  1. Does anyone know how long it takes roughly for an appeal to come back?
  2. Hello all, I have now appealed so just a waiting game now... fingers crossed!! I can't see it being anything that I've done as never been in trouble with the police and so on but I know my older brothers arent angels so without blaming anyone it could be one of them, or it could be something totally different. I wish they'd actually tell you what you failed on though :/
  3. Hello there, I received an email from resourcing at Gloucestershire Constabulary yesterday notifying me that i have failed my security clearance. I have now appealed against this but if it does come back and i still have no luck is it possible to apply for another force rather than having to wait six months to apply for Gloucestershire again? Really devastated that I have failed the security clearance and i feel as though my childhood dream of becoming a police officer has been shattered after all the hard work put in to get this far. Sorry to babble on and I wish everyone else the very best with their progress within the recruitment stages. Duainep
  4. What would you lot recommend putting in an appeal? I'll write one tomorrow at work I think, worth a try I suppose!
  5. Absolutely gutted! Worst feeling ever! The way I'm feeling at the moment I'm not going to bother trying again because if I don't get it next time it will just frustrate me more I think - i disclosed everything, never been in trouble with the police or nothing so really don't know what went wrong ? sending a letter to the main vetting manager to see if I can have any information on why I was denied
  6. Just heard back from Gloucestershire Constabulary and they have informed me I have failed my vetting! I've worked so hard for this and to say the least I am absolutely gutted! ? guess that's the end of the road for me ?

    Well done for getting so far mate, I wonder why they make you fitness test and so on before vetting has came back... because If someone fails the security clearance then it's just a waste of time? Strange but can't wait for the email saying I've passed vetting! (Fingers crossed I do pass) ☺
