Why wont we like a police officer..

What type of police are you ?
People just don't tend to like Police for obvious reasons, I'm still doing my probation at the moment (which is two years long) after next year I will be able to specialise in what i want which is ARV.


I'm a support technician and network administrator for an energy consultancy. I also do the audio / video at the company's conferences (Birmingham NEC / Brussles).

It's not a bad job but i'm struggling with a nightmare Microsoft Exchange problem at the moment!

I'l soon be training to become an MCSE.

It's only traffic enforcement we have a problem with :D lols
Off the topic sorry but:

the police are ACE and they do a CORKER JOB....especially the traffic police...

IMO: this unfortunate stereotype comes from a combination of a proportion of idiodts that burn up speed restictions (mainly 30 Zones) showing off on testoterone overdoses etc and are miffed cos they get shafted and small minority of officers who are snotty/arragant/impolite/power-trip when they do a stop (and thats a human/personnallity thing...not a police thing. In my experience MOST officers are ROLE MODDELS

Im a student bum (not really a living).
there's no such thing as a 'student bum' unless it all goes to waste

dig in and you be glad of it in the end :)

Road Safety Engineer....... saving lives on a daily basis (or that's what we tell ourselves!)

I'm also at Sussex Uni. I'm not really in the SAS, that was a downright lie. I'm a law student (which is almost as exciting...right?)


At present I'm an IT contractor working as a Wintel Server Administrator for a huge Financial Institution. Seem's I'm destined to be a IT whore (contractor) for a while. Still the moneys good.


I need to find that photoshop of you done a few years back, that was hilarious!

I'm an IT Project Consultant. In non-management speak that means I drive to our clients' workplaces and fix their computers and I design and code websites in XHTML, PHP and MySQL
