Blandshire Constabulary is Watching You...

Remember these? Several forces have now trialled the wearing of head-cams and I hear on the news today that it may become standard national issue for police to run around with cameras installed on their heads.

I support this scheme whole-heartedly. You can never monitor the activities of front-line police too closely. Given half a chance, we are all racist thugs waiting to strike.

These cams will apparently reduce the number of substantiated complaints against police too, as we will be able to record our gentleness and polite language to the delightful persons we encounter. As you can see, they are for our own good and should soon be worn proudly by every member of Blandshire Constabulary. For one thing, it will mean we will have to start wearing our hats.

Let us embrace this new era of police accountability.

I breathlessly await the announcement that crime-recording staff and senior management will be wearing the cams as they go about their day-to-day activities...

a good suggestion... if the office jockeys wore them too, we could see how many hours a day we can actually pay them for! Or better still, if we iss anything on TV we can watch the replay of their headcams!
But can you imagine how polite we are going to be, knowing how we are on tape.
"Yes sir, I apreciate my parentage maybe of questionable origin to you because of your current predicament, but if you would be so kind as to acompany me to the van, yes sir, I often fornicate with illigitamate whores, how very kind of you to notice, No sir, I wasn't aware of my similarity to a womans sexual organs, thankyou for pointing that out! ooops... I appear to have run out of video tape......." Game on.

The flip side is, If we start holding all this video evidence on our person, will we become even more of a target?, instead of gangs running away from us, they may want to chase us to remove our incriminating evidence. Its easy to call us liars in court, especially nowadays, but the camera seldom lies! How many will think assaulting an officer to retrieve the tape is worth the risk?
Standby is all I can say!

I remember well.

However, I see (sic) that it's just English and Welsh Constabularies that have been given the go ahead.

The only real advantage, apart from using it to spy on police, is reducing the amount of contests, and thus court appearances for officers. It doesn't save you any work on the file, in fact its an extra bit of hassle to go o the 9-5er to get the digital video put on vhs taps for the PPS/CPS.

I saw one once, that a neighbourhood poilce officer had been given to test. He never took it out with him. At least you could get some good clips for the xmas party from it.

ANOTHER CRAP IDEA - "officer do you have helmet cam footage of this incident" A "no sir (and adds a quite reasonable reason)" - case dismissed re lack of video .... as for the officer from Plymouth??? on the BBC who thought they were a good idea !!!!!!!!!, Good idea and entry for PDR, 3 pips or some other diversity empowerment to deal with DV .....CUTS BACK TO BBC news item ..... the real problem as per the clip "it's coz i luv him" ...........

I think you're being unnecessarily antagonistic to what could be a very positive idea.

For a start, there _has_ to be a way for officers to turn the cameras off (for pee breaks or beating up scrotes in the cells) {joke!, just a joke!}.

There have been experiments with overt videoing (telling the scrotes they were being filmed) in South London, and they worked well. Even hardened scrotes tend to misbehave less when they know they are being watched by a PC _and_ filmed for later proof.

This lets a lone PC get enough evidence for a succesful prosecution in what would otherwise be, in the CPS's eyes, a NFA "his word/ your word" case.

The _hope_ is that a lot of the form filling (e.g. on stop and searches) can be replaced by the record made by the camera.

And, less certainly, it MIGHT reduce attacks on lone PCs - as the camera will gather evidence that a person might miss in the heat of the moment.

I just paid a few quid of my own money for a very similar camera, to wear on my motorycle crash helmet - to see if I can record some of London's crazier driving. I can't see as how havign one makes matetrs worse, and it might make things better.

At least let the experiment run its course before slagging it off...

Oh, bugger, someone nicked the YouTube quip....AND took a dig at the Scots too. Doesn't leave me with a lot.

Way I see it, if it can be recorded, it can be edited in all sorts of amusing ways, the Benny Hill tune laid over it, and played on laptops at PCWorld.

Before you know, it'll spawn all over the net, and dot-pcam will will be serious competition for dot-xxx and dot-chav.

I can here down at my local WMC now,"Psst - do you want some dodgy Pcvid? "

Sorry, that's supposed to read :-

Dodgy editing. (cough!)

See! I avoided dodgy 'head' cam jokes :)

We have been using them for a couple of years now and there are pros and cons.
They are a little uncomfortable and cumbersome in a foot-chase and sometimes get damaged. And if you wear an earpiece that has a piece of plastic over the top of your ear it can be a little painful to wear. But a video of a drunk violent male assaulting a police officer tells a thousand words.

I can see that there might be some advantages to it re evidence gathering and so on but let's face it, it's going to make you all look a bunch of complete dorks isn't it?

You are hardly expected to have it on at all times. Surely it's to be used a the discretion of the officer.

'Hello Mr Drunk person, please move along'

'Nahhhh f@*k off Pig scum'

'Ok Sir I'm about turn my headcam on, and I will ask you again.'

