  1. Also why say, '...you could expect anything from words of advice to suspect up to a harassment warning been issued.' This sounds like the most serious outcome would be a harassment warning being given, which is only 'words of advice' in any case, just backed up with a piece of paper. There is no such thing as a 'harrassment warning'. Do you mean a 'Police Information Notice' maybe? These are only given when a course of conduct cannot be evidenced/proved and is given (not issued) to the alleged perpetrator to a) make them aware what behaviour is causing HAD and b) to try and prevent future occurrences. It is not a legal documents and therefore cannot be breached per say but it just adds to the weight of evidence that one was given should the pattern of behaviour continue.

  2. As far as I know the only force that offers rail concession is MetPol. Used to be free but that changed to a yearly fee I believe and you just show your warrant card when boarding etc. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I enquired with numerous rail companies and they do not offer police discount. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  6. Reasonable force = as much force as is reasonable in the circumstances, it's not an exact science and it is subject to numerous factors as appose to a simple yes or no. No one here can give an opinion on what the officer deemed to be reasonable force, that is for the arresting officer to justify. We weren't there so it's impossible to judge. I can almost guarantee that your version of events will be far from the truth either down to intoxication or mere lack of acceptance that you were in the wrong. Grow up, take responsibility for your own actions and get over it. If not go through the relevant complaints procedure. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Been stopped a few times and have always treated the officer as I would like to be treated myself. I would never mention my profession unless asked as it's not relevant and I wouldn't expect any special treatment if I'm doing something wrong. On the flip side I've also stopped officers of varies ranks committing minor driving offences and have dealt with them how I would expect to be treated as well. Too many passengers sir? That's 3 points and a fine.
  8. HM Government e-petitions: The petition 'Create a new offence to protect Police Dogs from criminal acts & violence' has reached 10,941 signatures The e-petition 'Create a new offence to protect Police Dogs from criminal acts & violence' signed by you recently reached 10,941 signatures and a response has been made to it. As this e-petition has received more than 10 000 signatures, the relevant Government department have provided the following response: The Government agrees that attacks of any sort on police dogs, horses or any other police animal should be dealt with severely under the criminal law. However, it is not necessary to create a new offence in order to do this. An attack on a police dog can be treated as animal cruelty under s4 of the Animal Welfare Act 2006. The maximum penalty for this is six months imprisonment, or a fine of up to £20,000, or both. Under some circumstances, it may be possible for the offence to be treated as criminal damage, where as the petitioner implies, a much higher maximum sentence will then apply. Therefore, an additional offence dealing with attacks on police dogs is unnecessary. The behaviour is already criminal. An additional and separate offence would not be likely to lead to more prosecutions, or higher penalties. Nor would it serve as a more effective deterrent for future or potential offenders This e-petition remains open to signatures and will be considered for debate by the Backbench Business Committee should it pass the 100 000 signature threshold.

  11. Oh and this is only my flexible working request to suit my circumstances and would not mean any one else would have to work what I come up with. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. I do have colleagues who do/have done flexible working and they have been useful in suggesting alternatives yes but that's just my force. I'm just interested in what options are there that's all. Also I am not looking at this due to previous thread, I am in need of a different pattern due to childcare etc (and our pattern has recently changed also). My previous downfalls have no impact in my request for flexible working. It's a tricky job to work out a workable pattern hence the request for any previous experience of flexible working.

  15. Hi, Does any one here work any sort of full time flexible/compressed shift arrangement/pattern? If so could you enlighten me as to what patterns you do as I am currently trying to put together a few different patterns based on the 6 on 4 off 10 week rotation pattern to try work around my wife's 9-5 job and be around for most mornings for our new born baby. I can only do 10 hour days and have to try make up 40 hours a week. Any help or suggestion would be greatly received. Thanks RR Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
