    1st day of training

    Hello Gabby I’m still in my training, 6 weeks in but loving it. I’m with Durham so not sure if it will be the same but as for myself first day/week is just an adjustment period getting introduced to your cohort, lots of introductions, full of talks from various people/organisations but I did get the timetable on the first day, which gives the content week to week so you have a good idea what you’ll be doing. We were told that if we had a particular location for station in mind then to let them know, and if you’re uncomfortable with were they do post you to let them know and they’ll try their best to accommodate. I was given the info on my station in the 3rd week I believe. So so far we’ve been told a lot on various categories. So currently we’re doing traffic, we’ve done stop search, powers of arrest, personal saftery training(very fun), crime scene just to name a few. Throughout we’ve been given various role plays to deal with. Not sure if it’ll be the same but gives you an idea of what’s to come hopefully. Overall just enjoy it, everyone’s in the same boat and nervous so don’t worry :)

    Training-uniform question

    Good evening people, I have my start date on Coming up soon I will be attending HQ in order to get my photograph for my ID card. I have just re-read my letters and it states to arrive in uniform, I’m going to assume that this is the boots,trousers, t shirt and jacket and not the stab vest. Probably a stupid question but hey ho, assurance would be great.
