    MOD to Police Scotland

    Transfer from PS to MOD? Really? I’ve never heard of anyone doing that before. You should settle in fine, just expect a lot of jokes!

    Police Scotland Recruitment

    Not good! My mates just applied for N last month and has been given an interview date for Dec which I was surprised at. Have they told you where they’ll likely send you?

    Pressing charges

    Why don’t you get her to speak to Victim Support Scotland about it? They’ll give her good advice on what to do.

    Accommodation in Aberdeen

    Yeah it’s scandalous, you should be agreeing to where you’re going prior to starting training. Especially when they give you absolutely no financial help when you move away.

    Accommodation in Aberdeen

    What was your division choices? Really surprised they’ve done that to you, I’d personally call it quits. I understand that operational reasons are important but so are officers welfare and when you’re forcing them to move away from their family with no police houses etc. I’d tell them to stick their job. Yeah it’s a good job but your family and living conditions are far more important.

    Police Scotland Recruitment

    Why did you put down L div if you can’t go there? Surely A div would have been better because you could have done Forres/Elgin etc.
  7. You say it’s out of character but I don’t agree, if a person does it once it’s likely they’re capable of doing it again and if it were me I’d be getting away from the relationship and moving on. Any man that hits a woman deserves everything they get for it.

    Vetting concerns

    I'm not sure they're allowed to ask you about it during interview, it's the vetting team's decision so if they have any questions I'd imagine they'd ask you directly. Don't quote me on that though! I had a declaration when I originally submitted my application and it was never mentioned in the interview. I was never given a penalty or went to court for it though, it was just a complaint I had made against me when I was a Special.

    Vetting concerns

    To be honest you’re not going to get the answer here, you’d be best speaking to recruitment. They aren’t the worst crimes so I’m not sure what they’d do.
  10. Well he’s definitely committing and offence and so is the owners the vehicle. He’s needs his provisional licence, insurance and a suitable person to supervise him.
  11. As long as you own the land and it’s not accessible by the general public.

    Police Scotland Recruitment

    The Specials is a complete waste of time if you’re only doing it to become a PC. They don’t take it into consideration and don’t mention it. if you’re wanting in just keeping practicing your interview skills because that’s all they’re looking for they don’t need super hero stories.
  13. You were caught speeding, sorry but that’s just life. It doesn’t matter what your reason for it is you were caught full stop. You have the right to take it to court but when you’re given a fine and points you aren’t accepting guilt of the offence you’re accepting that it was likely to have happened. If you go to court and you’re found guilty it becomes a conviction and the JP/Sheriff could punish you more if they wanted too. You can of course make a complaint against the driver but it will make no difference to your licence.
  14. Not sure.... I may need to report you to the professional standards of the cycling proficiency badge organisation!

    Shotgun query from a writer

    Yes you can, I know in airports for example they use a swab system that basically smells the swab material for explosive/firearm materials and will alarm if it gets a positive test.
  16. You’re not qualified to tell someone to ignore a ticket.
  17. Not sure what the joke is? What aspect of it is funny? Just comes across as bullying and breaching someone’s privacy.
  18. This is not the correct advice, to answer your question it’s not a Police matter and there is no legislation that allows them to do this. Parking tickets issued by these companies are civil disputes (basically you’ve broken a contract and the other party thinks they are due compensation) the only person that can advise on this are solicitors not Police officers.
  19. See rather than trying to get legal information from complete strangers on a website you need to speak to a proper qualified solicitor and get decent legal advice and it’s too important to get wrong. This isn’t a policing issue.

    They will do it again they just won’t look at the original issue/concern.

    Police Scotland Recruitment

    They might challenge you on it and, for example they might ask people with racist/sexist etc. views isn’t that just freedom of speech?

    SET and Fitness Test

    If your application was sent to vetting first and then you’ve been invited to the next stage of recruitment then you’re vetting has came back fine. It happened to me.

    SET and Fitness Test

    Why are you not doing it via Edinburgh or Jackton? Bit of a trek for a test!
  25. It’s an offence to cause an obstruction on a public’s highway, call the police and they’ll sort it.
