Cops Companion 32 - More coaching


The Coach of the Prison Soccer Team
was not averse to giving private lessons either.
Despite the relative comfort of his apartment
located in the staff accomodation wing
Prisoners did not fight to be selected for his team.

Cops Companion 31 - Coaching the team



Prisoners had to learn new skills to survive
Fortunately the guards gave special coaching lessons
at night, in the cells, in private

Cops Companion 30 - Behave!



The prisoners only had to look around them
to see that the cops had an array of terrifying weapons
stowed about their person.
Just looking too closely at them was liable to result
in the Officer picking them out for closer appraisal
and few wanted that.

Cops Companion 29 - The Prisoners Conform



Despite the unfairness of their arrest, the discomforts and humiliations,
the prisoners submitted to the regime of nudity and harsh discipline.
 aware that any false move could lead to fearful retribution.

Cops Companion 28 - Taken away



Although the Guards denied anything was amiss,
the prisoners knew that some of their fellow prisoners
were taken away and did not return.
Their fate was completely unknown.

Boy Spankin'

Mitchell - Boy Spanking Cell

If you want to spank a villain pull his mate in too!
A sample from Mitchell's Neighbouhood Police series at mitchmen Yahoo Group

Cops Companion 27 - Day of trial



Unfortunately it seemed that any prisoners with appealing qualities
were those most likely to be taken away for treatment.
Special treatment which bore no relationship to the reform techniques
published in the academic criminological literature.

It was discreetly funded via the Office Supplies budget.

Cops Companion 26 - Chosen One



Strange friendships took root behind bars
Night shift cops found it hard to ignore the prisoner nudity
The thought of sending their favourites off to be punished
 brought out protective instincts which were hard to control.

Cops Companion 25 - Unloading

"Get a move on! We know what you're doing!"
 Toilet facilities in the prison came under strain
 as young drug runners competed with other users for their sanctuary.
Tearfully straining to deliver their loads under the watchful eye of buyers
 impatient to get their hands on what they had been promised.


It could be a traumatic experience
for men unaccustomed to such attentions

Cops Companion 24 - Loading up

"Yeah, I reckon we can get another bag in there, boy"


Some of the less scrupulous cops who found drugs in the searches,
confiscated them and sold them back to inmates in other wings of the jail.
To move the gear around the prison undetected
they picked out naive, young inmates to use as 'mules'
Using fake searches as a pretext to load up them up.

Cops Companion 23 - Prison Search



The cops weren't going to let the detained criminals
start business all over again inside the jail
On the spot drug searches were frequent and were carried out
to the same 4S specification, Stop, Strip, Search and Secure
(although the Strip part was usually minimal now).

The men were usually left secured too as a warning to others
A position that left them vulnerable to other prisoners
  frustrated by separation from their girlfriends
and enemies seeking satisfaction for long standing grudges.

Cops Companion 22 - Pause in proceedings




Suddenly the cops found they could pause for breath between arrests
They felt a new excitement at being on top of the Criminals
Everyone could see they meant business and kept out of their way
lest they be picked up treated like delinquents too.

Cops Companion 21 - Taken for punishment



Meanwhile, unsubstantiated but disturbing reports were coming out of the jail
Each day a selection of prisoners were taken away for punishment
There were blood curdling reports of what happened to them
and blurry photographs whose authenticity could not be established

Cops Companion 20 - Jogger arrested


Dawn Patrol in the City Park now became a popular shift.
Vagrants and homeless people sleeping out on the benches were left alone
and attention focussed instead on the abundance of athletic men
that were to be found there exercising before going to work,
blissfully unaware that jogging in the Park precincts
(especially in skimpy clothes)
had become a misdemeanour under the new stricter regime.

Cops Companion 19 - Seen by the Commissioner

"You knock before entering, punk!"


As numbers grew and conditions in the jail were began to deteriorate
certain inmates, having got over the initial shock of arrest and naked detention
demanded to see the man in charge to register their protest
Adam Beaubutt the first man arrested was the first to protest.

The Commissioner was always happy to see inmates in his office,
providing they were suitably dressed for him and they knocked before entering,
but Adam found he was subjected to the Commissioners theories on criminal reform
including practical demonstrations which were painful and embarrassing.

Cops Companion 18 - Mass collections


Arrests were now running at such high levels
that the arrested villains were being left, stripped and secured,
at designated collection points around the town,
to save Officers having to ferry them to the Station


Fortunately the weather smiled on the 4S sweep but nevertheless
these men were in a position of some vulnerability while they waited
and not only from mischievous and salacious passers-by,
since once they had been spotted word soon got around.

Eventually a police truck would arrive to pick them all up
The true villains amongst them (and there were a few)
 just had to hope that they'd be collected by the cops
before some aggrieved victim arrived to exact revenge

Usually their buddies and associates showed no desire to intervene
They weren't going to risk putting themselves in the sights of the cops.

Oi! You! Come and untie us!

The more audacious and hardened punks shouted at passers-by to set them free.
Their threats and intimidation had worked in the past,
but now citizens ignored them, no longer afraid
and glad they could go about their business unmolested.
Quite happy to see the thugs treated like garbage.

Cops Companion 17 - Campus Raid

Patrols were sent out to outer areas like the College Campus
Students in their cars were an easy target for the Cops
they usually rode round in neglected vehicles
which were overloaded with rowdy friends.

These stops therefore yielded multiple arrest opportunities
and if the passengers were fit, sporting types then the strip process
could be particularly enjoyable for cops who had interests that way.

These victims were usually too young and inexperienced to protest or resist
they were more worried about their parents finding out.

Neighbourhood Cops 16 - Taking Stock

"Did you see that guy's face when I ripped off his briefs?"


After a couple of weeks of the new arrest regime
 the jail was starting to fill up nicely with dismayed villains
and cops felt they could pat themselves on the back.
However the stats didn't show much change in the crime problem yet.
and their targets had learned to avoid the cops traditional spots.
They needed to move into new areas of operation.

Neighbourhood Cops 15 - Hosing down Hotheads



Inmates were usually in much need of cleaning up after restitution sessions
The cops pragmatic approach to cleanliness and discipline
generally involved protracted, high-pressure hosing down.
They didn’t always limit themselves to water either*

Neighbourhood Cops 14 - Unofficial visitors



While the night watch were busy disciplining their prisoners of choice
other inmates received unofficial visits from masked civilians
who were supposed to be carrying out cleaning or maintenance
but liked to tease some of the hotter prisoners during their break time

Neighbourhood Cops 13 - Night Punishments



Inmates in the main detention cells fared no better.
The new regime of total restraint meant the night watch
had much less to do and they got very bored.
So they went to town on prisoners who caused problems.

One such moment was captured in this indistinct CCTV image
which quickly found it’s way onto the Internet
and provoked a lively social media discussion
amongst those who knew who the inmate was.
