  1. 2015 Police Officer intake

    Thought I would get an active thread for the 2015 intake. I've just submitted my application. Info here: http://www.cleveland.police.uk/careers/Police-Constable-Opportunities.aspx I believe it's open until 2000 applications are received. I think they are pushing for a September start date and a further May 2016 one if I remember rightly.
  2. Filling out the application form

    I'm currently filling out an application form for the regs and I have downloaded the word document from the constabulary website. If you see below it says "you should make it clear what their relationship to you is, i.e. if you are referring to your full sister you should delete brother, half and step. My problem is that I can only edit the parts in grey as it is a protected form. I've tried following a tutorial online to unlock the form and it's also password protected. Then I'm led on to a page which tells me how to remove the password protection, but surely they can't have made it this hard! I was thinking about just writing "Full brother" and then my brothers name, however it clearly says to remove the text. I think this form is the one that most forces use so I'm sure some people may have run into this problem before. Any suggestions? If anybody wants to download the application form and have a go here's the link Application Form
  3. It's the big question of the year...does anybody have any idea (based on experience of course) when they MAY open recruitment for 2015, MSC-PC? I ask this realising nobody ACTUALLY knows, however based on previous recruitment drives etc. Thanks all!!
  4. Recruitment for 4 years

    Been informed that the MDP will be recruiting 300 per year for 4 years. This is from a recruit who started on the 5th Jan. I am surprised by this as I thought it was 100 per year for 5 years. Has anyone else been told this?
  5. Good morning all, I once again find myself in the wonderfully mysterious and intimidating world of Police recruitment. Does anyone happen to know how strict the assessors are with regards how long the interview lasts. I remember for my specials assessment being somewhat hung up over making my responses last for the full five minutes, although I feel like I can provide much better examples this time round RE the competencies due to my time as a special, I feel as if making them last 5 minutes would just make me come across as "waffly" as it were. Also, does anyone know what a force interview actually consists of (particularly for Dorset), as a Hampshire special I have never previously done one before. Many thanks, Matt
  6. Hello all. Happy New year! I've heard some rumours that the current score needed to join as a PC has been further reduced below 50%. Does anyone know if this is true or if it's just the usual grapevine rubbish?
  7. Hi all, Can anyone advise me what the core competencies are for MSC to PC? Many thanks!
  8. 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.

  10. Dorset Police Officer Recruitment

    Fifth of January 2015 PC recruitment opens again for Dorset. More information here. Good luck to those that apply!
  11. More than 600 people have applied for the Fast Track programme in forces across England and Wales which will see exceptional candidates reach the rank of inspector in three years.   The programme, which is still open to police staff, graduates and police specials to apply, has received 657 applications across 27 police forces.   Of those, 361 are male and 296 are female. This includes 55 black or minority ethnic candidates.   Fast Track is an accelerated three-year promotion and development programme which gives the most talented graduates the skills, knowledge and experience to advance to the rank of inspector from police constable within three years.   The application process is still open for police staff, graduates and specials and you can apply online through a dedicated website.   Candidates will be expected to tackle danger head on while other members of the public turn away. They will have to justify and account for their actions to ensure they are working ethically, proportionally and to the standards the public expect.   The programme is a blend of classroom learning delivered at regional training centres, and operational training and development in the force where they have applied. Candidates will be supported to learn what it takes to become a police officer and to quickly put that learning into practice.   Chief Superintendent Nicola Dale, who leads the fast track programme at the College of Policing, said: “This is really about the high calibre candidates because it is such a significant challenge to become an inspector after just three years. “The high number of applications reflects the interest that police staff, graduates and specials have to seek a career in the highly demanding role of an inspector.   “Potential candidates have until Friday to apply and I would encourage them to work carefully through the self-selection questionnaire and high potential development tool which are on the website.”   Successful candidates will begin training in September 2015.   Fast Track also opened in October this year for serving constables to accelerate to the rank of inspector. Most forces have now closed their application windows, but officers are advised to check with the force they wish to apply to. The programme will reopen in 2015.   Notes to Editors On Friday, 12th December 2014 Chief Superintendent Nicola Dale held a Q&A with interested candidates on Twitter from 1-2pm. You can view the answers given by searching #fasttrack and viewing the College of Policing timeline @CollegeofPolice The forces taking part are:   Avon & Somerset Constabulary Bedfordshire Police British Transport Police Cambridgeshire Constabulary Cheshire Constabulary Dyfed Powys Police Essex Police Kent Police Greater Manchester Police Hertfordshire Constabulary Humberside Police South Yorkshire Police Metropolitan Police Service Norfolk Constabulary Suffolk Constabulary North Wales Police Northamptonshire Police Northumbria Police Staffordshire South Wales Police Surrey Police Sussex Police Thames Valley Police Warwickshire Police West Mercia Police West Midlands Police West Yorkshire Police   About the College of Policing:   The College of Policing is the professional body for policing. It sets high professional standards to help forces cut crime and protect the public. The College is here to give everyone in policing the tools, skills and knowledge they need to succeed. The College of Policing will enhance the ability of police forces and individuals to deliver their mission of preventing crime and protecting the public.   The College of Policing will:   • Set standards • Promote evidence-based good practice • Accredit training providers • Support partnership working • Lead on ethics and integrity View the full article
  12. Local Interview Stage Advice / Tips?

    Hi all, Am currently about to undertake the local force interview stage of the regular police recruitment process. As this is after initial psychometric testing but before the National Assessment Centre - can anyone advise if this type of interview might be more geared towards local force knowledge than the 6 core policing competencies style answers? In my mind's eye, I think this could be a 'lets see whether you fit our force' type of interview - before they actually spend money on potentially putting me through the National Assessment Centre...but am not really sure what more I can do to ensure success at this stage? Any last minute tips / advice would be greatly appreciated!

