You might have heard on various social media chat groups that you are ‘allowed’ to demand that a police officer hand over his beat helmet (female officers wear hats) if you are pregnant and are in desperate need of a wee whilst out-and-about…
Or, if you are a police officer, then chances are that, at some point, you have been asked this question by an inquisitive member of the public or by the partner of a pregnant lady who needs to empty her bladder.
During my own time on the #ThinBlueLine I can recall being asked this very question several times….
If you don’t believe that people would actually ask to pee in a police officers beat helmet, then just type the first few words of the question into Google and it will reveal the full question being automatically filled in before you have even finished typing the sentence!
So clearly, a lot of people think that pregnant women can indeed demand that a police officer removes his helmet so that it can be filled with the urine of a pregnant lady…
A little bit of research online, even reveals people talking about this subject in chat rooms!
The screen grab below was found on The Guardian’s website:
‘I read recently that a pregnant woman has the legal right to urinate in a policeman’s helmet. However, at this year’s Notting Hill carnival all officers refused my girlfriend this honour. On what grounds can they refuse such a request? – P Saville, London’
In short, NO! You cannot urinate in a police officers beat helmet! So please don’t ask as the answer will probably be ‘no’….
Even if the police officer, for whatever reason, did hand over his beat helmet so that you can urinate into it, then he would probably get ‘stuck on’ by someone looking for the appropriate ‘sticking on’ evidence needed in order to get promotion….
