This is not being treated properly by the BDS/Police Forces. BDS look as though they are just in it for the finance from running courses. I'm trying to get a handle on this matter so that some more formal organisation could be attempted.
Please reply with:
1) the Police Forces that have arrangements in place for call-outs.
2) other local arrangements, i.e. RSPCA etc.
3) Police Forces that do not want to know.
4) any other local arrangements.
Any info regarding how schemes are run would be very helpful such as:
a) Who calls you out.
b) What times of the day is usual, i.e. does it appear that it is when Vets/RSPCA are not available.
c) Do you do it free of charge or get some expenses.
d) What size of area do you cover.
e) Do Police attend when you are there.
f) Who takes charge of the situation.
g) Do you provide feedback to the caller.
h) Anything else
You can PM me if you do not wish to be identified.
