    Anyone heard anything regarding the "small pool" who would be contacted in the coming days?



  • Registered Users Posts: 54 ✭✭ Elninotdog


    Not a thing here since the email

    it`s so deflating after all this time, optimism is all was have now, our time will come...It has to.



  • Registered Users Posts: 99 ✭✭ lornzeo99


    I reckon the small pool is people who had deferred starting. They will maybe give them the opportunity to go ahead? It’s so deflating getting to this stage and this happening. I presume it will be April until they decide what they will do. If they don’t get the funding they expected hopefully they will follow through with some sort of recruitment…

    At the end of the day, they are not going to have wasted millions on another recruitment campaign just to scrap it all. We will all get in eventually if appointable. Dept of Justice sent back around 45million to Westminster last financial year, the money is there, I think it was just about showing there would be a serious issue if funding wasn’t allocated. They need more officers on the ground and that’s the bottom line

    They surely have funding for the new campaign of 400 officers. If all else fails they should surely be able to use this. I spoke to local MLA about how it has been handled. He said it will be debated at the next board meeting which is next week.

    Yeh Naomi Long has said on Twitter they will be voting against it. Not only did they hand 45 million back they have just handed even more back this year too. The fact they are still running the 2021 campaign and putting money in to that gives some hope that they are surely going to recruit. Just crap our jobs are being used to play politics and the fact this has been TWO years

    By the time we actually start training, at this rate it will have been 2 and a half years from initial application to commencing training. The same length of time it takes to complete said training and probation including a degree! I know Covid caused much of the issues and finances are always an issue but the way money gets moved around. We never have enough but 10's of millions get sent back due to the unique way we allocate it seems ridiculously wasteful to me.

    Bet it cost more than 5 million for all the new uniforms, could have left those for the new budget in April instead of us. 🤣

    So reading the above post has he increased their budget now? And what does he mean by ringfenced money? Is this still him trying to avoid giving more or is he actually giving more?



  • Registered Users Posts: 99 ✭✭ DDGS7


    Its hard to tell what he means, from my reading of the budget it's blatantly obvious that justice has a reduced budget compared to the last year's budget so I'm not sure where he's got that from.



  • Registered Users Posts: 21 rouge_one


    He mentioned ring fenced which to me means allocated funds are guaranteed for a purpose (purpose meaning the new decade new approach?) but you never know with this government always bickering about something.



  • Registered Users Posts: 99 ✭✭ lornzeo99


    I’m pretty sure he has reduced it by 2%? The good thing is that none of the other parties are prepared to approve his budget if his budget doesn’t let them recruit the recommended officers from the patten report so hopefully he backs down



  • Registered Users Posts: 99 ✭✭ lornzeo99


    He has definitely already said their budget was decreased by 2% to support the health budget that’s why I was wondering from that does he mean he has now increased it…



  • Registered Users Posts: 51 ✭✭ Tango-Hotel


    34 weeks and counting now for vetting.


    Hopefully we'll hear some good news about the budget come April.



  • Registered Users Posts: 49 Gda88


    Did you email them asking why this has been away so long?



  • Registered Users Posts: 51 ✭✭ Tango-Hotel


    Yeah, emailed 3 times to get the same generic response every time. Asked them what the delay is, and they never answered why.


    So frustrating.



  • Registered Users Posts: 99 ✭✭ lornzeo99


    Hopefully you hear soon 🤞 where are you on the merit list?

    Looks like more bad news for us, collapse of stormont means no decisions will be made on budget so looking likely recruitment will stop



  • Registered Users Posts: 99 ✭✭ DDGS7


    There was 2 recruitment drives that started and continued during the 3 years that we had no govt before. If the govt collapsed, which it won't due to new legislation in the house of commons to stop it, it'll not stop recruitment



  • Registered Users Posts: 84 ✭✭ Newyearnewjob


    The policing board meet today, will be using the link to see what is said about recruitment.



  • Registered Users Posts: 99 ✭✭ DDGS7


    Where is the link for that? Can't find it on the board website



  • Registered Users Posts: 84 ✭✭ Newyearnewjob


    Think it's on their twitter page.



  • Registered Users Posts: 99 ✭✭ lornzeo99


    It says they are live streaming a public accountability session I’m not sure that has anything to do with recruitment? I know it still ran over the last collapse but the budget isn’t likely to be approved now so I can’t see how they can run with it if they now have no budget? It’s all over Twitter because this will also affect the health budget etc

    Think it was part of the Chief constables report.
