  1. I did vetting before I joined and failed because of payday loans a few years ago. I appealed and they overturned it. I'm now in a police staff role, and recently I've been asked to do another financial vetting a couple of months ago. And now I've been asked to do a security clearance vetting. I find this strange as my friend has been in police 9 years and said they only ask you to do vetting again after 10 years? Since I started I've got married, and my husband has only recently told me he has a ccj. I haven't had a payday loan since I started with the police and my finances are good but

    Failed vetting - Appeal in 7 days

    Hello I am unsure from the letter provided by a non Met force whether it is myself that has failed the vetting or a third party, so it is very difficult for me to write the appeal. The letter is from the recommended letter which forces now issue following the new guidance issued in Oct 2017. app.college.police/uk/app-content/professional-standards/vetting/ 'The purpose of vetting is to provide an acceptable level of assurance as to the integrity of individuals who have access to police data etc. Detailed checks are carried out on the applicant, family members, associates and their a

    vetting form

    hi there Anyone knows what the vetting process requires? I mean what they check except criminal records, I am wondering if we are allowed to be on a dating website.
  5. Hello, Could some one please explain the difference between PNC subject access and PND which I believe stands for Police National Database, more of a local check. I have recently applied and received my PNC subject access, and I was then told if you want to find out what information is held about you on you local police force, you will have to apply through them directly. I want to find out what can be held in the system about you that It wouldn’t show on your subject access? Is it like each time you been spoken to by the police they made a record of

    (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

    SC - Appeal Process/Rights On Vetting?

    Hi All, Firstly a huge thank you to all who are currently serving this Country, under any role that is currently within a police force, I truly admire what you represent. My joining this site is very recent, and a last port of call if I am completely honest. I have had to many knockbacks now over the years, but most recent is vetting. I am told as an external applicant that I have no right of appeal, & that section 6 of some type of act 1996 there is no reason to disclose the decision to myself. Added to this, I am informed that under no circumstances, in any capacity o

    A couple of basic questions if i may?

    I'm planning to apply to either Cheshire Constabulary or BTP later this year as a Special Constable. BTP are holding Recruitment Seminar in April that is an evening event aimed at giving potential candidates an opportunity to ask questions etc. Has anybody been to one of these events, either with BTP, Cheshire Constabulary, or another force? I'm trying to find out what people usually wear to this type of event. Whilst I'm sure there will be people there remembering faces etc, i hope that anybody attending is not actually assessed and therefore the evening will not be too formal. You

    Social Media Vetting

    Hi, If you're applying for the police should you have social media accounts? I have heard its best to close them down but unsure if this is true? Thanks

    The Waiting Game

    Hi all Currently in the process of joining Cleveland Police as a new entry PC. I passed the force medical on Monday and sent references/vetting forms off back in February so as far as I know just waiting now! Been told there are various intakes throughout the year but nothing concrete yet. Anybody else in the same situation? And anyone else been through the whole process recently know how long it takes to hear back that everything is done and to be offered a start date? Many Thanks in advance

    Vetting

    Hello guys, I would like to ask if, in the vetting process, the police checks someone's details in another country. For example, I am greek. Would the police contact the greek police authorities to verify my details? Many thanks in advance, Spiros

  14. Hey, I was hoping someone could share some light. I have done my day 2 8 weeks ago and I have heard nothing. My current specials force have told me the met have contacted them, so I'm guessing I'm going through vetting. How long does this take and what are peoples experiences in this stage? Thank you
  15. Hello, first-time post... I am a serving member of the met (PCSO) which I joined with a view to becoming a PC. Passed all of my assessments; now I have received an email saying I failed my vetting. I know why it is (although third party info can't be given by vetting)... My dad got arrested in the year between my PCSO vet and now. I was so disgusted I moved house ASAP, but there has not been a resolution to the case yet (no bail, no charge, no conviction or NFA) I severed contact with my father from this time; only seeing him at Christmas (and that was to read some of his documents for my appe
  16. So for any Officer role you are re-vetted every X amount of years. In my Force it is every 5 years. Question is, what happens if you fail? Specifically, for the case where it isn't your fault e.g. family members. Surely it's unfair to be blamed for someone else's actions.

    Online vetting

    Hello. Just a quick question about the online vetting to see where everyone else is. I had my medical on the 20th of July and still haven't received the online vetting form. Anyone else in the same situation. Thanks
  18. Just thought I would open a general topic area for those of us out there who have completed all elements of MET new constable assessment and are just waiting for info with regards vetting completion and intake/ internal CKP dates..... Sharing any updates and timelines might make the wait a little easier?

    Stage 2 vetting query

    I am in the process of filling out my stage 2 vetting form and it asks me about any time abroad or travelling. It says I cannot be out of the country for longer than 12 months, which is fine. In February 2014 I completed my training to become a health care worker on a zero hour bank contract. I went away to work a summer season in Ibiza for 3.5 months after finishing my training from May-middle of September. Although I was working away, I was still employed by the NHS as it was a zero hour contract. This being said, on my initial application form I didn't put a gap in my employment because I
  20. Well, seeing as I'm now a mini mod here I suppose I had best do something sensible! Here is a timeline for my recruitment process to give some idea of how long (or short!) things take. I can't guarantee it will be the same for all applicants, but it will hopefully give some idea 16th August posted application form 20th August notified I passed initial paper sift, assessment centre date sent 12th September PIR test 16th September notified I passed PIRT 17th September interview date sent 26th September physical date sent (pending successful interview) 30th Septem

    Vetting Question.

    Asking onbehalf of a friend. Was accepted in the last process but has however failed vetting thinks it's due to a family member who is known to police. Has appealed but that has been rejected and it's the final decision. Can my friend pursue this via a freedom of information request or a subject access request? And when they say the decision is final does that mean he will never be accepted? Many thanks in advance.

    Vetting

    Hi all, just a quick question with regards to vetting, how many sets of vetting forms do you actually have to fill in? The reason I ask is because I have filled in some before assessment centre, but many have filled in some to take to interview. My vetting questionnaire didn't go in depth into loans or credit cards etc.. Just asked if I had ccj's and things of that nature. Is there a chance I will have to fill out another one or does that sound the same as everyone else's? And also is there a chance they started vetting off when I passed the AC since they asked for them that early? Thanks

    Question about vetting & Credit History

    Hi All, I'm planning to apply to join as a special soon (Met). But I a bit worried about the financial side of vetting. I tried checking my credit history on Noddle, and it seems that it can't find anything. My colleague said that it could be because I'm not on the electoral roll. I'm not a British citizen, I'm here on a indefinite leave to remain, therefore, I can't join the electoral roll. I don't have a criminal record. Neither most of my family, except for a cousin (which I do not have any contact) that was arrested but not charged. I live with my mother and step-dad

    Family members

    I'm planning to apply as a special when Hampshire open up, but I have just had a thought about vetting. I live with my mum and my step dad, and it's been that way for about 13 years. I haven't seen my biological dad for about 11-12 years, I have had no contact with him my self, and the only thing we have had to do with him in that time was that he was paying child maintenance, but any contact was through csa. I assume he has never had any trouble with the police, however if he has would this affect my application, or as I have nothing to do with him will it be okay? Thanks ?
