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 did get that email and it appears an April start onwards will be the case. The email also did say someone should contact us over the coming weeks but no contact yet.

I’ve seen on another thread that DC-DHEP intakes have begun and start dates have been handed out.

Hello, I've applied for the detective graduate entry and did my online assessment 3 weeks ago.

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.

Makes sense.
Cheers for the advice.

I do wonder if April is still happening. The radio silence is getting a bit unnerving. I passed back in 2019 and was due to start in Sep, for obvious reasons that did not happen.

It would be great to hear if anyone has had the call as of yet.

It is still happening. There’re PC DHEP applicants who’ve received start dates this month through to May.

That is good news. Will continue to wait in anticipation. Have been queued to start since last March.

You should check out Reddit, there’s an actual forum for police officers on there with factual information that you will find useful.

Has anyone else still heard nothing regarding start dates for this route or is it just me?

Still radio silence here mate. Been queued since last March was supposed to start last September. Now waiting. I will let you know once I get a date if that helps.

Still silence for me for Met PC-DHEP.

I’ve seen them hand out start dates for IPLDP in June and July.

Currently undergoing second vetting - 14th week now waiting .

Yes. it is all a bit frustrating. I have been set to go since last March (over 13 months now) with nothing but radio silence. Went through a renewed vetting back in Jan. Will let you know if I hear anything as at least you will know the program is still alive.

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

I don’t think we will start (if we start) until July or September and by that time who knows what will happen. We can sit and wait around and be positive or we can take action into our own hands and start looking at other careers. I’m not going to sit around waiting for a job we should’ve started 8/9 months ago.
