NETCU Guide to Policing Protest

I heard a rumour while I was at camp that a copy of the NETCU Guide to Policing Protest had been dropped by a police officer during one of their violent incursions onto the site. The NETCU guide is a handbook for police on laws relevant to protests with guidelines on how to interpret them, and police forces "are advised not to release this guide following freedom of information requests".

I've just found the entire thing in PDF format here, so I thought I'd link to it as a public service since it's not available through normal democratic channels.

I can't work out how to save it on my own machine because I only have Adobe Reader and none of the menus say "Save" on them anywhere - can anyone help?

Additional from Indymedia:

If you have any concerns about NETCU then get in touch with them

They only have a postal address as a contact so here's a little extra:

PO Box 525
PE29 9AL

Tel: 01480 425091
Fax: 01480 425007

Email: mailbox@netcu.pnn.police.uk ***NEW***
Or try: netcu@cambs.pnn.police.uk

You can ask for Steven Pearl, head of NETCU, for all of your complaints.

I've sent it now if you want to take it down

I haven't got it yet, have you had it returned?

Unknown said...

Yes, sorry, it bounced back because apparently your email address can't accept anything that big. If I sent it as a zip file would you be able to open it, or do you have a gmail or hotmail account?

I might be able to unzip it actually...

The archway one hasn't bounced back yet :)

Alice, instead of clicking the link to open the pdf, right-click and select 'save link as'. Then pick where you want it to go on your hard drive.

when in doubt, it's always worth trying right-clicks.

Of course, you could be using a Mac or some other whack shit, in which case try clicking at random and hope for the best.

Got it, thank you both!
