I was hoping for someone to give me some information about my issue.
I am currently a serving Police Officer in the Western Australia Police. My wife and I will be moving back to the UK in January 2014. I am an Australian citizen (and will have unrestricted rights in the UK) and my wife is British. I am hoping to join the British Police when we return.
I have done some research and understand that I will have to go through the recruitment process from the beginning. I can clearly see after many Google sessions that the British Police aren't screaming out for applicants as the Australian Police are, hence why I can't seem to find any information about Aussie Police transferring to the UK.
When we return in January I will have 3 years experience being a Police Officer (with a Diploma in Public Safety (Policing)) and an Associate Degree in Justice and Criminology. I have previously lived in the UK for about 3 years and have been advised by some Constabularies that my 3 years experience in the WA Police may be enough to allow me to get in.
I was hoping that someone out there may have been in my position as some point and could tell me about their experience getting into the UK Police. Whenever I contact Constabularies I tend to get a copy and paste response about the recruitment process.
Any help in this issue would be agreat help.
Thank you fior your time.
