Not one day is the same. Varied workload with positive outcomes for the Force and community. Ability to work with numerous and varied programmes to enable you to carry out your role with efficiency, economy and speed. Training courses are numerous and available to develop your role within the organisation. Trusted and respected member of staff and views are appreciated and acted upon.
Excellent working conditions
A typical workday would be to sign into the police databases and email systems. Work on the medium-risk cases that have come in overnight. Research both the victim and suspect and see what came in when the call came in. check guidelines and email partner agencies (if needed) write a report on what has happened and assign a risk level. I learned how the police dealt with domestic abuse and all the parties that are involved with Domestic abuse cases. The work culture is very close-knit as other colleges may know the suspect or victim and can help with the risk assessment. preempting what may happen in the future if the wrong risk assessment was given. The most enjoyable part of the job was doing the research into the victim and suspect and the satisfaction of being able to help.
All appears well within this organisation until you can see the cracks. There are huge faults within the organisation, mainly managment and back office created. If you want to progress, then your chances are limited. Nepotism is rife and the internal application processes are changed to suit the desired management outcome. If you are unlucky enough to make a mistake, don't worry managment and colleagues will be lining up to stab you in the back in order to make themselves look good.
Work life balance, incompetent spineless managers

Do these reviews help you learn more about working at Humberside Police?
This was a fantastic opportunity to learn more about the roles of the police and the different positions within. A fantastic insight which provided first hand experience into the industry and showed the realities of working in that job. A real eye opener.
Poor leadership who do not value staff. Unnecessary changes, unnecessary new policies and no respect for family life. Shifts changed last minute, leave constantly refused. Basic salary very poor, only earn reasonable money due to unsocial allowances. Too understaffed and under trained. Overtime rate taken away from staff. Constantly changing shift patterns causing upset.
Great team, interesting work
No life balance, poor pay, poor training and not enough staff.
No two days were ever the same, it would probably be quicker to list the things I didn't learn, there are so many facets to being a police officer that trying to quantify it is nigh on impossible, it was like being a member of an enormous extended family where the majority were always supportive, a great and strong resolve runs throughout, sometimes you wish you had never signed up because the things you see and deal with are just too terrible to relate but in the next moment you can feel absolute joy and a real sense of achievement and success through a job well done or just having been able to help, I would thoroughly recommend a career in the police service, as long as you have the resilience to succeed!
The greatest job satisfaction
Long hours, great pressure and too often unrealistic expectations.
Has a volunteer it is hard to explain in s little words. Interesting, challenging, fulfilling, meeting people, high morale, values and standards. 8 - 10 hour shifts on either Incident response or working alongside the Police Community Officers After a period of time as a volunteer under mentoring you will then be able to Police alone depending on your competency levels and understanding of basic law.
