  1. Made to work all hours!

    This may seem unfair but this should have been expected. Policing is a 24-hour job and people should expect to work nights, weekends, and holidays. My best bet would be scheduling such days off many months in advance, and even then, it may get cancelled at the last minute. This is my opinion though, none others.
  2. Colour defective (colour blind) AFO

    There are different ways of testing colour blindness. In one test I'm definitely colourblind, in another, I have perfect vision.
  3. C. Spencer Introduction

    I've wanted to become a Police Constable since I was about 7 and everything about policing interests me. I have my fair share of reasons why I want to join the Metropolitan Police now but initially, I didn't - it almost feels like a calling. I know it's cheesy but it's true. Additionally, I took interest in SFOs when I was younger and, since then, have a growing interest in the firearms units (namely SC&O19). If this was an interview: That's where I see myself in 5 years. Again, initially, I didn't have a reason - it just feels like a calling. I was just drawn to it, though I wouldn't mind specialising in any department. I'm only 18 and I decided to apply straight-away. I was hesitant at first because I don't see many police officers below 20 years of age and assumed it's because the police don't generally look for people THAT young. I have attended the assessment days and, as far as I'm concerned, have passed everything that didn't need investigating (fitness test, etc). I am currently waiting for my vetting now. I have been spoken to by an officer for playing "knock-knock" when I was about 9 or 10 and it was only at the road-side. Nothing happened. I declared it of course but I doubt I'd fail my vetting because of it. My family have no financial issues or anything like that so I am very confident that I'll be successful. However, It always worries me when I read that people are denied and told they may never, under any circumstances, in any capacity apply for the force again.
  4. You can apply for the role of a Police Special Constable or New Police Constable while either is on-going. Ex: If your New PC application is on-going, you may apply for Special Constable. If you pass your 'Day 1 Assessment', you will not need to complete this again for some period of time so you'd proceed straight to the latter assessment ("day2") if you pass the sift stage of the application and so forth. I called the Metropolitan Recruitment Team and they confirmed this. ---- I highly doubt you'll be able to hold both offices, though, so if you pass you may be faced with making a decision. Police Constable or Police Special. Though, I believe PC always takes precedence. I hope this helps. New member, C.Spencer
