So like yea, I have been working Friday and Saturday on late turn prisoner duty, dealing with the post arrest of response officers, Its not one of the most favorite aspect of police work however I do enjoy the interviews and investigation of offences and offenders.
This weekend however has been a nightmare.
A break down of the work I had to deal with my fellow mukka had
Friday Night 1600 hours to 0400
9 arrests for ABH * ( 3 linked to same incident )
4 arrests for affray
6 arrests for drunk & disorderly
19 prisoner to deal with
On Saturday night 1600 hours to 0400
5 arrests for serious public disorder ( all related)
2 arrests for points and blades
3 arrests for Offensive weapons
another 6 Drunk & disorderly
3 arrests section 5 public order
2 arrests possession of controlled substances
and 1 for theft
As a result of this as you can quickly work out working weekend on end you up while quite a workload to get shifted before the next weekend on ( 4 weeks rota )
Interviews,statements,CCTV enquires,medical statements, photos, background and intelligence checks let alone any housing office or partnership involvement !
Suffice to say it was manic did niggle me was this simple fact.
Alcohol played a part in every single one of these arrests, while none are what would be considered major it was apparant of the role of drink.
Are we going in the right step in 24 hour drinking, I await to see the results.
Oh and spare a thought for the A&E doctors and nurses that often get the dirty end of the stick with these things.
