  1. The interviewer noted the "strong smell" of alcohol from the man in his late 40s. A thirsty motorist who turned up for an IT job with Greater Manchester Police ended up getting arrested and losing his licence. Andrew Jackson, 48, attended GMP Sedgely Park in Sedgely Park Road, Manchester, hoping to land an IT management position only to end up in court. Two senior GMP members of staff were holding the interviews and described the “overwhelming” smell of alcohol as soon as he opened his mouth. The interviewer said: “I asked if he had any trouble in finding us, as soon as he began to speak I could smell something on his breath which I was thought was stale alcohol. “He mentioned that he did have a little trouble in finding somewhere to park, which immediately raised concerns. “Shortly after he arrived in the small office, the smell of alcohol became overpowering. “I decided to continue with the interview, which lasted for about an hour, but throughout the whole time I was sure that the candidate smelt strongly of drink and was considering what to do next. “I didn’t want the man returning to his vehicle, given the obvious smell of alcohol. I couldn’t live with myself if there had been a collision and someone ended up seriously hurt.” A traffic officer was sent for who asked the interviewee if he had been drinking, to which the man said he and his wife had shared a bottle of wine with dinner the night before. The man was subsequently breathalysed showing him to be over the drink drive limit, he was then taken to Bury Police station where he was tested again to confirm the reading and charged with drink driving. On February 10, 2017, at Bury and Rochdale magistrates court Jackson pleaded guilty to being in control of a vehicle while over the legal drink driving limit. He was disqualified from driving for one year and fined £235. His driving ban will be reduced to seven months if he successfully completes a drink driving awareness course within a given time. Inspector Tony Allt, of GMP’s Roads Policing Unit, said: “Although the circumstances surrounding this particular incident are unusual, this case highlights the fact that there are a number of motorists who think they are fine to drive after drinking the night before. “There are a number of factors that can determine how alcohol is absorbed and processed in the body, but for the individual in this case to give a reading of 46 micrograms, remembering that the legal limit is 35, clearly shows that a significant amount of drink must have been consumed the previous evening. “If in doubt of your alcohol level, seek alternative travel arrangements. Never drive while over the limit and risk losing your licence, livelihood or possibly your or someone else’s life. Always make it none for the road.” View on Police Oracle
  2. Force Interview (Leicestershire)

    Hello Guys, I have been successful in my application form for Leicestershire Police and I have now been invited to a 'Force Interview' it is in two week and I am bricking it. Can't find much information on what is actually going to be asked of me at the interview, wondering if anybody can give me some bullet points or even what their experience was at the Force Interview stage. Would appreciate any and all info you can give. Questions asked, things they are looking for, good answers & bad answers etc. Thank you guys, I am not expecting it to be spelled out for me, but having a rough idea of what to expect at the interview would be a huge boost. Thank you.
  3. Essex Senior Interview

    Hi guys, Anyone else currently part of the recruitment process for Essex Police? I'm not sure what is going on. I passed my assessment and awaiting the senior interview stage, but have heard nothing from recruitment in 2 months at the time of this post. Have I perhaps missed something? Does my current situation resonate with anyone else? Is continued patience all I require? I am a little surprised that no other candidates have taken to this forum to get a feel for how normal this is. I'm usually the one reading about someone else's concerns and being comforted by the fact that I'm not alone. At the very least, I hope my post might comfort somebody else out there who is also waiting.
  4. Hi all I have my final local interview for West Mercia Police next month and was hoping for some advice on what they may ask or any other Pearls anyone can offer. Thanks All
  5. Good Morning All, New poster here. I am a young postgrad of Forensic Science, I am currently doing some research for a personal project and I was wondering if anyone here would be able to assist me? I am basically trying to find out if there is a standard set of equipment for police in regards to Interviews, if so what is that standard? I understand that a lot of the equipment used by UK constabularies are standardised (Uniform, Kit Belts etc.) but there appears to be no information about police interviews. I understand that there may be no informationa publically as the forces do not wish the public to know what kit there is, the other possibility is that there is no standard. If anyone would be able to assist me on this, that would be fantastic, Thanks
  6. I have my final interview for a job as Communications Officer tomorrow and want to have some qustions to ask the panel to stand out and show my interest. Not sure what to ask though. I know I want to ask what the most difficult part of policing the Thames Valley area is but am at a loss apart from that. Any ideas would be appreciated!