  14. I have no payslips, help!

    Hi everyone, For my day 2 I've been asked to bring 2 payslips or a letter from HMRC, showing my NI number. The problem being I dont get any payslips! Ive been harrassing work to sort it out but they haven't, I've sort of given up hounding them because I can't be self employed anyway and it'll be them left with a bill when it catches up. I've rung HMRC and asked them to send me a letter confirming my NI number, will this be enough? I'm really worried I'm not going to get in because my boss is too lazy to sort my pay properly!
  15. Hi all, Does anybody know: I have passed everything for the Kent application except vetting. whilst I wait for the result I would like to defer to the Met where I am a special. Do I have to cancel my application with Kent BEFORE I put in an application with the Met or do I just fill in the application form on the Met police website and state I've passed the SEARCH and wait to hear back from them? Obviously if I cancel my Kent police application then don't make it through the paper sift with the Met I'd be gutted!! Cheers all, Bongo Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  17. Just wondering if anyone can help. The MSC applications for PC to Inspector have opened up. Has anyone applied for this yet? If so, do you have to get a line manager's approval to apply? Cheers in advance!

  19. MDP vetting

    Hello I realise this is a quiet area so not likely to get much in the way of a reply but is anyone being vetted currently for the mod police?
  20. "West Mercia Police need more recruits urgently, says crime commissioner West Mercia Police has been urged by its crime commissioner to take urgent steps to speed up the recruitment process. Cuts in the human resources department have made it more difficult for new officers to be vetted to join the force, according to Bill Longmore. The lack of recruitment has also led to an underspend within the force’s budget, as money had been purposely held back for more front line staff, he said. Mr Longmore said cutbacks within the force, which is trying to save £30 million between April 2015 and 2018, had affected some parts of the service worse than others and there had also been a high and unexpected number of retirements. He also said he was frustrated with how long it was taking to recruit new faces at a time in which the force was facing huge change with its operational alignment with Warwickshire Police. The two forces announced in May that 140 new officers would be taken on, but Mr Longmore said progress had been slow. It is believed around 100 of the vacancies are still to be filled. “We have been going through a lot of changes over the last two years,” he said. “With West Mercia and Warwickshire being put together we have made cuts and the HR department is one area that has suffered. “One of the areas I focused on was keeping 50 community support officers and special constables. We’ve also lost a bigger number of people leaving the force through retirement than expected. “We have identified there is a shortage but the speed of the recruitment process has not been fast enough. It’s been very frustrating, especially the vetting policies that go on today, which takes time. But this has now become a matter of urgency.” Despite the underspend Mr Longmore said he did not believe money in place for new officers would betaken away by the Government at a later date. He said: “We are also addressing our underspend and it’s not money we’ve simply been sitting on. We will be looking at ways to spend this money, as well as continuing to save money, which is a sensible way of going forward.” Mr Longmore said the two forces were “a long way down the road” towards becoming a joint force but that the final decision was one for the politicians. He said: “It is whatever they decide, but all I want is whatever is best for the two areas. We’re always looking at the best way forward for the police service.” West Mercia and Warwickshire Police announced early this month staff numbers could be cut in an attempt to save an extra £30 million. The force, which has almost finished an existing three-year plan to cut spending by the same amount, which started in 2012, began a consultation on how save the additional money between 2015 and 2018. West Mercia Police is also in the process of closing 33 police stations and buildings to save £1.5 million. Chief Constable David Shaw said fundamental changes had been made to the way West Mercia police was run over the last few years. He said: “Perhaps we haven’t put enough thought into bringing new people in. “It’s got nothing to do with people not working hard enough but we just want to make sure not a single pound of taxpayers’ money is wasted.” He added: “We will be bringing new people into the force but we also want to use the resources we have better. “I am incredibly proud of our force despite the £30 million cuts. “We may have cut back a little bit far in some areas but the next phase of change will be planning where to spend the money, where to reinvest and where to bring people in. It’s our next major project and if we need use different agencies to bring new people in that’s what we will do. “We are as HR-reliant as any company because every organisation needs such people to make it work. We need IT experts and all the other aspects to help us.” Warwickshire Chief Constable Andy Parker said recruitment was now “back on track”. West Mercia Police announced this month it was opening a fresh round of recruitment to find the next generation of officers through the police cadets." http://www.shropshirestar.com/news/2014/11/28/west-mercia-police-need-more-recruits-urgently/ Thought this was interesting
  21. Hi all, I have just had an email confirming that my final interview for PC with West Mercia in a couple of weeks, does anyone on here have experience of the WMP final interview? what to expect or any tips on what they are expecting? Looking to do as much research as possible before this so any help is appreciated!! I am currently a PCSO with another force so have got a bit of job experience and competancy examples to put forward at the interview. Does anyone else have an interview coming up??
  22. Informal Interview

    You are required to attend a short informal 10 minute interview. The purpose of the interview is to assess your ability to engage, communicate and listen. Any helpful tips for such an interview? I'm hazarding a guess competencies won't be involved just yet.
  23. Met Day 1

    Ok so I totally screwed the maths exam. Will be lucky to get even 1% on that. Can someone clean this up for me, if you completely fail the maths, can you still pass or am I looking at another 6 month wait?
  24. Does anyone know if you go through Police Officer Graduate Entry Programme, after you get as a special? can one fast track the selection? Thanks Tru
