    Door staff receive Police commendation

    I clearly put accepting a caution is accepting you're guilty, yet there seems to be a parrot in the room. Probably a very small and old parrot, but still a parrot. Were you not just talking about telling a "7 ft Bouncer I'll get a step ladder and head butt you in the knees" ?

    Door staff receive Police commendation

    But the thing with a caution, never accept one, they will take your badge and you have accepted the charge, I have being through court cases because I wouldn't accept a caution, but was found innocent. Advice to new DS's would be to say nothing, accept nothing and never admit to striking or...

    Door staff receive Police commendation

    I understand Premier, everyone has their own opinions and their own experiences, I hated that police officer who sat outside waiting for us to do "something wrong" I ejected a 6 ft Traveller one night, I did all the right things "open palms, showing no aggression" etc etc, I removed him outside...

    Door staff receive Police commendation

    You cant judge the 'Whole Police Force" on individual officers. I agree, the police should be much more friendly to DS's, if we are doing our job right, we have the same goal, which is keeping people safe. But I have had good and bad experiences with Police Officers. I had a certain Police...

    Any knowledge of Professional Security?

    And for your info, im speaking from experience. The worst thing a company can do is not pay their staff, or pay them incorrectly. Which Professional have done on several occasions at venues in South Yorkshire. They promised a former colleague of mine a certain hourly rate, a month down the line...

    Door staff receive Police commendation

    But everything isn't as Black and White as the course makes out. If there is a police officer who needs a hand, they would get it, having a good relationship with the police is very helpful, especially when working in hostile areas. I have left the door many times to help the police, as well as...

    Door staff receive Police commendation

    Bit of a silly response from "Colonel" - having the police work with a door team, is much easier than having them work against you. Helping them out where you can, helps in the long run if you or your door team ever needs a hand. Stupid childish remarks like above, can make them feel a...

    Any knowledge of Professional Security?

    I've worked in the Industry over 10 years, keep your advice to people who want to hear it ''colonel'' - if speaking the truth means they are getting slagged off, then so be it. Don't try give your advice where its not wanted, Col. of what? If its anything but the Parachute regiment you need to...

    Any knowledge of Professional Security?

    Professional seem to be one of the worst, if not the worst company around. They are the reason we have had no wage increase for quite a while. They go to bars and will undercut the company there quite dramatically. Employing shirt fillers for minimum wage to do a DS shift. I know of several...

    The public, camera phones and your workplace!

    Technically its legal, but I would warn them that I don't want to be videoed, and that I don't give them the permission to do so. If they carried on I would remove the camera itself and either talk to them and make them leave. You're all saying "theres not much you can do" and "its perfectly...
