1) I have a character who is a police officer in the UK (Yorkshire, in particular), and I was wondering if anyone could give me any slang that he might use (or others might use about him), in addition to how exactly one goes about joining the police force in the UK. I've googled, but with very poor results.
2) How much would a policeman make on average in the UK?
3) Can anyone give examples of things that are completely normal in the US, but practically unheard of in the UK, or vice versa?
Thanks so much - I know these are a little vague, and I don't know very much, so it makes googling rather difficult.
