Will This Stop Me?

Firstly, hi. My journey into the prison service isn't going to be a smooth one due to lots of personal hurdles that stand in my way... But I'm willing to see this through as far as I can and hopefully tackle things as they occur.

I am in the very early application stage but one of the queries I cannot find and guidance on is in regards to my dad.

My relationship with him is somewhat strained and he has previously spent time in prison (as recently as last year which I didn't know about). Is this going to go against me?

Your Dad isn't going to cause you a problem with your application. He is reponsible for his own actions just like you or anyone else; it wont affect your application. The only time you would really have to mention it is if he came into a prison you worked in.

The above is almost true
You would have to file a conflict of interest
Nothing major
You could still go visit if needed
It's just if you don't tell them of any issues

Looks like I've been stopped.

Was dismissed following a misconduct investigation from a police force.

I explained it all with my mitigating circumstances in my vetting pack (back in September) but despite that, and me doing a RAD that was a 400 mile round trip, and a retest whilst on a family holiday, and chasing up all my references, it is now an issue.
needed to exercise so took up schwimming
