Reception was locked sealed behind a glass partition with a locked Security door. There was 4 coppers inside, behind the Reception counter (which looked like a bank teller's which is fair enough).

Despite the fact there was4 of us standing in the queue it still took them 5 mins + to open the door.

Then there was the spate of ND's and other dodgy practices employed by the ARV's.
TSG Tactical support group. At least, that what they were called when I worked down there. I find the Old Bill a lot less approachable these days and more rude if i'm honest. Looking like Serbian special forces tends to do that I suppose....

SO19 are now called CO19 - they moved in the Met structure a few years back.

Glad this whole thing was resolved without injury.

There are actually quite a few headsets or ear peices which plug into the mike from a standard jack. That looks like what he's got to me.
