    Laura, for just starting out a 10 min mile is not too bad. I am 49 with 28 years service, so when I joined the running test was 1 & half miles in 12 min = 8 min for 1 mile. Forward on 27 years I pass the force fitness bleep test with no running beforehand. The only fitness I do is walking my dogs twice a day. Sent from my PLK-L01 using Tapatalk

    evidence dimensions

    At a guess, the scale is in CMs, with 1/2 cm divisions. Making the knife approx 13cm (5 inches) from tip to hilt. Sent from my PLK-L01 using Tapatalk

    Cnc Question

    Possibly that CNC is not recognised as a HO force as per the recent pension ruling that they are classed as civil servants. Its only a guess and happy to be corrected. Sent from my PLK-L01 using Tapatalk

    Do I Have To Comply.

    Tankie, Yes you have to stop, and commit a specific offence with regard to traffic census if you don't. No you don't have to answer the questions. Sent from my PLK-L01 using Tapatalk

    How Does One Submit Dashcam Footage?

    It depends, each force have different policies, some have a link on their website, some you need to contact them and they will give you an email address. You have to realise that if the matter goes to court in that county, it is you that has to attend to give the evidence. Sent from my PLK-L01 using Tapatalk

Just Googled it, everyday's a school day.Male Donkey - Jackass Female Donkey - Jennet Donkey - Domesticated version of a wild ass Mule - Offspring of a male donkey and a female horse. Hinny - Offspring of a male horse and a female donkey. Booth of which are usually born sterile due to a missing chromosome. Well, I never knew that. See - Who says Traffic is Boring ??

  14. If you have had an email from an official UK police account it will usually be in forename.surname@(force name).pnn.police.uk. Or collarnumber eg 1234@forcename.pnn.police.uk If its not then I would be suspicious of it. Sent from my PLK-L01 using Tapatalk

    Today Is My Last Day In The Job.

    Dragonfly, well done for letting it stay. Roger, I wish you well in the future and all that holds. I hear more and more of these retirement messages, across a number of different sites, where officers put papers in to go (Retirement and Early) and the recurring message in most of them is basically "The job doesnt give one anymore. No Thanks, No Goodbye, just There's the door shut it on the way out" I believe part of this is the Butterfly, remote management culture we now have and not just at senior level. My Sgt for my annual appraisal this year is located 25 miles from where I work, and other than 3 emails about sorting my PDR I have never met or spoken to him since he was allocated to me in March this year.
