Why does the police recruitment process take so long?

Posted 20th Nov 2016
I applied to become a PCSO at the end of August

Had an interview, end of September

Had the drug test, fingerprints and so forth beginning of November

Told I will have my medical in the new year and start next June!

6 months to wait from now to start in the police, seems a long time

Anyone else who has applied for the PCSO postion or another unit of the police force, have to wait so long?

Would welcome other peroples experiences, who have been through the police recruitment process

p.s. Fully expect people to comment that PCSO is just a plastic copper and so forth. Heard it all before.
