  1. Hi all, So I was recently alerted by a colleague to the fact that soon probationary officers would be allowed to carry taser despite not being outside their 2 year student officer period. At first I understood it to mean that officers going through their basic training would receive it however I have since had it clarified. For those of you not in the know regarding this I have attached some of the details: All officers who volunteer to carry a Taser are required to have the support of their supervisor, endorsement at Superintendent level and pass the Taser training course. In addition, student officers who undertake the training are required to: have been assessed as safe and lawful for independent patrol have demonstrated experience of successfully managing conflict hold a review with a supervisor following use of a Taser Full post for those interested: https://www.gov.uk/government/news/selected-student-police-officers-to-receive-taser-training I'm curious to know your thoughts regarding this whether you see this as a good thing for police forces or whether you have doubts about it.

  2. Immigration Enforcement are recruiting in the Southern Region :: ASSISTANT IMMIGRATION OFFICER CLOSING DATE 20th FEBRUARY 2017 If you fancy a change of career or are are looking to enter a job similar to policing, then take a look at the following link: https://www.civilservicejobs.service.gov.uk/csr/jobs.cgi?jcode=1525422 Annualised Hours Working (AHW) contracts are currently ~34% so the following salaries apply to new recruits: - London: £24,336 + AHW = ~£32,610 - National: £20,352 + AHW = ~£27,271 (above salaries are approximates) As an AIO you will work on an accredited training programme known as "Pathway" - this is similar to being a Probationary Constable. Once completed you will obtain the rank of IO, becoming fully independent and receiving a pay rise. If anyone has any questions about the job, about life as an IO or needs help with the recruitment process, feel free to post a reply to this topic or message me directly

    Firearms Query

    Hey all, I was recently at a police training site where we were shown around all of the specific training areas including firearms. It's been my life long dream to become a firearms officer (yes I know I'm in for a hard slog) but I'm wondering if there is any pre-requisites to becoming an AFO? I'm aware of all of the usual stuff like having to have a good service record etc but I'm curious to know if you can join if you have a fear of heights, sounds daft I know but I noticed at this training site there was an abseil tower.

    Hey guys, I'm due to start my police officer training soon as whilst I was at work I noticed that somebody was selling the Blackstone's Handbook for Policing Students 2014 for £15 and was wondering whether it would be worth buying? Have any other you used it and would you say it's worth it? Thanks in advance! XA84
  12. I'm interested to know what inspired people to become or want to become a police officer and what steps you have taken? I found it hard to imagine myself in a different job role so ever since I've been a kid I wanted to be in the police. I joined the specials last year and it just inspired me more into doing it full time. Currently going through the application process for the regs.

    Hello all. I was hoping some of you could tell me how promotion works in the Metropolitan Police Force? When are you allowed to go for promotion? When are promotion boards (or whatever it is they use) usually done? Does being in certain roles such as an AFO (for example) help/hinder/not affect your promotional prospects? Is there a minimum age limit for promotion? How quickly could you (theoretically) get to officer level (Inspector and up)?
