    United Nations

    Hi, hope someone is able to answer this for me? Basically my ambition is to get in to CP work or ideally policing internationally in some form one day. I'm in the job in the UK so i'm a small way there, however I notice the UN are regularly recruiting for CPO's based in conflict areas but...

    CNC or Home office?

    I see you were unsusceptible to my jest...nevermind. CNC would involve lots of standing/sitting around, granted; however by the very terms of your continued employment and the fact you need to do a (comparatively) hard fitness every year you'd probably get yourself down the gym or out for the...

    CNC or Home office?

    You would'nt be fat for long...or maybe fat and unemployed as CNC officers need to run 7.6 on a bleep test every year until they're 60.

    Get Licensed

    Thanks, interesting to know. Yeah like I said the company didn't feel professional or practical enough to be pumping out Close Protection courses....it's scary that they do!

    Get Licensed

    Out of curiosity I just wanted to get any reviews from people who have done courses with Get Licensed. I did a Door Supervisor course with them back in 2009 and it felt like a reasonably decent course at the time but I have noticed they do a full catalogue of courses including Close Protection...

    Civil Nuclear Constabulary

    Personally I wouldn't take any notice of the respect aspect of it, it just depends what you want to do. Your correct on the starting/training salary, it's a fairly good rate as they have avoided Winsor review alterations to pay scales. The pension is subject to review at the moment but currently...

    Civilian Policing to Close Protection Career Route

    Thanks conwy, thats really constructive and appreciated advice. Not that much makes common sense in the police now anyway but that surprises me re. the secondments; you'd think constables would be cheaper and easier to extract from home duties than senior officers. Better get myself some pips then!

    Civilian Policing to Close Protection Career Route

    Thanks for the response Nippy. Not quite fully fledged, I'm starting this spring but just wanted some advice on the long term plan. I know I'm my own worst enemy, I've always planned for the future and worked towards that 'something else' which can be to my own detriment. As of April I'm just...

    Work in Dubai..

    From research I have done in the past UAE has very limited prospects in terms of security work in general for non residents. There is a very cheap and expendable labour market and a great deal of security posts are filled with Indian/Asian migrants. There are large recruitment companies based in...

    Civilian Policing to Close Protection Career Route

    Noted. I don't have a particular passion for guns and I'm not after the gun toting image. My aim is to be a police officer and then try to break in to international policing which often goes hand in hand with being armed. I don't have any ambition to join the armed forces just wanted to know how...

    Civil Nuclear Constabulary

    Don't join CNC if you want to transfer to a Home Office force because they don't except transfers from special forces like CNC. It is completely different work and CNC has almost no resemblance to regular policing. You will basically be a security guard with a gun doing patrols of the wire. CNC...
