Friday 15/4/16 Police Fast Response Unit

This afternoon Andy and I joined the 5pm-3am shift at Waterlooville Police Station for a Friday night shift. We were interested to see how busy and varied an evening shift was at the weekend.

We met  friendly, professional Police Officers doing their job under sometimes trying circumstances. We started the evening in a “van” with one male and one female Officer, then at eight pm at Havant Police Station I transferred to a fast response vehicle with two male Officers.

I was surprised when after a short while we answered a 999 call in Waterlooville, only to find an empty telephone box with the receiver hanging off. Apparently a regular occurrence,  what a waste of police time.

We patrolled Hayling Island, where apart from speaking to  three young men who were walking around the streets and we had a friendly exchange with, everything was quiet.

I do think we are lucky to have the police service we do and very much enjoyed speaking to our four Officers this evening.
