  1. Hi guys, So had recruitment already happened for 2015? I've checked out the recruitment webpage which states "We will be re-opening our next recruitment campaign during 2015". What's the deal? I'd be interested in putting in an application. I'm a Special over in North Wales waiting for recruitment windows to open and the West Mercia area isn't too far for me to uproot to. That is, unless, they only recruit from their Specials / PCSOs / locals? Let me know! Cheers, Ed

  3. So, taking influence from @Eddzz!! and his wonderful blog, I've decided to post my own spin on what it means / involves to become a PC. I got the official go ahead about 2 1/2 weeks ago that I had been successful and I would be on the next intake, which starts on Monday October 24th. Lots of paperwork, forms and signatures to complete before then. I've been invited for a pre employment day on Saturday 15th October at the force training school. This is to be shown around, meet your new trainers / colleagues and to go through the uniform fitting again. I say again, as up until last month I was a serving special constable for the same force. It all started when I moved from Wales to England to live in Kent. I met a girl who's from this area and things kind of went from there. I didn't have any friends, family or close connections to spend time with so it was all very difficult. I joined the specials in June 2015 and I instantly fell in love with the job. The unpredictable nature of calls, tasks and day to day activities still makes me smile now. My current job is working within forensic mental health services, which sounds great, but can become boring at times - so the change is very much a good one! I feel a sense of personal proudness to not only become a special constable for one of the UKs largest forces, but to also be on the verge of becoming a full time PC. It's really been a long and difficult road but soon to be over. I aim to share my experiences and what it's like to be a PC and hopefully inspire more of you who wish to follow suit. I will update again sharing what I get up to on Saturday at the pre employment day - if there's anything you wish to know or ask, don't hesitate to comment! Dan
  4. Hey all, I currently have an application in with a force and have so far passed the SEARCH assessment centre and am awaiting my final interview. Another force currently has open vacancies for PCs. I have contacted said force who have said they would accept my transferred SEARCH score in an application. Question is: would I be able to submit a second application to another force whilst a current application is still in process? Way I see it is that if my interview in the current application goes tits up then I have another chance with a different force relatively soon after the fact. Let me know. Cheers.
  5. The thread name is a reference to what I've been told my a lot of PCs who describe the difference between being a Regular and a Special. This thread is directed towards those who started off as Specials then became PCs. Apart from the obvious, what are the differences for both roles? From the PCs I've spoken to, I've gathered a collective opinion as follows: 1) Getting used to shift work whereas Specials can obviously choose when to volunteer 2) A lot more responsibility for following through on jobs 3) A lot of paperwork Does that sum it up? I have opinions from some who work in the service who say that they know Specials who then became PCs. These SC to PC individuals then realise that it's ''so different'' that they don't like Policing anymore. I am a Special btw keen to become a PC.
  6. Hi, my name's Tom, 22, living in Sheffield. I've made the November 2015 PC intake for West Mercia Police, training at Defford, with a posting of Herefordshire. I'll be moving over to the area eventually from Sheffield, although hoping to make use of the accommodation provided in the meantime. I'm looking to try to make contact with any other new starters or anybody already working in this area, chat, and get any advice! Cheers
  7. Hi all, Just joined today after much lurking. Unsure if this fits here or elsewhere, but my topic for discussion is what second job can I do which will fit in around being a response cop? I'm approaching 3 years service, love this job despite the constant media battering we get. I'm on the old payscale so I accept it's not a badly paid job by any means but I would like to get another job/hobby to supplement my income, particularly as I still rent and want to build up some deposit money for a mortgage. I'm on a 6 on 4 off pattern so I certainly feel like I could do a couple of days work each set of rest days. I do whatever overtime is going but thats quite irregular. I've thought about it and most part time jobs don't really work with a rolling 6 on 4 off pattern as my days off are different each calendar week. I enjoy driving so have thought about casual driving jobs, which I reckon I'd need at least a C category licence for so there is a cost in obtaining that. Any ideas, inspirations or opinions please?

  9. Constable David Mitchison shoved man so hard he cracked his head on pavement and needed hospital treatment, court told PC David Mitchison leaving Birmingham Magistrates' Court A police constable shoved a drinker so hard he fell and cracked his head on the pavement when violence erupted outside a Midland pub, a court was told.   Fifty-six-year old Stephen Hubbard was pushed so hard he had to have hospital treatment, Birmingham magistrates were told. David Mitchison, 48, from Walsall, who was accused of using ‘excessive force’ in the incident has denied assaulting Mr Hubbard.   Harbinder Gahir, prosecuting, said at around 6pm on March 9 last year there had been an incident outside the Tap and Tanner pub in Walsall between two men.   He said there were a number of on-lookers, including Mr Hubbard, who was on the other side of the street. “It is at that point PC Mitchison approached Mr Hubbard and without any real warning or informing him to move away, he pushed him so hard that he fell to the concrete floor.   “As a consequence he had an injury to the back of his head which required five or six stitches put in place to stop the bleeding.” Mr Gahir said the officer later made a statement claiming that after initially being cooperative Mr Hubbard had become abusive and threatening. He said when he took hold of the man’s forearm he felt it tense and thought Mr Hubbard was about to punch him so he pushed him away with his open palms.   “The Crown would say on viewing the CCTV that is clearly not the case. “What ensued was actually a blatant push by PC Mitchison who was not acting in the course of his duty. “What PC Mitchison did was effectively to abuse his position and the force he used was excessive and disproportionate to what took place.”   Mr Hubbard told the court he had been at the pub with his wife and that he had gone outside when the trouble started.   “A WPC was being shouted at by a member of the public who was causing trouble. I wanted to calm him down. That is probably my biggest mistake,” he said. Mr Hubbard said that PC Mitchison had come over to him and was being “mouthy.”   He went on “He was just showing his authority. He said a few words and I said a few words and the next thing I knew I was on the floor.” He said he had not been threatening in any way and continued “He just hit me with his full force. I did not even see him coming.” Mr Hubbard said he spent about six hours in hospital and had been told he had been arrested for assaulting PC Mitchison. He said he was later told he had been de-arrested. (Proceeding)   http://www.birminghammail.co.uk/news/midlands-news/pc-used-excessive-force-during-8753719#ICID=sharebar_twitter  
  10. Tricky situation to be in for a PC without a weapon to leverage the bandits. I suppose of the PC was armed it would only encourage criminals to start arming themselves with pistols?......
