Hey everyone, I was hoping to get a little help. I'm preparing for my day 2 with the Met later this month after going through a long (but successful!) application process, but I need a little help! I'm not from London and though I've tried to get some answers from recruiting and HR on the issue of borough selection they still haven't got back to me and seeing how I need to hand my choices in soon I thought I'd ask you all A few of the things I'm wondering are: Are officers expected to live in their boroughs? How often are officers moved from their borough during their career? One of my main concerns is are certain specialist units (CID, firearms, counter terror, etc) based primarily/have a larger operation in a certain borough than compared to others? In what ways will my career be influenced by my borough selection? I was hoping the Met would provide some of this information to new recruits who don't already live in the city but so far nothing has been said. I now have to try and navigate the flat renting market during these extortionate times but need to find out where I should work first! Any help or advice you could give me would be really appreciated.
