Re: Staff,staff, staff

We used to be able to get a 'Recall to Duty' which automatically gave you four hours at double time. So if for example if I happened to catch a shoplifter whilst out getting my weekly shop (which I've done in the past), then I'd shout it in (phone the control room) and get myself marked on duty. Following working day I'd stick the claim in.

That's all gone now, regardless what happens you just get paid time and a third.
