    NYPD use new sirens that people can both hear and feel

    The "rumble siren", which has been tested on a small number of cars in recent months, sends out low frequency sound waves that are powerful enough to shake windows and set off nearby car alarms.

    Website Diversion back to www.cpdme.com

    Good Morning / Evening

    Depending of course what time your reading this. This evening the final transition has taken place to direct all our sites back www.cpdme.com and all our sister domains to the one website. This allows our staff from different disciplines to share information and hold better control over the facilities and benefits to both our existing and new members. We still are allowing www.cpdmebuddy.co.uk & www.cpdme.eu to direct to this site and hopefully nothing should be affected.

    The decision was made after some confusion towards multidisciplines, however these have been resolved. Some of our older members still have not responded to our invite to move to this new website and we are inviting those members again to contact us.

    If you are having technical problems or indeed cannot log in, please use the contact form to inform of of any issues. Our support staff are on call around the clock to deal with such matters as and when they occur. Please also remember we have a FAQ section that we regularly update to answer your most frequent questions.

    I hope your enjoying the new website and we always welcome feedback.

    Yours Thankfully
