Please don't ask the following

1. What force I work for?
2. Anything offensive or racist.

Background: I'm a new officer currently the first 12 months of a 24 months probation!

Have you ever "Let someone off with a warning"? If so, what was your favorite story that led to that decision? What influences you to make that call?

So you're still in training? I guess first 6 months or so.

How familiar are you with PACE?

Yes, a gentleman who had mud on his plate, I got to his window and he started getting all upset thinking I was pulling him for something that was on his record from years ago. I just felt really bad! Normally, if they are polite, the offence isn't serious, and they comply with my questions, they are far more likely to get let off!

No, we all have a "probation period" for 2 years. Basically before we can do our duties on our own!

Yes, so I do still patrol, do paperwork, all my standard duties etc, but I am shadowed/working with another officer all the time. We are constantly assessed through practical assessment.

Fairly okay with it, I kinda have to be, there is a lot to learn and a lot to take on, but you generally do start to learn more and more really quickly.

Yes, but I wasn't there for long because a more experienced unit took over. It was a girl threatening to stab herself with a needle.Very shocking and eye opening for me.

Well, time is a bit difficult to tell, but I will tell you my most recent day.

Woke up at 4pm, got to work 6pm finished 6am.

Normally it depends, on weekends I do a lot of drunk and disorderly calls, in the weak, more mental health and domestic abuse. After any arrest there is always paperwork, so I spent a lot of time filling reports!

She ended up being sectioned I believe, probably the best outcome for her.

And honestly, you weren't wasting police time. It's our job to make sure people are okay, we have a duty of care. People become police because they want to help, no matter how big or how small, we are always there.

Haha, maybe! If it was raining or snowing, probably, but if it was decent weather, maybe not, because most people do 80 anyway.
