    Good stuff! Glad it's not up to 12 months like Glasgow, Lanarkshire etc! Yep, very lengthy. I did fitness just over a week ago and I've got my initial interview Mid-January so not too long a wait. Hoping that if I pass the interview and assessment centre I could be in for June or September!

  8. Police Scotland Recruitment

    Hello! I’ve chosen Edinburgh and the borders. We were told that we would most likely be in for the March intake if they are no delays. My medical is mid January so 🤞. Such a lengthy process, I was hoping December but my initial interview date was 10weeks after my fitness. Just the last bit to get through now. Are you waiting for your medical?

    Hi Harry, What are your posting preferences? I'm going through West but have chosen Edinburgh and Forth Valley as options. Just wondering how long the wait is currently from medical to start date at Tulliallan. Cheers Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Hi guys I was just wondering for answering questions using the STAR method how long were your answers? I've written a few examples so far but they seem quite long they're all nearly about two pages on word. I was just wondering if it's meant to be a paragraph for each letter or more. Thanks! :)
  11. 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 or post am I able to apply to this force again, I am stunned!. I have sought local assistance via my local MP, which at first looked promising etc, with the avenue of data protection, right of appeal, subject to access form etc.............. Sadly this concluded my MP informed me with the Chief Constable himself explaining via telephone, that the decision was final, that I am not of suitability in the role of constable and there was no right of appeal? Is there anyone out there, that can look at this ethically and explain to me where I go now. I am confused, as I currently work as a volunteer in an organisation that works from the same office as police. So I can pass a CRB but not vetting? Confused.......................? Appreciate any advice

  13. Brexit: Theresa May says she 'will not be derailed' 17 December 2017 Related TopicsBrexit Image copyright Reuters The prime minister has said the government is "proving the doubters wrong" with its Brexit negotiations. On Friday, EU leaders agreed talks on the implementation period and future trade could begin the new year. Writing in two Sunday papers, Theresa May vowed she would "not be derailed" from securing an "ambitious" deal. Meanwhile, Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson has warned the UK cannot mirror EU law in the long term or it would risk becoming a "vassal state". 'Special partnership' Cabinet ministers are due to discuss their stance on the relationship they want with the EU - the UK's "end state" - in the coming days, but some ministers are thought to favour a closer alignment than that suggested by Mr Johnson. However, writing in the Sunday Telegraph and Sunday Express Mrs May said: "Amid all the noise, we are getting on with the job." She said the last 10 days had "marked a watershed" in the Brexit process and that the government would now "begin to build that new, deep and special partnership" with the EU. "This is the exciting part of the negotiations and there is no limit on our ambition and creativity," she added. BBC political correspondent Chris Mason said Mrs May had struck a defiant tone in her newspaper columns but that her challenge in 2018 would be to keep her party, and the country, on side as the negotiations continued. Image copyright EPA Brexiteer Mr Johnson's comments in a Sunday Times interview echoed those of his fellow Conservative MP Jacob Rees Mogg, who said on Friday the arrangements the EU had proposed for the transition period would make the UK "a vassal" - or subordinate - state of the EU. The EU's guidelines for phase two of the negotiations say the UK would "continue to participate in the customs union and the single market during the transition" and remain under the jurisdiction of the European Court of Justice. UK must not be EU 'colony' after Brexit Move to head off another Tory rebellion Reality Check: Guidelines for the next stage of talks Mr Johnson said if the UK ended up being forced to mirror EU laws "we would have gone from being a member state to a vassal state". He said Mrs May had done "a fantastic job moving us forward in the negotiations" before setting out what he believed the government should seek to get in its future trade deal with the EU. The UK needs "something new and ambitious, which allows zero tariffs and frictionless trade" but maintains the freedom to "decide our own regulatory framework and own laws", he said. Death threats Meanwhile, two Tory peers have warned Mrs May she could face defeats in the House of Lords if the government tried to "bully" its members. The prime minister suffered her first Commons Brexit defeat earlier this week when MPs -including 11 from her own party - voted to give Parliament a legal guarantee of a vote on the final Brexit deal struck with Brussels. Following the vote there were calls for the Tory rebels to be deselected by the party and some received death threats. Tory peers, Baroness Altmann and Baroness Wheatcroft, have written in the Observer that such threats "are worrying symptoms of the toxic atmosphere which has been created in our country". "Mindful of the monumental importance for future generations of getting Brexit right, the Lords is unlikely to be receptive to bullying over a restricted timetable or vigorous whipping to toe the party line," they added.

  17. Colour vision referral

    Yeah I had to go for a deferral, the colour vision clinic in Glasgow is only open twice per week so getting an appointment can take a while. I requested one in mid September and was given one at the start of November (roughly 6 weeks then).

  20. Bleep Test

    You'll be fine. Anyone who regularly does any sort of physical exercise should be fine. Even then if you're struggling, all you have to do is hang on in there till you reach 5.4. It's as much mental as it is physical.
  21. Bleep Test

    Well done!. Just back from having a practice in a hall, so much easier than outside. Still worried but I'm sure the adrenaline will take over on the day.

  28. If a person commits a minor common assault on a child with no injuries what is the appropriate disposal. The allegation is that the person has pushed child away from him and knocked him to the floor after the child struck him to the eye. No emotional or physical affects to child. To add no previous convictions for the person. Only evidence is cctv, no witnesses and no support or evidence from minor. Would this meet the criteria for a simple caution or would it be more appropriate to charge. Any assistance would be appreciated.
