  2. Anyone starting soon with BTP? Thought it might be good to reach out and see if anyone is in the same boat :-) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Would love to work in Glasgow but Perth is my first choice due to my current circumstances. Aye everyone I spoke to said the same as well! Bigger stations with more officers though so will prob take on the bulk of the new intake. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Dunno how they will so it but I'm sure we will get there :-) I've put down for Perth. What about you? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Well it was Tayside followed by PolisScot! ... Here's hoping - the last bit before its all done. Think they have a date everything has to be done by then they will start reviewing postings and college dates. Seemed to be a lot of people at the fitness test ...

    BTP Scotland Telephone Interview

    Hello all! I am also an applicant for Student Officer 2016 intake. Passed shortlisting as well and the telephone interview came as a bit of a surprise. Got mine tomorrow. Unfortunately due to work i was unable to attend the recruitment event last month so feel like I am a bit on the back foot. Good luck :-)

    I did not say anything about buying them in a shop. As what Model2003 said try them on then order them online. Seems like the common sense response to me. No point ordering them online just to send them back. I would personally wait a bit your into the training before buying them. I have not found army surplus stores to be the best. I would look in the likes of Slaters or even Sports World in the Overgate where I got my new pair (Reasonable price too).

    Go to the shop and try them on.

    Civi Ride along?

    I have known Street Crime UK etc go out with Tayside before so I don't see why not. After all it is a project for another emergency service. I would contact the Inspector of the Crime Reduction Unit and explain what you propose to do as it is a bit more than a civvy ride along. Unfortunately none of us are qualified to give a definitive answer. Best of luck with your project.

    Think it is best to speak to recruiting and ask. If it has been paid then I don't seeing it being as much of a problem for you, but you will need to check as only a recruitment officer can give you a difinative answer. Best of luck Ross

    First shift

    Wouldnt worry too much, there will be loads of cops and stewards there. If I remember correctly it is Tanadice street rather than the Sandeman Street side of the stadium.

    Phone up the station and let them know when you want to go out is the easist way to do things. Ross
