  1. Colour defective (colour blind) AFO

    Hello mate. I may be able to help you and I have lots of information that you can use. Sadly it's all personal to me an not for sharing here. I am however more than happy to send it to you privately when we can verify who we are etc. To get you started however do you know what your diagnosis is? This will have a big impact on whether met will take you. I know a colour blind AFO in the met and I know what tests he took and the problems he had, however he is in the met now doing the job. I think the best way to start would be for you to PM me your work email address and when I return to work I will email you from mine then we are both happy with who we are talking to. Please get in touch ASAP. I know of plenty of people who may be able to assist you. All the best.
  2. Hello, Northants are looking for transferees and I'm mulling it over as I fancy a change (which apparently is as good as a rest). Any constructive advice as to whether I should or shouldn't go for it. I'm currently with west Mids if that helps form any opinions. Thanks.

    I would love to help if I can. If you post on 10 topics (any topics) you will be able to pm me. Obviously I'll need to verify who you are (and likewise you verify me) but I should certainly be are to give you some advice, hopefully helpful. If you're an afo already you should be in a strong position. Get in touch ASAP.

    Ladies and gents. All this is a huge help for what I'm trying to accomplish. The current colour vision standards placed on certain roles have no factual basis at all. If possible could you please make direct contact with me and I will furnish you with more details. Time however is of the essence. Please get in touch! Unfortunately there is no way to contact you privately until you reach 10 posts on the forums. Let me remedy that! Bump Bump Bump

    I need to speak with you pretty urgently if possible? Are you in the job now? I take it you are due to the time you posted your reply. If you are I'll PM you my work email. Let me know ASAP please it's important for anyone who's CVD and had problems. Thanks
  13. Hi there, Following in from a post I replied to earlier are there any colour vision defective AFOs out there who would be able to get in touch with me? For certain reasons I won't go into just now I would like to speak with some AFOs who are colour blind and their employing forces are aware of their condition. Please either post on here or PM me. If possible supply me with your work email ( I will do the same) in private so I can ask you a few questions. All the best and thank you.
  14. Colour vision firearms test?..

    Muse. I would love to speak with you. Are you an afo? what force do you work for? Also to the original poster did you get through the selection process for firearms with your colour deficiency? Please could both of you get in touch ASAP? It's rather important and I may be able to assist the OP and vice versa if any problems have been encountered. The current standards for colour vision across 50% of England's forces are massively out of date and things could be afoot to make them change. Pm me please!!!!!
