  1. I wrote this diary some time ago when the older forums were still active, hope you all enjoy. My life as a special started when I was at university, at the time I was studying Public Services. A friend who is now a serving officer was applying for the specials at the time and kept telling me to apply as he thought I'd be good for the job. So without giving it any thought I applied, once I'd hit send that was it, I felt a stone sink to my stomach. Around two months later I received some correspondence from a police email address, at first I wondered what I'd done but it turned out to be a recruitment officer telling me that I'd passed the paper sift. The email warned me that the real application would come through. A couple of days later I received a fully packed A4 envelope re-confirming everything that the email had said and also my paper application forms. I was being asked everything: Health, Financial, References etc. Honestly, 101 questions has nothing on these applications. I was quite concerned with the Health as I'd previously had a very serious health condition. However I completed the forms and hoped for the best. Again around a couple of months later I got a phone call from the same recruitment officer stating that the service were happy with my application and that they'd like to offer me to come to an assessment day. I'd heard that these days were notoriously difficult to pass, so was starting to worry. All this from someone who originally wasn't too bothered about joining. I was now starting to really get into it. I think Road Wars and Traffic cops were a lot to do with it though. The day came round, so I put on my best and only suit and went with high hopes. I arrived at the testing centre, gave my name at reception and was told to sit in the corner. As I looked around the room I saw 7 other faces all looking as worried as I was. All of a sudden the reception door opened and a tall figure in a police uniform called us all in. We were taken into a room and sat down on individual tables. Before us were some papers, a clock beeped and we began. After the test was done we were told to go wait in the reception again, to await our interview. Interview!? I wasn't told I'd be doing an interview, my heart raced and my brain froze trying to think of what to say. I was led into a dark, boxy room with two officers already sat there. I felt like I was on a murder charge or something, one officer greeted me and asked me the basic questions of name and such. As the interview got underway I was asked questions about all my life and also how I felt I could meet the force competencies. I made sure I followed the other officer's body language and thought about my answers before saying them. About 30-45 minutes passed and I was told thank you for coming and we'll be in touch. As you do, I left the building thinking my police career had come to an end. I wasn't prepared, there was no way I could have passed the tests. I later found out a couple of weeks after that I passed my assessment and interview. It seemed I was the only one out of the 7 other people. Quite some time passed before I got my date for the medical, however when it came I was very nervous due to having a previous medical complaint. Again I put on my lovely suit and arrived at the medical testing centre. At first I was asked about my health and such, then I had the lovely drugs test whereby they took some of my DNA and my lovely yellow urine. I was then asked to sit in a small box and place some headphones on, very low frequencies were played to me and I had to push a button when I could hear them. It was a very strange feeling; however one I managed to pass. During the end of the test, I was asked to go speak to the force doctor just to confirm whether he thought it would be ok for me to work, he wasn't sure so wrote to my consultant. That was it, I had passed everything they'd thrown at me and was now awaiting a training course date. I couldn't wait, nor could I believe that I'd got this far. A lot of time passed and at one point I had thought of applying to another force as they were taking applications for regulars however on the day I was going to phone them, I received a call from my recruitment officer telling me he had a date for me. I couldn't tell you how pleased I was when I heard that. Me, a special constable... it was really going to happen. Training was a lot of fun, it was based over six months worth of weekends, we learnt about the core basics of law and mainly things we'd be dealing with once we got out on those mean streets. The trainers were fantastic, always there to lend a hand whether you were at training or at home, they were nice enough to give you their personal mobile numbers for help. The group that I was in was quite a diverse group of some old and some young, but we all got along and are still friends to date. During the training we had a couple of tests to contend with, which you should make sure you revise for! I think the day to look most forward to is going for your uniform fitting, It really makes it feel like it's becoming a reality! A couple of the days to watch out for are your defensive tactics (yes it's true you do get sprayed with CS and yes it hurts) your pre-patrol day (such good fun, and informative too) and your attestation day (start polishing your boots as soon as you get them and learn how to march). So that's it. I'm now a fully fledged Special Constable, of course I'm still a probationer and I know the work starts here. Be prepared for about 35-40% of things you've learned to mean something. Since I've been patrolling I've realised that they don't teach you quite a lot of things, but I guess that's for you to learn. Now that I'm based at my station I'm mainly tasked with NPT duties. This can range from patrolling events, scene guarding, to going out with Response. The new teams I'm working with are lovely and all are very helpful. I don't think you seem to get the officers that don't respond well to Specials anymore, I haven't yet found anyone like that anyway. (Part 2) Hi Guys, So thought I'd add some more to my diary as I can see a lot of people seem to what to know what you do once you've completed training. Hope this helps. So once I'd completed training I was extremely excited but nervous too, no more playing anymore, what I do now actually means something. The day after my attestation I was straight on the phone to my senior section officer asking for shifts, he was quoting me 3 weeks before I could come in. Pfft I thought, I wanted to get out with my new uniform and use everything I'd learnt. About 2 minutes after I put the phone down I had a sergeant phoning me asking if I could come in on Friday night and he'll show me round and put me out on shift. Well I thought, of course I'll accept, you couldn't stop me. Friday came around, and I went to my station I nervously got my things out of my car and walked over to the help-desk asking for my sergeant. I was greeted by him and got told to put on my uniform including stabvest. I was then shown to our main hub and invited into a team briefing. The sergeant announced I was the new special, everyone said Hi and that was that. I was tasked with another special and we went out on active duty. This was it, I was a real police officer and I was doing real Police things. The officer 'Tom' told me we'd have to make a quick trip up to another station and I'd be given all my admin stuff like Fixed Penalty Notices, Stop & Search forms etc. I was also given my CS and Pocketbook. That was it for that night, I only did a couple of hours but already I could see that I was going to like this. Just driving past people in a police van gave