Sitting waiting

I've never written a blog and so I apologise in advance ... Thought it was about time I started blogging as I'm quite often told, I've always got something to say. 02/02/2016 - Here we go I may as well start the blog and share where i'm at at the moment. My "special" journey began 15/18 months ago I suppose, I had heard word on the street that there was going to be a recruitment for regular officers as well as special constables coming up in my area and having been patiently waiting fo

Single Crewed Night Shift

I've been operational as a full time PC for about five months, after having four months of training, and two years as a SC prior to joining up. I still love every day, I still look forward to going in and pulling on my stab vest, and it feels exactly like it did as a SC, except that I get a wage each month and I get a lot more point to point radio calls (either social or supervisory lol). Some people will say there's a lot more paperwork, there's a lot more to it etc. but I exposed myself to a l

A busy night

Rank SC Service 12 months (to the day - today is the anniversary of Attestation) Shift: 2100-0700 Saturday Night Duty: Response 2045:  Arrive and see who is about.  It is a 'Super Saturday' where accumulated hours owed are called in.  They happen every 5 weeks and mean extra bodies.  The problem is two cars are tied up on a warrant so with 2 Specials swelling the ranks further we head out Six-Up in the van (crazy numbers for our town). 2120:  Arrive at an address to carr

First ever day out

Hello! So for those who don't know, I'm a student officer with West Midlands. The people up high had decided that it was about time for our first taste of real policing so they booked us an attachment day with real officers doing real things. For my own entertainment as much as yours, I thought I'd make a little post about my first experiences. Date: 19/11/2015 TOD: 0830-1630 Attachment to Neighbourhood Team I arrive at the big city station and immediately find there are about 10 p

All kitted up and ready to go..

So I arrived at the station for my first ever shift as a fully attested special constable. Although my rank still stands as "trainee" special constable, it still feels good to finally be allowed out on the streets.  So it was a Sunday afternoon at 14.45. I made my way to the second floor of Maidstone police station and knocked on the LDPT (local district police team) sergeants office. I informed the SGT who I was and he told me to go wait in the office in the next room. 10 minutes went by,

Interviews: A view from across the desk.

Hello all, As many of the posts on this forum relate to recruitment, I thought I'd make a blog entry about my experiences as an SC interviewer in my force. Hopefully this will be useful to those of you who are thinking about applying or currently waiting for your assessment centres, specifically those applying as an SC. I have been on both sides of the table for SC interviews, I remember mine well & remember the feeling of being sat in the waiting room, flinching every time the door opened

About us

Police Community was originally founded in 2014 by two serving Police Officers.

In 2016 it was incorporated as a limited company called RAW Digital Media Limited and then purchased 3 other forums; Police Specials, UK Police Online and Police UK to form the largest policing discussion forum network in the UK. In 2019 the decision was taken to merge all four forums into this main form of www.police.community
