    Firearms information

    Hello, I’ve been a cop for several years now and looking to progress into an ARV role. I was just wondering if there was any ado/arv guys or gals on here who I would be willing talk to me a bit more about the role/role selection. (Not the training aspect) Cheers, DarkAlex
  2. Its good to hear ... but on compassionate grounds makes it sound like they could say no to spite you. Ill have a look at the intranet....! Cheers Dizzy. Spite sounds horrible I take that back...
  3. Just as stated in the topic heading. I just want a rough opinion/guidance on the situation before I approach my line manager about it. Essentially my partner is moving up to north division (for non police related work) and has asked about me transferring....sadly I am technically just in the door and been at division for a few weeks in legacy strathclyde, does anyone know what to do (if at all possible) on transferring divisions? Cheers, Dark Alex

    Just a quick question in regards to parade shoes.... Do they need to have the oxford toe cap or not? Like this

    Police Scotland, First Intake?

    Yeah far too much conflicting info. I'll go with the Tulliallan website "Module 2 - Ten week residential course at the Scottish Police College."http://tulliallan.police.uk/policetraining/probationermodule2.aspx

    To be completely honest I am alittle worried about the amount of legislative work that 10 weeks (or as previously mentioned potential 12) that training will throw at us. But then again, the instructors are top people so, I guess as long as we (I) keep our (my) mind focused it shouldn't be too bad. Fitness ain't ridiculously bad...could be better personally. Oh yeah and more importantly - the food.

    If people are beginning vetting and medicals again then.... "whoop whoop sound of da police" Final fitnesses in this weather though will be killer.

    I didn't mean to sound like a right ar$e. I seen its a bit of a push for people. But then again, is it not about saving money? If theres any change. I reckon it'll be to bring the first year exams back to the initial training phase/module 2 while you are there in the training environment. Time will tell, I guess.

    Whats your source for tulliallan going back to 12 weeks? (out of interest)

    Im sure uniform fitting is right at the end as well. (FPI in Feb and medical in Feb, I have had my medical and waiting for final fitness for general reference/time scales for other folk wondering) No point in the uniform fitting incase you fail the fitness...even at that alter weight training for fitness...
