I agree with Gforce, but such agreement comes only with many years of police experienceGforceuk wrote:Thats way too extreme. I've dealt with a guy as high as a kite running away from an assault , i managed to get hold of him and corner him as response arrived and the last thing on anyones mind was discipline.
you will not be sacked for making an arrest in the correct circumstances... or any for that matter.. as long as you dont assualt them or anything lol.
a person without that large amount of "experience," is very likely not to "see" that what Gforce is saying, is in fact true - because of the theoretical situation re actual powers of arrest/ role definition
no doubt we will still be arguing this discipline v duty scenario until doomsday, it just will never be resolved
