What is the working hours for beginner inexperienced security police? Do they offer fixed timings ? I hve 2 young kids so can’t stay away after 6pm day care.

Most police officers work an official 12 hour shift, however they are expected to regularly forfeit their leave & extend shifts for urgent incidents in London such as demonstrations, new years eve etc. There is a new system where the MPS is trying to take on part time officers, this is a new idea which they are piloting now. I'm not a police officer so can't give an expert opinion on these answers.

You have to stay and keep your shift rota

This is probably not for you, policing is 24hours a day
