Competition to join the police remains intense. Of approximately 60,000 applications in England and Wales per year, only 5-6000 are successful. This fully revised new edition will help candidates to rise to this considerable challenge and achieve their goal. It provides detailed guidance on every aspect of the selection process: the competencies required, how to complete the application form, and the numerous tests candidates face at an assessment centre. This is the most daunting aspect of the selection procedure, and the book concentrates on this area - there are plenty of practice questions and exercises relevant to the various tests, such as numerical reasoning, verbal logical reasoning, report writing, role play exercises, and advice on the interview itself. Candidates can also find out what to expect from the medical and how to prepare for the physical fitness test. With information on what successful candidates should expect by way of training, this book is the most comprehensive guide to the new police recruitment procedures available.
