Running For Cops 

Julia Berry a custody Designated Detention Officer and ex-special constable wanted to raise money for her fellow injured colleagues to get the help and the support they need to facilitate getting them back on the road to recovery.

Jules said, “Far too often we overlook colleagues who are long-term injured or sick it’s easy to forget as the day to day hectic shift work lifestyle we all lead distracts us from absent colleagues especially if they are off for a long time.”

Having already run the Brighton and Manchester Marathon Julia will be running Cops 30 2nd September miler than the following week, The Great North Run on the 10th September and then the Birmingham International Marath on the 15th October.

How did the idea come about?

The idea of PC Edward Walker was that of Julia Berry @DDOJB07 a Detention officer with the Met Police, Diane Lewis @DianeLewis6039 from the NHS and Police Hour @PoliceHour.

Police Hour editor said “Jules an keen runner is Traveling to the North East and was looking for a creative way to fundraise to support UK Cops and enlisted the help of Diane Lewis and the support of Police Hour to get the idea off the ground”

“As a team, we acted quickly and put a plan in place to get PC Edward Walker on his travels. We were delighted that Durham Police wanted to support PC Edward Walker on his tour to help raise some money for the UK Cops Charity”

Poppy Tin theft Nathan Beddow named and shamed by thousands of social media users

Published

on

Shamed Nathan Beddow from Hartlepool walked into a pub and stole a poppy appeal collection tin.

Police Hour released the shocking footage of Beddow who now lives in Blackpool walk into the quiet pub and steal a charity collection tin and a tray of poppies.

He has now been sentenced to 12 weeks in prison which will run alongside a nine-month sentence imposed after he was recalled on licence from a jail term where he broke into the home of a disabled pensioner in Hartlepool

A shameless thief who brazenly stole charity money by putting a Poppy Appeal tin down his trousers has been jailed.

Hartlepool man Nathan Beddow walked into a quiet pub bar and spotted the charity collection tin and tray of poppies.

Nathan Beddow stole the Poppy Appeal money on November 3rd he walked into a pub at 1pm after he was seen loitering around the bar before he stuffs the tin down the form of his pants

A member of the Royal British Legion then found the empty tun down a nearby alleyway and informed the landlord Mr Jenkinson who believes £70 was stolen having donated £40 himself.

The pubs CCTV captured the moment Beddow then came back into the bar with a friend later to buy a drink.

Nathan Beddow was then identified by thousands of Facebook users after the CCTV image was released online.

Police quickly acted and arrested Beddow who told an officer during his arrest”All this for some poppy money, all you have got is some CCTV.”

When he was arrested he was trying to goad police officers he was put into a police van and on the way to the station tried to put a cord around his neck after slipping his handcuffs.

In an attempt to say sorry and get out of going back to jail Beddow wrote a letter of apology and addressed it to the British Red Cross and not the Royal British Legion, He attempted to go back to the pub and repay the money but was kicked out.

Beddow in his defence claimed that he stole the charity tin because he had been subjected to threats from the English Defence League following his previous offence and was scared “The threats of violence by the EDL may well come back to haunt him. He is not normally someone who targets charity boxes.”
