Thread: fac application quick question

    fac application quick question

    During the fac application process, I put down two suitable people as referees. One has just been contacted by phone the other is on holiday so presume the feo has left a message to get back to them.

    Are referees only contacted by phone or are they sent a form as well to complete sign and return. Just wanted to let my referees know what is expected from them. Thanks

    Regards sbm

    From what I remember you now just put their details on the one form. Both my referees were contacted by phone.

    Wow! that makes a change, many have said that their referrees have not been contacted, including one of my mates who renewed with West Mercia earlier this year.

    West mercia didn't contact either of my references on my first grant this year, but they did contact Barry who was/is the provider of most of my stalking outings (in fact, it seems as if the FEO must have parked up outside, phoned Barry and then come knocking on my door)

    Quick phone call by all intents... My referees were both contacted by phone and just asked 'do you know him?' and that was it!!!!

    All boils down to the force/FEO/current workload etc..

    New application process is just a meter of naming refs the foe will contact them.

    Phone is the norm these days. Unless the reply the FEO gets on the phone is: "Who? You're not giving him a gun licence are you?".
    in which case, he might get a visit. ��

    I've signed lots of forms as referee and never been contacted.

    Section 161 of the Highways Act 1980 (England & Wales) makes it an offence to discharge a firearm within 50 ft of the centre of a highway with vehicular rights without lawful authority or excuse, if as a result a user of the highway is injured, interrupted or endangered.