me such a feeling of power and responsibility. In that these people were relying on us to go and help them in there hour of need. When I was a young boy I used to try and listen to the police radio's through our all tape machine, every so often you'd hear a crackle of police officers talking to the Comms, but now, I was listening to it through my earpiece. My second shift was fantastic was very different, My sergeant told me it would be very beneficial for me to come in as we did drugs raids on various pubs around our force area. (I was very lucky to be allowed this, but it was a great experience and real 'eye' opener.) I had to use my airwaves terminal and my pocket book which was great. My sergeant was pushing me into situations I wasn't used to, like searching people and doing 117 checks. After we did the raids, we then went out on proactive patrol. It was fantastic! I got my first blue light run, it really is as great as it sounds. We did lots more stop and searches and went to some real jobs. I saw my first domestic (it's quite tough to deal with), car chases, pub fights and nuisance youths. So I'm now around 2 months in and I can honestly the best thing I've ever done. If you're considering don't give it a second thought. I got my first arrest which was awesome, it was for a warrant. As hard as you try I'm sure you'll forget your caution. A lot of the teams are very helpful and they'll help you obtain your first arrest, after that your on your own and it can get quite competitive. It really is true what your trainers say, the more you put into it, the more you'll get out of it. If you get a chance to take part in things, don't hesitate, it'll probably be fantastic for your training and your competencies, which you've to meet within 2 years. (Part 3) Now, where do I begin! I decided to do 2 8 hour shifts to make up my hours, to think I wasn't bothered about the shifts I was wrong. My first night I was paired up with a new constable from another force, it was nice as it was somebody new to talk to (make sure you get to know everyone, they're going to be your new family) Our first call, we blue lighted it to the call, it was a dropped 999 call so we blued and two'd it to the destination, it still puts a huge grin on my face even though I'm only 3 months in service. As we got there in turned out to be a domestic where a woman had beaten her husband nearly to death. I don't care what anyone says short of going to a scene where somebody has died, domestics are probably the worst jobs you can go to. This is where your resilience will definitely come in handy. We arrested the female and took her to the station, she was laughing and joking about what she'd done. It later turned out that she'd split his skull open and broke 4 of his ribs. My colleague was finishing so I stayed on, until the finish. As there was no-one in the station I could go out with, it was organised for me to go on Response again but with a sister station to us. I love response, I've only done it twice but if you get the chance take it, you'll really learn stuff. We went to a few calls of fights and underage drinking, however it was an hour before we were both finishing and we got an emergency call to go to a burglary in progress, I'd been to places which had been broken into but not one in progress, my heart started pounding as I could feel the adrenaline starting to kick in. I replied over our radio and that was it, fast driving, blues and two's were on and we were gone. When we arrived we could hear glass breaking inside the house, I drew my baton and reached for my CS just in case we slowly entered the building. As both me and my colleague searched downstairs a floorboard twisted indicating that there was movement upstairs we both shouted POLICE at the tops of our voices, at that point I saw someone land on the grass in the garden, I was gone off the chase was on. My colleague called for the dogs and then was after the other person. I felt like my heart was going to explode, I was running faster than I'd ever run before through gardens and driveways. As a keen rugby player, I caught him and made one of the best tackles of my life. Before he could utter a word he was handcuffed and cautioned. His friend got away meaning we had both the dogs and a helicopter out. He was later found around 30 minutes after. I finished 2 hours after I should have, but I wasn't bothered I'd got another arrest and a damn good one at that. My second shift was spent with a traffic officer, this was just as fun as I have a keen interest in cars. If you get offered to do this, take it, you will learn more in a shift with traffic than in 5-10 shifts dealing with traffic. Our night was mainly spent checking cars and taking response calls when not busy. Hope this entertains you all, and if you have any questions regarding being a special or recruitment, I'll try and answer them as best I can. Adz
  2. Hi guys, so I thought I'd move over the thread I created originally on PS.com and bring it over here, enjoy! CKP in general: Information taken from College of Policing website. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- CKP regarding Metropolitan Police: Do I need CKP to join as a Police Constable with the Metropolitan Police? Yes, if you want to become a Police Constable with us then yes, you will need CKP with one of the approved providers that can be found through the College of Policing website. You will need to have COMPLETED the KFC course prior to starting training. Will the CKP guarantee me a job as a Police Constable with the Metropolitan Police? No. You will still need to pass Day 1, Day 2, Vetting/References AND Training. Remember CKP does not guarantee you a job, it just makes you eligible to start training. Do I need CKP to join as a Police Constable if I am a Special Constable with the Metropolitan Police? Nope, you don't need CKP if you are in the Metropolitan Special Constabulary to join as a Police Constable with the Metropolitan Police. I am a Special Constable with another force, do I need the CKP to join as a Police Constable in the Metropolitan Police? Yes. This is because if you are with another force you are deemed as an external candidate. There are no rumours or any news of this changing any time soon and I think this will probably stick. Will the Metropolitan Police be getting rid of the CKP? Not for the foreseeable future. If you have heard rumours, please for god sake ignore them. If anything official is released I'm sure it will be on the Metropolitan Police website and here. Will the Metropolitan Police providing funding for the CKP? I believe if you are a successful candidate in passing the SEARCH assessments then the funding comes in the form of an interest free loan, paid back from your wage once you're in service. However, confirm this with MetHR as there could be certain requirements and/or the information could have changed. I have already attained a SEARCH assessment pass in the last 2 years, do I still need the CKP? Oh yes. I have attained the PLC in the last 3-4 years, do I still need to do the CKP? As it stands, and as far as I'm aware you will not have to do the CKP - but like most things, I would confirm this with MetHR. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- These are all the questions I could think of. If you have any more questions, please ask below. If anyone thinks I am missing any information or any information is incorrect please add below and I will add or correct . As it stands, this is a thread for External Met PC applicants. Hope this helps! Useful links: College of Policing Metropolitan Police Careers Bluelight Other approved providers
  3. Transferring somewhere new

