** UPDATE **

I spoke to the trainers today, and as far as they are aware a course is scheduled-in for September.

Hang in there - it's worth it :slcud:

HR have told me that they aren't aware of Northants making any cutbacks and they are expecting an update on the PCSO recruitment in the next month! I have also been told seperately that 6th Sept is the date the trainers have been told to book for PCSO training!

Lets hope it all works out and doesn't get flushed last min! :D

No, I emailed them asking if we were at risk of being cut from recruitment as I was aware that other forces were dropping outstanding candidates!

Spoke to HR today, they have no news, can't even speculate...only firm info they have is that Northants force has got to make savings over the next three years and they are reviewing everything to see where those savings can be made :( I am not holding much hope up for another intake in the near future, but who knows until that final decision comes through!

I can,t believe HR would tell me they were making a final decision on may 4th and then
say there is no decision.
I,m losing all hope now. After such a long wait i think we deserve some sort of explanation
as to what is happening don,t you ?
I feel like my life has been put on hold :(

I hope some of you have had the same phonecall as me :D Today HR rang and informed me that an intake is going ahead in Sept and they would like to offer me a place on it! yay yay and yay again! :D Of course my reply was ABSOLUTELY!!
It is subject to me re-passing the fitness test again, but they are sending out a letter of confirmation either this afternoon or first thing tomorrow morning!

Chuffed to bits :D hope some more of you will be there too!
