To many poor managers, & lack of leadership
Traffic oficer (Former Employee) – East – 20 December 2017
The original idea was good "traffic officers to help the police with mundane jobs" but it's now got to the stage where highways officers are being asked to do more but not being rewarded for the extra work, it's also become a lot more dangerous, single crewing is being forced on everyone, also expecting you to give first aid on scene as well as managing the traffic, with a turnover of staff at 98% at one control centre I think this gives a good perspective of what it's like to work here. Bulling of staff that's never dealt with correctly, unable to book holidays due to lack of staff etc. It was a good experiment but personally I'd put the money spent on Highway traffic officers back into the police force to allow more on motorways.
Can't think of any now
Shift work, flat rate of pay at weekends, bank holidays, lack of staff terrible staff morale
