AID

As the silly season continues, so our Aid requirement grows.
Police Officers throughout the UK will no doubt be very familiar with the idea of Aid warnings. The basic premise is that when the Farce you work for has an operation on that a normal division cannot handle, officers are pulled in from various places and departments to help out.

This can be in the form of going 'down Londontown' for some yellow jacket reassurance, policing protests, funkily named operations or - more often than not - sporting events such as football.
What this mens is that you get the dreaded email and discover that once again you have lost your rest day so you can spend it babysitting various groups around London. No, before you ask, there is no overtime available.

As a public order trained officer, it means a lot of time travelling around the Met in a battered public order carrier with a vanload of officers, all carrying a kitbag full of robocop gear that smells slightly of mustiness and sweat.

So a plea, from me and the rest of my carrier if the people in charge of operational feeding are reading this: Cabbage? You feed nine officers who will be spending the next ten plus hours trapped in an air tight carrier cabbage!?
Seriously now. Never again.

Maybe you should all jump out, then stuff the troublemakers in the van and close the doors. Ten minutes should have them begging for mercy!

That would be WELL against their human rights, the bizarre mix of stale sweat and Job sandwiches is not a smell for the unprepared.

HONOURABLE RESPONSE TO COWARDLY THREAT, 'AREA TRACE NO SEARCH'

Recent events unfold deep hostility of a very disaffected public towards Gestapo methods of an out-of-control police. Successive governments have mistakenly allowed the proliferation of bullies within this public service. The middle class stood by, merely tutting here and there but rules are changing.

There will be no formal announcement of the inevitable police cleansing. Those Chief officers shielding the likes of Gadget, Bloggs and 200 will face the axe themselves. This will begin closure of the UK’s maverick police blogs and herald the creation of the working relationship between police and public, expected within a democracy.

Every rogue police officer who abused position in any way, or assisted corrupt colleagues to evade justice, or stirred hatred on a blog with cowardly anonymity, will be identified. UK Citizens have the moral right to this information and every moral right to reject by any means if necessary, a State Police growing ever more maniacal.

So MTG wishes to abolish freedom of speech for everyone that doesn't agree with him?

How telling.

I don't think Dr Melvin has thought as deeply as that, anon. I suspect that he is hoping to get a rise out of our gracious host and humble narrator in order to somehow "embarrass" him.

It won't work - Mr No Search has had to deal with far more irritating people than Dr Melvin.

Volatile things, public order vans. Picture the scene, M1 sliproad on Notts/Derby border, 1983. Vanload of Met on flying picket persecution duty. The Deputy Chief Constable of Derbyshire stops his staff car and pokes his head into the vanload of guffing card sharps. "Who's in charge here"? No reply. "I said, who's in charge here"? A fart is heard. "Do you know who I am"??? A reply from the back, at last. "`Ere, there's some c**t in `ere doesn't know `oo he his". Exit DCC.

One of the most loathsome postings I have seen on a police blog, complete with graphic horror of death, appeared today on 200 Weeks.
“HE WON’T DO THAT AGAIN” is the scoffing comment from one very sick policeman.

I know Melvyn.... I too find the news that those there to protect society may suffer from flatulance shocking too. I dare say professional standards will be horrified by Area breaking this story. A clear abuse of his position me thinks.
Right, off to see what is so shocking on 200 weeks. Hope it makes me laugh as much as area has. Mmmwwwaaaahh.

Sad news - my final roll of "Ive met the met" stickers is running out. It must now be preserved so future generations can savour its greatness on special occasions.

However, i have recently been shown "the next big thing".

"Ive met PCSO steve" stickers.

Must. Get. Some.

I seem to remember a mate telling me that they had been rotated out of a particularly messy public order deployment for a few hours and got the curries in (the team was staffed by only just ex-probies mostly).

Cue 4 hours sat in a van trying to ignore the curried scent on the air...
