    You've got nothing to worry about. Even if you did get caught speeding and convicted then you still wouldn't necessarily be declined. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    When I passed my vetting I wasn't contacted straight away, it was about a week after I'd passed that I was contacted and formally told I had passed vetting. If in doubt just ring the recruitment team or email in with a query, that's what I did and I got results. Baring in mind, mine wasn't with Police Scotland so it may be different! That's just my experience. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I do believe you can check the status of your vetting online (depending on which vetting you're doing). The site that was provided for me for example is https://www.nsv.mod.uk. You should have a username and password, from there you can see if it's still being processed or if you have passed. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    You have to understand that they have to be thorough when it comes to vetting for a police officer, they can't afford to initiate the wrong person into the force as ultimately it is a position which requires upmost trust. Initially on my phase 1 vetting I was declined on the basis that I was a witness to a crime when I was only 13 years old. I did later appeal and the decision was overturned after I provided a detailed account to the incident. That example just goes to show exactly how meticulous they are when it comes to choosing the right person for the job. And let's be honest, most police forces aren't short of applicants so they can afford to be picky. I understand how frustrating this must be for you, my advice would be to, if you can, appeal the vetting decision and write out an email explaining the situation exactly and what the circumstances were. Unfortunately though, urinating in public is a crime, so it won't help your case that you were caught doing it twice. It's a real shame but there's no point lingering on something that you can't change now. Hope this helps.
  6. My Introduction

    Hello, my name is James and I am applying to join the MOD police. I find this forum very helpful and have been reading it for about a year now without being a member. I have decided I want to try and activate my account so I can both ask questions and provide some input. Many thanks
