    Covert Dps

    I read this title and wondered how on earth you could have covert detained persons...

    The final board is a presentation followed by interview - you get all the information you need about it in a letter a couple of weeks before hand - the best advice I can give is to be reading the Norfolk website, getting your head around who's who and what Norfolk Constabulary do and go from there!

    Ozboy - Congratulations on getting there this time round - I look forward to meeting you at some point! :) Amy, Congratulations on passing the Assessment Centre - next steps is the final board interview which unfortunately you just have to wait for - it was a year between my AC and final board so who knows how long it will be this time! In regards to the fitness test is is a normal bleep test which you have to run to 5.4 on - it is a continuous test so you just run from one end of the gym to the other continuously getting quicker and they stop you at 5.4, I think it is about 3 minutes of running all in all and they key is practicing your turning as that's where most energy is lost! No longer do you have to do the push/pull or the grip test although if you get through to training you can have a go to see where your at for fun! Best of luck with your Final Board!
  6. My issue with this is that you respond to a Grade 1/A/Immediate and on scene rarely would I put on a hat, be in hard, soft, flat, bowler, peaked, baseball cap or otherwise so personally I do not see the need, If I am out on foot beat/public order is custodians anyway which in my view look to offer more protection than these! So in my opinion ditch the tens of thousands its costing to roll these out and by a few more tasers, or give everyone better batons or trousers that stay black! The only jobs I can see where these would be great are for those jobs involving getting out and following the dog, or area searching for things - but then I do not see the need for the 'hard' part of it and they could just issue/allow officers to wear normal baseball caps for this purpose. I would expect an officer attending an SD or delivering a death message to be wearing a Hat, but I would always adopt the flat cap over any form of baseball cap for this purpose.
  7. Accept the PIN, it is just a notice explaining what her allegations are, and if she makes further false allegations then you will have the chance to put your side across in interview and negate any crimes she may have alleged. The key word you have put is that she could lie again, who's to say she won't and then you can live separate lives and never contact each other or have police involvement again.
  8. Right. So you are missing details from your initially post then. I am not saying you do not have a right to complain I am merely saying it is not the police you should be complaining to for non criminal neighbour disputes. Speak to your local council and housing association about it and see what they can do. I'm not going to even begin to compare this neighbour dispute to the investigation into two murders of children - and for you to suggest such a thing is quite ridiculous!
  9. Okay; So the last time you saw him was Jan and he said 'Hello;' You played music at 2pm and he played music at 2pm; Theres no damage to the door which he has keys for your door suggesting some sort of ownership - apart from the scratch; You haven't seen him do any of these things you are just assuming; And you started it by complaining about his laminate flooring. Unless I am missing something huge here I cannot comprehend how you would expect the police to arrest him?
  10. What you expect and what Police powers, time and resources allow for are totally different... Instead of moaning about it ask some productive questions about what you should/shouldn't do. I am sure admin will be happy for this to continue with the normal disclaimer that this forum isn't for legal advice and that you should speak to a solicitor but here goes... in order of incidents: He has been smoking weed in his flat which is coming into mine He was dealing, when I told the HA he stopped doing it from the house but still smokes He has stood across the road staring at me (more creepy then criminal) He has kicked my door 3 times and 2 times All of the above sound like a case of neighbour anti social behaviour to me - what are you doing in response to this? Are you conversing with him? Shouting back? Getting antsy with him? even talking to him in conversation? Any damage cause when he kicked the doors? was this reported as criminal damage? do you actually know it was him or are you assuming? He scratched my car Was this reported to the police when it happened as a case of criminal damage? Do you have evidence to suggest that it was him or are you putting 2+2 together and assuming because of your history? What was the outcome of this? Damage? Cost? He wrote "die" in his language (which i googled) on my door. Again, was this reported to the police when it happened as a case of criminal damage? Do you have evidence to suggest that it was him or are you putting 2+2 together and assuming because of your history? What was the outcome of this? Damage? Cost? Whilst I can empathise with you regarding having neighbour problems, there is not always police intervention required and actually the council and housing associations have a lot of steps they can take including ultimately putting in junctions in place against ASB and evicting people if they feel in necessary and a court agrees, Have you spoken to them about it? For there to be the offence of harassment there has to be a clear course of conduct showing one way traffic from him to you, an argument for example is not harassment as you are responding! For someone to be arrested for this offence there has to be a necessity for that arrest which from what you have written I do not see. What will arresting him do? Lock him up for a few hours before he is released... Hopefully that will give you some things to think about - in the mean time do not slate your NPT or local police as I am sure you can imagine everyone is extremely busy ALL of the time, with a case load they are investigating and responding to 999 jobs, which I would like to hope you didn't call as this does not sound like an emergency.

    Light Placement On Cars

    Legislation.gov is your friend on this one - have a read through this and see if that answers your questions. http://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/1989/1796/contents/made

    Mobile Speed Enforcement

    No - Speed Traps are not "purely for raising revenue" they are to enforce the Law, simple, you drive at excess speed you break the law, camera vans catch you and you get a fine because you broke the law.

    Will Having Asthma Be An Issue At The Medical?

    No it shouldn't be - I am exactly the same as you mate - Mild Asthma not using inhalers. Because you have them prescribed they may tell you to carry one when working.
