Re: pay your respects

I know many colleagues who have volunteered to assist GMP...shows how the police family stands together. Very proud to be a member of that family now.

Re: special constable charged with posing as inspector

Here Here TO...seems they let a bad apple through.
Some of the specials I work with are brilliant and they support the teams well, others need a little more guidance...the one thing I've noticed they all have in common in my area is that they're willing to learn and ask all sorts of questions!

Re: Coat Washing

When I worked for HATO I used the philosophy of "well it's their system, so I'll do as I'm told, and if i the jacket isn't good enough then they can deal with it", clearly Bristol Uniforms were not good enough either by the posts here. It would seem that another "brilliant" idea from the civil servi...

Shell Advert

I think this rates as the best link I have sent this year, turn your volume up to full and enjoy ! (if you are a petrolhead) Here's a link to a Shell commercial shown in Europe. Ostensibly, they're selling petrol, but the cars used in the video steal the show. Ferrari pulled several of their race ca...

Re: And that's a wrap!

Not that I have to explain myself to anyone but I'll clear up some minor points for you all. 1. on leaving the HA, which is a total blessing, I WAS going to be working within the aerospace industry...and that was still the case on my last day of "service". There were significant complications which ...

Re: Army medics drafted in to keep NHS hospital running

Not too sure about the DM reporting here...but if this turns out to be true then it goes to show that reputation has as much to do with the NHS as the skill level of the staff...

Re: moving out of police stations and into shared facilities

I think it's a brilliant idea for the services to share facilities.
Mind you...I can't see the fire service being too happy about being woken up at all hours as their police colleagues rush out to immediates!

Here's the latest from BBC news: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-somerset-15606278 Horrific is all that comes to my mind when I see these pictures and my heart goes out to the families of those bereaved...may their family members rest in piece.

9/11 Boatlift with narration by Tom Hanks

Some of you may have seen this before but I hadn't and thought it was brilliant! Amazing that 500,000 people could be moved by boat from Manhatten Island in just 11 hours, following the collapse of the twin towers.

Re: New Vehicles for 2011

Some of the equipment really isn't up to standard in my opinion in the new vehicles, such as the VMS selector and the rear reds on the discos, but on the whole the equipment is in my opinion suitable. it's just a pity we're being hampered in our roles.
