  •     KIRK
         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.


        FALKOR
         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 !




        manc-apollo
         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!



        Karen47
         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.

    Rota was for 30 weeks, it was clear in number of hours per code, but provided no start times.
  • TwistiesWed Jan 17, 2018 8:55 pm
    I was given a copy of a rota, but no start times.

  •   GOOD NEWS! In February 2017 Prison Officer ORG UK gained an SSL certificate!

  • During February 2017 this site began a journey to HTTPS standards, culminating in our SSL certificate and subsequent page by page audit, to check whether every inch of the site met the sometimes excruciating requirements of today's browsers e.g Firefox, Chrome, Safari etc

    HTTPS provides authentication of the website and associated web server with which one is communicating, which protects against man-in-the-middle attacks. Additionally, it provides bidirectional encryption of communications between a client and server, which protects against eavesdropping and tampering with or forging the contents of the communication. In practice, this provides a reasonable guarantee that one is communicating with precisely the website that one intended to communicate with, as well as ensuring that the contents of communications between the user and site cannot be read or forged.
