Retired Police Officer in Wallsend, Tyne and Wear
on 7 April 2022
Tough job. But great rewards.
Northumbria Police is consistently one of the best performing forces in the country and they strive to be the absolute best.The 'job' is far from perfect. But as an organisation, they do offer help and support where needed.I'll give my honest opinion having just retired in 2022 with 30 years pensionable service.It's nothing like Line of Duty. Even the reality cop shows only show the good/exciting bits. It's a tough role to fulfil - no one rings with good news! You have to be prepared to 'put your had in the lion's mouth' at times. It sounds dramatic, but you will run towards danger, when others are fleeing from it.You must be prepared to deal with things that you've never encountered before. It can be frightening, exciting and very fulfilling all at the same time.No matter what happens, police officers are resourceful and well trained. There is always someone who can help and advise. Never be afraid to ask for help.
Police Staff in Newcastle upon Tyne, Tyne and Wear

Poor Organisational Culture
Offers a very good range of flexibility to Police Staff workers to do the job - although bureaucracy and delays for the most simple decisions and tasks makes the job almost impossible on a day to day basis for the Teams. Wellbeing is promoted as a key benefit but is challenging due to the volume of work in departments.

Change of management resulted in change of direction.
What had been a decent department to work in suddenly became terrible. Change of leadership resulted in bullying and division of staff. People leaving in numbers poor moral. Good pay and some excellent colleagues let down by poor management.

Solid long term employment
Every day is different shift work including nights. Good work colleagues wage pensions are good and secure for later life. The public can be disrespectful but it is part of the job. Excellent career and secure job .

Not a good experience for me
My ex wife made it as difficult as she could for me to pogress in the Police but as well as that I didnt trust anyone I worked with, felt unsupported by the job and superiors and most of all felt no respect from the community
