Police: Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas, and a safe and peaceful New Year.

Spare a thought for those who have to work during the festive period and will be away from their families

(like me)

Happy Christmas

Police: Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire

Written by RSS Poster 200 Weeks

Twas the night before Christmas

Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house,
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.
The stockings were hung on the doorknobs with care,
But something was missing, my dad wasn’t there.

Out in the night parked under a star,
My Dad was there watching in his traffic car.
Now out in the snow, where nothing had stirred,
the radio crackled, the big engine purred.

Dad adjusted his cap and straightened his tie,
Got out of his vehicle and looked round the sky.
He turned up his collar and looked all around,
And listened so hard for that wonderful sound.

And sure enough soon through the cold winter night,
My Dad on patrol saw the wonderful sight.
There up in the distance so vivid and clear,
A light getting brighter it soon would be near.

He called on the radio “Tango-one-oh,
“I think I have contact out there in the snow.
“I’ve got him on mapping, it’s him there’s no doubt,
“I’m off the to R.V. point, Tango-ten, out!”

Dad jumped in the police car & looked to the sky,

Police: On the Russian Roads

Time for another road crash compilation….



Police: Dear Mr Cameron

Written by RSS Poster 200 Weeks

I thought I’d share this which is doing the rounds of Facebook….

Dear Mr Cameron,

Yesterday I was called out to an incident where an 80 year old man had fallen out of his bath seat and landed in the bath upside down. He was trapped and screaming for help with his legs trapped in the bath seat.

His neighbours heard him screaming and called 999. The doors and windows were locked and he was screaming in agony. I arrived, broke the door down and went into the bathroom to find a very scared elderly male laying naked, freezing cold trapped in his bath by a disability aid that was supposed to help him. He took one look at me and began to cry with relief.

We are so short of officers and resources on every shift that we are stretched to breaking point and already we are forced into saying no to some jobs that used to be graded prompt… such as this. At some point very soon we will be dealing with CRIME ONLY because 1) we are being told to keep the figures up and 2) we haven’t got the resources to deal with anything more.

There are serious arguments going on over...

Police: Another one down

Written by RSS Poster 200 Weeks

How much of this job is about attending domestics? For those who don’t know, a significant proportion of all jobs we attend are domestic disputes, most of these are between current or ex-partners.

Three Baldwin County (Alabama) Deputy Sheriffs attended an address last Friday. They approached 53-year-old Michael Jansen on his porch outside his house, to ascertain why the ‘family disturbance’ call had been made. As they did so, Jansen pulled out a gun and shot two of the officers, fatally wounding Deputy Scott Ward an critically injuring one of his colleagues.

The officers returned fire and killed Jansen. All officers were wearing bullet-proof vests.

The slain officer had 15 years’ service and was a US Coastguard Reserve having recently returned from deployment in Afghanistan.

Rest in Peace, brother.



Police: I love it when a plan comes together

Police: That was worth it, then

Written by RSS Poster 200 Weeks

The Police and Crime Commissioners election, what a farce.

How many of you exercised your democratic rights to vote? not many I’m guessing. I did, I went to the polling station. there were 6 staff there. I was the only one in there. I didn’t see anyone on the way in or the way out. The staff looked bored.

I spoiled my paper by leaving a choice message to the candidates on it.

It was an election that nobody called for, nobody was interested in, and practically nobody bothered about. I saw on the BBC News that it cost something like £100million. I have no idea of that’s true or not. I’m bloody sure, had they had the election in May with all the others, they’d have got a far higher turnout, and would have saved the country a packet. I’ve not heard why it was so important to have this election in the middle of November, unless it was to do with engineering a favourable list of suitably biased Commissioners for the government…

I do know someone who manned a polling station from 6.30am until 10.30pm, had 100 people voting out of an electoral roll of...

Police: It must be the week for it

Written by RSS Poster 200 Weeks

So soon after my last entry, we have another arsehole who got found out after posting a video of his exploits on YouTube.

Allan Staunton, aged 23, of Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire has just been jailed for animal cruelty after he posted a video online of him putting his ex-girlfriend’s cat in a tumble drier and turning it on three times. The cat survived the ordeal though it was injured. He later told RSPCA inspectors  that he thought the incident was funny, after YouTube visitors reported the video to them.

Staunton received 56 days at Her Majesty’s pleasure and was banned from keeping animals for life.
