C. Spencer Introduction

Recommended Posts

I've wanted to become a Police Constable since I was about 7 and everything about policing interests me. I have my fair share of reasons why I want to join the Metropolitan Police now but initially, I didn't - it almost feels like a calling. I know it's cheesy but it's true. Additionally, I took interest in SFOs when I was younger and, since then, have a growing interest in the firearms units (namely SC&O19). If this was an interview: That's where I see myself in 5 years.  Again, initially, I didn't have a reason - it just feels like a calling. I was just drawn to it, though I wouldn't mind specialising in any department.

I'm only 18 and I decided to apply straight-away. I was hesitant at first because I don't see many police officers below 20 years of age and assumed it's because the police don't generally look for people THAT young. I have attended the assessment days and, as far as I'm concerned, have passed everything that didn't need investigating (fitness test, etc). I am currently waiting for my vetting now.

I have been spoken to by an officer for playing "knock-knock" when I was about 9 or 10 and it was only at the road-side. Nothing happened. I declared it of course but I doubt I'd fail my vetting because of it. My family have no financial issues or anything like that so I am very confident that I'll be successful. However, It always worries me when I read that people are denied and told they may never, under any circumstances, in any capacity apply for the force again.
