    Getting There
  1. Hi, Are we allowed to wear the ceremonial uniform to civilian funerals ? For example. If your mother had passed away, but never got seen you in uniform, could you wear it ? Obviously, i would take if off before having a few drinks after the ceremoney. Would it be better off asking someone from the force ? Thanks.
  2. Graduate Recruitment in the Police?

    Your main goal should be getting into the police before you even start thinking of what your going to specialise in. Didn't you think of finding out more about the police before you started your university course ? At the moment, your best chance of joining is to apply to your local special constabulary. As you may have read in other posts, this may be the only way into the police. Good luck. Just read this and i hope i don' come across as being harsh =)
  3. RECRUITMENT

    Well, in a nutshell, no one is going to be recruiting because as of today, no one will have any money, thanks to darth osbourne. Apply to become a special, as they will be the only police around for a few years.
  4. Anyone else attending the PIRT on the 26th of october ?
  5. Hey, Over the pass few months i have been working on my written English. I feel i have made some progress compared to last year, but i know i need to do alot beter. If i do become a Special in the next few months, i don't want to look like a idiot with bad English. I did take some English classes last year, but they was'nt the best. Could anyone recommend any good books on this matter, or some good advice. Thanks in advance.
  6. Night ban on young drivers 'would save 200 lives

    I would go crazy if this happend. Not all teenagers drive like stupid idiots in thier little saxo's. If this came into force, i would be unable to get to work when i work nights, so i would most probably get sacked. And, i could not go to TA as i finnish quite late. Imagine me saying to my sergeant when im a special that i cannot work night shifts because im a teenager and we are banned from driving. I do admit that something has to be done, but i think us mature, responceable drivers take the hard end of the stick with high insurance and being classed as boy/girl racers. Also, what about people who pass thier test in thier mid 20's or 30's ? Would it apply to them ?
  7. Have you applied to Gwent yet? I know the deadline day was last friday, the 17th.
  8. The Wait is Over!!

    Well done to everyone who has been given a start date. I would like to give you all some help with you'r boots. I work in Yeomans Outdoors in the festival park, Ebbw Vale. We are one of the few shops around that sell Magnum boots. We sell, Classics, Panthers, stealth 8.0 and stealth 8.0 leather. I can also offer you 10% off the price of the boot. If we don't have your size in stock, i will do my best to odeer you'r size asap. If you want any more infro please feel free to pm me. Thanks, and good luck.
  9. Hey Had a interesting incident happen in work today. I was wondering if it would be a good example to use in my PCSO application for Respect for Race and Diversity competency question. I wont go too much into deatail, but heres what happend in a nutshell. I was working in the female part of the shop. A transexual approached me and asked if he/she could try on a sports bra, he/she wanted to go into the female changing area. There were women and small children present in the changing areas. Not to cause offence, i asked if he/she would be happy to wait while the other customers leave the changing areas, and then he/she can go in. I then stopped other customers going into the changing rooms while he/she got changed. This is what happend in a nutshell, obviously more happend, but i do not want to break the rules. R4R+D is a very difficult subject. Could you give me some advice if you think this would meet the criteria. Thanks
  10. No, as people have said you'r education does not play a part. you'r results in the PIRT, interview, role play etc will be taken into account. So you could have no degree and get 65% and people with degress could get 60%, you have more chance getting a place if you score well in these. Bottom line is, keep a high level of English and Maths ( unlike me ) and try you'r best to score well on the police recruitment side of things. Degree or no degree, if you pass you got as good as chance of anyone.
  11. My first bit of advice is to join your local special constabulary. A force has just introduced sending application forms out to specials, PCSO's and police staff, they will send them out to civilians if thier is any left. This maybe the only way to get into the police in the future. The army has a really long waiting list and recruitment will take a long time. Only join the Army if you'r 100% certain that you want to do it. Maybe think of joining the TA. I have gone down the same route as you. I have gone for experiance over education, as i also hate learning in a school enviroment. I think my time working in a shop, with the public, has learnt me more than any degree would have. Yes, a degree looks good and people do work hard for them, but think of all the negatives that also goes with it. My advice would be.. Apply to become a Special. Maybe join the Territorial army instead of the regular. Stay at you'r current job if you enjoy it. Start training for the application forms and assesment centers now. Good luck!!! Sean
  12. Work experience Help...

    I'm sure he will have plenty of time to spare and help you out. All the time you have wasted by posting on here and waiting for email replys you could have gone to you'r local station and asked, and would have gotten more or less a yes or no answer. If you want to join the police in the future you have to do these kinds of task your self. I do not mean to come across as being harsh, but if you want answers, GO AND GET THEM.

  14. Hey, I'm having a bit of trouble answering one of the sub questions on one of the competancy questions. I know you can't give me a specific answer, but if you could just give me some general advice, tips, etc that would be great. The question is part of the Race and Diversity competancy. How were you able to adapt what you did to suit the other person ? Please don't give me the usual " if you can't answer this you shouldn't be applying " Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.
