This is the official blog of ex-Sgt Ellie Bloggs. I was a real live police constable then sergeant for twelve years, on the real live front line of England. I'm now a real live non-police person. All the facts I recount are true, and are not secrets. If they don't want me blogging about it, they shouldn't do it. PS If you don't pay tax, you don't (or didn't) pay my salary.

PC Bloggs Investigates... PDRs:

There might be some people out there wondering how we police are trained, developed and monitored. There might be some police officers wondering the same thing. The answer lies, as with most things in the police, in the PDR. You may be trying to guess what this stands for. Do not bother: nobody will be able to tell you whether or not you are right because nobody knows.

The PDR is a folder, computer programme or scrap of paper where police officers record how much the force objectives and strategic policy means to them. It follows them around for their whole career and is equivalent to a personnel record. It is worth mentioning that police officers also have a personnel record, which is equivalent to a dusty shelf in an archive.

The purpose of the PDR is threefold:
  • It gives police officers something to do when there's no crime happening.
  • It involves police officers in the excitement of the tax year.
  • It enables police officers to demonstrate that they should not be fired no matter what they do.
If a sergeant wants to fire someone, they have to spend about a year putting negative reports into their PDR. Every time the person does something right, their sergeant has to start the process again. Police officers can appeal against negative remarks and unless the sergeant wants to attend a meeting - which I can assure you, they do not - they will change the remarks to positive ones.

The public think that shoddy police officers are kept in their job because police forces are institutionally racist, hate civilians and think they can prance around doing as they please. The real reason is PDRs.

Got my PDR review coming up in the next couple of weeks. The joy!
Fortunately my sarge is a top bloke and will say nice things about me (I hope).

My PDR is about to be written by my brand new sergeant who I have spoken with a couple of times but never actually worked with... at all. I am currently attached to another team but still on my original teams books. I think I will write it myself and have him sign it as being his views on me- that should do the trick.

We have them in the NHS too.

This is why shit nurses keep their jobs - because all the stuff they're shit at (ie nursing) wasn't identified in their last PDR.

If you didn't laugh you'd cry.

We have them as well.
My last one was done by a line manager that I had worked to for 3 weeks, and she was on leave for 2 of those.
Went well, I told her how fab I was, and she wrote it down!

Arrgg we have them too, They are useful if you need to identify a course you need to go, as long as you plan it 2 years in advance.

My gaffer has us write out a Mini-PDR every month, saying what we thought went well, what have we done towards our personal and team PDR objectives and how many DNA and Fingerprint Hits we have, which are then put onto a nice graph and displayed in the office.

Other than the stats I leave the rest blank, until such time as it's usefulness is explained to me. Load of old cock!

euakgefIn the mid 1990's I went undetected for nearly 5 years without having a PDR mainly because supervisors came and went as frequently as the rain. In the end a newly qualified Sgt decided that I really should get it done, so he told me to sit down, write it and then we would discuss it. I did, at home, as no time at work and submitted it to him. He then treated me to a coffee in the canteen and we had our first proper conversation during which I think I found out more about him than he did me. Well that PDR strangely enough formed the basis of each of the ones that followed til I retired. I don't think anyone ever took them seriously. I didn't.

I am so lucky. I am an at will employee of a boss who despises paper work. So, since he's the sole evaluator, all I have to do is keep him pleased with my performance. Or, better yet, unaware that I exist. (No complaints = invisibility.)

Anon, how refreshing to see you admit how stupid & invalid your comments are. They do say that admitting your problem is the first step on the path to recovery, do let us know how you're getting on won't you? And well done for taking that first step!
