A year ago I was 17 and I got myself involved with the wrong people who basically used me and we committed what was described as 'violent robbery' where a victim got injured by my car after his phone was snatched and I ended up getting the most trouble by having serious charges such as GBH with intent, dangerous driving and theft on me but all charges ended up getting dismissed at a youth court. I am now 19 and would like to maybe join the police later in life but even though I don't have a criminal record as I asked the officer that worked on my case the police most likely still has my fingerprints and mugshot and record of me on their system. I researched and found out that the police recruits people with minor offences however mine was quite serious. So will I always be a criminal in the police's eyes and would this not allow me to join the police?
Hi, I am a single mum to a 7yr old boy. I have just passed my final interview and fitness test and have my medical, which i'm pretty positive i'll pass. I reckon i'll be starting my training in Feb. My question is, do you think it's feasible for me as a single mum to become a police officer? my parents are close by and are happy to help whenever necessary. Do you think i'd ever get to spend any time with my son? Can anyone tell me what the shifts patterns are like after the first 20 wks training? And do i get any say in the shifts i get? I don't have any friends or anyone to talk to who would know, and the recruitment dept weren't able to be very specific, so anyone who has any advice or recent experiences they'd like to share, I'd be massively grateful!!! I so want to do it as it's been a life long dream, but i dont want to never get to spend any time with my son, but think i'd regret it if i didn't take this opportunity! confused! Thanks in advance!!
