You what now...
When I joined up two years ago and started my training in Hendon I remember a tutor telling me not to worry to much about studying and getting stuff learned off by heart in regard to police powers and only worry about the actual law stuff (you know what is robbery , theft etc) He said they change like the wind.
Well hello the Serious Organised Crime and Police Act 2005 and in particular good bye to section 25 of pace and greetings to Code G ! I have been reading these new changes and at first glance it all seems good.
I though I would do this quick first post now - I will have a longer debate about these changes to powers of arrest and search.
What I will say is these are "supposed" to come into effect from midnight of the 31st of December 2005.
So where is the training ? Hello >
