Reviews for Police Officer at CITY OF LONDON POLICE

Not as good as they think they are....

The force has a lot of very good investigators, and has delivered some good results. However too much is traded off a reputation which has slipped in recent years. Budget cuts, and poor management decisions continue to hamper the skilled staff from delivering greater results. The UK criminal justice system is effectively breaking down when it comes to managing big cases, and many economic crime cases here become drawn out over many years. This results in officers getting either jaded or gradually becoming deskilled. A continuing series of restructures promises much but delivers little other than an effect of a continuous spam of management reports. Technology is always behind the curve. The force benefits from not being the Metropolitan Police, and not facing the devastating cuts experienced by county forces. There is less pressure and politics from external parties. However internal politics can be both petty and grinding the higher up one might rise. Too many managers at senior level pose and compete and deliver nothing for the workforce. The general workforce are really friendly and many are very skilled at their roles. Opportunities abound to leave policing for a more lucrative career elsewhere.


More time than most other police agencies, good for moving to better opportunities elsewhere


Poorly managed and too much internal politics

Brilliant working environment

Working at the City of London Police was amazing with meeting people from all walks of life, being it working colleagues, victims, offenders and most importantly members of the public. Every day was different. in the job, there was no boring day or a day that is similar to other days, these is where the excitement and the challenge was.


Meeting different people and exposing to so much information and the fun that comes with it.


Definately Long hours

Small Professional Force providing excellent service

There is no such thing as a Typical Day at Work for a Police Officer, every day presented a different challenge, and this is what I found to be the most enjoyable part of the job. During my service I have dealt with all manner of situations from lost children, being asked questions and having my photo taken by tourists, dealing with minor crime and traffice incidents to the more serious events such as fatal accidents, suicides, and terrorist incidents.My fellow officers were always professional and there to back you up when needed, consequently some very close friendships were formed.The management, on the whole, were equally professional, but aat times could be frustrating especially when decisions needed to be made quickly.The hardest part of the job for me was having to retire after 35 years of service.


diversity of the job - no two days the same


long hours, sometimes working at very short notice
