Hi there. I'm Jamie and this is my first post on PIA. (Been monitoring it for months mind) I'm married with a twelve year old son and two dogs. I'm just applying to SAPOL for their 2011 recruitment campaign in the UK and I'm looking for some advice about areas outside of Adelaide. I have to put three preferences down for locations to live. I've lived and worked as a cop in city centres in the UK for years and fancy a complete change if accepted by SAPOL.
Kim (wife) and I have been researching areas to live for months and we've come down to these choices - 1. Victor Harbour, 2. Whyalla, 3. Port Lincoln.
However, I like the hills and places like Clare appeal to me as well as Mount Barker.
Before i finally put our choices to paper, please can someone offer us some advice about living, working, schools, socialising (lots of wine), golfing, hospitals etc in these areas? Or indeed if we're missing a trick and there's somewhere else we should be considering?
Looking forward to receiving some insider knowledge.
Jamie and Kim
