    Police Scotland Recruitment

    Everyone who is disheartened about the long wait, don't be. It's all part of the process. I applied last March, and that's me just passed out of Tulliallan yesterday, but if it's what you really want to do, the wait is worth it.

    I don't know your personal circumstances but presuming you are on a permanent, full time contract, if your employer was to try and 'get rid' of you just for applying for another job then they wouldn't have a leg to stand on.

    Don't tell them until you really feel that you need to. Recruitment generally won't contact your current employer for references until they are fairly confident they will be starting you.

    If you have any queries, call them to put your mind at ease. That's what they're there for and in any case, it's good to look keen.

    Ask them about what happens during their probationary period, what they did at Tulliallan. Remember you are there, speaking to a probationer for a reason - as they are in their probation and are fresh in the sense that they can give first hand information about what they are currently going through. So use the time wisely. Edited to add: Ask them about current local issues in particular and any current campaigns that may be running in your local area. You could also ask specifically what sorts of people/groups they work in partnership with, within the local community.

    You won't be notified about vetting unless you fail it, or unless you ask directly if you have passed.

    At your Final Fitness you are given joining instructions which includes a kit list for Tulliallan.

    SMT process

    They do of course! I don't know exactly but it's months anyway for sure. The SMT results take about a week to come back as well, whereas the Urine test is immediate based on colour I'm sure?? Yeah it's a great feeling after a long, long wait!

    SMT process

    The Urine sample, I believe, is more to do with infections and illnesses, at your SMT you only get your hair sample taken. You will be contacted usually for SMT and FF when they have your start date.
