Hello there, I am just finishing my training for Notts Police. I have recieved all of my equipment, however I am just concerned about one small thing, the 21" baton (actually 20" long). To me, maybe because i'm 6ft4, but the baton feels so short. I know that other police forces in the UK carry the 26" baton, and personally i feel that the extra 6" of baton would make a massive difference when deployed and trying to fend someone off etc. I know that you guys don't use the batons very often, but i was just wondering whether i would be able to return my 21" mint conditon baton to stores and ask them to do a purchase order for a 26" baton instead from Patrol Store. I could then either pay the difference (very small) or maybe even pay the full cost, if there a but funny about it. Just wondering whether you guys think that this would be at all feasable or whether i just wouldn't be allowed under some kind of standardised equipment policy. I would personally just feel a lot more comfortable with the 26" baton as oppossed to the 21" (actually 20") baton. And words of wisdom much appreciated, Kind Regards Madmandare
