Before posting news stories...Rules!

Recommended Posts

This section of the forum is for you to post any UK police related story that may be of interest to other forum members.  

Please note that due to copyright restrictions you must only include the title, the first line of the article and a link to the original article. 

Articles from the BBC can be posted in full, but must also include a link to the original article. So before posting an article from a newspaper please check to see if it is available from the BBC instead.

We are allowed to post a limited number of Police Oracle articles, in full, each month. Therefore, if you want to share a Police Oracle story, please only include the first line of the article and a link to the original article. 

All news articles will be hidden until moderator approval is given.

Before posting in the News area can I please request that you:

. post the story (for BBC news articles only) or the first line of the article (all other sources) and not just a link. Not everybody is able to follow a link so can't therefore see your story.
.ensure you include a link and cite the source of your news story - we do not own the copyright and MUST credit the source.

I'd also like to remind police officers, PCSOs, police staff and police volunteers not to release any information whatsoever that is not already in the public domain. "In the public domain" means the information has already been widely circulated on TV and/or radio, in the mainstream press, or on public access internet news sites. Note that on occasion, information which has previously been published in the mainstream may for legal reasons be subject to reporting restrictions at a later time; such information must not be reproduced here on the forum.

Doing so may jeopardise ongoing police investigations and/or legal proceedings and may result in prosecutions for example under the Data Protection Act or Official Secrets Act. 

When replying to news articles please remember that everyone is (under the UK legal system) innocent until proven guilty beyond all reasonable doubt.


Thank you for your cooperation.
