    Rewrite your script so your first comment to Claire is, 'Hi Claire. I'm glad you're in, was concerned that Fido was distressed. He seemed to be tangled up in his lead. But you're here now. Bye.' Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Reasonable man is spot on, why would you go to someone's door while filming it and swearing straight away?? It's an incident that could have been dealt with a lot better.

    Not committing crime is probably a good starting point.

    I personally found the book to be awful but I know people how have used to pass both AC and final interview. Blue light Consultancy is great and Brendan knows what he is talking about and a money back guarantee if don't get 50%. Whatever you do, do not go in and be yourself or you will fail miserably. Prep is key for the AC and you will pass with flying colours. Its just a game at the end of the day.

    You've got nothing to worry about. Even if you did get caught speeding and convicted then you still wouldn't necessarily be declined. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Scary- The info harry is on about is what I was referring to....not your info. You/your info states that you require a pass, what me and harry are referring to does not require you to have a pass for the written part. Just on regarding to Merseyside, they will be recruiting in September, but I'm going away then. Thanks anyway.

    Martyj - It is not old info, the screen shot that harryvonhoofing provides is exactly the same info thats on the link I provided. Maybe provide a link to this new legislation you are on about? I think Harryvonhoofing is right about this though, you are better off applying/starting again. If you are looking at the midlands area then West Mids assess on the written element along with Staffordshire. Don't think Mercia/Warwickshire are recruiting this year. Good luck what ever you decide to do!

    I'd have to wonder about who wrote the law on this, surely if it is used to make fluffy cream stuff it is being consumed? However, as others have said, it may depend on the context in which you're selling it. If you sell catering supplies then you're probably all right. But it would also help to have some written procedures that all staff are trained in to ensure that it is sold for catering use. You may decide to only sell to over 18s, I'd also suggest a limit to the number of canisters you sell to one person. If you have someone who is not in the catering business but wants to buy more than one box, it is likely that they're not making 100 cream teas for a garden party with friends.

    In this case, the family aren't just family of an offender though, the girls may also be potential victims. If the man had been found with videos of underage teenage girls being abused, would the police have a duty to take some sort of action to protect the girls such as only releasing him if he lived at another address, or reporting the issue to social services? I think possibly GreyDog is looking for some sort of reassurance that if the girls might be at risk, something would have been done about it.

    I have just read this on the National College of Policing website.This reads that no force can accept a candidate who has not reached the national minimum requirement in any section. The link is http://www.college.police.uk/What-we-do/Support/Recruitment/Documents/2011_pass_mark_FINAL.pdf#search=SEARCH PASS MARK After consideration from the Police Advisory Board and approval from Home Office Ministers the national minimum pass mark for Police SEARCH® from 1 November 2007 has been set at: 50% of available marks across the assessment centre plus 50% of available marks in the competency area Respect for Race and Diversity plus 50% of available marks in the competency area Oral Communication plus 44% of available marks in the competency area Written Communication. It then goes onto to say: A force may set a score, above the minimum, at a level which past experience suggests would be achieved by the number of candidates for which vacancies exist. Any such score should be reviewed regularly to ensure that it continues to produce the number of candidates that matches the number of vacancies; with the score being adjusted up or down as necessary. Such a variable "cut score" could be justified as long as it has the effect of allocating places, as nearly as possible, to the highest scoring candidates. However, a permanently fixed local pass mark should not be set, as this could not be related to a justifiable criterion for prioritising amongst candidates who have achieved the national minimum pass mark. Forces should never appoint a candidate who has not met the national minimum pass mark.

    Nothing to disappoint me - just letting you know the information I've been provided. I could well be wrong but from my notes that's the impression I've been given.

    Sorry to hear that mate. I thought WYP didn't take into account BMI so that has come as a surprise to me. I personally would appeal as you have nothing too lose.

    Hello all, I have finally decided to post here after a couple of months of lurking. The forums here are great and have helped me through the recruitment proces to the point that I am now to start College in Tulliallan at the end of the month for Police Scotland. Hopefully now i can be an active member of the forum and help potential recruits the way that others helped me.

    I passed first time for Lancashire and had no policing background. I felt being honest, not over thinking the question and using examples across the board of 'my life' worked. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    For the duration of the assessment day, you are given the role of a Customer Service Officer at a fictional leisure complex. It is against this background that you perform the tests, and you are assessed on that basis. Throughout you will be assessed on your professional and ethical standards, your communication and decision making skills, all of which are essential for a police officer. Top 10 Tips for Your Assessment Day! Remember you are being assessed at all times, even in "down time" so be mindful of what you say and how you react. Take time to read everything through carefully, so that you don't misinterpret anything. In your interview, the 10 or 20 seconds you use to think up a scenario to answer the question with seems like forever, but don't rush it. Think carefully about what example you are going to use. In everything you do remain diverse. Don't take sides with anyone and look at the situation from the perspective of everyone involved. If you have time in the PIRT and written exercises, take the chance to read through your answers, check and double check. On the maths and verbal reasoning - if you can't answer a question still give an answer. It's multiple choice so a 1 in 4 chance of getting it right is better than nothing. Again on the multiple choice papers, if you miss a question out to come back to then make a note of it. I've heard horror stories of people missing a question (e.g. 7) and then filling in the answers for the subsequent questions in the wrong boxes (e.g. question 8 in 7, 9 in 8 etc) and not realising until it is too late. Make sure you read through the information pack that you are sent, but don't panic about not remembering everything. You just need an understanding of it. If you are unsure of what you are being asked to do, then ask. Chances are other people have the same questions. Try not to panic or think negatively. It is going to be 5 hours of hell, I'm not going to lie to you, but if you keep a level head and give it your best shot you will be fine.

    For me, this one incident screams load and clear that our liberal wishy washy approach to offenders is a complete and utter failure. How on earth someone serving 13 (THIRTEEN) life sentences be eligible for day release from an open prison, without even taking his offending upon release into account. And the news readers constantly saying "don't approach him, ring 999 immediately" makes the decision to allow him out on day release even more incredulous. If he's a danger to the public now, why the f*&k was he allowed out?
