  1. DBS certificate

    Why ask the question on a police forum? You should ask the DBS as they deal with DBS matters. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Paying into Police pension

    I guess they didn't listen to you. Perhaps they thought that it was better that not everyone lost out. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Can you cause affray with a vehicle?

    It could be Section 4 or 5 of the Public Order Act. Don't expect a huge amount of interest from the local police though. In the scheme of things this is not major crime. If it is a private car park then a complaint to the drivers boss, supported by some video evidence may stop his juvenile behaviour. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. When is a pay rise not a pay rise?

    She's right you know, 'A Downing Street source said that a typical police officer joining the force on a £23,259 salary in 2010 would have taken home £17,972 after deductions for tax and national insurance. After seven years' service, the same officer would have a salary of at least £35,478. This would give a take-home pay of £27,405 after tax and NI contributions - an increase of £9,433, equivalent to 32% more than required to keep up with inflation.' So the 4% of officers who joined in 2010 would have had such a rise, if they all remained employed as officers. By the similar calculations an MP's salary has increased by 127% over the same period if you compare the salary of an MP in April 2010 to their salary now if they had become PM.

  5. Speed

    Speed detection is based on actual speed, not what an individual speedo indicates. Road cameras are set to measure the actual speed but an element of 'grace' is used, so no one is going to get a ticket for passing a camera at just over the limit. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Doubled Moped Crime - how to fight it? / two ideas

    Changes to the law can only be made by parliament. You need to lobby your MP. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Youtube.

    Sounds ok. What is it that makes you think there is something illegal about it? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. What to do in this scenario ?

    Hard as it can be ignore B and when s/he has a go record them so the evidence is clear no matter how many fake witnesses they have. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Mopeds on motorways

    No No Yes And as for the other advice the Highway Code is not the law. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Never miss a chance to have a dig but seriously? Commissioner Dick took charge on 17 April 2017 and the mergers were implemented two weeks later. The article says that the DAC in charge was talking about the scheme back in November and something on the scale would have been months, if not years in planning. Do you think Ms Dick should have just said, 'OK, the staff don't like change so I will just put it all back as it was.'?
  11. International Police Association

    I worked with a couple of officers who were members. They used to use it for cheap holidays by doing house swaps.
  12. Best CID shift pattern.

    ... what is good for the victims. Or do we say, 'sorry, you should have been robbed/burgled/assaulted during the week. Our detectives prefer to work then.'
  13. Passing on the left? Offence?

    By your evangelistic approach I've never met a Traffic Officer who was not a hypocrite and we would have struggled to get the cars on the road as most officers would have lost their ticket. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Passing on the left? Offence?

    I did what I needed to pass and then drive like the rest of the cops after their course. 'Rules are for the obedience of fools and the guidance of wise men.' Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Passing on the left? Offence?

    The Highway Code is not the law, just guidance. I undertake like this nearly every day on my way to work. There's a 3-5 mile section of motorway that is very busy approaching two busy junctions half a mile apart. The middle lane usually goes along at about 50 mph with lanes 1 and 3 doing about 40. When you pass the first junction lane 1 speeds up and goes faster than lanes 2 or three. I often undertake in close proximity to a marked police car as there is a traffic centre just off the motorway. Those officers could stop hundreds of us drivers if they thought it was a serious crime, but then they'd have to stick themselves on as well. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
