Thread: Suffolk Variation

  1. #1

    Suffolk Variation

    Anyone know how long Suffolk Constabulary are taking with Variations at the moment?

    Shouldn't take long for just a variation as long as you aren't asking for the earth! The FEO will give you a good idea. I once got one done in a day!
    MS

    Mine took about a month back in feb, they have merged Suffolk and Norfolk depts so have got to re-cover a lot of old ground that you would have given them already to merge their data. Expect a visit from the feo, cheers.

    My last variation a couple of months back took 3 days from posting to see my FEO, then another 5 days to get the certificate back.

    Very prompt!

    Recent experience of the Norfolk team, now amalgamated with Suffolk, was about ten days. They seem very helpful when approached .

    You chaps need to move to Wiltshire, the team there are outstanding, went in there yesterday for a variation, they did it in 15 minutes on the spot and I was out there in 30 minutes after having a brew! Now that is outstanding service!!

    Nope! I once took mine in the day before New Year's Eve and they did it whilst I waited- 30mins max!

    I made sure I got everything I needed on my ticket before I moved to Hampshire

    Funny you should say that. My son lives in Wiltshire and keeps nibbling away at his ma that we should move there and buy a big house together.

    I have no recent experience to add on the Suffolk system post amalgamation with Norfolk. I did once, back in the mid-80's see a bumper sticker "Yew won't hurry me I'm from Suffolk". I don't imagine that it belonged to any of the fine upstanding professionals operating out of Martlesham Force HQ.
