  1. If your wife is a physiotherapist, then she is obviously in a better position to give accurate advice. Good effort for not skipping leg day lol, that sounds very encouraging. I guess it comes down to how likely the injury would re-occur whilst on duty. Whilst It's unlikely that you would be required to yomp with a house on your back in the police, unless your in a specific AFO role (some of their kit is cumbersome), it's highly likely that at some point you will find yourself rolling on the floor with a suspect. All the best with your decision to apply and I hope that you find the information your seeking. Like I said, contacting the recruitment team for the force you're looking to join would be your best option, for accurate advice. Sent from my E6653 using Tapatalk
  2. Afternoon Royal, good to see another Bootneck on here. Can't give any advice that would be of any use, apart from speak to HR / occupational health for advice. I've had a knee injury in recent years, not to your extent. From my limited knowledge, it's because once you dislocate a joint, it's easier to re-injure yourself following that. Knee surgery will result in a weakened knee - it won't get back to the same strength. I've chitted in because I'm waiting for vetting to clear before I start in two months. Make sure you get good advice before pressing the button, I was told that the corps is toppers and I couldn't withdraw it afterwards. Speak to your surgeon, or a GP. The medical form is a print off that you give to sick bay and the doctor fills in, based on your medical records. Occupational health just run through that and make sure that it's correct. Fitness wise, you'll be far above the minimum required, it's potential for future injury that will be the problem. Sent from my E6653 using Tapatalk
  3. I get your point. I guess I'm just nervous just in case it was recorded somewhere. You hear about so many failures at the last hurdle! Many thanks to everyone who contributed [emoji108] Sent from my E6653 using Tapatalk
  4. Brilliant, thanks for the advice, wht do you think about being breathalysed? Sent from my E6653 using Tapatalk
  5. Just after a bit of advice to put my mind at ease. Two things: - In 2007/2008 I was seen leaving a night club, getting in my car and driving away. This was subsequently reported and I was pulled over by the police. I carried out a roadside breathalyser test after being asked where i was going and where I had come from etc... The test result was 0 (hadn't been drinking), after which I was allowed to go on my way. - in 2011, I was pulled over late at night for exceeding the speed limit. After carrying out the relevant checks on my driving licence and vehicle, I was given words of advice to slow down and sent on my way. On neither occasions was any paperwork filled out, or tickets issued. Obviously I am going to disclose these two occasions, but I am wondering if they would have been recorded on the systems in the first place or should I even be worried about them given the time frame?

  6. Exactly, it's up to the force to choose one of the mentioned written tests. Not all forces accept transferred assessment centre scores though, D&C don't. Best of luck whatever you decide. It's a dilemma. Sent from my E6653 using Tapatalk
  7. The information states that forces have the option of carrying out one of stated English tests. But it's not an alternative if you're not successful. This is a screen shot of the 'information to applicant's attending the SEARCH assessment centre, of which I had emailled directly to me by HR, it's also available on the College of Policing website. If it's advice that you're after, I would reapply and do the SEARCH assessment centre again. It's a pain in the arse, but if you had to join a different force and wanted to transfer later, to be closer to home, you may not be able to because you failed the written part.

  8. The screen shot doesn't prove anything, it doesn't state what the pass marks are. If you look in the information provided to your prior to the SEARCH assessment centre, forces can use other things than the English test at the assessment centre. That should provide you with enough information. Failing that, College of Policing website. I haven't heard of any forces using any other method though. Apart from police of Scotland, they chinned off SEARCH all together. Sent from my E6653 using Tapatalk
  9. I know what your talking about, I know that d&c, a+s and Hampshire require you to have passed written communication at the assessment centre. I would think that it would be a standard set across the board for everyone though. The force that I passed with didnt even assess written communication on the application and know that Humberside don't even include the competency based questions on the application. Did you manage to find a force that accepts that? Sent from my E6653 using Tapatalk
  10. What score did you get on the written? I'm aware of forces that allow you to transfer SEARCH assessment scores, but obviously you have to have met the pass mark for their written... Sent from my E6653 using Tapatalk
  11. I'd be interested to know what the real number is. Sent from my E6653 using Tapatalk
  12. Not sure why it put cbrn, ignore that. Sent from my E6653 using Tapatalk
  13. I would turn up in smart casual or a suit cbrn just to be safe. Sent from my E6653 using Tapatalk
  14. Sorry I replied to the wrong person. I would suggest that you speak to HR, did it tell you what you failed on? I feel for you. I am leaving the forces at the moment and I'm waiting on a provisional start date before I start vetting. Sent from my E6653 using Tapatalk Sent from my E6653 using Tapatalk
