We have seen a leaked Memo that has suggested using individuals convicted of assaulting emergency services and health care staff as ‘real life’ victims in emergency services training exercises. Allegedly, the plans include, but are not limited to, strapping the convicts into clapped out vehicles in order to create ‘real life’ Road Traffic Collision scenarios.
Our secret informant, who wishes to remain anonymous, said: “some renegade members of Senior Management have written to Politicians asking them for permission to use individuals convicted of assaulting emergency services and health care sector staff, as ‘real life’ mass casualty event victims”. Our informant went on to state: “rather than lock these people up, using them in training scenarios such as RTC [Road Traffic Collision] exercises makes good sense”.
We have read the Memo, and it makes for an interesting read. By the sounds of it, rather than being sent to prison, convicts are going to be sent straight to a new central training centre (built by convicted criminals, and paid for by assets seized from such criminals) where they will be used in various ‘real life’ emergency services training scenarios which will include, but will not be limited to, Road Traffic Collision exercises.
Before people start kicking off, there has already been an exclusion written into the plans that will mean individuals with mental health issues are NOT to be included. However, anyone convicted in a Criminal Court will be ‘fair game’.
Our anonymous informant added: “the possibilities are endless. I can see those convicted of assaulting our brave emergency services being used as ‘real life’ casualties in a number of different scenarios where previously, sub-standard actors have been used in order to try and recreate ‘realistic’ events such as multi-vehicle RTC’s”.
The draft proposals include setting out the parameters in relation to what kind of incident the convict would be used for. For example, anyone convicted of Grievous Bodily Harm against an Oppo will be used for more ‘extreme’ scenarios such as incidents involving NBCD (Nuclear, Biological & Chemical Defence) factors.
Whereas those convicted of charges such as Common Assault would be used by Police Dog Handlers for ‘search’ training exercises. One of our Police Dog Handler sources responded to the proposal by stating: “at a time when it’s getting harder to find volunteers to be used as suspects for our General Purpose Dogs during training exercises, this plan would be a great help. Hunting down those convicted of assaulting emergency services personnel across open fields will be a great training exercise for our fury missiles – I can really feel their [Police Dogs] excitement”.
We have an EXCLUSIVE copy of the leaked Memo, and will be publishing it in the next issue of our subscriber only Digital Magazine (due out on 22nd December at 15:00 GMT). If you haven’t subscribed to our publication yet, then sign up by clicking here —>
