  1. I’m disrespecting the armed forces? My father is ex-Scots Guards and then Paras. My uncle is an ex-RSM in the Scots Guards, my cousin is ex-Navy. My best mate is currently flying Tornado GR4s, my wife’s Dad is ex-RAF Regiment and I done a couple of years working in RAF bases. I’ve got a friend who is ex-Captain in the RMP. I served 6 years with the Police which I left. I’ve got a very good knowledge of how the Police and the military operate having been to hundreds of bases and done a bit of work with the RAF police and their roles are not the same as civilian Police Officers. I’m no longer going to waste my time with you, good luck with whatever you do.
  2. Nope which I know sounds backwards but it’s the public sector where no rules make sense!
  3. Sorry the spelling in my last post was awful, smartphones for you! NSV don’t do the Police vetting, NSV are part of the MOD and do counter terrorism vetting and so have nothing to do with the police. They do provide information to the police but that is all. The Royal Navy, RAF police etc are more like security officers than proper constables. It doesn’t matter if you’ve got access to top secret military information most of that has nothing to do with the Police and I honestly think you’re wasting your time chasing this. The prison service can be a great career if you’re interested in coming up north, you should check out the Scottish Prison Service that seems to be a great employer and not run by G4S!
  4. Phone 101 we can’t help with anything else.
  5. Police’s vetting is all done internally and do they have their own intelligence, Crime reports and information that isn’t available to anyone else (even to the prison service). The prison service don’t vet or have access to your relatives and associates information so it’s much simpler but a prison officer job doesn’t have the same responsibilities as a Constance and so doesn’t need the same amount of vetting.
  6. Am I doomed to fail vetting forever...

    The Police aren't allow to disclose the information they have if it's 3rd party, because it could breach that person's privacy or it can hamper the Police's investigation so personally I think you're probably wasting your time especially if you've appealed it and they say no. The newspaper, MP and crime commissioner won't be allowed access to the information either as it has nothing to do with them. I really feel for you, but I doubt there is anything you can do and so it may be time to look at another career. Not everyone is suited for a Police career, sometimes sadly it's not that person's fault either.
  8. My advice to your "friend" is go speak to a solicitor. If convicted of producing or supplying articles used for fraud, max sentence is 10 years. No one here can help, only a solicitor can help your "friend" properly.
  9. Dog Attack

    Not an expert in this area but to my knowledge it's the local authorities that deal with these cases. They have the powers to issue a Dog Control Notice where a dog is out of control: It is not being kept under control effectively and consistently (by whatever means) by the proper person Its behaviour gives rise to alarm, or apprehensiveness on the part of any individual, and the individual’s alarm or apprehensiveness is, in all circumstances, reasonable. The apprehensiveness may be as to (any or all) - (a) the individual’s own safety, (b) the safety of some other person, or (c) the safety of an animal other than the dog in question. Id contact the council and see what reason they'd issue a notice.
  10. Right To Silence

    Right to remain silent doesn't mean you can just ignore the officers and provide them with no information. If you're a driver of a vehicle you have certain duties, one of which is to provide any officer with the required information to ensure you're legally allowed on the road. Driving licences isn't a right, it's a privilege. Even in the situation where you do have the right to remain silent it doesn't mean you have a right not to be questioned.
  11. Police Officers with hearing aids

    From the MET: As I said, the forces are all different I'd just get in touch with them and let them answer your questions. They do have limits just like eyesight but it will vary force to force. I completely understand how annoying the restrictions can be, I was refused an opportunity to join the RAF as aircrew because I had childhood asthma for a month even though I was clear for 19 years!
  12. You're question has been answered by Reasonable Man, Criminally as long as the private land is away from a public road and the general public don't have access to it (for example a racing track) then the legislation covering Drink Driving doesn't apply. Your other question could you get sued and the legal disclaimers you need to make are questions you should be asking a solicitor. The only thing I'd like to add is that say you get the vehicle sorted and you jump in the car to celebrate. If something were to happen (parts fail, someone walks out in front of the car, cars crash into each other etc.) and someone was injuried and had time off work, wasn't able to work etc. then someone will end up getting sued for causing that accident. I'd highly recommend getting some sort of business insurance however I doubt any insurance company will want to cover you knowing that you were operating vehicles while under the influence of alcohol. I also agree that morally, I don't agree with it. I understand your point about Fast and the Furious however most sensible people understand it's a movie with loads of support in place not a couple of guys in a garage. I'd also say that just because there are idiots on the road doesn't make it OK for anyone else to act like an idiot. I'm of the view (having seen the damage that alcohol mixed with vehicles can cause) that no one should be promoting them being mixed together.
  13. Wouldn't be obstruction as it's not preventing the free flow of traffic along the road. The car doesn't look that bad to me.
  14. Police Officers with hearing aids

    They'll be a reason for it but as I said, ask the force you want to join directly.
  15. Police Officers with hearing aids

    When I was serving I never seen a Police Officer wear a hearing aid and as far as I know you wouldn't be allowed to join because they have a minimum hearing standard but I'd suggest you speak to the recruitment team of whichever force you want to join to get an exact answer. I was talking to a guy last week that was told he wouldn't be able to join the force without having laser surgery so that he met the eyesight requirements even though he could just wear glasses.
