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.


Job security, reasonable pay, team spirit, support from line managers, staff with honesty and integrity, diverse and non discriminatory, recognition for good work, a job that brings pride and satisfaction, lateral development available, promotion prospects available.


Long hours, regular weekends and night shifts, dealing with some of the worst in society, lots of paperwork and tight deadlines, stressful pressurised job, verbal and physical abuse from criminals, be prepared to change your views on society and look at people and things with cynicism, convoluted working processes, vocation not a job so effectively on duty 24/7 and you behaviour off duty is important.
