    Police Scotland Recruitment

    Hey Si, I used my old boss as a reference, but there was no response for 2months until police let me know they hadnt responded.I phoned my unit and a different boss was still there who knew me, So i had him do my reference. However, I think there is someone at each unit whos job is for references if your boss has left. your second referee, If youve only been employed by one company would be someone who knows you. Could be an organisation your part of, sometimes they allow a friend. But double check with Recruitment on second referee. Phone old unit and find out if someones able to, post never found its way to my boss so they emailed personally. Dean Sent from my SM-G925F using Tapatalk

    Just found out, apparently the tape is to make a clear line on your boot/shoe for polishing. So theres distinctive line on the bulled area. Sent from my SM-G925F using Tapatalk

    Yeah was thinking of popping over and buying in person, rather than online. Hopefully boots are acceptable. Anyone known what the parcel tape is for yet? Sent from my SM-G925F using Tapatalk

    Ive not bought any kit yet, but once you get your uniform fitting email, that allows you to buy from the Police store. Not sure if anyone knows the answer, but, it asks us to choose boots/shoes for working and parade. Everyone seems to just be discussing shoes for parades. Are we actually allowed boots for parades? Id much rather boots. Sent from my SM-G925F using Tapatalk
