  1. Telephone interviews

    Hi everyone, and thanks to all posters. Some great info on here! Have been reading and researching to try and prepare in case I'm selected, but I can't seem to find any details on what to expect from a telephone interview. There's lots about final interviews and assessment centre but very little about telephone. Will I be given notice and material to read to give me an idea before? Will it take a f format more similar to a final or assessment interview? Also, has anyone here heard back from WMP application yet? Thanks in advance, Luca.
  2. Home Visit

    It's been a while since I've posted on this blog, mainly because nothing's been happening. I attended my medical which went smoothly, but involved waiting for 4 hours with other candidates in the piping hot waiting room of a converted semi detached. Aside from that it's just been chasing up references and trying to extend my son's vocabulary past "dog", "mum", "dad" and "gone" (which is apparently now a noun used to refer to a bin) Late this morning I got a call from my local Neighbourhood Sergeant asking for a home visit. Nearly an hour later and the kettle was on and I was panic shaving the mess that I haven't bothered to touch since my interview at the start of the month. The home visit was the part of the process that really intrigued me, having not made it to this stage before it was a complete unknown although some of the saints on here gave me at least an inkling of what to expect. The first test was a fairly simple one - white tea none. I didn't get any feedback on that but there was no vomiting so I'm taking it as a pass The visit essentially consisted of an ID check, around 20 questions designed to find out my attitudes towards drugs, binge drinking and right wing political groups as well as making sure that there was nothing that I hadn't failed to declare on my vetting forms. The questions were fairly formal, but after they were out the way I had an opportunity to sit and have a cuppa with a serving supervisor who could answer any questions about the job in a formal setting. Just the vetting to wait back on now so hopefully this time next week I'll have a final offer of employment Hopefully...

  4. Police force threatens to sue Theresa May over funding plans One of Britain’s largest police forces is threatening to launch a high court action against the home secretary as analysis reveals that Theresa May is secretly planning a major switch in millions of police funding from city forces to county constabularies, the Guardian can disclose. West Midlands police are considering mounting the legal challenge to the way in which May has conducted a consultation exercise on a new police funding formula being carried out without the Home Office disclosing how each force is likely to be affected.

  5. Police cars with no sirens risk response times, federation says - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-birmingham-34124935 Police cars with no sirens are being used for emergency responses, delaying officers and potentially preventing arrests, the Police Federation says. West Midlands Police has a fleet of 109 Vauxhall Corsa cars intended for neighbourhood policing. The Federation, which represents rank and file officers, said the vehicles had been used for more than 100 urgent calls in the last 12 months. The West Midlands force said the Corsas were "not intended for response work". The Federation's health and safety official Pete Harkness said: "Officers are ordered to drive the Corsa at patrol speed and obey the rules of the road. "But the absence of a siren means they often cannot get traffic to move out of their way and this, in turn, can delay them getting to an emergency situation. "This is very frustrating for the officers and they feel they are letting the public down by not getting to them as quickly as possible in a crisis situation." The union blames cost-cutting for the use of cars without sirens. Superintendent Kerry Blakeman, from the force's operations department, said officers who respond to call-outs in cars without sirens have to follow the Highway Code and cannot break the speed limit to cut through traffic. He said: "Incidents graded as 'immediate' are responded to as soon as possible, usually in a matter of minutes and on many occasions require the use of lights and sirens. "At no point was the Corsa intended for response work as it is a low performance vehicle." It seems to me the force is burying it head in the sand! It really doesn't matter what the vehicle is intended for either. Stop the control room deploying these patrols to immediate response incidents, potentially putting the public at risk and failing to hit response times (and that always gets the bosses attention). Or just pay the money and have the vehicles equipped correctly so they are fit for purpose. I guess this will become more of an issue as budget cuts bite even deeper.

  9. England Man filmed trying to kick police car in Birmingham3 hours ago A man has been filmed kicking a car - which unbeknown to him was an unmarked police vehicle. The man, who was unsteady on his feet, attacked the car while it was parked in Lionel Street, Birmingham, in the early hours of 23 May. West Midlands Police released the CCTV images, and said: "With these kinds of skills we don't think this vandal will be following a career in football anytime soon. "Both the wing mirror and passenger door were damaged during the bizarre offence." http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-birmingham-32995022#sa-ns_mchannel=rss&ns_source=PublicRSS20-sa needs more practice at football!
