Info meeded on alarm or incident responses

Post by Gopper » Fri Jan 28, 2011 12:51 pm

I wonder if anyone can help me. I am conducting a bit of research and putting together some data concerning the prison service and need the following information:

On an average how many alarm or incident responses occur in an average week in the different categories of prisons?

Also how long are landing officers on their feet during their shift and on an average how many stairs would the landing officer be expected to climb up and down?

Thanks for any help and info you can give me.

I'm not surprised that you finished your post by asking for help, I think you need it!! Unfortunately I'm not qualified.

Hey Gopper. Stairs are lots, and how long on our feet, well that depends on what kind of officer you are. There are many that can apparently run the landing from the tea room.... :slwh:

Will count the stairs when I get back to work. Thankyou for making my OCD worse :slbg: :slbg:

Alarm responses I guess are averaging out around 1 a day in a Cat B local

Hi Gopper

We have about 12 alarms (False and real) on average per week (Cat B Local), this is an increase of 100% compared to three years ago.

The landing staff have no where to sit whilst on the landing duties they are on their feet for the whole shift. The average amount of stair climbing is unmeasurable, it simple goes on all through the shift.

By The way Gopper, my father-in-law has just finished your book "Bang em Up" and remembers you from High Down. He said to tell you a great book written by one of the best Officer's he served with.

Hi gopper,

To your questions:

At ours we climb an uncountable amount of stairs, we are on our feet for an entire shift and have at least 1 (often more) alarm bell a day ( local cat B).

Now i need to apologise for flagrant plagerisim ( and poor spelling) as i've completely ripped off a line from your book when asked by prisoners how long i've been in the job never tell them 10 months but reply "all bloody day".

Cheers bud