    Hello, I wanted to create a topic about a few countries that accept british transfers or foreign applicants that have over the past few years have had some british bobbies or regular UK citizens transfer and join up the police abroad. Now don't get me wrong I still love the police here but for those that would find this helpful for one reason or another, I am creating a topic which I and others ,if they wish, can add to. I am doing this because I have gathered some research and thought it would be helpful for this information to be shared, have a good day and hope this helps Country 1: USA ​Requirements: Most states require citizenship but a select few allow you to join with a green card or any other document that means you have the right to live and work Age: Varies from 18-25 Transfer opportunities: Very few if any transfers have been recorded that I can find from UK to USA have to join via regular external officer States and departments: The following are which allow you to join on just a 'Green card or other' Illinois Chicago Police Department (CPD): The department allows you to join if a citizen of another country. This was quoted from their website I am a citizen of a foreign country. Am I eligible to become a Chicago police officer? Yes, as long as you have an Employment Authorization Document (EAD) from U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. Proof, such as an Alien Registration Card (Green Card) will be required if you are called for further processing. About the CPD: Chicago is the third largest city by population in America and has one of largest amount of municipal police officers in the US. Louisiana New Orleans Police Department (NOPD): The department has perhaps the best website out of all the departments I looked at, that had most of the answers. This was quoted from their website "People may apply from outside the US, however, all applicants must physically report to New Orleans, Louisiana, for testing and to initiate a background investigation. Applicants will be required to make two trips to New Orleans, minimum.All applicants must have the legal right to work in the United States prior to application, but do not have to be United States citizens to apply for a position with the New Orleans Police Department. Currently, applicants do not have to live within New Orleans to become an officer with the New Orleans Police Department." Helpful links: http://joinnopd.org Other states: Alaska Hawaii Ohio More countries to come soon hope this was useful, this is only the information I found, how accurate and up to date it is I don't know Fizzypopbang

