    Carrying a torch when working.............

    Been a while since I last posted. Merseyside Police are in the process of (or about to start) providing torches to DS in Liverpool city centre which are fitted with a filter that highlights traces of coke when shone on someones face.

    Job refused

    Interesting point about the media aspect, thats how I took the company policy about not using DS licence holders. It may be their policy or a condition of the contract they have and the clients specifications. Valid point about the training differences between DS and SG, may be the answer is...

    Job refused

    I've read a few posts on here about CP licence holders being turned down for work (DS) and thought that will never happen to me. Well sods law struck, applied for a job, the company was happy at the interview stage, no problems with my quals or experience. Produced my licence as part of the...

    CS spray question

    Sabre You're bang on the money, it is covered by the Firearms Act. So Mattlock44, take our advice, stay clear, otherwise you'll be spending time with HMP. Billy

    Which path to take and how?

    'hollisio' If you're really interested in going down the route of being a Special Con to become a reg PC. Be aware if/when you join, you are barred from doing any security work as its a conflict of interest. As for joining HM Customs and Excise, that hasn't existed for a while now!. HM...

    getting into the industry

    'Doorman1988' I see you've asked the same question in both the DS, CCTV and Security Guard forum. There's no easy answer to getting into any employment sector. Its a case of having the skills the employers want and being in the right place at the right time. If you have your DS badge you...

    A Walt story

    I can imagine the details on their CVs don't match their claims on CPW. Billy

    What a joke

    I can top, that down my way (some) security firms are paying the bare minimum of £5.93 per hr. As for DS, I've started seeing more and more single man doors. Billy

    Warning for Operators on Facebook

    Talking of facebook I was in a pub recently and I overheard a conversation, from the info I heard I've been able to ID a member of CPW. Thing is this 'guy' I've managed to ID wasn't even there. From what I heard it was one of his mates talking about him to a woman trying to make out that...

    Info on Sec Management Courses wanted?

    The course's your have mentioned, have been written about before in various threads. I've opted to study at my local uni, for a criminology degree. Been there almost 2 weeks. Went to a lecture the other day and I kid you not, there must have been almost 300 students crammed into the lecture. I...

    Should the SIA be axed?

    I've voted the SIA should be axed (then replaced in my opinion). However I do believe that with regards to DS and SG there should still be some form of control to maintain standards in terms of training and CRB checks. As for CP I don't work in that area so I can't say what 'they' need to...

    Police give away badge number.

    That info regarding the police not having to give their name is wrong. When police do a stop and search they are required to give their name, collar number and station. The only time a number only, is given; is when the matter is an anti-terrorism operation/offence. Any police on here will...
