Reviews for Police Officer at Metropolitan Police

Undervalued and understaffed

It's hard to sum up the police because one minute it's the best job ever and the next the worst. I enjoyed the working with mates and in a close knit group but when you are asked to work yourself to the bone and seemingly get no recognition for your hard work, it gets draining. I wouldn't put someone off from joining but am equally not surprised when someone leaves.

Long but worth it

Met so many amazing people that will be friends for life I understand that everyone is against the police but it's not all police officers and I wish I stayed but the hours were too long!

Over all else the training received has proved to be sun standard. Officers are entering the workforce with very little service and being assured by officers with barely 3 yrs service. Officers are frightened to get involved as the support isn’t there when things go wrong. Until the met sorts itself out, it’s not a pleasant experience.




Poor pay to start
