Went to the London afternoon one, really informative, deputy commissioner was present but no police minister. Was really good to chat to serving officers who have made the transition

I know that to be a detective for example, you need to be a citizen, which takes at least 4 years from having PR. So who knows if other specialisms, also have that requirement for access to more sensitive stuff, I guess like how some people here are DV vetted but normal officers aren't? just a thought.

If you’re in a specialist role and want to get back to one as soon as possible reconsider your plans as you may end up very unhappy. If you’re coming for a change of lifestyle and work is secondary, you will be very happy.

Just been to recruitment event . Very interesting , the one thing I think officers need to figure out with a decent length of service would be pension .I've got 20 years in . Has anyone had any financial advice about the UK pension and what would happen to it ? I think up to a certain amount in pension would not make much of a difference

I’m not in the police Pension but I’ve heard a few people with similar service to you pull out due to the fact that your uk police pension scheme is deferred until 67. I think that’s what I read. The couple of people I know who’ve pulled out done so due to having to work an extra 10 years to what they’d planned here.

I dud hear that , I think I'll have to ring up and get advice. Probably why they were saying they were looking for people between 3 to 7 years. No skin in the game so to speak. Easy to dip out of UK to transfer