  11. Today I learned - Law E&W

    So I've learned some interesting facts about law today which I thought I'd share. Hopefully others will have some interesting facts too. If you quote a fact though, please link to your source. Numero Uno The offence of causing a public nuisance has a top end sentence of life imprisonment. The definition is: " It is defined as an unlawful act or omission which endangers or interferes with the lives, comfort, property or common rights of the public." Whilst it's still a crime, most of the cases where you'd use it has statutory instruments that are more applicable and so charging decisions should give preference to that. http://www.cps.gov.uk/legal/s_to_u/sentencing_manual/public_nuisance/ http://www.inbrief.co.uk/offences/public-nuisance.htm Nummer Zwei If you are sentenced for any crime, you can be given a driving disqualification regardless of whether the offence is driving related. http://www.cps.gov.uk/legal/s_to_u/sentencing_and_ancillary_orders_applications/#a30

  13. examples from SC and day to day?

    hello every one, I'm just getting started on my application form for the regulars. Is it a good idea to use examples from being a SC or is it best to stick to day to day life? Also, do you get extra credit for covering multiple competencies in one response? A few of mine have got a bit of everything. Cheers, Matt
  14. Since this area is a little quiet, I thought I would add my little adventure on my process of becoming a Police Support Volunteer. I had shown previous interest in the Police service as a Special in 2005 and a PCSO in 2007/2008, the first two times I failed miserably at the interview stages. The third time however the interview could not have gone more smoothly, pending vetting and medical I was already given a start date for training and what area I would likely be assigned to (Was actually exactly where I lived). Unfortunately the "nature of the beast" that vetting is I failed and as per regulations was not told why. I wrote a letter to the constabulary possibly to the Chief Constable asking not for the reason but when should I apply again to ensure that vetting would be passable or would it be an indefinite no. I recieved a letter a few weeks later stating that I would be eligible to reapply after 2012. Fast forward a few years.. I went to visit my parents in Christmas 2013 and went shopping to Sainsburys with my father. Lancashire Constabulary had placed a wrecked car in the car park showing how drinking and driving affects lives especially over the Christmas period. At this time I am currently doing a Masters Degree at UCLan in Archaeology and thought that volunteering would be a good start to get some experience in the police service. Not feeling so confident that I would get through the specials selection, even though my life and military experience has changed me since my initial attempts I looked for another way to volunteer. I discovered PSV roles which in all honesty I had never heard of before. I do some further research, get in contact with HR and I am advised to send application forms... To be continued...
  15. http://www.lancashire.police.uk/Content/UploadedImages/Ext_Ad_IA_and_Vetting_Asst_S10-14.docx Although I'm due to start my Volunteering role in January, I saw this advertised on the website. I spent the night writing up my 150 words for each eligibility criteria to add on the application form and thought I would give it a go. I will still continue with my volunteering regardless. I'm assuming the role will start midway(ish) through next year which is good as I would have finished at Uni around April/May time till September. It states it's only temporary for 6 months so thought it's worth an application. Worse thing they can say is no Maybe I can do a "How I became Police Staff" similar to my PSV topic if I get past any of the stages that is.
  16. Hello, I had a conversation today with I believe HR and the lady said that for the Specials they don't do an Assessment Centre. Is anyone able to confirm? I am at the JST stage of my application. Sorry if I am not meant to be on here yet! Thanks

    Hi all, Applied online and application form was all done online - there was no savable word document available etc. Therefore... I do not have a copy of my application to refer to come the assessment day! DISASTER Does anyone reasonably think that I could reasonably request a copy of it from the HR team in preparation for my assessment centre? Shall I think of completely new examples to refer to come the assessment/final interview? Or is there much chance of the panel giving me a reminder of what I wrote about? Advice much appreciated.
  22. From Special to Regular

    Hi all... I've been in the job since the end of November as a Special Constable. I've been out on as many shifts as possible so far and thoroughly enjoyed my time on each one. I'm convinced this is the job for me and am 99% sure that I'd like to apply to the regulars the first chance I get. Rumour has it that my force are recruiting twice this year, so I'd be keen on getting an application in! Really, I'm just looking for any tips at all that you guys could give me... How does the Regs application differ from the Specials; vastly, I'm sure - but it what way? Does the fact that I've only been a special since end of November help or hinder my chances? Honest answers please, as this could help determine my decision in whether or not I put in an application when recruitment opens! Thanks, Ed P.S. I recently failed an application at the paper sift stage for a student officer position with BTP (applications closed in November) - will this affect my application to any Home Office force and need I declare it on an application form?
  23. All, I am trying to transfer between TVP and Avon and Somerset, but am experiencing difficulties. A&S are refusing to progress my application until TVP releases my entire HR file - which TVP has refused to do. Has anyone here who's transferred previously experienced a similar process, and could they let me know the outcome, by PM if preferable. TIA, Adam
  24. Useful books

    Can anyone recommend any books that may help with the application process for the regulars? Seem to remember a few books on the other forum, but can't remember the name of any of them. Thanks.
  25. Hi there, If you have seen the new member secion, you will notice that I am a new member currently applying for A&S Special Constabulary. I have just completed the SJT and will find out later this week if i have passed through to the application from stage. Can anyone shed some light on where i can find out about what training i will need to attend (if all goes to plan)? Also what can i do to prepare for the interview and assessment stages? I look forward to hearing from anyone with some light on the situation. Many thanks, BaldingDad
