  1. Hello

    Welcome aboard. Are you hoping to go from home office to CNC?
  2. Special constable

    Which force have you applied for? This may help as they hold different style interviews.
  3. BBC: Ryanair calls for two-drink limit at airports

    Interested to know how they would implement this. What system could they put in place to ensure each passenger sticks to a limit of only two drinks?
  4. Rather a silly one, ASP baton won't retract

    I'd suggest going to your trainers. They will know whether its faulty or if it's just new and needs wearing in a bit.
  5. Witness Statements

    There's nothing stopping you from making your own pro forma's. I like you am young in service but I always write my own on each separate occasion. Best way to get good at statement taking.
  6. Rather a silly one, ASP baton won't retract

    This is the same one I have. They are good quality batons and mine takes a good bit of banging to get back in. Are you sure you are hitting it hard enough? It could be bent, that can sometimes cause an issue.
  7. Selection process, how long does it take?

    For me it took about 5 months from applying to starting training. I think the usual time is around 6 months but they were quite desperate to get people started.

  13. Colour vision referral

    My application got put on hold for a different force because I couldn't see the number in one of the boxes on the Ishihara Color Vision test. I went and booked an appointment at specsavers the same day and they basically did the same test (just a longer version that's included in a standard eye test) which confirmed I had a slight defect. Didn't bar me getting in I think they just wanted confirmation.
  14. Our restricted area can only be accessed by serving UK police officers (civilian police, either Special or Regular) PCSO's and civilian police staff. It's designed as an area where all members of the police family can discuss issues which they may not feel comfortable sharing in the more public areas of the forum, or with people who aren't themselves serving in a constabulary. Entry and use of the area continues to be free of charge. Once you've been granted access to the restricted area, a new award will be added to your profile (it will appear overnight as that's when all new awards are automatically added although on occasion it can appear before). The 'Verified' ribbon looks like the one in the top right hand corner of this post except it will say verified and not Team. How to get access to the restricted forum area: Method 1 Send an email to support@ukpoliceonline.co.uk from a police email account (one which is of the format xxxx@forcename.pnn.police.uk) with the following information: Your full (real) name Which UK police force you work for Your rank/grade/job title (e.g. regular PC, Special Sergeant, PCSO, Staff member) Your collar number or force ID number Your PoliceCommunity/UKPO/PS/PUK username AND Which forum you would like access to (UK Police Online, PoliceSpecials, PoliceUK or Police Community) You must also raise a support ticket by accessing your client area under your name in the top right hand corner of the screen. Ensure you select the Verified Member option, this will open more boxes at the bottom of the screen These boxes must be completed to enable you to proceed On receipt of your email, it will be linked to your support ticket and you will be given access to the area - confirmed by reply to your police email address. The information you provide will only be used to confirm your right to access the forum area. Method 2 If you would prefer not to send an email from your work .pnn email, then raise a support ticket as per the instructions above and ensure you include your police email address. Once raised we will then email you at your police email address with a random word (which will of course be completely work safe!). You should be able to read 'incoming' email without breaching any force policy. Once you've read your police email, update your support ticket and tell us what the random word was. This will satisfy us that you have a police email account, and we can then give you access to the 'In the Job' area. Note: if you're going to use this method - which causes us the most work - then don't please just reply from your police email account. If you're going to do that anyway, just use Method 1 Method 3 We know that some officers don't have access to a police email account so as an alternative, you can send a scan of your warrant card or official ID card by raising a support ticket as per the above instructions and utilising the Attach Files option in the second picture. If you or your force are uncomfortable with sending pictures of your warrant card in this way, then simply don't do it. Please make sure that you state which forum you would like access to (UK Police Online, PoliceSpecials, PoliceUK or Police Community) Regards, UK Police Online Team
