    Apparently she needs to put my details on the application form so I can be 'vetted'. Not just me but all her immediate family.

    Will a few low level convictions (1 breach of the peace, a couple of possession charges) cause any problems in this process for her?

    shame on the family name-its OK tar, my uncle stood for tory councillor. I too know the shame.

    in serious answer I don't see your youthfull indiscretions as causing a problem- I imagine the vetting is to check she isn't related to a Mr Big and/or trying a bit of crim family entryism into the polis. Freemasonry, fine, but not crim connections.

    Put some money into an Irish bank account and get a friend to buy some fertaliser with the funds, see what happens.

    I doubt your convictions will matter, but I thought the police had put a freeze on recruitment - Coz of the cuts. Maybe it's different in Scotland?

    It shouldnt be a problem - they just want to know who's who in the relationship setup and file it for posterity - though I would be surpised if they dont discuss at interview for clarity

    Just a thought,is it actually legal to vet family members of an individual applying for a job.The biblical bit about my brothers keeper seems not to mean anything to plod.

    Going by the rooky cop programme set in Tayside I saw recently she's going to spend a lot of time pulling up drunk men's breeks and imploring them to stop showing people their cocks.

    I know this won't go down too well on such a radical site ;) but I am proud of her. When she was going through her teens she had to contend with her older brother being a drug addict and all the drama and chaos that goes with that, on top of the usual teenage stuff. I have a lot of guilt over that and just want her to do well.

    She has turned out great, and has just finished her degree. She did a dissertation on harm-reduction which I just read and it is excellent :) She is a total leftie and believes in social justice. If she joins the police it will be for the right reasons and she'll be one of the good guys.

    *awaits blah blah corrupted by the organisational culture blah blah serving ruling class interests :p whatevs, I amen't going to say those things to her.

    fair play to you for all that
    it does get people who are good and go in with the best intentions down and disillusioned, hope your sis can handle it and stay unaffected

    No need to be coy. You're among friends here. :)

    I'll see if I can find it. It wasn't my choice you understand. An urban was staying at mine and took control of the remote. The next night there was a programme on large families and one was a girl I was at school with who has 12 kids.

    I like how you had to edit that. :D

    But don't you live in Scotland? Wouldn't it be common for prosepctive cops to have a sibling with a minor drugs record? :D

    absolutely

    this is nothing. in my time I have been EPV'd (extended positive vetting) and the more recent version - developed vetting. they not only look at your family but your close friends too. At my last interview they knew more about what I had been doing than I did.. "are you sure about that.. could you maybe have been at xxxx on that day?"

    ^^That's fucking outrageous. I was just reading on a NZ site about them bringing in mandatory drug tests for benefit claimants next year and those failing will have benefits stopped and be charged for the test plus Greek workers being forced to work longer hours.I can't see much more of this happening without massive social unrest.

    Good for you, be proud of her. Sounds like she's just the sort of person we need in the police. :)

    One of my best mates is also a leftie cop by the way.
