Question regarding Specials recruitment

Recommended Posts

jayf147

Hi guys

Not too sure if this is the correct section or whether it has been asked before. 

I have just been accepted as a Detention Officer, my question is am I able to become a Police Special whilst working as a D/O or will it be a conflict of interest. 

 

Cheers

Jay

Hi Jay,

Welcome to the forum!

which force is it that you intend to apply to as a special? And also just confirm that you mean a DO in custody?

That being said in my force we have D.O's who are specials with no issues at all, so it is highly unlikely you will have any issues. But again that is only talking from experience with my force

Not a conflict of interest in my force either, DOs who are Specials are certainly very useful people to know regarding custody training!

Yeah it's detention/custody officer. It's for Merseyside.

I haven't spoken to anybody internally about yet as I start my training tomorrow.

But as Merseyside are recruiting specials now I'd like to get an application in asap.

Thank you for the replies guys

Well I cant say for Merseyside specifically but there is no issue in my force with it.

It may be worth asking around This part of the forum as some Merseyside colleagues may be able to shed more light :)

I don't think you can in Merseyside.

I will ask someone for you though and let you know tomorrow.
