j4321jj posted a topic in Law & ProcedureHi there, I currently serve as a special constable and was curious as to what people's views are on intervening whilst off duty. I've seen quite a lot around about being a key witness rather than intervening unless lives were in danger, which I totally understand. However, sometimes i'm in situations that I think to myself "Should I do something or say something". For example in a club I often get a guy come up to me and offer to sell me a plethora of drugs, I can quite literally see them as he shows off the little packets of what are usually pills or some form of Class A. I obviously just say no, but do I have a duty to do more? I feel silly asking, but people's opinions are so varied as to where you should draw the line between your duty and your "civilian life", as it were. What would you do in this situation? Thanks so much for any input!
