Although no longer a member BASC still send me their magazine. In Jan/Febs issue I saw an article entitled " Stalking made easy". I thought great, i might pick up some new tip or the magic way. But to my disappointment it was no more than blantent advertising for the DSC1. Now i've got DSC1 and learn't a lot, so i'm not anti DSC. However what really annoyed me was the fact the second paragraph stated "Increasingly police forces are requesting it (DSC1) as a condition of granting an FAC for deer management.............". DSC should be an option, not a requirement. Having read many of the threads on SD my understanding is that the police have no right to request or demand anyone wishing to aquire an FAC for stalking to undergo DSC training as a requirement for granting it. If this statement is correct then why are BASC accepting that the police can require it and even more than that signing up to the police position rather than fighting for stalkers in general and their own stalking members in particular ?
