All in a day’s work

Posted in The Job - General by 200

A female police officer has been praised after putting her own life at risk to rescue a woman who had fallen into a river while trying to save her dog.

The officer from Greater Manchester Police jumped into the River Irwell in Salford and clung on to the woman for ten minutes until  other emergency services arrived.

A spokesman for GMP said: “The officer herself has been very modest about the whole incident, which is typically the attitude of police officers, but it is important to say that it is individuals like this who make not just us, but all of our communities feel proud.”

Meanwhile, the officer has had her wages cut and pension raped and will be expected to put her life on the line should the occasion arise in the future.

    Is this incident not going to attract a bollocking for this brave officer for putting herself in harm’s way without a risk assessment or agreed directive or process?

    That was sarcasm at hte heirarchy by the way, not criticism of the officer.

    Oh dear, no boxes ticked there then.

    However, 10 out of 10 to the officer concerned. Proper Policing.
