    Hi, is anyone able to give abit of advice on which boots you all normally buy? I have asked recruitment but they haven't give me much information, only that they need to be able to be polished. thanks Rob
  2. Officers from British Transport Police were called to the station just before 9pm as a man wielding a knife stabbed members of the public. https://www.manchestereveningnews.co.uk/news/greater-manchester-news/manchester-victoria-knife-attack-station-15615253 Not a great start to the new year celebrations, I hope those injured are not serious and recover quickly.
  3. Hi I would be grateful for some guidance in relation to the assessment day. Am told I will receive a pack by 16th Sept but I would like to start preparing. The ability tests are my main concern, particularly numeracy. Does anyone know how many questions there are and the time limit for this. I guess the other tests are verbal reasoning and written. Any help will be grateful
  4. Hi Guys, just joined this forum after surfing it for a few months as a free member. I have just had a conditional offer come through today for a start date of Monday the 2nd of July 2018 for B division. Has anyone else been given this start date? Does anyone have any idea how long vetting will take as i am conscious of my 4 week notice period at my current job. I initially applied October 2017 had my assessment day march 5th 2018, medical April 16th and received a conditional offer 1st May so overall has been a very quick and seamless process in my opinion.
  5. Can anyone tell me how travel works whilst in training? I will be travelling to spring house using on the trains each day, am i expected to pay for this or will this be covered? Thank you
  6. Hi all, was wondering if anybody knew how long it would be after you’ve had your medical that you’d be offered a formal offer. I assume that I’ve had my medical because they want me to start soon and surely I wouldn’t have had my medical and then be made to wait for months and months. I was wondering what others experiences are with this situation and how long everybody else waited after completion of medical. Also wanted to know whether there are people who are still waiting for a start date who have been waiting a long time for C division.

    Assessment Day

    Hi Just had my date through for the assessment day and not got long to prepare, can anyone give any advice on the numerical testing? Regards Pete
  9. Good day all, Just thought I’d see if there is anybody else attending the AC next weekend and to see how your preparation is going? What is you biggest worry about the AC and which Div have you applied for. I am applying for C Div, I’ve managed to arrange half an hour with an PC at my local station today which will hopefully help with the presentation to get a better understanding daily life. Beat regards and good luck DSMGP
  10. Poor management of legislation which lacked proper consultation with the people actually doing the work. We have had a few issues with mental health recently that has left us fudging arrests for offences just to justify getting them to a safe place. To be fair I complete many Home Office/CoP courses and I could easily drop in to a DC role if a force would accept me. There is a massive Service Justice review beginning, I wouldn’t be surprised if much of the service system isn’t disbanded and some elements amalgamated. The review is well overdue defence wastes so much money on polici
  11. MSPs have passed legislation aimed at merging railway policing north of the border into Police Scotland. The Railway Policing (Scotland) Bill is the first step towards the national force taking on the role of British Transport Police (BTP). There had been a lengthy debate over the plan, with police bosses warning it could be "massively complicated" and "a real challenge". The bill passed by 68 votes to 53, with the Greens backing the SNP. Labour and the Conservatives have opposed the merger and the bill throughout, and the Lib Dems - who had supported the legislation in the
  12. A foul-mouthed yob verbally abused police for 14 minutes in a sickening tirade after a meltdown on a train. Full Story - Daily Mail What a foul mouthed idiot, 56 year old man with such a foul mouth.
  13. I wasn't sure about starting a new topic to be honest but thought this touched on general issues within Policing rather than the specific debates from today re arming etc. Although he is not a current officer I felt that it's quite refreshing to see such frank honesty about the state of Policing and resource levels. Interesting tone in the interview where Peter Kirkham actually says the government are ''lying'' Not sure if other people had seen this earlier ?

  16. Obviously be aware of opsec in relation to this question, but do the BTP have any firearms capacity in the north of the country? Manchester for example. Or is all BTP firearms based down in London?
  17. A man has been charged with the attempted murder of a special police constable after an assault at Plymouth railway station on Friday. http://m.plymouthherald.co.uk/man-has-been-charged-with-attempted-murder-of-police-constable/story-30165829-detail/story.html
  18. For all C Division recruits and applicants awaiting start dates to continue discussion.
  19. Hi All, Is it possible to get a visit to a BTP station (without committing a crime!) to talk about the role etc? I have an application in and, while I wait for the paper sift, I would like to prepare for the AC in case I'm successful. I have looked on the BTP website but can only get York to come up as my local station, I was hoping to visit or meet with a PC from Newcastle if possible. If anyone has a contact name or number they could PM me or just some general advice it would be greatly appreciated. thanks in advance.
  20. Hi all I have my assessment this weekend with BTP for the student officer role in inner London and wanted some advice on what to expect during the interview. I’ve seen from other posts that users have mentioned a presentation on BTP so I will make sure I have memorised a brief history of BTP. What else should I prepare for? I have also gone over some of the competencies for a police officer Any other tips or info would be great!
  21. Hi, It's been a very long time since I used this forum & it appears to have changed a lot since I was last here! Anyway, to get to the point, I've got an assessment/interview coming up relatively soon for a Comms Officer role with BTP. I've been told to expect a listening/typing test, a decision making test, a verbal logical reasoning test & competency based interview. The latter two I think should be ok as I've done verbal reasoning before & am aware of the competencies... However, the first two tests (listening/typing & decision making) I could do with a bit of advice on. E
  22. Anti- terrorism posters distributed by British Transport Police (BTP) in London have been taken down over rows the design resembled Nazi propaganda. Full Story -GetWestLondon
  23. Terror review suggests London police forces should merge By Nick Beake Home Affairs Correspondent, BBC News 28 October 2016 London Armed Response Vehicle (ARV) officers during a Marauding Terrorist Firearms Attack Training exercise Image caption The review makes a total of 127 recommendations A major review of London's ability to deal with a terror attack has suggested the three police forces serving the capital could be merged. Lord Harris of Haringey said the Home Office should consider combining the Met Police, the City of London Police and th
  24. Hi all, I will be stating as a student police officer with BTP shortly and the main thing I am concerned with is what to expect on my first week there, especially to do with the physical/fitness tests. In Feb this year I passed(just!) the assessment day bleep test having not done any training whatsoever or even stepped foot in the gym for three years, since then I've been training on a cross trainer I bought, training 2-3 times a week since Feb. I'm concerned I'll let myself down with my level of fitness and I'll be kicked out then, end of the road. What should I expect you during my firs
  25. Not going into the full details but anyone who has seen the chiefs update on the intranet will see that the old 'expansion of remit' is kicking off again after a hiatus. Specifically it looks as if: Airports and Motorway policing are being discussed at a governmental level and potential BTP's role in the future undertaking these functions. What is your opinion? Can we do it? Should we do it?
