Police Officer in Chesterfield, Derbyshire
Rewarding and very varied.
This was my dream job as a child. It turned out to be my career and a definition of who I am. This job was all encompassing and impacted on every aspect of my life. The role was exceptionally rewarding and gave me a sense of making a difference to the quality of others lives. You never really knew what was in store for you on a daily basis and the ability to be flexible is essential. This is not a career path for the faint hearted. You see and hear things that you can’t unsee or hear! Being able to accept how others run their lives allows you to look past the outer appearances and lets you see the people and the situation underneath. I was, at times, cold, wet, hungry and sometimes scared, but I miss my role every day. I would never of left had I not been retired through I’ll health. Ironically I am fit and well again and would love to be doing my job again.

Not for everyone.
It's a tough job in an uncaring environment. You need to be patient and have thick skin to succeed. The job is thankless and you will have to face many conflict situations throughout the day.

Working for Derbyshire Police
I transferred into Derbyshire Constabulary in 2009 from another force area . I have nothing more I can say about it as an organisation but excellent . I found them to be progressive , fair, dedicated and emphatic . They have the highest professional standards and a diverse workforce. I would recommend anyone to work for them if you are dedicated , focussed and professional. Don’t work for them if you expect no stress.

Good work life balance, great team and fair emoloyer
Lots of employee relation work, great team, supportive of work life balance throughout the organisation. Lots of variety of work including project work with a focus on wellbeing. Salary is not as competitive as other public sector organisations for similar role but other benefits included are great. Work life balance is priceless, to have a balance of work and spending time with my family supportive with good policies.
