Cautions

Post by Tiger » Sun Sep 03, 2017 10:57 pm

I have applied to be a prison officer and I have a caution 2 and a half years ago for assault by pushing my friend. Is this likely to affect my application. I declared it on the online form abs still got to the RAD.

no one knows, it could do but as it has been declared and a relatively silly affair then I doubt it, no charges were brought against you for assault so you should be fine.

I have told shared service and they think I'll be fine. I've passed my rad and have offered to work in any prison in the UK so hopefully they can see I want the job. How long does it take from you passing until you receive a conditional offer? :slbg:

Wow ! Anywhere in the UK !!

So hypertheicly let's say your offered a job 300 miles away from your current location !! Your going to find accommodation and fund the move within the period before you start ?

What is gioing to happen if your offered london ? A single room can cost as much as £630 a month ( price I played a few years back )

But you have had too have applied for an establishment or a cluster so Your application will only be processed as per your application !

Good luck with your application

I've been worrying about a fixed penalty and 3 points on driving licence (well over a decade ago) do you think of I've declared this that I will be ok?

Thank you for the reassurance - Ive worried myself sick because it was so long ago I didn't declare it but then emailed them as soon as I realised! Fingers crossed then - you've given me hope!

If you declare it, it won't. Mine was 2 and a half years ago and it was for the same, pushing someone. I'm looking like I'll pass x
