    BTW folks, I would recommend the book "Police Officers Guide 2013, a Handbook for Police Officers of England, Scotland and Wales". My fiance bought me it as a new job gift, and I am really chuffed with it. She was trying to get me the Scottish Beat Officers Companion 2012/13 but it is harder to find than gold-dust. That's prob something we could get out of tuli library. Some of the stuff in it you have to ignore because its England and wales, but most of it answers a few of the wee, annoying questions that you dont feel like asking. Hows everyone doing? Stomachs doing somersaults yet?

    nhughes89...I had a lot of problems with my previous employers as well. Took me about three weeks to get a reference from my last place. Just try and hound your prev employers as much as possible (its illegal to give a bad reference these days anyway) and keep in touch with the recruitment staff. they can be very understanding and helpful as long as you keep them in the loop.

    yeah, we were told at the final fitness that there would be no issue with kids being there. I faced a similar dilemma with my family. My fiance and I have a 4 month old son and have yet to get a good family picture and the oath of office night would be perfect. however, it is 7pm until 10pm and thats a lot of time to occupy and amuse a four month old lol. so, for yourself mark, you will have to think if its fair that your daughter sit and watch for 3 hours. if you think she can, then there shouldnt be a problem, Im sure she will be very proud ;-)

    what do you mean by format? you mean how the night will go or how the evening is structured? p.s we should find out some time this week, hopefully they have already been sent and its just up to royal mail now

    I got my invite for the oath of office for my four friends and family yesterday...starting to get more and more real :-) any one else get theirs? has everyone sent away the provisional for the minibus licence? do you need a decision from the dvla before you start?

    I finish on friday also. cannot wait to spend time with my fiance and wee boy before the college. Really excited about starting. I have a pair of steel toe capped boots that are easy to polish, my uncle who used to be in the MOD police bought me them. He said I would probs have to get another pair for when i start on the beat though, as running in steelys wouldnt be very fun I dont think lol.
