  1. GMP Cadets?

    Hi all, Just wondering if anyone in GMP knows if the Cadets are still being done, tried to contact the cadet email for Bolton Cadet Scheme but had no response and I have tried to email for over a few years and had no response at all. Regards OWEN
  2. Divisions

    I'm after a bit of advice regarding GMP divisions & police stations please from those in the know. I'm due to start traing with GMP (regs) soon. I have already submitted my 3 divisional choices. Trafford, City of Manchester & Stockport, in that order. I know that in Trafford there is 2 police stations i could be posted to, Altrincham or Stretford. Can anybody tell me which police stations i could be posted to if i got CoM or Stockport divisions? Since submitting my choices a few months ago ive spoken to a few serving officers who have questioned why i put Trafford as first choice. My reason is purely geographical. They've suggested that as a probationer i really should be wanting to go to City of Manchester division as it would be best for my career. I'm contemplating asking to officially change my choices around and put CoM first and Trafford second. My main concern with putting CoM first is that i could get posted to a police station north of the city and this would be a nightmare commute for me. Elizabeth Slinger Road or Wythenshawe would be good, but apart from the division, you get no choice on actual police stations. Thus the risk of me getting posted north of the city was to great so i put Trafford as my first choice. I live a few mins to the west of the M6 in Cheshire force area (20 mins from Altrincham police station). Also, I've heard somebody say that once you've been in long enough to start thinking about specialising or going on additional courses, its much easier to do this if you've been on CoM division. Is this true?
  3. October Intake

    Think I've spoken to a couple of people, but who is waiting to hear back about the October intake? I applied in February and still waiting to hear back from the final background checks, hope it isn't full by the time they are completed otherwise it's a wait until January.
  4. A woman's body found in a lake is believed to be that of a serving officer with Greater Manchester Police, investigators have said. Full Story - Telegraph
  5. Shift Pattern

    Hi Everyone, I've tried to find this out from looking around, but can't find anything that is specific to GMP. Can anybody put up a general shift pattern for a new officer after training please? (obviously, if there is such a thing as general) I'm sure this is a question that every new recruit must have before being accepted. Thanks in advance.
  6. Uniform issue (regs)

    Is anyone able to list the up to date uniform list issued to regulars?
  7. Hey folks, If I have posted in the wrong section I do apologise. However, does anyone know if the HTCU (high tech crime unit) within the Met Police has some "brand new" technology that no one seems to of heard of that can break/hack into Apple iPhones (old and new) or am I being fed a load of bull by PSB??? Thanks.
  8. July/October Intakes

    Hey everyone, Does anyone know what the situation with the July regulars intake is? Will people who applied in February be on it or will they be put on the October intake? Cheers
  9. Hi everyone, I'm trying to re-apply for the Police Officer recruitment that has come and ends on the 12th March. On the previous recruitment I had passed every stage but I have failed my final interview. As unlucky as it sounds, my 6 months would of been over on the 23rd March. So I'm missing it by 11 days... Do you reckon they'd have any discretion in this matter? My final interview date was delayed further back meaning my 6 months started later than it should aswell. It's just frustrating how I'm only missing it by 11 days! Thank you.
  10. What would you do?

    I made contact with GMP HR by phone a few weeks ago requesting an application form for PC recruitment that is due to start soon afaik. I am aware they are not recruiting just yet but a GMP regular on here told me not to bother keep checking the website but to just ring up and ask them to send a form. As expected they told me on the phone that they couldn't send me an application form yet but would send me an Expression of Interest form by email and that i should fill it in and email it back. I did this, but then received a letter in the post dated the next day saying "that they had tried to contact me by telephone & email without success and they needed some more information. Could i send that information in by email to the following address...blah blah blah". So i did. The strange thing is they could only have got my postal address from my completed EOI form i initially sent and the addition info they asked for in the letter was just stuff that was also on the initial form i sent. I gave it 48hrs then sent a follow up email asking if they could confirm receipt of my form. No response. I then left it 7 days and phoned up HR asking if they have received my form. They chap i spoke to gave me his personal work email and told me to send the information to him and he would submit it. I did this and again specifically asked for confirmation that he'd received it. I heard nothing for 3 days so sent ANOTHER email asking if he could confirm that they have received my EOI form and logged it. That was yesterday and as yet I've still not had a reply. So out of numerous emails to GMP recruitment/HR using a few different email addresses, the only contact I've had back was by post saying that they wanted more information BECAUSE THEY COULDN'T CONTACT ME. You couldn't make it up. I know some people will say don't panic it's only an EOI form, but my concern is that recruitment will open soon and they will turn round and say that it's only open to people who have submitted the interest form. Im sure there are many on here who will appreciate what you go through when trying to join the police and understand the sort of paranoia you get. To top this off i applied to my local division for a 'Ride Along' to use as part of my application process. I had a reply from an 'Operations Assistant' who has never heard of a Ride Along but would get back to me. That was over a week ago. Guess what?... I've also used their own online form to book a trip out as a 'Community Reporter' thinking this may be the only way to get on a Ride Along. Guess what?... So it's got me thinking what should i do now. Do i just sit back and assume they did receive my form? If so, i think it's very poor that they don't acknowledge receipt whatsoever. I appreciate they are a busy department but it's quite easy to set up an Auto Response telling people that they'll get a proper reply within x amount of days. I'm worried that if i phone them up again and ask that I'll just be told to send it again by email, or I'll be logged and get my name known as a pain in the a**e. Rant over.
  11. Half of house burglaries are not investigated by two of Britain’s biggest police forces under a policy which sees a third of a million crime reports shelved every year, it emerged yesterday. Full Story - Daily Mail Maybe people should be a bit more responsible and invest in CCTV for their homes? The hot weather is upon us no doubt people leaving their windows open will lead to an increase in burglaries. The DM comment section is amusing though, blame the police for not working hard enough, police cuts are just an excuse for lazy policing!
  12. GMP X Cars

    I've been thoroughly enjoying watching episodes of X cars from around 1997 on youtube, such as this: Quite incredible how different car crime is now, who remembers ringing? I haven't heard that term for years! The numbers of cars being stolen in Manchester at that time are utterly staggering. I guess modern immobilisers have slowly killed off kids nicking cars for a laugh. Love the patrol cars, Cavalier SRIs, Escort and Sierra Cosworths. Does any force drive anything remotely like that now?
  13. Any rumors for Specials recruitment 16/17

    Hi all, anyone know of any rumors for Specials recruitment in 16/17? Kind Regards Owen
  14. I'm currently a serving Special Constable in North Wales, but the other half is keen to move up to Manchester soon in hope of finding herself a job there. I'm eager to join a force full time with GMP being the ideal employer for me if I moved to the vicinity. Is there currently a recruitment freeze in GMP? Do they only recruit internally from their own PCSOs and Specials? Just looking for a bit of insider knowledge really. Thanks in advance.
  15. GMP Chat

With the new forum system, there doesn't seem to be a place to post general TV stuff like this. I believe a new subforum will be created soon though.

  21. The Detectives BBC2

    Has anyone else watched the first episode of The Detectives? What did you think of it? For those who haven't it is a 3 part series that follows the Serious Sexual Offences Unit of GMP I might be a little biased but I thought it was a really good programme and I have noticed a lot of positive support for it.
