  4. The white paper is a red herring. It will only be published for discussion after article 50 is invoked and then it matters not.

  6. Cops stop taxi - specials?

    It appears by reading this topic and responses regarding their training / lack of ours etc. that Specials are guilty until proven innocent when there doesn't seem to be any evidence regarding who stopped the taxi?

  9. Durham is making sure its volunteer officers can access help without having to pay for it. Durham Special Constabulary Chief Officer Dale Checksfield says the move shows specials are valued Date - 21st December 2016 By - Ian Weinfass - Police Oracle A force has decided to pay for injury and mental health rehabilitation for its special constables. Durham Constabulary recently covered the costs of SC Peter Hetherington’s treatment at the unit in Auchterarder, Perth. The special, the first from an English force to be treated there, had detached and severed his ankle ligaments while trying to arrest a drunk and abusive man in Durham town centre. He had an operation to reconstruct the joint and needed three months off work. The Police Treatment Centres offers rehabilitation to serving and retired officers, specials, PCSOs and detention officers in the north of England, Scotland, Northern Ireland, British Transport Police, Civil Nuclear and Ministry of Defence Police. To be eligible for treatment, personnel need to make regular contributions of about £1.30 per week. But the north east force has agreed to cover the costs of specials’ treatment at no charge to the individuals themselves. Regulars still have to pay in for treatment, but they are also covered for injuries picked up off duty. Retired officers need to pay 65p per week. Durham specials’ Chief Officer Dale Checksfield said: “The physical and mental wellbeing of our staff, including special constables, is a high priority for Durham Constabulary. "Special constables operating on the frontline face the same risks as their paid counterparts and in the unfortunate event that they are injured in the execution of their duty it is only right that they are afforded the same rehabilitative care. "This latest step forward strengthens an already strong bond between Durham and PTCs and will ensure our special constables have the confidence that the contributions they make are valued." The force says it has worked with HMRC to ensure there is no tax liability for the specials from being part of the scheme. SC Hetherington is the first volunteer officer from England or Wales to receive treatment at the PTCs. Specials, along with PCSOs and detention officers, were only made eligible to get help from there in January. In a statement he said: "The treatment here has been fantastic and just as importantly I now have so many pointers to take away with me to keep my rehabilitation going." The PTCs hope other forces will follow Durham's lead on the issue. http://www.policeoracle.com/news/special_constabulary/2016/Dec/21/constabulary-to-pay-for-specials--treatment_93729.html
