  1. Hi All, This is my first post of PoliceUK. I would like to ask anyone if they could help in relation to my Great-Great-Great-Grandfather (Patrick Daly) who was a Metropolitan Policeman in London in April 1871 (Census). He lived in Paddington and Chelsea. I was still a Policeman in 1881 (Census). In May 1905 he was a Police Pensioner (Census). I would be grateful if anyone could help with research of Patrick or any organisation? Thanks in advance! Adam
  2. Hey guys, I'm hoping to apply to the Scottish police force in the near future (I believe they started accepting new applications as of the 2nd Sept) but my past few years may be looked on as unproductive to interviewers and I wanted to get an idea from you guys just how important this is. Basically I started a criminal justice course in 2009 (This was back when a degree could fast track you), was persuaded by family members not to pursue a police career and ended up dropping the subject and working for a year (Just bar work). After that I went back to Uni; a Computing degree with some contract work in between, which I got through for the first couple of years, but ultimately it is just not something I want to do for a living, for the rest of my life. Now I'm keen to get into the Police force again. Is this enough to rule me out as a possible candidate? I'm in excellent physical health and I'm willing to do whatever it might take to get in, just trying to prepare myself as best I can right now.
