Alright, so this is for a friend of mine. They had signed up to volunteer for Specials, ended up passing everything except for the last test, I think it was the part where they scour every bit of the internet. The reason they had given for failing my friend was that he/she didn't use correct language on social media. What's bizarre is that they're not one to use brash language or crude humour. And even more so they had met my friend, interviewed, and had them take tests. Everything was spot on except social media. Can they really use that as a means to fail someone? What's a good plan to move forward or get answers?
Hello Just wondering if there's anyone else out there in a similar position to myself. I've recently been successful throughout the whole recruitment process until the final stages of my vetting. They said due to "3rd party associations". I am so disheartened and I am going to appeal. Just querying if there was anyone else with a similar situation or (hopefully!) some success stories with appealling? It's so frustrating to get to the end and be told this.
I attended the medical today and was absolutely gutted to be told I'd been deferred due to a pre existing medical condition. It was especially hard to take considering I'd passed the fitness test and have previously passed two medical tests (for specials and for pcso). The specials was even with the same force so to be told I'm not up to the standard to be a full police officer left me pretty stunned, and those were pretty much her words. Ive now got either 3 or 6 months to receive treatment and be re examined by a doctor but if it's 6 I'll miss the last intake. It's hard to deal with after coming this far. Has anyone else ever been in a similar situation? Is it just a case of getting a doctor to sign you off as fit or does it vary from force to force?
