Analysis of information in occurrence
Guidance on the maintenance of the Daily Occurrence
Book (DOB) was issued by PS2(A) in July 2003. A copy of this policy
document is attached. It should be noted that the DOB is simply
a log in which the main events that have taken place in a 24 hour
period are recorded by the Guard Commander. The unit RSM will
examine the DOB at the start of each working day and will decide
what action is required as a result of the entries made. He will
then in turn pass the DOB to the Adjutant and CO for their follow
up action as necessary. Occurrences of a serious nature that are
reported during silent hours or weekends are dealt with by the
duty personnel as they occur in accordance with the relevant unit
standing orders. Orders for the maintenance of the DOB are given
in Unit Standing Orders.
In the light of the Skinner Case these arrangements
are being reviewed.
