After 18 years in the Police Force I’ve had to admit defeat and accept that I can no longer do the job. I wanted to be a Police Officer since I was a teenager, I couldn’t envisage doing anything else, which is why this makes me so sad. Like most Police Officers, I’ve….
made the thin blue line that little bit thinner. Be proud of what you do and know that you make a positive difference to so many people. But for me, it’s time for a change. 1772: off duty. #policefamily #thinblueline #joblikenoother #MentalHealthMatters
I’ve seen quite a bit of negativity towards my wife regarding episode 2 and the way she handled it. Those scenes with Sarah could never truly reflect the extreme emotion and trauma she went through that day. Cut her some slack and be kind. #TheSalisburyPoisonings @SarahBailey3
I have so much that I want to say about this tweet. But I can’t, and I won’t. twitter.com/BorisJohnson/s…..
that they’ve given me, and the support that I’ve received. We’ve all seen that the ‘Policing family’ very much exists and in the current climate it’s more important now than ever. To all those in the Police, I salute you. Keep fighting the good fight, I’m just sorry that I’ve…
experienced my fair share of trauma, violence, upset, injury and grief. We deal with it, take it on the chin and keep going because that’s our job. But we’re still human and the impact this has shouldn’t be underestimated. The events in Salisbury in March 2018 took…..
so much from me and although I’ve tried so hard to make it work, I know that I won’t find peace whilst remaining in that environment. Policing will remain in my heart and I feel honoured and privileged to have been part of Wiltshire Police. I am so grateful for the opportunities
Some things I’ve learned over the last few days: There are a lot amazing people out there. A home video is far more beautiful than any produced drama. We should be more kind to ourselves and each other #RIPDawn #TheSalisburyPoisonings
The response to this has been overwhelming. I’m so grateful to everyone for their love and support. I feel like we’ve had a virtual hug from the nation. Thank you all, you truly are wonderful people. I wish I could respond to you all directly. Love to you all @SarahBailey3 twitter.com/exdsnickbailey…..
Episode one...done. First day back at work...done. Time for a cup of tea. #TheSalisburyPoisonings #milkinlast #thatwasntinthescript https://t.co/9BwV6uT8Dt
An emotional catch up with @wiltspoliceCC today where I received my certificate of service. Thank you for all the memories, they’ll never be forgotten. @wiltshirepolice #policefamily #joblikenoother #ThinBlueLine https://t.co/JP6pPvwNeB
Other things I’ve learned: My cat is more popular than me. My cat should have her own Twitter account. The UK is very sensitive about tea. #milkinlast #thanksRafe
Depression is a volatile and exhausting beast to carry on your back. You can feel good about life, and then a switch can flick in your head and you feel completely empty and numb. Accepting this and being kind to yourself though is so important as a first step. #mentalhealth
This happened today. His name is Milo. A very early birthday present for my beautiful wife @SarahBailey3 x https://t.co/Ix5aBLYgtb
Increased violence and aggression towards the police with officers getting attacked and seriously assaulted. Yet we still run towards the danger, we still do everything we can to protect the public. We do a job that others would shy away from. #ThinBlueLine #PoliceFamily #heroes
Two hours in, and they’re besties https://t.co/ZzU8YmjnLL
This morning has mainly consisted of chewing a slipper, trying to eat the pointing out of the path, sleeping and lots of farting #puppy #Milo #labrador https://t.co/pbMsJOiIk4
My tweets will mainly be pics like this for a while. But I’m not sorry. #labrador #puppy https://t.co/XlCcwC5CZW
Happy 40th Birthday to my beautiful wife @SarahBailey3. Love you with all my heart xxxxxxx https://t.co/HKACozObQP
Getting everything out of my brain and onto paper is both cathartic and emotionally tough. But it’s a useful way of processing everything. I recommend it to anyone who is struggling. Might turn it into a book one day. #MentalHealthMatters #PoliceFamily https://t.co/PMZgjLNLL4
being a victim and are entirely my own. In hindsight I wish I hadn’t written such an ambiguous tweet. Emotion got the better of me last night and I wanted to say something, without saying anything.
Dear Nurses and NHS staff. At a time when you’re possibly feeling unappreciated, I feel compelled to say this. You are ALL heroes. The commitment you show, the sacrifices you make and the lives you save never go unnoticed. During the initial chaos of the COVID pandemic, and still
I think I need to clarify some things; I don’t hold any information relating to National Security, the UK Government, Russia, or the investigation into the 2018 or recent nerve agent attack. IF I did I wouldn’t say it because I’m a Police Officer. My views are based on...
Half marathon finished! Limped over the line for an impressively slow time but enjoyed it none the less. Thank you to everyone who’s supported me and donated to my fundraiser for @StarsAppeal. Thanks for the invite @chriscareyWTPC @laurencejbowen. Missed you today @DecLawn https://t.co/Xn5WIXgPUF
