Special for 1 year in Avon and Somerset
SOLAP 90% complete as at 10/11/2016
I'm just hoping the people of Policespecials.com can answer some questions on the Gwent special constabulary as I'm in the process of applying to transfer. I live in Newport but I've been specialing in A&S and I'm now looking at working closer to home as I really feel I'd enjoy it even more if it was local to where I grew up and still live. It's been a year and I still ask for PNC checks and I don't know what street I'm on!
If anyone could answer the below, and maybe a little more, I'd be very very grateful:
Is there a good relationship between the specials and regs in Gwent?
Is the training and support good? (e.g. driving as in A&S a special can with relative ease get onto a compliant stop course)
Do you have the option of just turning up and working a shift with the team when you're free? With A&S you get great autonomy and can single crew and self task.
Do the specials run their own operations frequently?
If you feel like you need to be brutally honest, but not public then please message me
Thanks in advance,
