    Part 2 - Not The Way to Test

    Why cant forces see that Part 2 testing is not a fair and accurate way of testing ability. In my 20 yrs of service I have seen the standard of supervisors drop dramatically. Why is it that persons with 2 yrs service(or such little service) who have come from and an academic background find it easy to pass part 2. I would like to see more continual assessing similar to probationers replace part 2. 3 months with uniform sergeant and 3 months with detective sergeant. This would give a more accurate assessment of ability and also prevent conflict of interests by having 2 different assessments. How can i stand by and watch supervisors who have no experience make dangerous and poor judgements. I want to be a supervisor and feel that the part 2 will stop me getting there. I have 20 yrs service, 7 yrs in uniform, 6 yrs CID including murder incident rooms, 2 yrs in intelligence, 5 yrs in covert policing and yet i feel that the part 2 works against me. What do you think?
