    Police Scotland Recruitment

    Hiya This is an option, you will have to travel on public transport for when u arrive, but the admin staff can arrange a hire car to use on the first Friday ur at Tulli that u then bring back the Monday. You have to fill in the form on a weekly basis, its usually done on the Monday to prepare for the Friday. Hope this helps.

    Hi, Im a year and a half into my probation but even back then I found out on the dot 4 weeks before the intake date that I was on that intake, im A division so that is the norm. All the formal offers come from Jackton.

    I use Altbergs in the Ladies and find them tight fitting definely go up the half size as recommended. I made the mistake of buying too tight to start - thankfully got them siezed at a serious incident so got a new pair after that a half size bigger. Made all the difference!

    You wont get it written in writing, the word to say you were fit and itl be passed on is all that will happen. Now itl be a waiting game from your recruitment dept for a final fitness and smt date.

    Lol 26 is not old for the process! Quite a few fifty odd year olds were on my intake, I was 26 at the time and felt it was the right time for me, so it’s entirely up to if u feel its a good time for you. Im 28 now and in the division im in theres a fab mix of ages which is good for different aspects of the job!

    Regarding uniform fittings - it's not always a bad thing not hearing yet! I had my uniform fitting for A Div August 2016 and my intake was Dec 2016. When I arrived at Tulli to get my uniform bag, my trousers were too tight and I ended up having to get an emergency uniform order. ??? Dinnae panic! The longer they leave it the better.

    You find out around a couple of weeks before Tulliallan which division you get, and it varies for intakes about what station. I found out on Week two what station I was getting, but iv heard of intakes since that are 4/5 weeks in before they know. A division is a big area especially, and could mean miles of difference for travelling etc so the earlier the better. good luck to everyone going through the process just now

    Hey Becky, iv been through the whole process. The qucikest iv heard of folk getting to Tulli in the West is about 18 months to 2 years of recent. I am from the North - the shortest in timescale and I was a year and 4 months. So, if there is opportunity for another role mean time - do it. U have to think of yourself. Xx
