CID Night duty, Now Don't assume the worst, I have covered CID night duty before however , up until now I was the skivvy bag boy running around after the DC / TDC .
The time of heady responsibility now looms over my head , as I embark on a 7 Night week of night duty of 10pm to 6am in South London with a brand new shiny PC who has come upstairs , bright eyed and bushy tailed as I once did.
Now I am the lead, the one who has to advise and direct a duty officer who probably has seen it all a thousand times before.
I sit here awake far to early , wondering if I have all the pens and pencils I will need, woolly hat - check. Cuppa soups, tea,coffee & sugar supplies I secured yesterday on a normal weekend on shift.
Its the 5th of November , I know it will be busy , I know it will in all likely hood be controlled chaos . I just hope I do not come across a complete idiot , I kinda like this job.
Wish me luck and don't say the Q word.
