  1. February 2016 intake

    Hey @Tech49, Did you get on the new intake of training?
  2. Radio earpiece

    Out of interest, how long have you been in? When I had my OH medical they noted the same thing with my hearing. I hated the standard black one, seemed too bulky for me so moved to the acoustic tube. Now at first I did struggle to hear things clearly but after a few shifts my ear got accustomed to it and now I have no problem. Maybe after some time your ear will "tune in" with it?
  3. Accompanied Patrol Phase?

    Accompanied patrol sounds like our Operational Phase. For me this means I can go out with any regular or Special who is IP.
  4. SCs and Regs

    I've been a Special for about 6 months and my section are massively pro-special. My Response squad even more so. There can be us and them but as long as you work hard, get stuck in and don't shy away you'll be fine. Always be honest, if you don't know something then just ask. They will never criticize you for asking a question, you're constantly learning as you don't do as many hours as they do.
  5. February 2016 intake

    Hey Lauren!! Sucks to hear this. I'm a Special with DP (Attested last year). I would say ping me a PM and I'l give you an idea on what you can spend your time on going over but can't see a messaging facility on here... You could always email HR and ask if they could do a group email so you get people's email addresses so you can all get to know each other etc...?
  6. NCALT + Mac = pain!

    I've done all my NCALT training on my Macbook using Safari and the latest OS. At first it wouldn't work but then I went into settings and allowed popups. This solved the problem for me. Never had an issue since then apart from how long they take...
  7. I did a lot of training prior to my application and when it came to my medical I explained the situation. I took a variety of supplements (Including grenade) over the past 3months. She couldn't fit it all in the box No issues though.
  8. I'm currently going through my SC training (Attest in less than a month) We have been told that we hold the office of constable and are expected to uphold our oath where practicable. But remember the below: Your personal safety - Can you honestly resolve the situation without your PPE. Could it quickly turn nasty etc? Have you been drinking. Have you got anyone to back you up, how far is the cavalry etc As soon as you whip your warrant card out you put yourself on duty and bound by the laws that govern this. Not in uniform etc. Just because you say you're a SC doesn't mean the public have to believe you You need to be zooming round your NDM. Remember, like others have stated. If you don't get involved and you can justify why you didn't then that is acceptable. Become the best witness.
  9. Heyy

    Hey guys!! I am a member of Police Community and thought it prudent to sign up here too as it's got some good info. Currently finishing Phase one of Specials training and due to start Phase 2 (Practicals) at the end of the month Cheers
