Late one (Times two)

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

22 !

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.

was it any worse thatn a usual pre-christmas weekend though? has 24 hour drinking made a difference?

I personaly feel that the olny difference it made was that people just left there home/work later to go to thepub and as a consiqence drank just as quick to the closing time. There are no 24 hours pubs where I work they just closed a few hours later in the night.

Used to have a nice quite period from about 3am to 6 am. Not any more.
