After years on the streets gaining vital experience (unless you are a direct entry detective of course) and having spent too much money on that tailor-fitted suit, then a newly qualified detective is often as keen as mustard to get to that first ‘proper’ job.
Often, upon arrival at the scene of the ‘proper job’, then the newly qualified DC’s note pad will have the same kind of effect as the Hammer of Thor.
The air of authority is pungent as various instructions, ‘orders’ and directions are given to the gaggle of response team officers who are hoping that, at the very least, no crime scene or hospital guard will be needed.
However, the aforementioned example of a newly-qualified DC arriving on scene is perhaps a bit ‘fancy’ and, in reality, things do not often ‘pan out’ like that.
So instead, we are sharing this short video with you that was brought to our attention by one of our followers.
Having watched the video a number of times, we can confirm that it does indeed paint a true picture of a ‘real world’ policing scenario…

Before you go...
We need your help. As former emergency services & armed forces personnel, we pride ourselves on bringing you important, fast-moving and breaking news stories which are free from the negative bias which is often directed at the emergency services by some sections of the mainstream media.
One of the reasons we started 'Emergency Services News' was because we became tired of reading badly informed stories about the emergency services which seemed only ever to highlight negative aspects of the job.
We want to be the unheard voice of the remarkable men and women who serve in the emergency services, NHS and armed forces. And with around 500k page views each month, we are getting there!
As income from ads, the mainstay source of income for most publishers, continues to decline; we need the help of our readers.
And remember, if you have a service, product or job vacancy that you would like to promote to our large readership, then you can buy advertising space in our articles.
You can support emergency services news from as little as £1. It only takes a minute. Every contribution, however big or small, is vital for our future.
Please help us to continue to highlight the life-saving work of the emergency services, NHS and armed forces by becoming a supporter.
