    Thought you lot would appreciate this :D


    Ever wondered what it’s like to spend 24 hours in the RUC? Watch this 1976 recruitment film and decide if this was the career for you.

    It’s an early start and a long day ahead, from the criminal to the civic there’s plenty to keep the Royal Ulster Constabulary busy. Despite the historical context of this recruitment film there are few hints of ‘the Troubles’. Instead join trainees as they learn to testify in court and read pub landlords their rights in role-playing exercises. As the sun sets, discover there is more than one way for the blue flashing lights to keep young people off the streets and out of trouble.

    Loved the guy with the RUC disco t shirt :D

    Everything typed out in triplicate, calling in from phone boxes and the best of hi vis gear :)

    No Google maps either; your local knowledge would be tested daily!

    I know that there's role plays in GV, but can anyone confirm or deny that they are the same as in the video? Talk about close quarters lol room full of your colleagues and training officers that close.

    Yes, some practical assessments will be done in small rooms. You'll never learn if you don't get to experience the reality of it!

    I think I applied in that campaign lol.
    Back when you called up a number and EVERYTHING was done by post. I guess external emails still posed a threat. Even your PCA result was posted out; not given on the day :eek:
