I applied online. The process took 12 months. I interviewed at Metropolitan Police Service (London, England, England) in Aug 2019

Interview

Very lengthy process, over a year in total. Day 1 has a very low pass rate, I think around 70% of applicants pass the day. Day 2 fitness test is only 5.4, again, not many people fail that. Day 3 is very difficult. You'll need to do a lot of preparation.
