    I don't mind creating one, if people want to pm me then I can sort it.

    I know exactly how you feel but don’t worry too much if you can help it. They have so many candidates to go through so there will likely be a bit of time between when one person hears to the next? Perhaps it’s also because they are still trying to firm up divisions for people. I am in the same boat, my notice has to go in tomo and my heart sank a little when I heard some people had their offers. You do panic a bit. We have got this far, we will be grand 👍🏻It is frustrating - hopefully some more final offers will be going out tomo! X

    Just handed my notice in. Offer says divisions will be revealed in two weeks, which isn’t what I’ve been told when I’ve asked previously. Fingers crossed for something not ridiculously far from home. The actual letter says ‘you must be prepared to serve anywhere in Scotland’... I’m presuming this is just a formality though, as surely the posting preference says that you’re guaranteed one of your chosen divisions? Excited and nervous... it’s getting real!

    Keep the faith. I might have just got lucky. Like I say, they seem insanely busy. I’ve got a sore thumb from refreshing my emails on my phone this week! Let us know how you get on.

    How exciting for you! My friend was previously asked to go to J division(3rd div) and she had a call asking if she'd rather her first choice of E as spaces were now available. They know where they want to place everyone, I suppose it just gives them extra time to adjust should anyone no longer be available etc.

    Yeah the inspector has approved them in principle. Just need that validated once the works done. I think I remember seeing who you where because when they called your name on the register I put 2 and 2 together. Forgot to introduce myself tho. 😆

    It's definitely common. My group the other week had a lad at the AC for the 3rd time and another guy who was on his 4th go and first time at the AC.

    Hello, I just thought I’d put a post on here as I know found this beneficial during the recruitment process. I’m currently a probationer at Tullialan, went through the West recruitment and I’m posted to west command & if anyone has any questions then please feel free to fire any my way and I’ll do my best to answer them.

Therefore, if you want to share a Police Oracle story, please only include the first line of the article and a link to the original article. All news articles will be hidden until moderator approval is given. Before posting in the News area can I please request that you: . post the story (for BBC news articles only) or the first line of the article (all other sources) and not just a link.

    For a lot of reasons the day to day running of the TSG cant be discussed on a public forum. If you are applying to the MDP you will have the opportunity to speak to one of the guys as they are very keen to explain what they do in person (limited to security clearance of course) As its stands, no you do not have to be out of probation to start with the TSG! As long as you meet the increased fitness requirements and can pass the higher level of weapon and tactic training then you have every opportunity to apply as anyone else in the MDP! Just bear in mind that when I say a higher level of fitness and weapon/tactic training......I really do mean that :-) Best of luck
