  1. New Starters

    Anyone else suddenly got nervous? I've been cool as a cucumber about the whole thing until about 15 minutes ago when I sat down to read all the stuff they emailed out at the end of last week.

    About buying boots...mate of mine in th MET said get hi tech magnums. Seeing as he has beein at it 8 years now i'll go along with what he has said. My question is how can you tell what are approved boots? Is there a list? What do you think of these are they ok....? http://www.patrolstore.com/Magnum-Boots-Classic-CEN-p-225.html Two weeks Friday till I finish work now, wee little holiday abroad then the police starts! This is shaping up to be a good month.

    Few questions to you folks if I may What hours do you work during intial 19 weeks training? What does the shift patern look like for Merseyside Police once you are on the job?
  11. New Starters

    Im not on for Jan intake but looking good for March, personally I dont think i can afford to join up at 19k. Was taking a bit of a pay cut to sign up in the first place but this would be a big pay cut and not sure I can afford it. I swear to god there cannot be anymore spanners out there to chuck in the works
  12. Merseyside on Hold..

    Ive got my DNA this week as well, have to go to see the nurse again as well as medical ran out 2 weeks ago Bit worried about my Christmas chub - only started properly training again last week
  13. New Starters

    I reckon so but until the official call comes in not holding my breath, just dont want to go and spend £800 on a holiday I cant go on in the summer Anyone know about taking time off in first 19 weeks?
  14. New Starters

    Hello New Starters, Im one of the old Non Starters Spoke to the recruitment folk today and its sounding really positive for intake 3 to go ahead in a few months, but I was wondering has anything been said, or do you know if you are allowed holidays during the initial training period? And if not are you allowed holidays during thre first few months on the job? Missus wants to go away but I am a bit hesitant to pay out for a holiday I might be able to go on Cheers

    Calmed down a bit now, sorry for ranting not what people want to hear after bad news, I'm sure it will happen eventually, it would just be nice to be given a vague idea when. Somone somewhere knows 'the plan' they just need to share it with us good people waiting in the wings. PS merry christmas
