Help required from Ex-Forces now Serving Police Officers

#1
This is a very quick and dirty email to all the ex army and now serving police officers (or indeed ex serving Police officers) out there.

I have been tasked by one of the largest Police Forces in the UK to put together a Police specific version of PocketComms This development process also involves 10 other forces which are providing feedback and are piloting, in significant numbers, the current version of PocketComms to gather suggestions from their officers. If you would like to get involved in this development process please e-mail me with a work email address and I will send you the feedback we have had so far for you to mull over dismiss, debate and argue about... ultimately I hope to help produce a tool that eases the communication process for all officers but I am relying on your feed back and thoughts to make it sharper and effective. All who are kind enough to make a significant contribution will receive a complimentary copy of the finished article.

with Thanks

Sounds like a good idea to me. Though be careful not to let too many senior (ie above Chief Inspector) ranks involved. Next thing you know it'll be appearing in their force with a different name and their name on the front. Usually right around promotion board time.

I'm more than happy to give you some input mate. If you PM me I'll forward you my work and personal email addresses.

I was absolutely delighted with the one I bought last year and more than happy with the price of £9.09 (including pouch/after discount/including postage).

I am astounded that you are now able to market this amazing bit of kit for the bargain price of £6.99. :D

It would have to include the flash card "fcuk off, you bullshitting bastard" possibly?

Hi Tropper66, We have had significant sales to Stroke Victims and their carers and families and to the Stroke Association. We are also working with a number of Orgs and special schools to develop a larger format version to help those with mobility problems. I hope to do a more medically focussed version in the future too which will help Doctors and Nursing staff to communicate more effectively. In the meantime we have a distributor Forest Books.com who supplies our books to the deaf and disabled community around the world and we hope to include basic finger spelling (BSL) in future copies or possibly as an add on. (We have already included this in the Police Version as well as US finger spelling in our US Police Version)

We have also recently produced extra pages of content for Epping Forest College who have a significant number of disabled students and have even provided sets of laminated sheets of PocketComms content for those who have trouble turning over the pages.

So in all I am happy to put together content to help and I intend the PocketComms family to grow to include a wider range of products and options

I hope that answers your question?

In response to numerous emails and PM's.

We do intend to develop versions for the NHS and a medical version (it is already in use with a number of air ambulance teams) as well as the fire service and emergency planning teams (again a number have these on trial already)

Anyone wishing to get involved or give feedback please get in touch
