    You too, it's been great, thanks!
  • falkorSat Dec 22, 2018 9:55 am
    True :slhi: well have a jolly good Christmas Lieutenant, it has been great to meet up again on this holy ancient Website, here's to a Happy New year !
  • Lieutenant fatmanSat Dec 22, 2018 9:54 am
    Yes, if anything, it would be good to send out a message to help as a deterrent
  • falkorSat Dec 22, 2018 9:53 am
    Dna spray is a great move, we need to nail em in court
  • falkorSat Dec 22, 2018 9:52 am
    Well got to give the Met credit, they have formed a specillay trained UNIT by George! to T bone the villains :slch2:
  • Lieutenant fatmanSat Dec 22, 2018 9:52 am
    They have rolled out training for dna sprays that can be used on riders now, which is interesting.
  • Lieutenant fatmanSat Dec 22, 2018 9:51 am
    True, always frustrtaing to see criminals get away, but not much you can do but go with it.
  • falkorSat Dec 22, 2018 9:48 am
    Haha and so what is your take on the Met reversing their previous position on taking on moped thieves? good decision? it can't be right that moped theives get away with it ( viewtopic.php?p=199406#p199406 )
  • Lieutenant fatmanSat Dec 22, 2018 9:48 am
    They were a very hot topic ten years ago but I don't think they're quite so bothered now.
  • falkorSat Dec 22, 2018 9:47 am
    Sure, the media love a story about PCSOs
  • Lieutenant fatmanSat Dec 22, 2018 9:46 am
    I think I recall seeing that video. But yes, if someone has been given fair warning and they have an open bottle, then most likely would, but I guess it always comes down to the specific circumstances
  • falkorSat Dec 22, 2018 9:43 am
    Yeah I saw that , nightmare but returning to PCSO topics, would you seize a homeless man's cider? ( viewtopic.php?f=6&t=19022 )
  • Lieutenant fatmanSat Dec 22, 2018 9:42 am
    Aye, and they reckon whoever it is could be up to 5 miles away
  • falkorSat Dec 22, 2018 9:41 am
    True, and the offender has chosen the hours of darkness to operate his drone, that is to his advantage
  • Lieutenant fatmanSat Dec 22, 2018 9:41 am
    Will be interesting to see if they catch the culprit
  • Lieutenant fatmanSat Dec 22, 2018 9:40 am
    I guess it's something they're not used to chasing
  • falkorSat Dec 22, 2018 9:39 am
    But 1 bloke is running rings round the whole of Gatwick, the Police helicopter chased 1 drone, lost it
  • Lieutenant fatmanSat Dec 22, 2018 9:39 am
    Yes, the theory seems to be whoever it is really knows what they're doing and is likely educated to phd level
  • falkorSat Dec 22, 2018 9:38 am
    Yeh love that, good little sound FX too
  • Lieutenant fatmanSat Dec 22, 2018 9:38 am
    Ah, nice feature!
  • falkorSat Dec 22, 2018 9:38 am
    You've got 1 bloke who has launched the same drone a dozen times, Police have no clue!!
  • falkorSat Dec 22, 2018 9:37 am
    Unbuilt? oh you mean inbuilt, click on the pencil to edit :)
  • Lieutenant fatmanSat Dec 22, 2018 9:36 am
    Apparently your standard drone has inbuilt software that stops it flying near an airport
  • Lieutenant fatmanSat Dec 22, 2018 9:36 am
    Oh yes, I was reading about that last night, what a nightmare, seems they're really struggling to tackle that situation
  • falkorSat Dec 22, 2018 9:35 am
    Well its gatwick, what the heck is going on? :slwoot:
  • Lieutenant fatmanSat Dec 22, 2018 9:34 am
    How's it going?
  • falkorSat Dec 22, 2018 9:33 am
    Morning Lieutenant !!
  • Lieutenant fatmanSat Dec 22, 2018 9:33 am
    Morning all!
