  2. MOD Police Recruitment

  3. Hi all

    Good to here that the dust is starting to settle. We haven't had the major cuts that the Home office have had but still had to make savings to increase front line resources. Still have a relatively new armed unit ourselves which are still finding their feet in my opinion. So your new role is is guarding role or still response In the sense of arv? If that's op info I understand and apologise for asking,

  7. Am about to transfer to MPS but don't like what I see

    Tbh mate i was the same as you, joined BTP, didn't know what they did, any just wanted to do the two years and transfer to HO. However just coming up to 2 years now and to be honest i have completely changed my mind. I have had such a good experience being in BTP so far. Have managed to get involved in a lot of things, currently work as a Response PC and at the same time lead on School visits within my area. I have also just done an advanced interviewing course, been to the olympics and para olympics, got taser booked in and hopefully PSU some time in the future. What i would say is, Yes it would be great for 6 months, maybe 2 years on response in the met or any other HO force but then when you actually want to do something else such as get promotion or specialise you have no where to go. I can't speak for the MET but all the HO forces in my area have no promotion opportunities, no chances of speciality teams unless job swap or maybe the odd one when someone retirees. No matter what it seems that every year BTP run promotion boards, PSU courses, search courses, Taser courses, Dog team vacancies, Firearms vacancies. Yes i know a lot of people take the piss out of our fire team but remember it has only been up and running year and a bit and has gone on leaps and bounds since then and watch this space things should be getting better again, I for one have no thoughts of transferring out of BTP now, for me im just trying to move down South in BTP. Feel free to pm me if you want a chat.

  9. BTP, has the end of the road been reached?

    I don't think BTP is going anywhere, we have managed to cut crime on the network for the last 5 years running I believe. We have some of it not the highest detection rate for Crimes out of any forces. Lead on some of the biggest counter terrorism projects around certain seceneories. We also police football fan on a weekly basis on a busy transport network keeping disruption to a minimum. We do all of this with less cops then most forces, and save the rail TOC'S a lot more money then they put into our force. We also help the local forces a lot to with football escorts from grounds, policing events, random disorder such as riots etc. I can't say for the rest of the force. I can't say for the rest of my force but having spoken to other colleagues we all help the local police when we can. We always listen to local channels and go to assist with various calls especially when a single crew unit is going. I personally am very grateful for the tremendous amount of support that yourselves give to our force every day. In London it's a different kettle of fish and we will attend all our own calls outside we don't have enough cops but that might be changing soon, BTP is going through a big restructuring program, and hopefully the results will be very positive. There has been talk that we would take over the motorways and airports for a long time. Personally I think we could do a fantastic job in relation to those areas, but would need the funding for it, I would like to see us take over the officers that already do those roles and then as the future goes on recurit from scratch. As it is you could pretty much put motorway cops in central location near our police stations anyway as most of them aren't far from motorway links. The next 5 years are going to be interesting time for BTP and I for one am looking forward to the new challenges!
  10. Decided I want to leave the Police

    Also have a look at soca website which will be the NCA come September and they have already posted over 35 roles for secondments for a 2 year period and you need to have CID training with PIP 2 for most of them at least that Give you a break new team and also they do investigate some great things and put away some horrible people..... Anyway just a thought
