WMP Police Staff Vetting

Hi All,

Having applied for a police staff role last year I finally got an interview this July, was successful and was offered a position the same day pending background checks. 

Its to work as a Dispatch officer for West Midlands Police Force Contact Team.

Having sent all of my application forms / medical reports etc the same week I was hoping for a start date sometime this year.

I had my medical the end of August, all that was checked was my hearing and they took samples of my hair for drug testing.

I am now waiting for communication from the recruitment department to tell me all checks have come back and to request to contact my current employer for a reference. Every couple of weeks i'm calling to get an update but it appears to be the same response every time, "back ground checks still on-going".

After todays telephone call of checking for an update I was told that the next start date for training is November but positions are filling up quickly, after this it'll be January.  I think I've been waiting for some time now and am getting frustrated with not knowing a start date, so close to Christmas, I would love to know where I stand so I can plan things.

Is anybody else in the same situation or recently has been?

Many thanks
