Police: Hillsborough: a Personal Perspective

Written by RSS Poster policecommander

 

Every last detail of the Hillsborough story breaks my heart – as a police officer; as a lifelong Liverpool supporter; as a human being.

As a human catastrophe, it is amongst the most vivid and terrible of my lifetime – in this country at least. It is the story of ninety-six people who went to see a football match and didn’t come home. It is the story of hundreds more who were injured; of thousands more who were there. And it is the story of a group of families faced with a kind of grief – drawn out over decades – that is beyond the experience or imagining of most of us.

As a British policing catastrophe, it is right down there amongst the worst of them. The headlines of recent days offer deeply uncomfortable reading for any police officer: evidence of individual deception and institutional collusion – compounded over years and perpetuated by the very people who are supposed to protect us.

Police: Locked Up

Written by RSS Poster Mental Health Cop

A man was arrested recently for an alleged offence after he went in to a large store brandishing some weapons that he’d improvised from household items and this included several razor blades.  Quite naturally, it led to a 999 call for the police to attended and contain the situation before any got hurt. The man was arrested and taken to the police station. After being seen by the Force Medical Examiner (FME) a full Mental Health Act (MHA) assessment was requested and after this was conducted the custody officer was informed that it was the intention to admit the man on a voluntary basis to the local mental health hospital. There was then some professional conflict between the custody sergeant and the professionals about how to resolve the incident, the sergeant feeling that the man shouldn’t be going anywhere on a voluntary basis, given what he felt were the risks of absconding or of the patient just changing his mind whilst travelling or upon arrival.

So a discussion broke out, can you ‘section’ someone so they are detained...
