  5. AmIObligedtoAnswerThat


    Hello I have been on the forums (t'other place included) for just over a year now. I am 17 and am aiming to become an SC then hopefully a Police Constable. In September this year I was diagnosed with depression and prescribed antidepressants until January/February. I have asked my GP about it stopping me from joining and he said it wouldn't be an issue if I was not on them when I applied. I do have a question though; Would it prevent me from becoming an AFO or SFO (it isn't the only area of policing I would be interested in). I suspect it would be another hurdle to jump over in terms of interviews etc, that is totally justified and I am not moaning about it.

    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?

  13. Hi everyone, I have my day 1 to become a regular in just over a week, I'm already a special. I just need a bit of advice regarding the interview. It says the interview will be based on the competencies, I'm just really wondering if our examples should be from being a special or just everyday life? And any helpful ways to layout/write my examples up, such as SOAP? Or if anyone has any other advice to help get through the day would be brilliant! Thank you!

    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!

    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
  19. 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!!

    Gross Misconduct - Help

    Can anyone help me out. I am a special and also was a call taker in the FCR working for g4s alongside lincolnshire police. G4S has sacked me over gross misconduct for misusing police computer systems. Long story but I am appealing the decision. I am applying for the regs but I fear with this gross misconduct charge over my head it is pointless as when it comes to the employment check they will bin me off. My question is what will they ask in terms of a reference from my previous employer? Thanks to all those who respond in advance.
  21. http://www.westmercia.police.uk/recruitment/joining-as-a-police-officer.html West Mercia police recruitment have had their doors open for the longest amount of time in a while and they now announced that this recruitment campaign for this year will end. If you haven't got your regulars application in yet, get a move on!

    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?

    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.
  24. 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

    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!
