    Transfer process

    Hi All, I am currently a DC in Kent Police and having seen Lancashire are open for recruitment have put in an application for a transfer and have my interview tomorrow. Whilst I really enjoy my current position I am quite positive about the thought of moving back to the north and my home county, not least for the cheaper house prices so me and my patner could hopefully get on the housing ladder. I was hoping someone may have recently transfered to Lancashire and could share their experiences with me at all? Stuff such as when do they contact your current force, how does the transfer

    2018 Intakes

    The Kent forum doesn't seem to be getting used much recently but I was just wondering if there's anyone out there joining in this round of recruitment? Got my medical and uniform fitting coming up and hoping to get on the October intake.
  3. Hi there guys I am in a position at the moment where I am looking to move out of my current home county of Cornwall where I am a Special Constable to gain experience elsewhere. Kent Police are a force which have came to my attention and I am looking at putting an application in for regulars soon. I am just wondering if anybody else on here has done this, how did they find the process applying out of the force area, how did you settle? what are Kent Police like to work for as a force? Any pointers or advice is welcome Many thanks

    2017 intake

    Hi, I wondered if anyone has applied for the 2017 intake? I submitted my application form at the end of Feb, not heard anything yet but apparently the next intake is August?

    Boots boots boots

    Evening ladies and gents, Just curious, how are boots issued in Kent to PC's? Are there standard issue now (applied a few years ago and at the fitting they told me to keep my altbergs from my old Special constab - which have since gone awol ) If not is there some kind of boot allowance given or is it just use your first pay? Cheers, A

    Kent Police Issued Uniform

    As someone has already done in another forum, I suppose I should do some grown up stuff. Can someone post the issued kit and uniform lists for Regs and Specials for KPS?
  7. So yesterday was the first stage of the process which involved travelling to the training school. Definitely a trip I hope I'll be making much more before 2017 is out! The Assessment Centre briefing was essentially what it said on the tin. If you're about to go for yours, the gist is that you hand in your relevant ID/qualification/eligibility documents to the Recruitment team, and then sit with your potential future coursemates in the canteen, making small talk until you are called through to book an assessment centre date and then directed to a lecture theatre where you are given a prese

    Becoming a PC - My Blog

    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
  9. Source: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-kent-35483210 Having been at Dover on Saturday, I can only comment on what I saw- it is, however, nice to see a Chief dig his heels in and stand up for what his force is doing. It seems to be all too common for the sound of backpedalling to kick in, but it appears we've stuck to our guns here. Thoughts?

    Stab vest - Uniform fitting

    So I had my uniform fitting which was a lot of fun (although I looked like a complete child in everything). When I tried the armour, it stopped just above my belly button, and the guy said its fine, however I am concerned about the inch that is not protected. (forgot to mention this, too distracted in the whole kit!) Where does your vest stop to, and should I consider asking for a different size?

    Assessment Centre Jitters

    So I have my assessment centre coming up this week with Kent. Was told this: Your assessment will consist of the following: Competency Based Interview – lasting approximately 45 minutes Written Examination – lasting 1.5 hours I'm super worried now, because reading on all the info, Im super confused what the written exam consist of.Is it the verbal and maths, or is it verbal, maths and the report?

    Assessment Centre

    So I've submitted my application, completed the first vetting and now I have been told I've passed shortlisting! Been told to attend an assessment centre. What is involved, and do I need to prepare anything for it? Is it in Maidstone?

    Kent Specials

    Hi Guys, I expressed an interest in joining Kent Specials and I'm thankful my application form has been successful and I've been shortlisted. I am told I will attend the assessment centre in April. I wondered if anyone had any basic advice for when I receive a date to go? Thanks Dan.

    Any Margate Speicals?

    Just off the off chance, wondering if there are any specials based at Margate on here? Used to be an SC there myself and just wanted to get in touch with someone I used to special alongside many moons ago!
