His Highness Blacker and his Privy Court

Avatar

Ollie in the usergroup ‘Administrators’

Yesterday I published an article about a gentleman by the name of Alan Blacker who has been making himself look like an utter moron in recent days.

In that article I talked about a company that Mr Blacker had created in 1999 called The Privy Arbital Court Service LimitedSince posting that article I have had an email from a reader who shared a website stored on webacrhive that appears to show…

The profession has had the pleasure of learning more about Dr. The Rt. Hon. The Lord Harley of Counsel KStJ. DPhil. Most of you will know of this fellow by now, he made a mockery of himself at a recent trial and its ripples have a lot further to travel yet.

Price tag of the PCC Association

Avatar

Ollie in the usergroup ‘Administrators’

Every now and again my interest is briefly ignited by things that don't really matter. This week, I was reminded of the complaints over ACPO's status as a limited company. Despite what the conspiracy theorists may say, there is nothing wrong, or suspicious, with ACPO being a limited company. Not every limited company is limited by shares, and ACPO is an ideal example of a company that needs a legal personality but is 'not for…

Ollie in the usergroup ‘Administrators’

Here are 3 documentaries that i think every police officer should be. They'll show how the actions of individuals can damage relations with the public, but they will also show a human side to policing.

National Crime Agency and their Special Constables

Avatar

Ollie in the usergroup ‘Administrators’

Today i was just casually browsing the website of the new National Crime Agency (NCA), as i so often do, and came across something that initially took me by surprise. The NCA has it's very own Special Constabulary, but it looks like they have a very different job to Specials you might be used to, and they may have struck gold!

The Paperless Office Exists: A Guide

Avatar

Ollie in the usergroup ‘Administrators’

This article has been significantly
updated since it was first published.
The last edit was 1800 , 4th March 2014

Part of this year's procrastination has taken the form of my commitment to finally going paperless. Credit for this has to go to DMU who have an aggressively (in a good way!) positive approach to sustainability which, had it not been so aggressive (again, in a good way!), i…

Avatar

Ollie in the usergroup ‘Administrators’

Hi Everyone,

Sorry my blog has slowed down in recent months. A combination of the demands of my 3rd year at uni, and the struggles i've shared with you [1][2], i've not been able to blog as much as i have done in the past.

This blog post is about Bluehost, the company that hosts this blog. Having been a customer of theirs for 7 years. Up until 'recently' the customer service has…

Checklists: Why cops need more of them

Avatar

Ollie in the usergroup ‘Administrators’

This is an article i have been meaning to write for at least a year, if not longer. The question i want to pose to the police service is; how can police checklists save lives?

Firstly, I want to make a distinction between two separate arguments here. The first regards the unnecessary and defensive bureaucracy that suffocates police officers and police staff alike. This is not what i am talking…

Why you should suffer in silence if you have a disability

Avatar

Ollie in the usergroup ‘Administrators’

The Equality Act of 2010 was a landmark piece of legislation that offered much improved protection to employees, and a much simpler piece of legislation for employers. Where we once had a rather patchwork legislative approach, we now have a one stop shop in the Equalities Act. I am a big fan of this piece of legislation and as a nation we ought to be proud of it. It introduced an expanded list of the types of discrimination, and called them 'protected characteristics', of which there are…

Cops on Camera

Avatar

Ollie in the usergroup ‘Administrators’

Police Officers spend a lot of time being filmed these days.
It generally shows us in a good light, but i think most cops have experienced a bit of brain freeze once they realise they are being filmed.

This video is such an example. In a nutshell the video is filmed by a passenger in a car and sees a police car drive through a red light. He then 'pulls them over' by racing up behind them and…

Personal Social Media: When Employers Cross the Line

Avatar

Ollie in the usergroup ‘Administrators’

I have written about the police use of social media many times in the past [1][2][3][4]. I have looked at it from a corporate point of view, and from a personal point of view. I've said before that my force generally has a really forward thinking approach to social media. If you spend a few hours with the new media team and you'll start to realise that the police social media revolution is well under way, it's something to be proud of. However a 'new media' team will generally only consist of a few people who, great though they are, can't be everywhere at once. Their job is, generally, to manage the corporate social media strategy. A job they do pretty well in my force and across the police community.
