Getting to know the PSNP (Phil Rapley)

Posted: December 6, 2011 in community, police, PSNP

Q) What is your current profession?
A) I am the Police Community Support Officer (PCSO) for Popley. I have been doing this role since 2006 and have been a part of the PSNP since it originated in 2007.

Q) How did you get the job?
A) After a career in Musical Instrument repairs I decided that I needed a new challenge. After some research I discovered the role of a PCSO and felt like I could really give something to this role. After various interviews, assessments and forms I completed my training at Police HQ before completing my tutorship in Whitchurch.

Q) Describe a typical day for you?
A) One of the best features about being a PCSO is that no two days are ever the same. Generally however I will start my shift by checking through what has occurred in Popley since I was last in the office. This is usually followed up by essential crime and Anti-Social behaviour enquiries. After this I kit up and cycle out to Popley where I spend the remainder of my shift tackling Anti-Social Behaviour, Meeting with multi-agencies, Offering crime prevention and re-assurance and dealing with our current Popley Priorities.

Q) What has been your most memorable experience in Popley?
A) Returning to Popley after a brief hiatus to cover the Basingstoke Rural SNT.

Q) What’s been your most embarrassing moment?
A) Falling off my Police Bike in front of some children I had just told to be careful on their bikes.

Q) What is your best quality?
A) My patience.

Q) What is your worst quality?
A) My attention can sometimes go away after a long training day.

Q) What makes you happy?
A) My Dog, My Family and Cheering on my favourite sports teams.

Q) If you could go back in time, where would you go?
A) there are too many to choose from. I would like to go back to May 1st 1994 at the San Marino GP. Somehow I would stop Ayrton Senna driving that F1 car.

Q) What would you spend a lottery win on?
A) I would buy myself and my parents a nice house, spend over a million pounds on a McLaren sports car and build a charity Dog shelter for unwanted Dogs in Hampshire.

Q) Tell us one thing about yourself that nobody else would know?
A) I have some involvment in the professional Wrestling business.
