Bang to rights

Hello fellow bloggers, you may have noticed that I haven't posted in a while. Well to be honest I haven't really been enjoying work much lately, so when my rest days came around I've rather not think about the job and enjoy my rest days. All the politics, bureaucracy and shits getting off Scot free had got me down.

But that all changed yesterday afternoon when for once I was in the right place at the right time and managed to catch three burglars 'bang to rights' singled handed (well with some assistance from my PCSO colleague)! All but the one who was the lookout have 'had it' in interview and I'm back in the sarge's good books. For the first time in a while I remembered why I joined the job in first place. Its hardly ever like an episode of The Bill, but the few times when it is it makes it all worth it.

Nice one my son! Top result, well done.

I'm hugely de-motivated at the moment too. I can hardly believe the amount of crap and pointless red tape a PC has to go through just to interview and charge a guilty shitbag.

A post will appear very soon on my blog about exactly how p*ssed off I am right now.

On the other hand, I had a good result today too, so I might blog that one soon too.

Well done with the collar, I'm glad you're getting your mojo back! If you see mine, would you tell me where I can find it?

Top job! Catching Billy Burglar in the act NEVER happens. It's the sort of thing that gives you a buzz for days. Enjoy it while it lasts.
