  • thunderchildSun Dec 17, 2017 10:37 am

    Ive done arpund 40 hours pp that ill be paid for at end of december. worth around a grand. i could phone detail and basically tell them when i want to do payment plus. we are that short staffed and the 40 or so poelts starting in the passed 6 months has not changed that facr
  • Porecruit17Sun Dec 17, 2017 10:17 am

  • PebbleSun Dec 17, 2017 10:17 am
    £22.50 when i wass a prison officer before it was £17
  • Porecruit17Sun Dec 17, 2017 10:16 am
    Ok thats great, I just cant seem to remember what is was but someone advised 39 is better. Thats great SGT! Doess PP come along often?
  • PebbleSun Dec 17, 2017 10:16 am
    Im going to look at shift patterns before decidingbut i would imagine 41 hours is later finishes
  • SgtBushSun Dec 17, 2017 10:15 am

  • npatchett2000Sun Dec 17, 2017 10:01 am

  • falkorSun Dec 17, 2017 10:00 am

         I'm here to defend the rules of the forum and its users. I am proud of how helpful, welcoming and supportive this forum is and and I want it to continue to be so.

         I echo KIRK's comments entirely, he put a quote up the other day "It's nice to be important but it's more important to be nice" and to me, that says it all !

         Boys and girls, this is a forum not a war zone or a jail, and everybody has an opinion good or bad, yours isnt always right!

    if you don't like someone elses, tough you dont need to argue it out. I don't care how long you have been in the civil service, the moj or the mod or even stacking shelves in tesco! what I do care about is we are in this job together! we wear the same uniform!

         At the end of the day, the RAD day is a measure of 'you' not whoever told you the right thing to say, you wouldn't get a stand in for the fitness test, so you shouldn't seek another's responses or answers to scenarios or questions either.