'Of course constable, I have had enough fermented fruit for this evening and I shall retire to my quarters post haste! toodle pip'

I am old enough to remember the first custody suite camera installed at the main nick of my force. Much the same attitude as yours was the reaction of most officers.
It soon became apparent that the camera was the officer's best friend when some battling berk was brought in and started making complaints about being beaten up in the custody suite. Being a busy chap, the custody suite camera saved me many a discipline hearing.
Unfortunately, given the standard of professionalism of many of today's officers, I can see why they might not be happy having their every action available for subsequent review. I mean, having to remember the caution, telling someone an actual reason for arrest, cutting out the sarky comments and unjustified threats of arrest. The job's simply no fun any more.

I would ****ing hate to wear one of those things and I can see that lack of headcam evidence will become another reason for cps to nfa.

We have them at my one really wants to wear them, BUT....if you are wearing the camera, you're not the one being fimed at the other end. I had to review one headcam tape re a nightclub fight. It was uncannily like prodigy's smack my bitch up video, just without the strippers.

I love the idea that they're the answer to domestic violence.
I'm not sure how we'll be any better off because I've got a video of Kylee telling me that Darron has banged on the door till she let him in, pushed her onto the sofa whilst calling her and her family rude names and stormed out long before I arrived.
I'm trying to think of a situation when I could have recorded useful video evidence at a domestic that couldn't be covered with a statement or stills camera and I can't.

Maybe this will help you understand the lack of dsicipline, why it is happening....and who is encouraging it.

During the 50’s 60’s the Minority communist Parties of Europe
decided to subvert the West...............................from within

Promoting that which will destroy unity within Society, desteroying it’s christian faith, Fragmenting Family, promoting homosexuality, in schools, the church, the armed forces.radical feminism.
Mass immigration of dissaparate cultures, encouraging peopler to move around, destroying cultural identities, borders,creating racial tension, supressing the wishes of the indigenous populations,promotuing heavy drinking, the Smacking ban, taking away parents rights to control and discipline ther cghildren,with the Ultimate aim to destroy the society from within,fragment it with homosexuality, feminism,marginalise and ultimately wipe out the Indigenous populations of Europe and their Faith in preparationm for a New Majority population with a new religeon.

This is aided and abetted by a state controlled medias….repeatedly denigrating its population, often in favour of other cultures, Politcal correct, newsreporting, Only reporting White crime etc, whilst ignoring the crimes commited by immigration as the Govt secretly floods the Host Country(s) without checks as to who they are letting in nor the consequences to society. Repeatedly showing White Offenders in the Front Pages of Newspapaers, whilst relegating crimes commited by others to the middle pages of only local new, Repeatedly over a period of 40yrs denigrating your own populations in favour of others.....

Former MP Keith Black.......Immigrants make better citizens than the British'.

Ken Livingstone......'Muslims are less likely to be violent than non Muslims..

Jack Straw....'The British are not worth savinig as a race'.

Promoting 24 hr Drinking, The smacking ban so parents are unable to impose control and discipline on their children then publishing in Newspapers what a drunken disorderly culture we are.......drunken, disorderly, paedophikles, murderers......Imagine what repeatedly being told that for 40 yrs courl do to a Society....that is why we repeatedly see articles about Ian Huntley in the Papers.....SO we can look at the British man....and all hate ourselves again, and again, and again, and again.....

Think about it what has made the Papers over the Past Years...

Peter Sutcliffe, Fred West, Ian Huntley, Ian Brady, The Black Panther, the Dunblane Massacre. Michael Barrymore, Beverly Allet, Dr Shipman.....

We are being Brainwashed......its going on al over Europe too....

The Ultimate aim being to sap the strength, morality out of the host nation causing them to submit to a replacement populatiopn as they believe more and more they are worthless......THe Ultimate aim being to wipe out the Indigenous Populations of Europe and create a new Population,.............of 'Europeans' ....Being a Secular society....the faith of the New EU irrelevant......except in that it wil actively fragmebnt the host religion, by promoting unpopular changes, tio fragment the faith.....Women Bishops, Homosexuality etc etc.....

Does all this make sense now.....This country is being taken apart bit by bit...

The Frankfurt School of subversion.
The techniques are broadly based on the Frankfurt School, the University department bought by the Soviet Union in 1935. The Soviets asked it for the best methods of undermining other nations so it could bring them under its control. The EU has been implementing these techniques in Britain since the early 1960’s.

The Frankfurt school recommends political correctness, the teaching of sex and homosexuality to children, the creation of racialism offences, continual change to create confusion, the undermining of schools and teachers’ authority, the promotion of excessive drinking, emptying the churches, an unreliable legal sytem with bias against the victim, dependency on the state or benefits, huge immigration to destroy identity, control and dumming down of media and TV, the attack on fathers and the breakdown of the family, and other methods, the results of which we are now all too familiar with.

Political Correctness is a form of mind control to control free speech, to undermine public opinion, to weaken the defences of democracy and to ‘re-educate’ schoolchildren; it is a well documented communist subversion procedure.

These techniques have been remarkably successful at undermining local and national government, the Police, NHS, schools and children. It has alienated British people from our nation and its politics; millions are now disinterested and apathetic. On 13th Feb. 2007 UNICEF reported British children now have the worst upbringing of the 21 top nations.

Great country, up to us to keep it great. Freedom of thought is a good start. Thank you to all contributors, it's not easy in this present climate to voice an opinion that you honestly believe in. Speak out for what you believe, of course you will be going against the trend as freedom of thought is much harder to control than freedom of speech.
