    Getting There
  1. Custody sergeant

    Detention officers wear blue t-shirts, the custody Sargent will over see everything they do, and will authorize the detention.
  2. Attestation - the oath

    Essex specials have to say the attestation oath, individually, on stage, in-front of everyone, guests, senior officers, special and regular, and is said towards a Justice of the peace, who signs your attestation certificate, and is exactly like dragonfly quoted.
  3. Anyone have their induction on 31st October?

    I have Responder's with out the side zip, There around the £40 mark, I like them. Took some time to brake in thought (for me) Did a 4+ hour foot patrol in them last week end no problem. The Sergeants office is on the second floor......like being sent to the Headmasters office!!!!!!!!!
  4. Anyone have their induction on 31st October?

    Go to the website www.patrolstore.com for your boots, excellent service, trouble is of course you can't try them on first. They use your picture from your warrant card for your EPSA card which will be done mid to end of the course (was for me) with no boots by then you will be taken upstairs to the 2nd floor..........................
  5. Anyone have their induction on 31st October?

    You need your boots from day one or when you are told to come in uniform, Revise and study non-stop !!! I was doing 60-70 hours in my paid job and studying on the train home (40 mins) every night, I would have considered my self academically not very good, but I passed everything with 85%-90% pass marks. My trick was to write out in a plain book all the info given on the hand outs, which meant I could just whip it out on the train instead of having piles of A4 hand outs getting crushed in my bag, plus by writing it out it went in more, So you would write the offence, the date and act it comes from and the definition of the offence which is the most important part.
  6. Anyone have their induction on 31st October?

    Yes, I am with Essex Police, My post sounds a little negative, which was not what i intended . People do fail, and it's really tuff seeing your Class mates leave, especially as my intake got on so well together.
  7. Anyone have their induction on 31st October?

    Good luck everyone, I was in your shoes about 1 year ago, it's a long journey that's worth it at the end, just remember your not in untill you have your attestation and your warrent card, fail 3 exams out of the six on the collage course and your out.........
  8. Essex Police Twitter Accounts

    Any Twitter accounts for Chelmsford based specials? I will be going there in just over a months time.......

    Spandex at the ready (I actually have loads) Thanks Steve, thought it could be a nice addition to my C.V. if I had some sort of cert in first aid, as I have never done any first aid training before.
