Re: anyone up for a 500m shield run?

From memory, the female was going on the bronze course or something, and she asked if she had to do the fitness test and was told no. When she arrived for the course she was td that she had to do it to pass the course and failed the test. She had to leave the course and was humiliated in front of he...

Re: anyone up for a 500m shield run?

We have scrapped it and now do a shuttle run for 5 mins (or something) with no PSU kit on and push & pull on a machine for 5 reps. It is a farce...we all laughed when they showed us what we had to do..............even the trainers laughed and said blame the female Insp. from Manchester who got a few...

Re: police community support officers took down tent

no matter who is responsible for what in all this, what is the moral of the story here? is the moral that PCSOs called to the scene of a tent, set up on someone else's land, should not just blindly follow orders from their supervisor "to take it down" ..... but should seek to "solve" the whole situ...

Re: Sussex police hit by phone charge ban

The force will not pay for PAT testing employees phones, as it is not a police item so that is rubbish.

Re: police community support officers took down tent

This article was all about the guy having his tent damaged when it was taken down and left for council to collect, simple as that. Why have the PCSOs done the landowners work for them, that is not their job. If the landowner wanted rid of it he could have taken it apart and binned it. If any officer...

Re: police community support officers took down tent

Big Brother wrote:Might be worth pointing something out. Section 4 of the Vagrancy Act 1824 makes it an offence for someone without visible means of subsidence to lodge in a tent, outhouse, barn or the open air.
So the tent should have been seized as evidence of an offence.

Re: police community support officers took down tent

The rest of the article: Mr Hicks, who is originally from Witney, became homeless in the summer after a relationship breakdown. He is on the local council's housing list but has been sleeping rough until a place is found. He said that he was very grateful to the people of Witney especially Mr MacKen...

Re: Rank structure.

SYP undertook an extensive review of the Supervisor role and initially, despite well reasoned arguments to the contrary, decided to dispense with it, believing there were potential financial savings that outweighed the advantages in retaining . However, as part of a wider consideration of neighbour...

Re: Rank structure.

You are having a laugh, a PCSO supervisor is equivalent to a Sgt. come on that is stretching it a bit far.

Re: Rank structure.

There has long been a rank structure for Specials it is just that recently the names have changed (in most forces) to more closely mirror the police rank structure. Here in SYP, despite a long and difficult review, it has been agreed that we will continue to have PCSO Supervisors. It is acknowledge...

Re: PAT result

I am not a police officer but if I was a fully operational PC working all times of day/night weekends etc I would think it was pretty fair that my colleagues who were in a desk job and able to go home every night to their spouse and kids should be paid less. I also think its fair that officers in s...
