    Done - but you should proof read your questions and correct them as appropriate. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Bad Neighbours

    Unfortunately not. Not within the law. Sounds like she's a tenant so her landlord is liable and you must continue to report all of her anti social behaviour to them. Also report all criminality to the police. All noise problems to the council. It gets wearing but bad people don't get chucked out of their houses because of one or two (or) 20 incidents. From the councils view they will always have this problem, they can just move it around but these people are a problem wherever they go. Get your neighbours on board and those who shout loudest and longest get action. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. dog collides with car

    Yes. It's a civil claim against the dog owner. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. 4hrs OT working into a Rest Day/Banking Holiday

    What does your Federation say about it? They are the first port of call for such advice, not some random people on a forum. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. You'd have to be there to make a valid comment. All we have is one person's viewpoint, and to be honest I really can't picture the scenario in any detail. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Career advice

    The MPS only recruits people who have lived in London for three years. You had better check if the same apples to transferees. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Wow!! First world problems. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Where to turn/Ill health retirement.

    I believe they can wait two years, after all it has to be shown that you are permanently totally disabled - unable to ever work for the rest of your life. But you should be asking your Fed rep for help and advice rather than random people on a forum. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. 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.

  13. 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
  14. 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
  15. Youtube.

    Sounds ok. What is it that makes you think there is something illegal about it? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  16. 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
  17. 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
  18. 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.'?
  19. 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.
  20. 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.'
  21. 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
  22. 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
  23. 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
  24. Passing on the left? Offence?

    What you describe would not be dangerous driving - A person drives dangerously when: ~ the way they drive falls far below the minimum acceptable standard expected of a competent and careful driver; and ~ it would be obvious to a competent and careful driver that driving in that way would be dangerous. Thousands of people do what you describe every day without being prosecuted. You may become unstuck if one of the slow movers on your right decides to move into lane 1 as you are passing and there is a collision. You will argue that they should have looked first and they will say you shouldn't have been undertaking. You are likely to get done.
  25. Passing on the left? Offence?

    There is no clear answer. It depends on the exact circumstances at the time and the opinion/attitude of the police officer who sees you doing this. The Highway Code allows for traffic moving faster than that in a lane to the right to pass the slower traffic but the HC is not the law and some eager beaver could say you are driving carelessly or recklessly.
