  1. Police Scotland Recruitment

    Lol 26 is not old for the process! Quite a few fifty odd year olds were on my intake, I was 26 at the time and felt it was the right time for me, so it’s entirely up to if u feel its a good time for you. Im 28 now and in the division im in theres a fab mix of ages which is good for different aspects of the job!

    Regarding uniform fittings - it's not always a bad thing not hearing yet! I had my uniform fitting for A Div August 2016 and my intake was Dec 2016. When I arrived at Tulli to get my uniform bag, my trousers were too tight and I ended up having to get an emergency uniform order. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Dinnae panic! The longer they leave it the better.

    You find out around a couple of weeks before Tulliallan which division you get, and it varies for intakes about what station. I found out on Week two what station I was getting, but iv heard of intakes since that are 4/5 weeks in before they know. A division is a big area especially, and could mean miles of difference for travelling etc so the earlier the better. good luck to everyone going through the process just now

    Hey Becky, iv been through the whole process. The qucikest iv heard of folk getting to Tulli in the West is about 18 months to 2 years of recent. I am from the North - the shortest in timescale and I was a year and 4 months. So, if there is opportunity for another role mean time - do it. U have to think of yourself. Xx

    The exam is 80 questions if i remember correct, its multiple choice, and you dont get to take notes in with you. it covers all the modules you have done throughout the course. At the end of each module you go a Knowledge Check which is the same style as the exam. Also there are definitions tests, where you learn defitions of crimes etc. There are also different assessments once you leave Tulliallan throughout the 2 year probation period.

    Your welcome. Any other questions feel free to fire away. Have an amazing time at Tulliallan when it comes!

    Ehhh not too sure about that, I found the first week absolutely fine! There is only 1 fitness test in the first week, thats your bleep test. The rest of your first week is just settling you in, telling you about what to expect. Your oath ceremony is the middle of the first week too when you get ur warrant card and uniform. They can be a bit strict with you on the first week, but as everyone always says, play the game and you will be fine!
