Met Police DHEP RecruitmentWatch this thread
Hi, I did both my assessment centres in January 2020 and passed my vetting in April 2020 and was in the original pool of PC applicants transferred onto the DHEP route.I received an email a few weeks ago (in my spam inbox) saying that they are not starting PC DHEP recruitment until April but that they were confident that it would be April. I also spoke to someone from the recruitment company in October and he said that it would realistically probably take a few months from when they contact you with a start date to you actually starting due to paperwork, payroll etc. because of the amount of people joining. I hope you did get that email but it looks like it’s going to be April/May at the earliest!
I’ve seen on another thread that DC-DHEP intakes have begun and start dates have been handed out.
Haven't had my results yet others I've seen who did the assessment few days earlier got their results within 10 working days.
Any ideas on the average waiting times for results??
We aren't recruiting as quickly because of Covid right now. Standard entry officers will likely be delayed until 05/20 and I imagine direct entry routes are similar. Use the time for learning your legislation if you can.
Cheers for the advice.
It would be great to hear if anyone has had the call as of yet.
I’ve seen them hand out start dates for IPLDP in June and July.
Currently undergoing second vetting - 14th week now waiting .
Everything passed is showing on the website vetting included just seems like a waiting game. I was told before they didn’t start recruitment in April and it got cancelled due to restrictions and were waiting till may for it most likely I should expect June but they don’t know exactly what as they are not the offers team. Was told to sit and wait annoying I can’t plan my life whilst I keep waiting
