    Special Sergeants Exam

    This has pretty much just hit the nail on the head. I get that some people want more responsibility but ultimately it would be a waste for the force as you wouldn't do enough hours to condone the amount of training etc required. A senior section officer is still fairly prestigious at least where I'm based so many people would just aspire to that. Without wishing to sound facetious if you want to have the responsibility of being a sergeant why not just actually become and officer and be a sergeant.

    Best Pictures Of Police Cars

    I'm a big fan of the Jaguar F-Pace at the minute although we don't yet have it in my force which is a little disappointing. I also love the BMW RT1200 police bikes and it's my dream to one day ride one.
  4. Hi Adz, I love your blogs on you becoming a special constable, and I am really intersted in becoming one myself!!

    MerseyLLB, just to check are you speaking about Royal Military Police as I'm referring to Ministry Of Defence Police, which is a totally different role? Hope you had a good christmas everyone! Adam

    Admittedly this post is from 2011 but: http://www.policespecials.com/forum/index.php/topic/121350-btp-afo-for-transferees/ "want to transfer to be AFO as suspected they can't fill the internal slots! CNC / MDP will not be considered ( section 2 of info pack )"

    Thanks for the clarification chaps. Just a further question, would this also be the same for MDP officers? Just to clarify, I have no intention of doing this I just wanted to know as it's an interesting question. Thanks again.

    Ministry Of Defence Police

    No problem. Thanks for clarification.

    Ministry Of Defence Police

    No worries, seems strane given you have the Civil Nuclear Constabulary on there but fair play.
  12. Hi, I'm just wondering why it is Ministry Of Defence Police is not shown under force specific? I note they have now restarted recruitment and it may be beneficial to have a page to it? Thanks

    Hi guys, I'm hoping you can clarify something for me. If I was to join the CNC and spend 2-3 years in the service and then decided I wanted to move to say a local force. How would that work, would I have to reattend and do probation with that force given I wouldn't be up to date with local laws? Also what would happen with my firearms qualification? Hope you can help! Thanks.

    Hi Neptune1. Just wanted to say thank you for a fantastic insight into the role and what to expect with recruitment. I have recently written to HR regarding applying and I'm hoping to get back an application form. You've certainly helped make my mind up for me! Thanks again mate Adam Adz5765

    Call handling: typing test

    I'm a call handler with West Yorkshire Police, I guess the best thing to do is relax like everyone has said. As long as you record exactly what is being said and take your time you will be fine. It's just a demonstration of how quickly and accurately you can type. I think I recall making a few little mistakes in mine but still managed to pass. My test consisted of being sat in a room next to a computer, I was read a statement that I had to type. If I got any words wrong then I was marked down a word per minute. If you passed the test then you went on to interview. Any questions I'll try to help as best I can.
