Im guessing that a number of you ex squaddies are in the Prison service as I know alot of them are ex services. So hope you can help. I applied to the Prison service a few weeks ago online, and passed the online entrance test. (POST). I was invited to attend the Assessment centre to the next stage. However, I was put off going because I have a minor record. Basically, I have a juvenile caution for a theft offence ( my mate nicked a bottle of wine from a shop once and altough he was charged I was cautioned). Secondly, I was fined for damage to property.. I drunkely broke a window once...the RMP passed it onto my OC who gave me the fine. Nothing further was said. So I never have been to court for any offence. These were in my early 20s, a long time ago. Now on the initial online form I declared this, but still got put through to do the online entrance test. But this was within 48 hours of applying. Does anyone know if I will be rejected for this?..I know some people will say just give it a shot, but to be honest Id rather not waste my time or get disheartened.I have an uncle in the service who Im close to, but ive never told my family about my stupidness as even now I find it embarrassing.
