    Hello everyone

    I'm sure there are various threads that could help me with this but I have a few questions so I thought I would put them all in once place.

    I put an application in for the police recently to join as a police officer. I just wondered if anyone has done the same thing recently or is thinking of doing it and knows lots about it.

    My questions are:
    1. Does anyone know roughly how long it will take to hear back from them, and then how long the application process takes assuming they are interested in you?

    2. How well prepared do you have to be? I've been researching a bit about the police in general, my local Police and Crime Commissioner and information about the area that I would be working in. Is this necessary or am I just wasting my time?

    3. Has anyone undergone the application process and can tell me/anyone else interested how hard it is and what it really involves?

    I appreciate that not many people may know the answer to these questions but if you are in a similar place as me then send me a message and it would be good to talk to someone interested in going down the same path as me.

    Have a good weekend
