    PDR - Appraisal etc

    What I believe you may be referring to the the new scheme from the College of policing whereby to get your yearly increment rise for those not already at the top point. To do so you have to complete a kind of portfolio evidencing you have met certain criteria (similar to the SOLAP) I know in our force it only affects those with just over two years in or below for the time being but no doubt will be brought in to the other pay points over time so just hope you get top whack before then. With regards to taking away pay they aren't doing that, rathet just preventing you from moving up the scale until you meet the criteria. Sent from my SM-G925F using Tapatalk

    hi all, Ive had a look around the forum with regard to footwear and a lot of people tend to suggest, magnums,lowa and such like. however are these suitable for initial training (ie 1st 6 months) or are you required to wear something more formal at this stage, as i cant seem to find a definitive answer and dont want to go ahead and pay a large sum on boots when they wouldnt be suitable whilst im in training thanks

    october 2010 intakes

    just wondered if anyone who started on the intake in october could tell us how they are finding it and what to expect, it would be good to have an insight into what awaits us when they finally have another intake

    2011 Start date???

    i spoke to a recruitment the other week and they said they will know more, come february possibly beggining of march. my money is on the next intake probably not being to april/may time although if the next few months go as quick as january has, it will be here in no time at all

    Lincolnshire-its all gone tits up.....

    so just read in the skeggy target that after the next intake in october lincs are putting on hold the next intake that was due in february time untill they know in the new year the full extent of the forces budget. bit of a downer like but hopefully once they reviewed it all they will realise they can still go ahead with the intake, as ive passed everything now and just waiting on my vetting to be cleared which has take about 6 weeks already. this is the link to the article http://www.thisislincolnshire.co.uk/news/Lincolnshire-Police-recruitment-drive-hold/article-2661738-detail/article.html

    vetting- sickness

    hi all, ive today just received my vetting forms to fill out and just had a quick question i was hoping someone may be able to answer until i ring recruitment on monday. on the form it mentions abscence from previous employment. i as just wondering what the limtis were with regard to this. now in the last 18 months ive had 4 days off due to illness although 3 of this were with my previous employer who i had worked for, for 13 months the the other in my current role where ive been for 5 months. would the force see this as excessive. any help much appreciated
  13. on tuesday this week i had my final interview for lincs and passed it. and have my fitness next month. just out of curiousity how long di it take them to get back to you letting you know you medical and security checks were ok.. as much as i believe what your saying as well i really hope this meeting you mentioned isnt true as dont think i could bear to have to wait any longer.

    hi just a quick question, ive got to the security part of the application process and was just after further info with regard to what they look for at this stage. i know myself, my partner and parents all have no criminal records, however i have a half brother who my dad had when he was 18. i havent seen him for years and he lives in a totally different county. however im led to believe he has had trouble with the police in the past. im obviously goin to declare him but does anyone know whether it will result in me failing the vetting?? thanks all
