    Police Scotland Recruitment

    Can’t hurt to know a bit about each one but I would spend more time looking at the local priorties for the area you stay in or wish to work it. That will score higher, showing you’ve put the effort in to researching your area. Look at the local policing plan on the website, there’s tons of information there which can be really useful in interview. You’ll find a lot of the local priorities link into the national ones too.

    15 squat jumps, run the length of the football pitch, then 15 press ups then you go again but, 14, 13 etc until you’re right down to 1!

    Accommodation in Aberdeen

    Hey mate, I’m a cop in Aberdeen, there’s quite often cops looking to rent out rooms. I’m on leave until next week but I’ll have a look at the notice board at queen street when I’m back as there’s often adverts there 😊

    Vetting concerns

    Ah so just a Fixed Penalty Fine then, not an actual conviction. You should be fine mate, declare them 100% but I’d highly doubt that it would hold you back with your application. Good luck 😊

    Also, did you actually get charged with having no insurance when you were driving your pal's car?

    Vetting concerns

    I don’t think these will hold you back. Like you say they were years ago, you’ve matured a lot since. Declared them and they may discuss with you but i think you’ll be fine

    P.E at tulli

    Hi, it's a mix of fitness activities. Some of the sessions are in the gym hall/outside, doing interval based body weight training. There is some running too but it's not for much distances. The most we did was the mile and a half run which was timed.

    A plain round neck t-shirt is fine, doesn’t need to be P/S

    Tulliallan - curent students

    Hello, the day is 8.30am to about 4.30pm/5pm Mon-Thu and then 8.30am-2.30pm on a Friday. No holidays while you are there. Once you are finished at 4.30pm/5pm your time is pretty much yours, once you get to about week 6/7 there's a good bit of studying to do in the evenings. There's also lots of (optional) fitness activities going on in the evenings, some of the staff run fitness classes or running clubs etc.

    Bleep Test

    Practice interval sprints, you can do either indoor or outdoor, run fast for a period of time, then slow, then fast, then slow etc etc. Keep changing the timings of your rest and work etc.

    That won’t matter, as long as long as you physically fit, you will be fine. Don’t crash diet, you’ll just make yourself ill and probably won’t lose that much weight. I joined with a couple of rugby guys, their BMI was well over 30, but they were able to show they were fit.
