    He couldnt come tonight, I did ask him
  • falkorSat Mar 06, 2021 9:02 pm
    Thats just his choice of username, I think it actually comes from an old computer game, we're talking 20 years ago I think, has no significance BUT hes a jolly good bloke and a fine PCSO who knows JUDO (and uses it)
  • ade174Sat Mar 06, 2021 9:00 pm

  • ade174Sat Mar 06, 2021 8:55 pm
    Ya but when i was in the cadets it was a lot better now its all about the red tape and dot the i and cross the t to many snowflakes that run the place
  • falkorSat Mar 06, 2021 8:50 pm
    Acting warrant officer , Good one and the dyslexia didnt stop you did it? I think all these Cadets are very good for our young people and I do know that the Scouts have had a lot of trouble getting their scout leaders lately in fact some scout troops have FOLDED with no scout leaders to keep it going :sloop: which is horrendous
  • ade174Sat Mar 06, 2021 8:48 pm
    I used to be in the air cadets as an instructor acting warrant officer many years back
  • falkorSat Mar 06, 2021 8:45 pm
    Did you do any other volunteer work at all?
  • ade174Sat Mar 06, 2021 8:45 pm
    Ya will look into it when i get in will get settled
  • falkorSat Mar 06, 2021 8:40 pm
    Cor you are so lucky from age 11, that is amazing, I know that is a long time to wait but maybe you can help with the Police Cadets in your new role, it would be worth asking , especially as you are qualified in Karate, this could be of interest to the Cadet leaders :slbx:
  • ade174Sat Mar 06, 2021 8:38 pm

  • ade174Sat Mar 06, 2021 8:25 pm
    I think it all down to the force in the area up here in the north east its not that bad as to london but i think we need to be more equipped as we are still out on the front line all it take is to be in the wrong place if it kicks off and we have nothing to defend hour self am lucky as i do karate brown belt so i can look after my self and no not had the jab each to there own

    In 2017 in response to a FOI, this was published
    Dear Freedom of information, for the information provided. Can I ask you to clarify one point; In your response you state; "The decision to issue British Transport Police PCSOs with handcuffs... was made in view of the potential risk of detaining persons in proximity to railway lines and the need to keep a detained person safe pending the arrival of a police officer."
    BTP PCSOs have had handcuffs as standard issue for over 15 years
  • falkorSat Mar 06, 2021 8:14 pm
    Yeah I saw your thread on that, good one Ade

    No not see it but ive seen a lot of pcso get punched and hit and am in favor of all staff having the asp it is better to have and not use then not have and cant use it let the pcso do the community policing and let the police do what they are trained to do
