Having my doubts now though that I’ve got through given the 7 week wait and counting.
TJF wherever you go. To expect anything more will lead to disappointment!

I did my interview coming up to 3 weeks ago, so I believe its another 3 weeks or so till I hear, but lets remember they have got bout 900 applicants, they can be forgiven if they go over that. The way i see it is, they do need to chose the right people, and based on what is said in interviews and and each persons individual circumstances, they may put some back a bit to progress ones that would be in a better position to transition early. I personally couldn't move till early next year, so i have time.
I too have 14 years in and currently in a specialist department, but spent 12.5 years on response, quite happy to go back to it. I moved for a few reasons, but I have been police not just in the UK for a long time, I still love to catch baddies and I keep myself in shape to out run the criminals and the new recruits :-)
They have opened the recruiting to include up to the age of 55 and the minimum years in the job is 3 years, I can understand why they would prefer 3 to 7 years but I am sure they will welcome those with more experience as it benefits them. We have the knowledge how to police, we have the verbal and mental skills to deal with what comes our way, so I am sure they not going to dismiss you because of this advantage.
Remember also , that cost , visa and fear will deter and exclude many.

Good luck and stay positive people.........
They don’t care about your experience. It’s all about maximising bums on seats for the lowest $

New here like most I assume.

I completed the psychometric test online and the games that followed. Do we know if the games thing is marked or assessed? Mine didn’t go as planned with an update on Chrome halfway through.

Fitness to do and then hopefully and interview.

Has anyone been to the conference they’re holding? Was it worth going?

I have had that amazing email to say I have passed the panel stage.... The email came with the next steps... P58 form to fill in, a medical, I think my GP will go into a melt down when they see it.

Has anyone got any info on this, did you go private?

Congrats on passing the interview stage. The p58 most probably can't be done by your GP, myGP held the form for over a week before telling me they can't do it!

Spire hospitals seem able to do it, I ended up going to a private GP who could do it quicker in Winchester but that cost about 350 and then extra for the additional test.

Re the medical, I don't know if this is covered in any of your paperwork, but check out whether the police medical will also cover you for the visa medical. The usual PR visa medical can only be done in about 6 places in the UK, costs probably 400 upwards these days, and also often involves travel/hotels because of the distances involved. I honestly don't know if Immigration will accept the WAPOL medicals in lieu of this.

Great minds think alike, I was just about to type the same thing! No point in paying for two medicals, it would be better to have an immigration medical done if possible and then use that twice.

I got my email today too to say I’ve been successful at the review panel and onto final checks.

I have a private GP lined up for my P58 medical in Liverpool.

mossy1986 nice one. I didn't know what the medical form would consist of, certainly not that in depth for a GP to do.

If you have gone private have you had to get your medical details from the GP first?
