Tbh everyone on the day was pretty quiet which I found a bit unusual bt still I enjoyed it tons,can't wait for next week!!! ......Even though I got pulled up for not having polished shoes bt thy were better than the random pairs of grey and yellow coloured slip ons that some chicks had on lol x
its not unusual tbh, in our intake alot of people didnt come out of their shells until OST... as thats a real bonding experience, particularly if you do the week one
i'm sure you and others wouldn't be silly enough, and no doubt it was expressly explained to you during your first day of training, just in case (although no doubt everyone will be sick of all my advice already)...
- do not post any pics of you in uniform to social networking sites
- put any reference e.g. changing your employment to "Police Officer at Strathclyde Police" on your facebook twitter, etc. profile
- most importantly don't leave your kit bag in the boot of your car all week till the next training day
again not that you would, but for example there have been cases on this forum where specials in training from forces down in England have had "trainee police officer" on their twitter, and had to be told what im telling you after the fact after other forum members noticed it, etc. I can only advise you not to do that in the strongest possible terms!
well i warned you in the advice post to bull your boots/shoes, so you have no excuses
but yellow shoes? really?
glad you enjoyed your first day though, the second week is much less hectic and thus more fun!
