  1. Chances of getting in at 18?

    Sorry I've took so long to reply guys! Thanks Tom that was a great and helpful first post. I'm still unsure but swaying more towards forgetting about Uni for now anywy and joining the Special's. I only really have one more question for now and that is do I have to be 18 to apply or can I apply now at 17? Thanks again guys!! Paul.
  2. Chances of getting in at 18?

    Thanks guys, that's brilliant help, I've took it all on board. Went to the Police station yesterday and it's just made me want to join the Police even more. Any more opinions would be great. Thanks a lot. Paul.
  3. Hi, I am currently 17 years old and studying BTEC National in Public Services (Uniformed) I am predicted DDD (Triple Distincton) which is equvilent to 3 A's at A Level. I am un sure whether to go to Uni or not now. I spoke to a Sargeant this weekend and he said for Cheshire Police force, when your in your probation years you do a foundation degree in Policing, so going to Uni would basically be pointless because your going to get a degree in your probation period. I still think getting a degree would be good because if the Police doesn't work out, it doesn't matter what degree I have, it's always good to have. Still unsure what to take etc Public Services, Policing, Criminology, Law etc. I just wanted people's opinions on me applying at 18 years old (Next February) to be a Special Constable, what are my chances to get in? I know there is at least one 18 year old Special in Cheshire as it says on their website that they are the youngest Special. The Sargenat said now a days the best way to get into the Police is internally, so suggested I join the Specials first. I know they want life experience, I currently work in a pub so sometimes handle customer complaints with food etc, I have also done lots of voluntary work and I'm doing well in college. So what's your view? I appriciate any help at all, thanks in advance from a consfused 17 year old who's only pation is to get into the Police!! Paul.
  4. Requirments to get into Cheshire?

    Cheers guys thats seriously great help for me Can you give rep (Reputation) on this forum? I need to rep you two :) Yeah, after college when I turn 18 I think i'll join the specials to get an insight into what the Police is really about. I've also looked at the foundation degree in Policing too, but didn't know if it was any good, but i'll look into it more. Thanks a lot :)

  7. Hi, I'm 16 and i'm studying Public Services in college hoping to join Chehire Police maybe after Uni, as I want a degree. Firstly what are the main requirements to get in the Cheshire Police force? I know you have to have good eye sight, fitness etc but how many GCSE's and A levels do you need? Anything else? Also what degrees would help to get promoted on a fast track system, or does Cheshire not have that? I know you have to complete exams to get promoted etc... Thanks a lot

  9. Public services course in college?

    Ok, thanks a lot. So whats it all about? More police than the other services, or is it equal, as in the time you study each service? Did you enjoy it? I heard theres a lot of trips, are there? Where? Yeah i'm hoping to do this course, then after the 2 years, teach the piano as my full time job. After a few years, join the specials, then if i like it, apply for the regulars, not sure about Uni. How many years ago did you do this course? Sorry 4 loads of questions. Thanks Paul
  10. Hi i'm currently in my last year at high school and i want to be in the police when i'm older. However i've heard the "public services" course in college will really help me you study the emergency services, team leading, confidence building etc. I just wanted to know if anyone on here has taken this course? Or if you know anymore information about what you do, that would be great! Please help me! Thanks Paul

  14. Genaral police questions

    Haha! right okay, well could anyone who has done the PIRT test recently please tell me what is it like? Is it much harder than GCSE maths and english or not? And sorry for annoying you with so many questions but what is a report writing exercise? I also heard when you are training you get put into a situation where you are monitored on how you handle this argument etc. Is this true? if so how did everyone here deal with it? And okay, i'll remember that now it's specials. Thanks to anyone else in advance who answers my questions and please help!
  15. Genaral police questions

    Dappycow you have no idea how much i appreciate your help today thanks again. And yeah i am very keen to learn as much as i can because being in the police for me is a dream job, being looked up to in society. So a specialist sounds like a good idea to go for at first and it's only 16 hours a month which is good, but the one thing i don't understand about you is that if your a specialist how come your a superintendent? how did you go that high up in the ranks being a specialist? Also thanks for your help about promotion to sargent. Could anyone tell me what the other exams are like then to apply? like is it a maths exam (don't like maths) and english? I don't know what else to ask right now so thanks again. Paul