  • Lieutenant fatmanSun Dec 31, 2017 10:34 am
    Well, there's a lot less money at the moment due to constant cuts so some hard decisions have to be made, only time will tell if the right ones are made. I do wonder if there are any right decisions though with the small amount of funding police services are getting. Will they be able to do the job effectively at this point, we shall see if it's possible.
  • falkorSun Dec 31, 2017 10:31 am
    :slex: wow what do you think about Norfolk?
  • falkorSun Dec 31, 2017 10:31 am
    Last month Norfolk Police announced plans to axe all 150 of its PCSOs. In response to a question about keeping them on if they agreed to take pay cuts he said: “If I had all the money in the world I would not hire more PCSOs.” He added: “We need more officers who can investigate, who can be moved around the county, who can be called on at short notice when duty demands. “And PCSOs, as valuable as they have been, don’t offer the flexibility and skills necessary to deal with 21s”.
  • Lieutenant fatmanSun Dec 31, 2017 10:31 am
    Well most of the publishers tend to play it safe and offer us the same thing over and over which often works out for them as many are creatures of habit. Independent developers tend to create games that are a lot more original and 'risky'. So for those who are bored of the same old thing and want something new, this is a good place to look and some of them have been very successful with this.
  • falkorSun Dec 31, 2017 10:28 am
    So how would an independent have a chance? reminds me of my Aunt who went ahead and self published her "book" when she could not find a publisher
  • Lieutenant fatmanSun Dec 31, 2017 10:28 am
    Remasters and remakes are very popular at the moment bringing back games from 10 or 20 years ago with a new lick of paint.
  • Lieutenant fatmanSun Dec 31, 2017 10:27 am
    Yep, games cost an absolute fortune to make these days, although the big sellers do fine of course.
  • falkorSun Dec 31, 2017 10:26 am
    Sounds like a battle alright, must be a lot of finances there that we don't appreciate
  • Lieutenant fatmanSun Dec 31, 2017 10:26 am
    I've been playing a game called Telltale that looks like it was designed for the Commodore 64. Graphics are not the strong point but it is a lot of fun. Interesting to see what developers create when they are independent and don't go through publishers.
  • falkorSun Dec 31, 2017 10:24 am
    Yeah I have been exploring Dungeons full blast, it has been amazing fun, any game special for you this Christmas?
  • Lieutenant fatmanSun Dec 31, 2017 10:22 am
    That's good right? More time for extra hobbies?
  • falkorSun Dec 31, 2017 10:22 am
    I don't think I've ever had so much time off with so few committments
  • Lieutenant fatmanSun Dec 31, 2017 10:21 am
    Yes, was good fun thanks, nice to have a bit of time off and chill out, how about you?
  • falkorSun Dec 31, 2017 10:20 am
    So did you have a great Christmas Lieutenant? :san:
  • Lieutenant fatmanSun Dec 31, 2017 10:19 am
    Cutting back on a bit of everything, less vehicles, a lot less buildings, less officers, less staff, etc etc.
  • falkorSun Dec 31, 2017 10:18 am
    This from you two years ago

    Certainly are some huge cuts coming, can't help but wonder how they'll save all that money.
    so now we know the answer? tablets instead of desk computers?
  • Lieutenant fatmanSun Dec 31, 2017 10:17 am
    Yes, done it quite a few times now, they do get upset, but it teaches them not to do it again.
  • falkorSun Dec 31, 2017 10:16 am
    I really think PCSOs can do some good work here, so your actions can lead to idiot scooter yobs having their vehicles seized for unsocial driving
  • Lieutenant fatmanSun Dec 31, 2017 10:15 am
    Yep, brilliant power, very effective. Drives the message home and stops most from doing it again.
  • falkorSun Dec 31, 2017 10:13 am
    Well is that the ones where it leads to a car being seized? e.g. bad driving, skidding?
  • Lieutenant fatmanSun Dec 31, 2017 10:13 am
    A little bit but they're somewhat similar amounts of paperwork. Section 59 warnings will always be the favourite of course.
  • falkorSun Dec 31, 2017 10:11 am
    Issuing tickets is a lot of hard work, even for PNDs, actually did you find the PND one more work than others?
