    Hi harassment advice needed.

    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.

    Senior Interview.

    Essex have a 6 question competency related interview so Kent may have something similar as they share some back office services. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    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

    I enquired with numerous rail companies and they do not offer police discount. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    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

    Essex Police Transferee Recruitment 2015

    Do you know the format of the interview? Mines a 6 question competency interview with a supt and HR followed by a 60 minute exam. So many hoops for a simple transfer don't you think? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Police stops Police, how do you relate?

    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.
  13. 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.
