    Fitness Test

    Hi, Can anyone offer any advice on the push/pull part of the fitness test? Im really worried about it because i'm pretty tall and slim, 6ft and about 11stone. The bleep test shouldn't be too much of a problem. im going to be going to the gym but my test is in about 4 weeks and i'm just wondering how hard it actually is? thanks,

    Passing Vetting

    Hi, Does anyone know if it's possible to pass vetting with 3 points on your licence? Its so annoying because I got caught when driving through roadworks which weren't even there at the time and the speed limit had been changed. I saw the speed camera as well and didn't even think I was speeding. This was about 3 months ago. Other than that my record is completely clean, I have a good credit score and my family have no past convictions either. Will I definitely fail vetting as i'm convinced I will? thanks,

    Specials Assessment

    Hi, I recently had my specials assessment day and was asked a scenario question, I was wondering what anyone else would have put. The scenario was something along the lines of: You have just gone out on patrol and your sergeant has asked you to attend a busy junction where the traffic lights are not working. However a member of the public approaches you and makes you aware of an elderly lady walking around in her nightwear. You can't get ahold of your sergeant and there are no other officers or PCSOs to help. Which scene do you attend first and why? I said I would attend the vulnerable lady as there is a much higher risk to life as she may not be aware of her own actions. Qualified drivers would be expected to deal with broken traffic lights in the correct manor by giving way and proceeding with caution. I also stated that it would be better to deal with that situation first as if you were to attend the traffic lights, the elderly lady may then hurt herself/walk into the road and cause an RTC which would then mean i'd have to leave the traffic light scene anyway. I also said that although the sergeant wanted me to attend that scene I tried to contact him and made a decision based on the information provided. Im sure there are rights and wrongs for answering it both ways but what is the correct answer if there is one? or what would you have said? Thanks!
  4. thats quite an amazing story! Ive always thought of it as a snippet of what its really like! does anyone on this topic have any experience as an armed officer or Dog handler, I am really focused on working towards those areas and was just wondering what peoples views are on them.
  5. Do you think if when Im 18 I applied to become a special I would be way more likely to be accepted compared to if I was to apply for a paid officer role. Im sure the answer is probably yes.
  6. Just out of curiosity how realistic are the police documentaries on tv? By no means do they make me want to join but Ive wondered if programmes like police interceptors or traffic cops are an accurate representation of real policing.
  7. Pigman, does a degree have a large impact(if any) on a police officers career?
  8. Thanks for the advice its helpful I will probably finish my A-levels then go on to study the CKP required by my county to join and then go from there.
  9. I dont tend to have any problems spelling when writing, I decided to study english at A-level because I understand that there can be a lot of writing/spelling etc.
  10. Its hard to explain, its half the size of a huge tesco but probably 3x the size of an express store to be precise.
  11. I don't work at Tesco as a supervisor but I have worked at this job for almost 2 years, but I doubt they would hire someone as young as me to be a supervisor at their stores! however I'm sure the job is the same but yes it can at times be extremely hectic when the tills crash or someone can't speak english and the queues go up the isles and I'm alone to try and get everything going! even the managers are 19 so its common for young people to do the jobs where I work. Pigman, What is the required age for a supervisor at Tesco It must be 18+?
  12. yes weird isn't it! but its a family run supermarket and people are promoted extremely quickly! thats if you do the job right.
  13. I would have to agree, many people seem to have different opinions based on their experience, but I feel like I would definitely enjoy it everyday and I'm not naive I understand theres going to be days when it isn't great but thats like most jobs, I have a job at a busy supermarket as a supervisor while I'm studying so would you consider that to be dealing with unhappy customers? should I just stay at it for a few years longer to gain more experience? and apply when around 19/20?
  14. This is the pay for my county, is this a good pay scale compared with other forces, sorry I couldn't insert the screenshot. http://www.surrey.police.uk/careers/police-officers/police-constable-pay-scale http://www.surrey.police.uk/careers/police-officers/police-constable-pay-scale
