Hey there guys!
I was basically looking for anyone else who is currently sharing my plight.
I applied to be a police officer for Kent police back in thier Oct 2008 recruitment opening. I was notified in January 2009 that I had passed paper sift be due to the volume of applications they would not be able to tell me a date for assessment. I was then told I could expect an assessment possibly during summer 2009. That quickly passed and the next correspondance told me i could possibly expect it May 2010! Surprise, surprise I got another letter now just stating i can expect it "summer 2010".
After looking at a few other forums, I'm beginning to feel like the only one who's waiting this long in this particular intake. Am i likely to face massive waits between all of the other recruiment stages if i get through? Is anone else who applied at the same time experiencing this problem?
I have a feeling that this will turn into a good 3-4year application. Let that be a warning to anyone thinking of applying to Kent police, you've gotta be in it for the long run!
EDIT: sorry guys, posted this in the wrong place to begin with (public sector)

Hey-I was reading this police forum once about people who are in your situation, or wanting to apply and what not and i gatherered that it can be a long process between each of the stages...one dude said he was going to have to re-do his fitness test as it had expired!
