Trouble is compared to South, police on Shetland are bored in most cases,and any excuse for bit of excitement is bit of a change for them “ the violence they generally experience on Shetland is nothing compared to what happens on a daily basis South. Any violence up here has been pretty mild going on any reports.
I cannot think of anything that has been reported in the paper in last few years that would warrant the police need to carry tasers.
Another toy to play with and use,points for the first officer to use one and try and justify it
Down South the police appear to try and do their upper most to smooth out situations and not make it worse, seem to use their people skills in calming situations and diffuse any rising tension. Up here they appear to be on a power trip, also look for that bit of excitement and certainly less friendly and unapproachable.
Down South, they smile and say good morning to you, up here your lucky to get a grunt.
