thought for the day
we must get away from this notion that criminals need to be punished. why should they be punished? :slno: this is an outmoded method of dealing with a person who committed a crime. they should be held in custody, preferably for a short a time as possible, so it doesn't cost too much and if when they are released, they then commit a further crime, well even then they still don't deserve punishment, instead they should be welcomed back into custody, preferably for an even shorter time than previously, so it costs even less than the first time. when released back onto the poor old UK public again, if they commit a further crime again, well - it's to be expected. the UK have a 'REVOLVING DOOR JUSTICE system,' it's not that good at actually providing justice for the UK public, but it is cheap and that's what counts :slsad:

Re: Another attack on civil servants

utterly disgusted. the idea the public sector workers work half days and spend half the year off is a joke. due to the pay freeze and new starting conditions for public sector workers newer members like myself (officer 2) are on par with the private sector. in terms of annual leave you are entitled...

Re: JES.

What I cannot fathom is job 'ratings'?? I work in a nick with all catagory cons, but do I get 'graded' on those I work with now, meaning that I can refuse to be cross deployed as there will be prisoners there that other staff are rated as a higher pay scale due to the cat/type of prisoners there? C...

Re: Flexible Working Request

Sorry agree with Wyer as you are asking for a change to your contract, it is your choice to do that you are wanting a change to the contract so is reasonable for them to want to change it too
