About Join The Cops

Hey there! I used to be a detective in Edinburgh, working with the police on some pretty serious cases.

I loved my job, but then something else cool came up, so I switched paths. I noticed a lot of young folks like you had tons of questions about joining the police but didn’t know where to get answers. So, I made this website!

Think of it as your go-to guide for everything about becoming a police officer in Scotland.

I’ve got tips, stories, and advice—all from my own time with the police.

And hey, I really want to hear from you! If you have questions, thoughts, or just want to chat about the stuff on this site, hit me up. Let’s talk!
