  1. Saw this on Twitter and thought it might help !
  2. Update text received saying his has heard nothing about any change of date/ time. Wmp have not made any representation to change the fixture in any way . Julie
  3. I have heard nothing suggesting that will be the case. i have texted the football officer for Birmingham to seek clarification but there was no suggestion of it when I spoke to him Saturday. Will update asap
  4. I understand 5 have been charged from millwall but I am not dealing with the case, I can confirm but again will take time.
  5. They are still on released under investigation bail as being dealt with by investigations . will try and get an update but probably won’t be this week as it’s a little busy at the moment
  6. Sorry! Yes indeed it does
  7. Millwall v bcfc in London is an ongoing case with court due mid September Metpol cid team are dealing with it the figures for city v Swansea have already been released and again we work with South Wales police .
  8. The orocedure for football banning order applications is as follows: 1) person charged or summonsed to court with an offence that can on conviction be issued with a banning order. The officer in the case ( not me) identifies this and issues defendants a notice telling him that as it is a regulated offence a football banning order may be issued. File is submitted to process this happens with all football related cases that go to court , it is policy . 2) the football officer ( currently me) is e mailed and a draft football banning order is requested . I complete this, pro forma generally dependant on where the defendant lives . Requested to attend court if there are any further changes. 3) I attend court ( if a working day and not a Rd) I sit in the back of the court, generally defence solicitor approach me and ask for footage which for some reason despite us submitting it has not made it to the defence! I at this point can be asked by solicitor or defendant to amend any ban they may get due to employment or place of residence . I amend the proposed ban . 4) court hearing takes place, if convicted there is no separate application, cps know it is a regulated offence, the judge knows and if the judge feels the ban will prevent further disorder at or in connection with a football match then they issue one this is a summary of the system . A defendant of course can have a separate hearing for the ban being issued , and often this happens With regards to joey Barton I think there is guidance with regards to employment and football bans, not sure of the case law but it is certainly something that the judges do think about and have regards to when issuing one.
  9. You seem to know an awful lot about how you think the system works so I see no point in continuing to tell how it actually works,
  10. I advise only on the conditions of them should they need to be changed for employment/ residence. I do not issue them or tell the magistrate to do so. It is their decision
  11. Yes, quite a few ! I am on duty , on way to city centre again
  12. I can say that Avon and Somerset police have no plans to install them at the stadium. working the final was great, really busy with lots of Italians wanting selfies with British police officers.
  13. No I have chosen to do it to help with fans concerns/ views on football policing .
  14. I actually worked that game so am aware the camera was in place . Tbh it is not a lthingni know a lot about, but can be used to direct police officers to people for engagement, and at that point identification can be clarified I suppose. Its no different to officers mistakenly identifying someone as being on a football ban who then get spoken to by others and it then becomes obvious a mistake has been made i am not aware of any plans by Avon and Somerset police to have a camera of this type installed at Ashton gate
  15. It would have not looked different. Policing football in this force area is not a way of generating income, it is based solely of risks attached to the fixture, views of fans and the community and the football club .
  16. Confused me as well !!
  17. This particular letter has not been discussed locally because as you say we are not on the list. Discussions locally continue with all clubs and fans with the police point of view still being to decrease the amount of policing into football, and having assessed the games for this season it does look like this will be the case with lower grades at most games already
  18. When they are cancelled within a certain number of days( less than 5 days on this occasion) they are paid with no extra Rd , anything outside you just get an extra Rd
  19. Might be easier to meet at some point where I can discuss with you the football policing role I do and listen to your concerns . More than happy to do that.
  20. No that is not correct. there is no projected number of banning orders put forward at any stage, never has been and never will be . the system is that once a person has been charged with an offence relating to a regulated football match then the court on conviction may give a football banning order . This is a system that does not rely on one officer making decisions on who gets a ban I am afraid , my role and job amongst others is to attend court cases for those cases to assist cps / questions around banning order hence why I suspect I seem to get the attention . !! I can’t comment on that extract as I always like to see the whole article in order to take the extract in context.
  21. It has changed considerably since then.
  22. Yes myself and my colleague , not sure of time, but live music still playing ! No not yet, on going enquiries with Worcester will keep you updated
  23. Fake news from the barrister I am afraid the courts and judges decide who should get a banning order not me .
  24. I got out of the police car with another football officer as we saw the ‘ flag’ and he wanted a photo of me with it. i shook hands and stood chatting to 5 or 6 people , as did my colleague , probably for about 15 mins and we then left . We left because one Male was particularly vocal about our presence and we didn’t wish to create a scene . i was there in wsm to assist the local units as. numbers were below minimum levels due to abstractions for nass festival , I then left and dealt with other jobs throughout the centre, including requesting a group of city fans to leave a pub as the licensee had phoned requesting their removal . I did not return to the area as we were then committed with another incident We have put extra officers into the centre for the last 4 years which has not been noticed and it is fair to say only has been noticed because of my presence ! They are only there to ensure officer numbers are still at minimum, there were no issues at this location as previously stated .
