I haven't lived there for a while but its expensive, i wouldn't like to do it on one salary if you are a family, but if you both work then it would be ok, or obviously if you are single then it won't be an issue.

Has anyone else applied for the Caymans? I've just had an email out the blue about an interview.

I've got an interview mate. Need to set up a Skype account first. Didn't really expect to get one to be honest. Still not sure if I'd take the job so will need to do some research.

Had two interviews over the years but never got accepted. Pathetic questions trying to find flaws in your integrity. Been a cop for 21 years but counts for naught with that lot

What sort of questions were they asking and how long ago was your interview?

Are there any serving uk police officers in the caymans that can give an insight into the role?

There have been several threads over the years from guys who have served there - run back through the forum and you should find some

For example - Royal Cayman Islands Police Vacancies

I think I was the first W/Police Constable to be recruited in Cayman from the UK in the RCIP back in 1980. It was the best time of my life! Biggest mistake I made was returning to the UK. You will love it. However, it is expensive to live there. You do need two wages unless you are single.

Hi Guys,

What length/level of service do you need within a UK Force?

I am only a special at the moment but would love to consider this whilst I'm young in a few years time. I assume they won't take special experience into consideration for obvious reasons but was wondering how many years they are looking for?

Shame I couldn't go start over there as a 'local' as I guess with british passport you have infinite right to work there but they need you to have been a permanent resident for years!


Thanks,
Mark.

I'm so annoyed I only noticed this post a couple days ago and the link was already taken down!

I emailed them directly but was told I was too late and they could only hold my application(including references from current superiors) on file, I obviously decided against doing that as I don't want my superiors knowing too much about my intentions!

Anyone any idea how often they advertise these positions?

Regards,
