  1. Met Police Start date

    I still cannot believe this has happened! How could they have miscalculated so massively? If this happened in the private sector, heads would be rolling! Why don't the people at the top take a pay cut, not major but around 5-10%. See how many police officers they could put on the streets for that! At least David Cameron has rebuked them http://www.hrmagazine.co.uk/news/997464/Met-Police-HR-boss-hits-back-David-Camerons-attack-police-spending/ No other country in the world skimps when it comes to the police, army and fire service as they are what keeps the country safe. Its absolutely nonsense! I remember reading an article in the paper about the latest police gadget... a toy helicopter with a camera attached to it to be used as mobile cctv... great idea, but at £30,000 a pot its not really feasible. Luckily they must have realised this and only purcased 20! Also they could cut spending by reducing the amount of hours of overtime police take. They say that they need this time because they are often stretched, however surely it would be cheaper and more efficient to hire a few more officers who would be payed less to do more! Anyways whats done is done and I only have myself to blame for putting all my eggs in one basket! Next time i will take any job opportunity that comes and then leave if I get selected for the police! Anyone Interested in setting up a private security company to provide people with the opportunity to pay a small amount to get the safety that they should be getting from the police? If so pls message me. There is money to be made in this. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1206211/Fearful-parents-hiring-private-security-guards-walk-teenage-daughters-home-school.html

    I would like to know what everyone will be doing now! When I get the call I will apply for the surrey fire brigade as the have an "open recruitment" or try to apply as an officer in the army or navy. The worst thing about this is that everyone at my current job knows about me waiting to become a police officer and they will probably be lining up to give me comiserations and/or ribbings! Do you think its too late to amend my application to say I am Gay, Black/Bangladeshi, Muslim, and an Asylum Seeker?

    Hi again just found some interesting articles on how badly the police force is managed. May be able to use this as ammo. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/london/8570356.stm http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/8493107.stm http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/8589647.stm I did find a glimmer of hope though as follows: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/8050212.stm Oh and thank you labour for your service over the past 15 years, we wont be calling on you again!

    Has anyone been contacted today. I was one of the lucky ones (or unlucky) who did not recieve a phone call yesterday. The tension is killing me! If I do get a call I will try to organise a protest... anyone up for it?
  6. Has anyone had any news?

    As one of the many people waiting for a start date, I was wondering if anyone has gotten any letters/calls since the letter we all got at the end of march?
  7. Update letters have started being sent out

    Very Strange! I received a letter just after I had sent off my application form, saying that I had not made it through. However 2 weeks later I got a letter asking me to attend day 1!
  8. 3 Years in the Specials???

    Have just read a report on another part of this site that indicated that the recruitment change involving only specials being able to apply for the police officer roles will not start to be implemented until October 2011. Phew that is a weight off my mind.
  9. failed vetting for cadets

    Thats good news! Best of luck to him and his future career as a policeman.
  10. Funny Joke!

    Dave: "would you tell anyone if you woke up in the middle of the woods with a sore arse and a condom hanging out of your bum"? Ron: "hell no"!!! Dave: "would you like to come camping this weekend"?
