Staff officers cause cup shock

Staff officers from Spamford are through to the next round of a national competition following a surprise victory in the quarter final stages.
The event, which involves teams from every force in England and Wales, requires the competitors to complete a number of staff officer disciplines in front of a panel of judges. The challenges relate to their usual duties and include coffee making, bag carrying and Indian head massage.
The key role of staff officer has been stepping stone for many current officers in ACPO and is ideal for people seeking a career in policing without having to do any actual police work. It provides a vital insight in to what police leadership is really like.
Spamford fielded an all female team mentored by ACC Jasper Smallcock who was delighted with the narrow victory over Northants.
'We knew it was going to be a difficult fixture. You only have to look at their twitter accounts to see the high level of chummy corporate banter they can produce, but I knew from personal experience that my girls could pull it off'.
Team captain sergeant Sophie Titley-Bradshaw said ' Jasper is a great coach and emphasised the attention to detail required at this level. It is not jut about carrying a bag, it is about emptying it as well. Little things like remembering the chocolate sprinkles on a cappuccino scored highly with the judges'.
Spamford will now meet tournament favourites Sussex in the semi final.
