  2. Hi, I have read couple of article saying Special constable and new police officers could be issues with tasers i have read few articles not sure if its true or not. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7439455/Special-constables-Tasers-time.html _____________________________________________________________________________________________ https://asco.police.uk/our-work/taser/ _________________________________________________________________________________________________--
  3. Hi, I have applied for special Constable with West Midlands, I have the Video interview which I think I messed up but I am waiting for results for the interview which I hope I pass... always had dream of becoming a regular police officer then eventually going into firearms... but that’s far yet.

    Sussex Police Collar Numbers

    I came across a few Sussex police officers the other day - not in a position to chat with them - and they all had different letters on their collar numbers on them. I know that some forces issue them for Boroughs (e.g. the Met) or certain specialisms, but having a look around the internet, it appears that Sussex's are much more random. I noticed this also in the recent BBC programme Cuffs, but just assumed it was a made up thing for TV. Can someone explain them?

    Personal Safety Training

    Looking at the number concerns raised around the quality/quantity of PST I start to wonder what is actually being delivered by different forces. Within the cathedral constabularies we receive two full days annually of PST, which generally covers unarmed techniques, rigid handcuffs and tactical baton training. Although these are repeated on every occasion they occasionally include cell/vehicle extraction (not that we have any), leg restraints etc. We do not have PAVA so don't cover this. We also have a written knowledge check test which must be passed along with competency assessment. We receiv
  6. Hi folks I am on my first few hours tomorrow evening as a special constable. Full of nerves and excitment. ANY first tips would be welcomed please asap. Thankyou
  7. When I started the specials recruitment process I tried to look up a rough timescale/guide, but could not find one anywhere. This is obviously due to individual force's, the individuals that are applying and their personal circumstances. Below is my timeline for South Yorkshire Police and a bit of detail (not to much as something's need to be a surprise), it seems to have gone smoothly so hopefully this is an average timeline. Application form completed – Mid/End of May write it out in rough several times if needed, this is the first major hurdle that many fall at so take you time wi

    West Midlands Special Recruitment 208

    Hi all! Hoping someone may be able to advise! I have been looking for details of the stages involved in Specials Selection at West Midlands in 2018. So far I have completed: • Online application • Specials Online assessment (Video interview & online values based assessment Have also been offered a combined appointment for fitness testing, biometric testing and photo in the new year. I would really appreciate any advice as to where I currently am in the process (what’s left!)? Are there further assessments or is this now at pre-offer checks? Any advice wo
  10. Apparently there was a National Conference about Citizens in Policing, and someone has basically been live-tweeting it under #CiPconf2018. Which, if anyone else is a fan of the Police Academy movies, reminds me of #4, Citizens On Patrol (or, 'COP'). The new National Special Constabulary Strategy for the next few years was presented, and there's a copy online if anyone's interested in it. https://www.north-wales.police.uk/media/655467/national-special-constabulary-strategy-en.pdf AND, a random fact I found out along the way - the City of London Police are the
  11. Being of limited experience, I thought it would be good to get opinions on the question above, that I've been thinking about recently. How are Specials used in your force? And how do you think better use could be got out of Specials?

    (Another) Vetting query

    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

    Special Constable Assessment

    Hello, before applying to The Met as a Special, I would like to gather all possible information about the assessment process. There is a lot of different information out there, which are raising more questions than answers. As mentioned my force of choice is The Met as I’m aware the assessment process is not standardised across the UK. I have tried to contact The Met a few times directly, but got no answer. I have bought books, but they seem to be for ‘normal’ PCs. I wonder if the tests are identical or does it differ for Specials. I would like to prepare myself as good as possible, there

    Failed Specials Recruitment

    Alright, so this is for a friend of mine. They had signed up to volunteer for Specials, ended up passing everything except for the last test, I think it was the part where they scour every bit of the internet. The reason they had given for failing my friend was that he/she didn't use correct language on social media. What's bizarre is that they're not one to use brash language or crude humour. And even more so they had met my friend, interviewed, and had them take tests. Everything was spot on except social media. Can they really use that as a means to fail someone? What's a good plan to

    Force switching

    Afternoon all, A question about the possibility of switching forces. I'm in sixth form college and doing A levels atm but I'd like to join the specials force at the end of March after turning 18 but my question is, I'm planning on going to uni, so how easy is it to switch forces after about 5/6 months (bear in mind much of it will be training and processing the application, that's if I even get in) to whichever force is in the area that my uni is (probably either Manchester or possibly Oxford/somewhere in Scotland). Or is there a way to train in the area I'm at at the moment and then star

    Advanced Driving

    Hi Everyone, I am a police officer coming through the specials process at the moment (I have been accepted and start training in November) 1) I currently only hold a Full Manual Licence. Am I going to be more attractive to the police regulars if i undertake special driving courses or broaden the vehicles i'm able to drive for example maybe getting my Motorbike licence or undertaking a ROSPA advance driving course? 2) As someone with medical knowledge I could carry extra items and responded to medical emergencies as well. Would this knowledge put me 'ahead in the queue when it
  17. Following on from this topic, I have collated all the data and put it into a graph as show below. I appreciate some of the data may not be accurate because of changes in policy. If you find that something is inaccurate please leave a comment below, private message me or fill out the survey in the topic linked above and I will update the table when I can. I would ask that you only feed me information that you know to be true to keep it as accurate as possible. If you do this then please leave a reply in the comments box saying how you know this to be true. You will notice that ther

    Dorchester Event

    Hello, Is there anyone on here who specials in or near Dorchester? I'm helping organise something down that way later this month and could use the help of some local officers. Please drop me a PM if you're an SC or PC in the area. Thanks

    Kent Police Issued Uniform

    As someone has already done in another forum, I suppose I should do some grown up stuff. Can someone post the issued kit and uniform lists for Regs and Specials for KPS?
  20. Hello all. Apologies if a similar discussion is already somewhere on this forum, I've a lot of digging to do! I'm currently as serving SC, but had been requested to have another hearing test done, since I've taken on new hearing aids. Prior to joining the job, I was tested the standard way and an extended field test was done also. I passed the extended field test with no concerns. I would like to hear from anyone in the job, Regulars or Specials, that have any hearing disability please. I'm more than happy to private message. I'd just like to ascertain your experiences, etc pl
  21. Hi all, So I'm through the paper sift and have my assessment on the 27th March and have a quick q for anyone who might have been through the MET Special Assessment recently. In the documentation I've been sent it says there is a written test and interview. Can anyone tell me if the written part entails a numeracy test? Numeracy has always been a weak point of mine and if it is included I'd like to try my best to remember all of that wonderful maths I hated at school 12 years ago... Thanks, sim

    Competency based question queries

    With the application form, structured interview and final interview, there are at least two parts of the SC recruitment process that involve competency based questions. Does anyone have any experience of if it's possible a question or two say from the application form, will be repeated in either of the interviews? If so, would you be expected to provide a different answer to the one used on your application? And also, would you say it was acceptable to use an answer on your form to answer a different question in interview (assuming of course that answer was also relevant to the interview qu
  23. I was having a browse over the law in relation to incapacitant sprays (PAVA/CS etc) and am a bit confused with the legistlation: So if specials are not members of the police force in E&W and they aren't employees either are they technically breaking the law or have I missed something here?

    Situational Judgement Test

    Could anyone point me in the right direction, as to where I might find examples of the tests I will face at the special constables assessment centre? I have not taken one of these tests before and I really don't know what to expect.
