Best experience in self growth and development.
Police Community Support Officer (Former Employee) – Brighton – 30 August 2016
Shifts varied from 8-5pm, 10-6pm, 2-10pm, 3-12pm.I didnt mind this at all.
I have learnt deal with public in front line. Unique situations taught me to be spontaneous and innovative, creative and fast thinking. Often situations where very first experience therefore quick thinking and problem solving were skills very essential to learn and practice every day. No day was the same and not one person acted the same way again.I think i enjoyed this part of the job the most. First Aid course was crucial and essential,so radio communication. I didnt need to drive.I happened to have few sergeants while I was employed over several years but in all, I have adapted quite well and fast. I understood it that there were opportunities for some people to get on with their career progression an sometimes it was refreshing too. I didnt mind that at all. We were solid team with good relationships that were good all years along. We were looking out for one another and helped when it was needed. The hardest part of the job was the evening shifts or weekends, working in heat, rain or cold. But with the years one builds resilience which helps in private life too, so in all, good endurance experience from many points of view. Will power, problem solving, positive approach were all the attributes I can use in describing working for Sussex Police.
The best part of the job was meeting people in streets and asked all kind of questions which made me laugh. Some people were just awesome. I had fun.
Short breaks or no breaks at all.
