Re: PAYMENT PLUS AND TOIL

Well like many on here - our nick relies on the PP whores like myself to keep the establishment running. We are already over 20 officers down and if you take the PP out and the numbers that do it then the detail office are going to have real problems. We are already having problems getting ad-hoc le...

Re: eu legislation equal pay 2011

Not all Officers will be on the same pay, there will be a few increments but not as many. Probably 3 or 4. I was told today by one of our POA reps that we woul all go to the same pay in 2011, I cannot see how new legislation would allow for any increments at all. I hope it does mean that I get a gr...

Re: Extras-wanted-for-prison-drama

Did first day filming yesterday. It was really interesting seeing how a film is made and also the inside of the, now used for council file storage, Scarborough Prison. Lots of naughty words in the script that couldn't possibly be repeated on a site such as this. The lighting in the prison should ma...

Re: should all mobile phones in prisons be BLOCKED?

I cannot see how anybody would not see the advantage of blocking Mobile phones in the establishments. It would cut down on smuggling stuff in and getting there drugs in and just about any dodgy dealings at all. I mean what can they do on a mobile that is not restricted or they would use the pin phon...

Re: Dress Uniform/Number Ones

Prison service - unfortunately was not in any of the armed services (not for the lack of trying, had a slight issue with my back that kept me out - which is odd as I have never suffered at all from it). So yep a set of Prison Service number ones - I know it could be hard to come across as they stopp...

Dress Uniform/Number Ones

Hi all, I wouldn't mind getting my hands on a set of Number Ones - I have looked on flea-bay and have put a search in google to look for second hand uniform but seem to be getting no joy.
