Patrol the streets of Woking issuing PCNs.

Then main thing i learned was how not to lead a team by observing the practice of my team leader. The culture was a very much them and us scenario.

Local Council so to be expected but not much doing. Not really any chance of progression, espcially in the area i was in. Management were okay, but it's a council so nothing gets done.

The job that I do is very rewarding, the most enjoyable part of my day would be meeting the people while I am out and about. The hardest part of my day is not being able to spend a bit more time with them.
