Hi there-

from what you have said so far you are doing all the right things to build up you CV and help you stand out from the other candidates. For example, attending clubs and keeping yourself fit will go a long way to supporting your application.

The biggest thing you can do to increase you chance of success is to learn the core competencies of a police officer. If you do not demonstrate these core competencies at every stage of the recruitment process then you are likely to fail. Currently 65,000 people apply to be police officers in the UK every year and only 6,000 are successful.

The core competencies are the key characterstics of a police officer and you need to show the recruitmet team that have these qualities are are as follows:

1.Community and Customer Focus
2. Effective communication
3. Personal Responsibility
4. Problem Solving
5. Resilience
6. Respect for Race and Diversity - this one is key - get a D grade for this an any point during the whole application process and its an automatic fail - and wait for 6 months before you can appy again
7. Teamworking

You need to demonstrate these during:

- the application form stage
- the role plays
- the written tests
- the final interview

for help with preparing for the recruitment process check out www.police-recruitment.co.uk - it helped me when i applied to join a couple of years ago and has some great insider tips
