  • Are we thinking end of October?




  • Hopefully, would have thought maybe open beginning of October?




  • If it follows the same trend as last year it could be late to end October until applications open.

    How many do you think they’ll be looking for in the upcoming campaign?




  • I'm trying to work out how long I have to get in shape for this fitness test! It's difficult to say I understand especially with some people with dates to start gv and some just getting dates for it. Trying to average a time scale :-)

    Just start now. Then stay fit.

  • Second go at this, fell at the AC by a mark, not this time.




  • Reports on the news says that catholic numbers joining the police is down. Worryingly there is a lot of calls for 50/50 to be returned, what do you guys think of this ?

    PSNI is 66.61% protestant, 29.45% female. Ans that's after a decade of 50:50,

    To be perfectly honest they need bodies, and the best bodies regardless of ethincity, community background, gender, sexuality and political belief.

    I do not think the PSNI really care what your community background is.

    No other public sector.body in NI cares so why should the police?




  • I can’t see 50/50 being returned. The dissident threat has to be curtailed before they could consider a move back to that. I genuinely believe that the majority of Catholics no longer see the PSNI as a ‘Protestant police force’, they aren’t joining because they would be the primary targets.




  • so this campiagn isnt happening anymore?

    Bye troll




  • Does anyone know if the IST has any maths questions? I've read it's verbal reasoning and situational judgement but just want to try and prepare for it (as much as I can lol) thanks

    Nope, there is no maths questions. Just the SJT and verbal reasoning. There is loads of practice tests online that will help prepare you.




  • 1810 is a go kids




  • Just seen, 1st of October and then we're live. When do you think the IST will commence ? Late October?




  • Great news!




  • To be fair I was a little worried with the whole stormont mess as to wether they would have money to recruit and how they’ll get the budget sorted for next year




  • Just seen, 1st of October and then we're live. When do you think the IST will commence ? Late October?

    I believe the recruitment advertisement will be a month long, then processing the applications so it could be late November before they send out the IST. Looking back on last years email it was 29th November and it ran for 3 weeks but then the system had a meltdown so it was extended,
    hopefully this will not happen this time around

    Maybe be a bit sooner if it’s opening October 1st? Since last year opened October 23rd-nov 10th

    I think they want to mirror last campaign.

    I also dont think they will fast track this year as they wont need to




  • Okay guys, welcome back to those returning and welcome to any new applicants! Can’t believe it was a year ago already since the last one but this is our year! Banterbus, who else was unsuccessful last campaign and is returning? I was us all back in here again because I had great fun last year with everyone on here and want the same again this year

    Still on 1710 Ml but opting for another helping of waiting, wondering, frantically checking emails and endless visits to the psni website :) bring on round 2!!

    Hey lockie, welcome back! I was also around the boards last year but unfortunately just fell short of a pass at the AC. Here’s hoping this year is our year. Good luck to everyone that is wishing to apply in the upcoming campaign.

  • Round 5 for me guys, please be the year




  • Hey everyone! This is our year! I can’t remember when I last spoke to everyone but in less than 2 weeks I get a contract from the MDP and still am completely undecided if it is actually something I want to pursue
