    A reminder of the everyday issues affecting our Officers I have been following this story for a little while now. With the shortage of Officers on the ground these days the push to milk the night time economy goes on. Croydon Police have been attempting to cut the hours of a local Night Club because of the violence associated with the club. The owner an ex Special has fought the limits put upon the club with the Croydon Council http://www.croydonadvertiser.co.uk/Croydon-Council-s-licensing-committee-makes-Dice/story-29116724-detail/story.html the Council have just rejected the Police case not withstanding the nearly 400 pages of information put forward by the Met Police .https://www.documentcloud.org/documents/2800595-Metropolitan-Police-Case-Against-Dice-Bar.html Perhaps all police cover should now be withdrawn for a month and lets us see how things go. At least will prevent more officers getting assaulted..Personal interest ZD my original Station.

    Excuse me but “reasonableness” is not the legal standard for the use of force in self defence. That is confrmed in s.3(2) of the Criminal Law Act 1967:

    “(1)A person may use such force as is reasonable in the circumstances in the prevention of crime, or in effecting or assisting in the lawful arrest of offenders or suspected offenders or of persons unlawfully at large.

    (2)Subsection (1) above shall replace the rules of the common law on the question when force used for a purpose mentioned in the subsection is justified by that purpose…”.
