After years of wanting to become a Police Officer (it was a childhood want), I finally took the plung and enquired as to how to go about this amazing career. I was slightly disheartened when I was told that, unfortunatly the police are not recruiting at this time - though their are a number of Volunteer roles I may be interested in.
So I checked the info on the police websites that I had gathered during my online search for info on joining the police force. Comming across 'Special Constables', I was intrigued so I gathered all the info I could regarding this role - the more I read, the more I liked.
I contacted the relavent depertment and soon received my application form for Special Constables.
Filling in the form was kind of a long process, trying to remember previous address' as I have bounced around a bit. I sent this form off (via Email).
In the mean time, awaiting any correspondence I started to read through the forums here at policespecials.com
I received my success of paper sifting in the begining of November, which content stated I was to await a further letter with a future date for the next Assessment Centre process. Upon reading further on these forums I noticed that I had been too late for a assessment on the 12th and 13th.
I called HR and was told they person I needed to speak with was not available and to call back later next week.
Its now the next week and I will be calling them tomorrow. I hope the next assessment is soon - I can not wait to get started!
