Hi,

I have got an interview for the detective pathway. It seems to me it’s online for now! It’s an online assessment, at least for the first part!

What qualifications do you need or what courses do you need to take to become a detective?

Application for direct entry detective constable is literally open right now. Why don't you have a look at their website for more information? Searching and finding information you're looking for is literally at the core of what a detective do....

No proof of evidence asked it was a video interview pre recorded with briefing and In tray
I see. I thought it would have been live interview and the in tray exercise would have come later on. Did you get your results back? I'm so nervous about it all! Thank you for the reply.

Hi all. Having just been through the lengthy process for applying for a similar scheme, I found a useful FB page that helps with police recruitment. If you're interested you can search 'Bluelight Police Recruitment, Assessment Centre and Career Support Group' on Facebook and request to join.

Best of luck for your applications, I am starting a Detective scheme in a few weeks so let me know if you have any questions

Hi, I’ve applied for the Detective programme. I have my in-force interview on Thursday. I was wondering if you would be able to give me some top tips? What sort of questions did they ask you?

Do you mind me asking how long it took to get your results back from the SEARCH interview. I did mine about 10 days ago and I'm so nervous about it. I dont think I did well but eager to find out my results. Good luck in your next stage! X

I only done the video interview I cam gibe some guidance if you like tips and do s and don't
Oh, I did all 4 stages.
SJT
Interview
Written exercise
Briefing exercise
And I think once you pass this then we go onto the next stage which is a further DC assessment you sit in a centre. Is that the one you did? I found that the briefing exercise was the hardest.

Hello,
I think its medical followed by vetting and then you get your unconditional offer. So your nearly there! So did not have to do the in force detective assessment then? I thought after passing the day one assessment DC candidates then had to do a further in centre assessment 🤔

Hi- I'm just waiting for result from day one assessment. Have a feeling I didnt pass but fingers crossed. How was the in centre assessment? I hear its quite intense. Good luck for the remainder of the process, it is long indeed. Xx
