day work, though certain specialist units are trained to do so and can be called
upon to help the regular police force in situations where firearms are involved,
e.g. terrorist incidents, armed robberies etc. The only policemen who routinely
carry weapons are those assigned to guard politicians and diplomats, or special
officers who patrol airports.
In certain circumstances specially trained police officers can be armed,
but only with the signed permission of a magistrate.
All members of the police must have gained a certain level of academic
qualifications at school and undergone a period of intensive training. Like in the
army, there are a number of ranks: after the Chief Constable comes the Assistant
Chief Constable, Chief Superintendent, Chief Inspector, Inspector, Sergeant and
Constable. Women make up about 10 per cent of the police force. The police are
helped by a number of Special Constables – members of the public who work
for the police voluntarily for a few hours a week.
Each police force has its own Criminal Investigation Department (CID).
Members of CIDs are detectives, and they do not wear uniforms. (The other
uniformed people you see in British towns are traffic wardens. Their job is to
make sure that drivers obey the parking regulations. They have no other
powers – it is the police who are responsible for controlling offences like
speeding, careless driving and drunken driving.)
The duties of the police are varied, ranging from assisting at accidents to
safeguarding public order and dealing with lost property. One of their main
functions is, of course, apprehending criminals and would-be criminals.
