I worked as a Police officer for over 31 years and had a great time. The work is challenging and I witnessed things that you wouldn't wish anyone else to see but that's the downside. The organisation itself is very good overall, not perfect as no organisation this size is but the rewards are worth it. It's a very hard job but you get satisfaction in knowing you've made a difference. If you can handle the sometimes weird sense of humour that Police officers have then this might be the career for you.
Pension, job satisfaction, feels like a family.
Challenging, not for the faint hearted.
