Hi guys, sorry for another vetting quary/sob story but any optimism/supportwould be hugely appreciated. Here goes.. so I applied back in August to become a Special Constable for Avon and Somerset police. Passed the online test, went to open evening; all good. Then had the paper sift; this time last year when I applied I failed at this point however this year the god/s were looking down on me and I got through. Result. Next came the assesment centre at HQ. Was super nervous, didn’t know how I fared. Got my results last Wednesday; I smashed it! 5/15 A’s 9 B’s and 1 C(50% I’m serving the public, very close to failing). 78% overall, 55% is a pass for this constabulary so pretty good I think. However, here comes the hiccup; the vetting. Issues number 1; back in 2012 I got a fine for drunken disorderly; got caught peeing down an allyway on a NYE night out. Really stupid, biggest regret of my life so far. Issue no 2; about 3 months ago I got caught running a red by a traffic camera. Again so stupid. I took the ‘What’s driving us course’ in lieu of points and a fine. So still have zero points on my licence. Issue no 3. My dad. He went to Borstal when he was a kid, no idea what for, he’s never told me. We live approx 250 miles away and we only see each other a couple times a year. Small caveat on this; my Grandma is a magistrate and I assumed her and her family woild of been vetted for her role; if so then she passed. So shouldnt be too much of a hiccup I (really) hope. It does say on the A & S vetting page on their website that the main people that fail vetting are people that have had FPNs within the last 5 years. I clearly fail in this department so is there any point even going to the physical/medical/ biometrical testing in a couple of weeks if I’m likely to fail at vetting? any words of wisdom, optimism would be greatly welcomed
