Part 2c – Police & Community Relations (The Scarman Report – Summary & Findings)

Written by RSS Poster The Peel Blog on the 30th August 2012 at 15:10 - Posted in Police Blogs

Thank you for your continued interest into this staged Blog. I have had a period of being busy at work and at home but I am back. In my three Blogs I covered the Inquiry lead by Lord Scarman into the Brixtion Riots in 1981. They can be found here and if you are a first time reader I recommend that you read these two previous posts before reading on. Part 1 - http://sirrobertpeel.wordpress.com/2012/07/13/police-community-relations-part-1-the-brixton-riots-1981/ Part 2a - http://sirrobertpeel.wordpress.com/2012/07/23/part-2a-police-and-community-relations-the-scarman-report-1981/ Part...

Increasing Demand On Special Constable – Peels Review

Written by RSS Poster The Peel Blog on the 28th July 2012 at 14:20 - Posted in Police Blogs

It is no secret that every force is currently struggling to deal with budget cuts inflicted on them by Government. Only this week the media has been full of reports stating that we have as many as 10,000 less Police Officers on the street since this Government came to power. Forces are looking at collaboration projects with neighbouring forces, staff posts are being cut and morale is low. Forces all over are desperately looking at ways to plug the gap. Having had a chat with a Twitter follower who...

Conflict Management – Police Use of Taser

Written by RSS Poster The Peel Blog on the 27th July 2012 at 17:00 - Posted in Police Blogs

I do not need to remind you of the dangers that police officers these days face. Once upon a time the traditional Constable in their tunic and wooden peg as is was called was enough to put the fear of god into anyone, however today is another story. Before I get into this post have a look at this short video. Whilst watching it I want you to take note of the use of a wheelie bin and think about the incident without that bin. Frightening stuff hey! Police Officers carry a belt or tactical vest that...

Part 2b – Police and Community Relations (Scarman Report cont)

Written by RSS Poster The Peel Blog on the 26th July 2012 at 16:35 - Posted in Police Blogs

I have written two Blogs so far on the relationship between the Police and the Community. I started with the Brixton Riots of 1981 and what happened. This can be viewed by clicking this link http://sirrobertpeel.wordpress.com/2012/07/13/police-community-relations-part-1-the-brixton-riots-1981/  I continued with examining the report into the cause of the riots that had been written by Lord Scarman. This is a very comprehensive report and to be honest at the time I did not know how big a task it...

Part 2a – Police and Community Relations (The Scarman Report 1981)

Written by RSS Poster The Peel Blog on the 23rd July 2012 at 19:29 - Posted in Police Blogs

I recently wrote a post on the Brixton Riots of 1981 and I explained that I had chosen this point in time to start with my assessment of the relationships between the Police Service and the Community that we serve. The previous Blog covered the build up to the Brixton riots and if you have not read that post you can see it by clicking the link Police & Community Relations – Part 1 – The Brixton Riots 1981 Immediately following this very violent event the Government appointed Lord Scarman...

Pc Simon Harwood – Peels View

Written by RSS Poster The Peel Blog on the 21st July 2012 at 19:17 - Posted in Police Blogs

I have written this post following the court result in the Ian Tomlinson case. If you do not know what case I am talking about it is a trial that ended this week after a police officer named Simon Harwood was filmed hitting a man with a baton and pushing him to the floor. A short while later that man who was called Ian Tomlinson died. This case has obviously attracted massive media interest. I have mixed views of the media but experience has proven that the media will write anything to sell a paper...

Part 2 – Custody Duties – My Shift on 18/07/2012

Written by RSS Poster The Peel Blog on the 19th July 2012 at 12:51 - Posted in Police Blogs

I wrote part 1 of this Blog yesterday and said that I would be writing a further one at a later date. When I said that I was not intending to write this one so soon but after a shift that I can only describe as mental last night I felt that I should strike whilst the iron is hot. Yesterday I worked from 14:00 to 23:00 hrs in a custody suite that holds 16 prisoners. The building itself is old fashioned and does not have the luxury of intercom links between the cell and charge desk. Instead it has...

Custody Duties – A Response Officers View From The Other Side Of The Desk

Written by RSS Poster The Peel Blog on the 18th July 2012 at 13:26 - Posted in Police Blogs

I am a proactive member of my team. I like to harrass, terrorise and scare the living sh*t out of the criminals on my Division. That said I am fully aware that policing is not all about locking people up and that the role is about dealing with people in a respectful and dignified way, even those who to put it blunt deserve a bloody good slap! There are a few reasons for it, but I am for a short while working in the Custody Department and boy am I seeing this vital area of the service in a different...

Police & Community Relations – Part 1 – The Brixton Riots 1981

Written by RSS Poster The Peel Blog on the 13th July 2012 at 15:48 - Posted in Police Blogs

This is the first part of a staged Blog that I am writing covering community relations between the police and the communities that we serve. I have started with the Brixton Riots as feel that this was a very important mile stone in British history and the events of April 1981 can in some ways be linked to the recent rioting. I will be examining what happened, why it happened, the lessons learned and what has changed since then. I hope that the mixture of text and video interviews is informative and...

My Shift On 7th of July 2005

Written by RSS Poster The Peel Blog on the 08th July 2012 at 13:50 - Posted in Police Blogs

I woke up on the morning of 7/7. It was like any other day and I was due to give evidence in the local Magistrates Court for an assault I dealt with a few weeks before.I got up and got ready for work. I put my uniform on and went to the station as usual and got my kit on. I have spoken before about the unpredictability of a Police Officers work and 7/7 certainly reinforces that claim. NOTHING would prepare the Police for what would happen later that morning. I arrived at court and as per the building...
