I was disappointed. Thought it was going to be about training. But in hindsight the public probably don't care about that so they wouldn't focus on that.

I too hoped the same when I first heard of the shows inception but realised that it mainly covered there 10/15 week tutoring stages.

Have you seen @Eddzz!! Blog that goes through training for the Police Officer role. It's a fascinating insight into what to expect and one I greatly recommend.

I do have to say though that from a force who only has been taking internal candidates I am shocked at just how new those newbies were!

Did the programme say that it was internal candidates only?

I don't think it did. It said there were 36 in their class. It also generally added that joining the police is a lot tougher in the modern day.

No they were a mix for Surrey. I meant my force has only been taking internals which is why I was shocked by how slow the guys in the program were to progress.

Not their fault of course just something I'm not used to seeing now.

I agree, seeing their training periods, Self defence, roleplaying etc would have been really interesting.

If i'm not mistaken a police documentary on BBC iPlayer had one episode dedicated to just that, can't recall what it was though!

Hopefully one of them wasn't the lad sporting bum-fluff at his attestation!

Wait for them to reply, not our position to as could potentially open them to scrutiny etc
