Day 2: 7.30am start to our British Transport Police training
day. We have had a heavy session on track safety - basically stay
off the lines - and we've learned a whole new vocabulary; 'The
Cess' 'The 4 foot' 'The 6 foot' 'The 10 foot'. We’ve also been told
not to try and stop a Dockland Light Railway by signalling the
driver, this is because they don’t have one
Then we had a session on their Airwave sets, and Staff Assaults
to be followed this afternoon by Fatality Management, Counter
Terrorism, Legislation and Intelligence, hopefully we will finish
around 6pm tonight.
This afternoon we should find out our specific duties and
confirmed tour of duties for tomorrow!
