By rights you are a Police Officer 24hrs a day 365 days a year on or off duty (In England and Wales of course).

I have on occasion "had to intervene" when off duty and am thankful I always carry my warrant card with me .

I was told this on joining and have always abided by this instruction.

The only time I did not was when I visited Northern Ireland in 1987 and again that  was an instruction given as one had to seek authorisation to travel to the province as troubles were high and the common sense advice was given.
