  • UK Cop looking for oppertunity in US

    Hi,

    I'm a police oficer in London England. Is there any securiy company, or does anybody know of a company which accepts and sponsers applications to work and live in the States ? I, and other officers , are interested in this subject, and are exceptionally keen to live in the States. I would be grateful for any help.

    Regards to our friends across the pond

    Go to your Justice Ministry and ask about the exchange program wherein allied law enforcement officers work with selected agencies. Program lasts for anywhere from 18 months to five years.
    Many of our federal, state and local officers go to England for the very same purpose.
    When in the Air Force we had TDYs to the UK and met and worked with a lot of "Bobbies." That experience was exhilarating for me. The "Tea Shoppes" were a blast and so were the scones.
    Enjoy the day,
    Bill

      If I lived in the UK instead of the USA I would be a 'bobbie' because I could work unarmed. I admire the way you handle yourselves w/o the need for every officer to carry a firearm. (I know you have armed response units)

      Here in the USA, I can't even work as an investigator unless I am willing to carry a weapon. That leaves dispatch (been there; done that) or evidence technician.

      How about an exchange program for US security officers to work w/ bobbies?

        Mr. Security

        You don't have to go all the way across the pond! Transit Security in Montreal (commonly called Metro Police) respond to the same calls as the police & they are armed only with PR-24's & handcuffs. And believe it or not, there has never been one Officer killed on duty. (The only problem would be that all reports have to be written in French-the main reason why I never applied )

          I'm in the same boat with you when it comes to the French. But otherwise, that IS a good idea.

            I think I might have you beat. After living here all my life I can read & speak it Just can't write it.

                Mr. Security, if you like the idea of working in unarmed, simply move to Canada. Only Police Officers, Vancouver Transit Police, and armored truck drivers carry openly on duty. There are a over abundance of employers that have unarmed security, Special Constables and etc that fulfill duties very similar to Police. Most carry ASP batons and OC spray...but some don't have even that.

                Cheers!

                  I don't know of any non Police Officers that carry OC spray in the Montreal area. From what I still see in the Criminal Code it is still illegal for anyone except a Police Officer from using it on a person. (Postmen, meter readers etc can use it on dogs).

                    You don't need to be a police officer, only a peace officer.

                      “peace officer” includes

                      ( a) a mayor, warden, reeve, sheriff, deputy sheriff, sheriff’s officer and justice of the peace,

                      ( b) a member of the Correctional Service of Canada who is designated as a peace officer pursuant to Part I of the Corrections and Conditional Release Act, and a warden, deputy warden, instructor, keeper, jailer, guard and any other officer or permanent employee of a prison other than a penitentiary as defined in Part I of the Corrections and Conditional Release Act,

                      ( c) a police officer, police constable, bailiff, constable, or other person employed for the preservation and maintenance of the public peace or for the service or execution of civil process,

                      ( d) an officer within the meaning of the Customs Act, the Excise Act or the Excise Act, 2001, or a person having the powers of such an officer, when performing any duty in the administration of any of those Acts,

                      ( d.1) an officer authorized under subsection 138(1) of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act,

                      ( e) a person designated as a fishery guardian under the Fisheries Act when performing any duties or functions under that Act and a person designated as a fishery officer under the Fisheries Act when performing any duties or functions under that Act or the Coastal Fisheries Protection Act,

                      ( f) the pilot in command of an aircraft

                      (i) registered in Canada under regulations made under the Aeronautics Act, or

                      (ii) leased without crew and operated by a person who is qualified under regulations made under the Aeronautics Act to be registered as owner of an aircraft registered in Canada under those regulations,

                      while the aircraft is in flight, and

                      ( g) officers and non-commissioned members of the Canadian Forces who are

                      (i) appointed for the purposes of section 156 of the National Defence Act, or

                      (ii) employed on duties that the Governor in Council, in regulations made under the National Defence Act for the purposes of this paragraph, has prescribed to be of such a kind as to necessitate that the officers and non-commissioned members performing them have the powers of peace officers;

                      I could see some security people being considered as Peace Officers under section C of this section (or other person...)but have never heard of any. Have you?

                        I'll take your suggestion under advisement. In the meantime, family obligations do not allow for it.
