Are you more likely to be accepted as a Special as opposed to full time?

Recommended Posts

For me i Would say the process of becoming a Special was a lot easier than becoming a regular officer (hence I am still trying to become one). However it all depends if you have the relevant experience and are able to answer the interview questions well enough to pass the interview.

 

I believe people should have to be Specials before they become regular officers anyway, It teaches you more about what the role is about and it's not everything you see on Tv, and by been a special you can see if they role of a regular officer would be ideal for you.

They are looking for the same qualities in both.

The assessment days are slightly different because the assessment day for regulars is a national standard which every home office force must run, where as they tend to do their own thing for specials.

But as I said before they want the same qualities in both, so if you can pass one you have a good chance of passing the other.

I've done specials, police staff and regulars and they were all very similar, looking for the same skills and qualities.
