Welcome to the Off Duty Forums

Please note that these forums are primarily for serving and retired police officers, as well as those from the armed forces, ambulance and fire service. However there is a section specifically to give assistance for those contemplating joining the Job or those who have just joined.

You are requested to abide by the rules of the forum as reproduced below.

While the administrators and moderators of this forum will attempt to remove or edit any generally objectionable material as quickly as possible, it is impossible to review every message. Therefore you acknowledge that all posts made to these forums express the views and opinions of the author and not the administrators, moderators or webmaster (except for posts by these people) and hence will not be held liable.

You agree not to post any abusive, obscene, vulgar, slanderous, hateful, threatening, sexually-oriented or any other material that may violate any applicable laws. Doing so may lead to you being immediately and permanently banned (and your service provider being informed). The IP address of all posts is recorded to aid in enforcing these conditions. You agree that the webmaster, administrator and moderators of this forum have the right to remove, edit, move or close any topic at any time should they see fit. As a user you agree to any information you have entered above being stored in a database. While this information will not be disclosed to any third party without your consent the webmaster, administrator and moderators cannot be held responsible for any hacking attempt that may lead to the data being compromised.
By clicking Register you agree to be bound by these conditions and to receive the Off Duty newsletter.

Some areas are only visible to registered members; only registered members are able to post topics or replies.

Here are some hints to help you along the way

1. If you are posting a question, please use the Search feature first. Your question may already have been asked several times and you will save time if the answer is already posted.

2. Please try and post in the correct forums. Posts put in the wrong forums will be moved or deleted.

3. Please post Titles to your message that describe what the post is about.
Titles such as 'Help' or 'Problem' mean absolutely nothing to those looking for specific information. They are then forced to look through your post to see if it might be useful to them.

4. Please make an effort to spell correctly. Once you've posted something, if you notice an error, feel free to use the Edit facility...your post isn't set in stone.

5. Please DO NOT use All CAPITALS in either your Post Title or the content. Text in all capitals is harder to read.

6. If you are going to quote from a previous post, please just quote the relevant section. It wastes space if you quote the whole post when you are actually only referring to one sentence within that post.

7. Please don't post personal details such as your telephone number or email address unless you are happy with all and sundry having access to it.

8. Please refrain from foul or other inappropriate language

9. Remember THIS IS A PUBLIC FORUM and as such, your post is viewable to anyone who visits the site. This includes your friends and neighbours, your colleagues, your line managers, your trainers as well as any journalist or anti-police visitor

Enjoy your stay

With effect from 1st September 2009, in order to improve board security, all new membership sign-ups will be required to post a 'hello' message within 24hrs, otherwise their username will be de-activated. This is to reduce the high number of spurious sign-ups that the Admin Team have to deal with on a daily basis and ensures that (as far as possible) new members are genuine.

New members should post a quick 'hello' message in the Canteen section of the forum, on the 'New User Sign Up thread'

Existing members should note that their accounts will be de-activated following a period of 18months or longer of inactivity.

If you do find that your account has been deactivated please re-register under a different username, avoiding the use of e-mail addresses such as hotmail, gmail, yahoo, etc. as they will no longer be accepted.
