  1. If it was years the Ms Dick would have beeb fully aware. She could have said "No" But as usual it will be ignore the public, they are here to serve us, not the other way round.
  2. Fiearms Certificate

    If you declared them last time then it is essential that you declare them this time. If the motoring convictions were as far back as 1980 I would be amazed if they would decline to renew your firearms licence. Just make sure that you can account for the firearms and the amount of ammunition held. As you said S.W. Police are taking a hard line on undisclosed convictions. You have already disclosed them. It appears that some people may not have been disclosing past convictions and it is those where a problem and crack down arises.
  3. Fiearms Certificate

    What did you declare last time, I suspect that you did not include those in 1980. Not too sure of the wording now in the questions but I would suspect that as you are only renewing the certificate you would not declare two driving convictions nearly 40 years ago that you cannot remember the details of. The think that the only one you would need to declare would be a conviction like Driving over the drink drive limit. But, this is only the advice that I give and I could be wrong having retired 5 years ago.
  4. Being papered by IPCC

    I believe so but, the Federation can tell you 100%
  5. writer research

    It is unlikely that the DI would be making the enquiries, that would be done by the murder team, D.C's or D.S's. There would probably be a Det.Supt. in charge and the team would attended the morning briefing for updates, and the allocation of enquiries. The OIC would keep the senior officers above him appraised of any progress and that would be progressed up to the Chief Constable.
  6. And, some thought Cressida Dick was the Bees knees. Demoralising the troops is not a very clever strategy.
  7. The problem is that the people who assault Police do not give a dam about the consequences. Of course it takes some form of hero to assault a female officer, and that is not sexist at all. She received support from her tutor, Inspector and the Federation which is to be expected. Assault on Police has always been a problem but the Courts should show that it is taken seriously by remand ing each case to Crown Court for sentencing. It needs the Court to give substancial sentences for Assault Police. The report does not indicate if the offender was arrested or not, or even made a Court appearance. There are ofcourse the occasional pposter on here who criticise the use of force by officers when arresting an offender like this. There are more interested in criticising the Police and do not like to acknowledge that there are offenders out there who think nothing of using violence.
  8. It is no surprise how many forces got involved in PFI. Even a novice schoolchild knows that if you get something then, at some time, you have to pay for it. In the case of the GMP they went on a spending spree under Peter Fahy and will be in debt forever more. They went on a spending spree building new DHQ's and an Headquarters when there was very little wrong with the ones that they had.
  9. Judges win pension case

    Both please make sure that you seek expert advice from the Federation, as I believe that both Chiefs have acted unlawfully. The only problem is that I am out of date with the Regs and no longer have copies of them. I believe that you are able to request a new review of your injury and disability. Do not be afraid to contact your MP either, you would be surprise how a letter from them to the Force shakes a few branches.
  10. Mopeds used in Crime

    Bosses just do not like acknowledging a hue problem. I would not describe them as mopeds, they are motor scooters. It is well known that they can escape down entries and paths anytime. They have to be stationary at some time, and that is the time to hit them. A large majority are stolen and using false plates.
  11. QUESTION RE IOD AWARD.

    I believe that you are right but, as I say I am a little out of date so would be loathe to comment. However your JBB Federation Officers should know. A Local Fed. Rep, however dedicated, does not have the intimate knowledge required. Contacting the NARPO office in Wakefield could also be helpful. Check out the PIPPIN web site and their Forum which carries a lot of information and contacts.
  12. QUESTION RE IOD AWARD.

    Try Pipin.org.uk which is a Web site run by retired IOD officers and is full of useful information. I would recommend that you also seek an appointment with your Federation and an officer from the JBB officers. If the injury/ illness was as a result of being on duty you should still be entitled to full backing. I was Fed but a lot has changed in the last 5 years. You do need advice as, among other options they could try and recall you to duty. The Piping Web site has valuable information and links. I have several levy arch files with regs and stated cases, which are now a little dated but, all the info is available through Piping. NARPO could also help but, it essential that you get advice from an expert who is intimate with the Regs and details. Hope everything goes ok for you. The Piping step has a Forum with many experienced heads, and us worth joining.
  13. International Police Association

    Not a member myself but I know many who are. They speak very highly of the organisation and worldwide events they hold.
  14. As the above two posts. Do not waste their time or yours. If there is one position for ruining relationships it is the CID.
  15. Passing on the left? Offence?

    Not an evangelistic approach at all. The Poster asked for advice and received it. It does not help that some, so called officers, then decided to imply that you can do what you like and ignore laws which do not suit. You either drive correctly and lawfully or you do not, simple. I know many officers who have lost their driving authorities.
