Why the tasks that the police service carries out are important The work of the police is vital to everyone in this country. They are dedicated to delivering services, in partnership with the community, to keep England the best and safest place to be. They are honest and open in interacting with the members of the community. They try to be honourable to the community so they do what is right. They try to treat the community fairly, so they can get respect from them, so everyone can be treated in an imperial, equitable, sensitive and ethical manner. ...read more.

In addition to relevant personal details, it will also contain questions designed to assess my competencies. No policing knowledge will be required and the form will gives me comprehensive guidance about what to consider and how to complete your application. If my form is rejected, it may be eligible to re-apply, but it depends on the circumstances and if I pass I will go to the next stage. Stage 2 I will attend the Police Headquarters for a height, weight, eyesight and colour vision check, sit the initial entrance tests and complete additional questionnaires. This is to measure my height and weight because it has to be suitable that means not too thin and not too fat. If I fail, my application will be terminated and no re-application will be available for six months and if I pass I'll go to the next stage. Stage 3 I will give them my background including my academic and employer references. This is to check if I have any criminal record; if any member of my family or my friends is criminals; if my nationality is fulfil; and I have any terrorists' links. If I fail, my application will be terminated, depending on circumstances, it may be available to re-apply after a minimum period of six months and I pass I'll go to the next stage. Stage 4 I will spend a full day being observed and assessed while I carry out a range of activities and tests. This is to see how I relate to the other, and whether I show teamwork and leadership qualities. If I fail, my application will be terminated and no re-application will be available for a minimum period of six months and if I pass I'll go to the next stage. Stage 5 I will do the physical fitness test at the Force Training School. This will test my endurance, speed and agility, dynamic strength and grip strength. ...read more.

Conclusion

That is why I'm studying public services, to learn more about the police; its purpose, responsibilities and roles. The career structure of the police * Constable * Sergeant * Inspector * Chief Inspector * Superintendent * Chief Superintendent * Assistant Chief Constable * Chief Constable My potential and limitations for career development in the police I'm very determining to join the police. I have the feeling that it will be very difficult to get in but I will try all my best to get in and I know that I have the potential to get into the police because in all my actions there's always a clearly defined goal. After the trip at the army I felt like I could do anything. I like work as a team, and I believe that teamwork is one of the quality to be a good police officer. Trust is very important. I should able to trust the persons I am working with, and they should be able to trust me. To join the police I have to be fit. Like when I will follow a criminal, I will have to able to keep going. Being over weight is one of my weaknesses because as I said you need to be fit to join the police. That is why I will start by today to go to the gym and do some exercise. This will be very healthy and will also help me to be fit. I think the fact that I speak two languages will be an advantage because some times when one of the criminal speak another language such as French is useful to have somebody who speaks that language. After I've join the police I would like to be considered for a promotion after five years, if I do well of course, I'll see myself as a sergeant. I will spend three as a constable and then pass a test called OSPRE to be a sergeant. I will spend two years as a sergeant and then I will pass a test to be an inspector. ...read more.
