  1. National Police Force

    Straight to the point i guess :-)
  2. National Police Force

    The OP for this topic will have the ideal opportunity to see this idea first hand when the 8 Scottish forces merge to form the Police Service Of Scotland (catchy no ?). Like some posters here there are concerns that like the Met would in England , Strathclyde as the biggest force in Scotland will have the biggest say over procurement, computer systems, best practice etc. I personally am all for anything that reduces the amount of red tape and paperwork we do but in all honesty it would appear just to be a money saving exercise. I await April 1st with a feeling of both interest and trepidation.
  3. I can see no reason why you would need to disclose this. You were a passenger in a car during a routine traffic stop. If it puts your mind at rest give recruitment a call, but i wouldnt worry.
  4. Name?

    From your new chief constable its the Police Service Of Scotland.
  5. Tulliallan 12th November 2012

    Typically your day finishes about 5pm, your time is your own after that .
  6. Given that you are not talking about the Police im sure youll not get a definite answer as it may depend on who requests the check. There is no requirement from the Police to notify a subject
  7. Roles within Lothian and Borders

    Hi There are myriad roles for Constables these days. Speaking for F division but generally the same for all dividions response officers are your "beat cops" who answer calls etc. Typically once out of your probation other roles open up like SNT and Community, Reactive Crime Unit or if you apply, Roads Policing, CID, Crime Reduction Unit, Major Investigation Team etc etc. The list is virtually endless. Response is where youll start typically although I started with the SNT. Any questions feel free to ask :-)
  8. S.54 - Bending The Rules

    To answer your question to the best of my knowledge the answer would be no. Civic Govt Scotland act allows us to give the warning to desisit or end up with the summary fine. The power to seize any noise making equipment comes from section 24 of the Crime and Disorder (Scotland) Act. This is also the one that lets us force entry to properties to seize stereos etc etc.
  9. Opinions

    No requirement to check o/s mirror if turning left. Van drivers fault
  10. I took two pairs of boots myself and had no issues. Not too sure if the rules have changed
  11. Article in the Independent- "febs"

    I work with a number of English officers and have never seen this at all
  12. Credit Checks/Vetting

    If it helps I was in exactly the same situation when I joined and got through with no issues. Best of luck , what force you aiming at ?
  13. As ex forces I recall that you would need 2 references and they would need to be your immediate sup or divisional officer rather than just a generic HM forces. Unsure re SDSR but you need to have handed in notice before you can apply. Finally yes the Police will still carry out vetting checks despite the forces having already carried out checks due to anything that may have come up since you applied. Hope this is of help. If you have anything you want to ask drop me a PM.
  14. Good luck next time round, youll smash it. Im a horrible runner but found fear a great motivator
  15. Surely with the definition of assault "every attack directed to take effect physically on the person of another........" he will be fine. He didnt attack the guy he was just sitting in the wrong place. Someone has waaaaay too much time on their hands.
