Police Sergeant in East/Blackburn/Burnley
ACPO out of touch with response and custody offices.
I worked for Lancashire Police for nearly 30 years. In that time i worked in a number of roles from response , custody to CID.The operating bases in East do not work and this places its young staff under a lot of pressure. This then results in numbers being short on regular basis. This should of been addressed 5 years since , but it is still a huge issue.The custody office is also a huge issue at Burnley, opening , then closing usually when it is busy.In essence ACPO are so far out of touch in their ivory tower that response and custody are not valued.Very few of the senior leaders have spent time as a modern day response officer. The custody office is still seen as a dumping ground and punishment posting despite being a risky place to work in.

They employ dangerous strange people
Jobs was fine until a girl starts stalking you and they cover it up because she's mentally ill. Stalking got so bad I had to leave. No support, just incompetent people covering their backside. If I man had done what she did then he'd have been sacked. I know of countless cases of this happening, saving them for a book.
Police Officer in Blackpool, Lancashire
Due to a lack in numbers and pressure I have found the workloads and expectancy far to great. I have suffered injuries and it has caused mental health issues for me.
Police Control Room Operator in Preston, Lancashire
Not a great working environment
Considering the responsibilities, the job is very poorly paid. It is consistently busy with a bell which constantly rings when there's calls in the queue. You are constantly watched and monitored. There is no promotion and lots of favouritism. A majority of the staff are great but I have witnessed one team leader aggressively shouting and belittling staff in view of the whole room
