I've always wanted to join the police, but because of issues went to uni instead, then while there someone was talking about the specials.
So i thought to myself that is good for me, let me have a go! Well went through all the info found out about this site, then tried phoned up for an application form to join. got put off by all the paperwork, didn't have the time to go through all that stuff gave up.
Anyways few years since now got a job have more or less life going ok and feel something is missing and i thought about the specials again.
At the begining of the year saw a recruitment event but was unable to attend as i was outside country, saw another one missed that one too, as i travel a bit. But last month saw an event and i decided this time I'll make sure I'll go this time.
Well it was the best thing i did, it made me even more to apply to the specials.
Applied online about a few weeks ago, got confirmation of application and then last week got letter to say i passed to the role play and paper shift.
Got a seminar with the met recruitment team at the end of this month to help with the day, and then it's all me to make it through.
Although recently I've had some people question me about why i want to join! With all the situation right now and how there is no financial gain. I don't look at it like that, i see it as giving something worthwhile and gaining an amzing experience.
Anyways will post some later working through a nigh shift now getting too tired to write.
