Just when you think things are getting better...

Written by RSS Poster Disgruntled on the 27th April 2012 at 21:24 - Posted in Police Blogs

Yep, it appears that there is need for this blog again. The frustrations have been building up and I need somewhere to vent.It would appear even in the world of firearms that we are also vulnerable to this mindless coalition government and that the cuts are deep enough to change, what I thought, was a very secure, small and essential unit. Even now I've seen jobs removed from teams, people shoved out of the unit and morale hitting absolute rock bottom in what I thought would be a highly motivated...

I may be some time...

Yes, I've finally got round to logging in again.I'm not going to lie, this blog has been the absolute last thing on my mind of late. Work, and I mean MY kind of work has been pretty good to me. Course after course has been laid on and I'm almost valued at the moment even in these times of hardship! It's funny how you suddenly get pushed forward in peoples priorities when suddenly they realise you will be the first at scene for a terrorist attack...As for this blog I think I will lay it to rest. It's...

Policing Pledge... Policing what??!

Written by RSS Poster Disgruntled on the 29th June 2010 at 20:49 - Posted in Police Blogs

No sooner had my Supervision finally nailed every PC with the 'Policing Pledge' it would now appear the current government think it's a pile of and have promptly disposed of it....Great! Thank god! What huge waste of time and effort that was trying to force me to comply with it, in the process changing nothing, wasting vast sums of money and then getting rid of it!Another 'fad' passes into the void and we move on into money saving and difficult times for the civvies and other wasters on the payroll....

Derrick Bird

Written by RSS Poster Disgruntled on the 05th June 2010 at 23:49 - Posted in Police Blogs

I was on duty when the incident was ongoing and there were a fair few armed officer watching Sky News in the nick waiting for further updates. The media seemed to hold the police accountable very quickly even before it was known that Mr Bird had taken his own life.What the media can't seem to deal with is that he was a NORMAL bloke. Well, as normal as the next man and he happened to be a firearms holder. He wasn't a psycho mentalist in his spare time and didn't ear living creatures as per the Crossbow...

Seeing some of the people passing the recent Sergeants it fills me with a lot of hope and some dread. A couple of individuals should not have been signed up to do the exam in the first place let alone progress any further now they have managed to pass it!A few lads I know will make good, if not, great Sergeants and I can only wish them well.What fascinates me now is seeing how the 'Part one'ers' start adapting their behaviour to how they feel a Sergeant should be behaving. I love seeing how suddenly...

Sunshine and scum...

Written by RSS Poster Disgruntled on the 24th April 2010 at 21:46 - Posted in Police Blogs

The days have been particularly sunny of late and me and the missus chose to spend the time in the local park. Families were everywhere, kids playing and it was a lovely day.Then a small group walked through. 5 males, two in black and white hoodies (despite the heat), the rest with grubby t-shirts and all with a customary beer in hand. I was pretty sure their faces were red from the alcohol as opposed to any sun burn and I could smell cannabis wafting from them.I sat their pretty relaxed, I didn't...

Ambulance 212

Written by RSS Poster Disgruntled on the 28th March 2010 at 22:10 - Posted in Police Blogs

Here's a link for an excellent programme 'Cutting Edge' which I managed to catch the other night:http://www.independent.co.uk/arts-entertainment/tv/reviews/last-nights-tv-the-ambulance-channel-4br-ann-widdecombe-versus-girl-gangs-itv1br-no-heroics-itv2-935241.htmlBriefly it's about a couple of crews working the same Ambulance, 212 in this case, and doing the rounds in Reading. The normal reality stuff you'd imagine but this really succeeds because there's barely any voice over and the crew just tell...

I'm part of the policing pledge... apparently...

Written by RSS Poster Disgruntled on the 06th February 2010 at 13:28 - Posted in Police Blogs

Are there any other PCs out there that know anything about the political 'guff' that is the policing pledge?! The first I knew about this was when an advert popped up on the telly telling me that all the police comply with it!!If ever we needed more evidence that policing is little more than political tinkering then the policing pledge is a clear demonstration of it. You'd think it was an election year of something wouldn't you?! ;)Labour panicking, seeing the complete and utter shit heap that is...

Jack Straw burns all bridges!

Written by RSS Poster Disgruntled on the 31st December 2009 at 19:31 - Posted in Police Blogs

Words nearly fail me on this one:Jack Straw 'sceptical' about overworked policehttp://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk_politics/8436110.stmMy favourite part is:"Some police officers, whatever they say, actually quite enjoy being in the police station in the warm".As opposed to what exactly? Standing out on a point in -2℃?Well I never! I would have thought 'Police Officers' would enjoy freezing their bollocks off instead - bunch of weirdo sadists that they are... Have a good New Year everyone, let's make...
