I'm old, white & male...My views are thus irrelevant... I used to be a police officer...But as I'm no longer my views on policing are invalid...

This is a very distinctive bit of kit .. Even in London must be easy to spot.

Itโ€™s not (just) the trauma and stress of police work - international research indicates thatโ€™s exacerbate by organisational culture and response to the impact of the work they ask officers to do.

It is a well known fact... For decades the behaviour of criminals and thugs has been defended, mitigated & dismissed because they had suffered trauma & stress in earlier life..m But the same approach has never been routinely applied to police accused of misconduct..m ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜

In my case 2 years foot patrol gave me SOME life experience. Even after 30 years in the police the evil, dishonesty and cruel wickedness of some still appalled me. Even at the end horror out did horror.

(a) he was required to leave because of his behaviour and attitude, (b) h wasn't "frog marched" at all, was he and (c) just because he is disabled doesn't mean he can't be a total fuckwit... ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„

Interesting 20min piece on how trauma & stress of police work impacts on brain chemistry of officers & pushes "good" cops towards "bad"... Bosses ( & should make sure they get a full understanding of this!

As you say... Desperation... They may not be on the streets until 18+ but it is going to be up to 18mths payment for a non operational cop, not even with any opportunity for on-street training... And no doubt will form part of overall probation period...

Just had a call from my Super (We are both now on rest days) checking how I am after going to a fatal RTC and doing CPR on numerous people. A quick 5 minute chat, particularly on his day off, has meant the world. Little gesture which has gone a long way. Quality leadership ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป
