    An FLO told me tonight that cabinet keys have to be kept securely, i.e. a locked key safe, keeping them on your person or hidden away is no longer acceptable? Anybody else heard this?

    My FEO asked where I keep my keys.... I said "I'm not telling you, its a secret"😀  He said, "Good answer".

    Would this be one of those key safes that can be opened with a small screwdriver or even a potato?

    Or even a wrapper of a piece of chewing gum Gordon , saw it on youtube , very scary  stuff.

    Yet more rubbish dreamt up by some **** who thinks they are tackling gun crime by penalising, probably, the most law abiding section of society. Top marks and a bonus to individual that came up with this little gem.

    Another whim by the FEO it would seem. You should have asked where it says it in the H.O guidelines. i don't believe it's there or he has read them. 

    As above, when asked where I kept my keys, I replied "That's for me to know." My FEO liked that answer.

    I didn't tell him I keep them in the green vase next to the dog sculpture on the mantelpiece. 

    D'oh!

    All I was asked was "Are you the only one who knows the location of the keys?".  I said yes and that I had also put them in one of those crappy little key safes in a location that I thought was fairly out of the way, but wouldn't tell them the location.

    Seemed quite happy with that.

    :lol: They are truly rubbish. There are also the spare keys which i guess should be kept as spares in another safe place. 

     

    Mistake I made was putting the safes in the bedroom wardrobe and they make a racket when I get back at  0300 and wake up my wife. I might move them het but not sure they are going to be easy to get off the wall.

    I had my FEO visit a few weeks ago for FAC and SGC coterminous and he asked me which of the 3 option I intended to do with the keys. I advised they are hidden in only a place I know but that in future I may consider getting a separate safe for them. He had no complaints with them being hidden. (Scotland)

    Securing the keys, hiding them or keeping them on your person. FEO simply asked me to tick 1 of the three options on his form for wht I was currently doing which was hiding them. He had no issue with this. But again the FEO's in Scotland seem to be a little different than England
