Worst Police Force In the Country
I will start with the training, its very good and you will meet friends for life. however once that has finished then the real BTP hits you like a brick. Very bad Sergeants and management just looking after there own careers, looking for anything to have a go at you for and putting you on an action plan! lots of inhouse bullying where any reports just falls on deaf ears if your face does not fit. BTP are so far behing the real police, real police i mean home office forces, BTP treat a bike theft like murder. The salary is not bad and you get oyster cards to travel when off duty, but thats it really if you dont fit in they will somehow push you so far you resign. This is my experience at Reading, if you want to join the Police then stay well clear of BTP and join a proper Police Force IE Home office.
Management, paperwork, bullying
