  1. Derbyshire PC Recruitment 2013

    No problem. My advice for the interviews is to learn as much about the county as possible. Make sure that you can evidence links to the county, and good reasons for wanting to work for derbyshire force specifically. Also make sure that you are knowledgable about any recent news about Derbyshire constabulary. Also learn about the structure of Derbyshire constabulary and their force values, priorities etc.. I was also asked to talk about my personal values and how i could use these to benefit the force. So thats probably worth thinking about. Good Luck to you all!
  2. Derbyshire PC Recruitment 2013

    I went through derbyshires recruitment process last year. We had local interviews before the assessment centre. There was a formal interview as part of the assessment centre but no further interview after that. Just medicals/fitness etc.
  3. Stab vests

    Specials and PC's are still wearing the black stab vests, there is the proviso that they should be wearing the High Vis Harness over the top. PCSO's have now been issued with the Full High vis stab vest covers. There are rumours that they will start issuing these to PC roles aswell due to complaints about the heat and weight of wearing another harness over the top of an already heavy piece of kit. I aggree that the Black looks alot smarter though!

  5. Derbyshire Info Sessions

    medical history review, blood pressure, lung capacity, hearing, grip strength test, touch your toes, weighing, height measurement. Thats all i remember. this is with a nurse. you then meet with the doctor who decides wether you are healthy enough for duty. if so he seals your records and signs to say all is good. Good luck! you on the june intake?

    As I understood it they are sending them together as a score would just be a meaningless number this time round. I really hope so anyway

    i think the pass mark is 50. its a bit irrelevant this time round as they are taking the top 80 scorers. the only way to secure a place would be to be one of those 80. they are however keeping a reserve list to replace those candidates who fail their medical/fitness.

    Feeling more positive than i thought I would but still not sure its enough. Its 14 working days so closer to 3 weeks really.
