  1. Police Scotland - 2nd March 2015 Intake

    Good luck to all of you starting on the 2nd, just remember and enjoy it, it can be stressful at the time and feel a bit regimented but the weeks fly in. Keep up your fitness as within the first week will be a bleep test and 1.5 mile run and some of the PE sessions can be fairly gruelling. The days in the classroom can be long so it's a welcome break for officer safety and role plays etc. make an effort to go for couple drinks on the Thursday nights to gets you away from the books for a bit. Most the tutors will tell you there are no past papers for practice but they are about just speak to the other courses and they can maybe help source you some. Enjoy bulling your boots
  2. police scotland april 2014 start

  4. Hi , former lothian borders here got my contract through on Thursday to. Think there is only 4 from l&b on the October 28th intake. Seemingly there is recruitment each month now but spread across all the pools. Contract is quite standard letter but think mine has a typo. Says I will be posted in my legacy force are. But then next paragraph says as part of police scotland you may be required to serve anywhere under the force. I'm gonna try sort out practice of the bleep test never done one before. Got ok times for my 1.5 mile run both times 10:14 . 10:42. (Was just back from a 2 week holiday)ha
