  1. Hi folks, first time poster on here and just looking for a quick bit of advice. I have always had a keen interest in working within the police service. I am due to graduate the summer of 2015 (Finance and Economics). I have been searching around the internet to try and find some information about graduate opportunities within the police service but can't seem to find very much information. I stay just outside Glasgow and so iv checked the police Scotland website, again there doesn't seem to be many specific opportunities regarding graduates. Is this because there are simply no graduate programs or any other jobs specifically designed for graduates ? I have found some information on these types of programs in England and Wales but I just can't seem to find much information regarding police Scotland. If anyone could offer any advice regarding this, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks very much. Jamie.
  2. Applying for police

    Hi, I am a 22 year old male living in Scotland and in full in employment. I have for sometime been wanting to join the police and when I was 18 decided to do a course at college that was all about police life, passing the tests, law ect. At the end of the course I was told I was probably to young to have a realistic chance of being accepted into the police due to my young age. A bit disappointed I decided to go to uni were I got a business degree and now work in marketing. The urge however to join the police and serve my community is still there however. I have also for the past year been doing voluntary work with underprivileged young adults and children which has been hugely rewarding and I have been told recruiters look variably upon this. As I know very little police officers I came to this forum to seek hep. Any advice on what I can do to increase my chances of being accepted would be greatly appreciated and also your own experiences of the job on a daily basis. Thanks guys Craig
  3. Met fitness tests.

    Hi! New to the forum, so I hope I've got this in the right place! Got my day one next week and I'm relatively confident about it, but I'm less so for if I get through and move on to the day two with the fitness tests. The pushing/pulling are fine, but does anyone know how intense the running is? Also, not the smallest person, so are they massively strict if you're a bit on the larger side? Cheers in advance!
