I think you could be looking at the offence of Wasting Police Time... Where a person causes any wasteful employment of the police by knowingly making to any person a false report tending to show that an offence has been committed or to give rise to apprehension for the safety of any person, or property, or tending to show that he has information material to any police inquiry, commits an offence.
  14. Good luck and God bless
