Proud Dad 2

Very proud day Toastie for all concerned.
As it happens, my son is one of a team of Staff Trainers & Health Projects chaps / chapp-ets with Police Scotland.
Loves the job. SWMBO & I have been to a couple of Pass Out gigs as ad hoc guests.
Always nice to see the families turn up and watch their "kids" take their reward.
At the end of the day, you'll still just be "Dad" and she your "lass".
Whether she likes it or not! ;)
 
You may remember I asked for some advice a while back for my daughter who was about to start Police “basic training”? A lot of you gave freely and we are very grateful for your time.

I’d like to think it helped (she read the lot) as I’m delighted and very proud to announce that she “graduated” last Friday and did so with a lot of very complimentary comment from her Instructors. She meets her Block today and is on the job for the first time tomorrow. She’s very excited but also very aware that now the real learning starts.

Thanks again to you all for your time and advice, she and I are very grateful.
Excellent and good luck to her
 
Toastie,
I'm sorry.
Some bad boys have gone all ARRSE on your post.
I'm having NUFFINK to do with them.
I'd never be part of anything like that..:rolleyes:
 
Congratulations and best of luck to her. I’ll pass on the advice one of the old hands gave me when I started. To paraphrase, “It’s a job that can make you very cynical very quickly and you’ll be regularly surrounded by colleagues constantly whinging and gurning, often, but not always with cause to do so. Occasionally try to remember how excited you were when you were offered the job and why you wanted to be there in the first place”.
Good advice in any career I find. Something similar was told to me by a grumpy WO way back and it's got me through some pretty naff periods of employment.

We are now eagerly awaiting her photo appearing in the 'fit birds in uniform' thread.

It's the rules.
 
Firstly, congratulations and well done to her and every success moving forward.


More importantly and quite honestly I'm disappointed in everyone else for not mentioning it - first shift bring cakes and lots of them (homemade is a winner or failing that Krispy Kremes!). That and the magic words "who fancies a brew".
Went in with loads of stickies. About the only bit of advice I could give her.

She’d batter you. She scares me especially now she’s had specialist training in kicking the shit out of people.

I've done the cuffs, baton and Pava course. I await my beating with eager anticipation.

Well done her. There will be some surprising comments from her in conversation during the next year or two!

I've been there, though of course, I wasn't a cop. I was a fresh out of trained-soldier-week at 8 Sigs baby Scaley on leave for Christmas. Up I pipes, "could you pass the bleeping salt, dad?"
