Life under a magnifying glass , walking on egg shells , slightest thing said or done pulled for. Never told well done but always criticised . Worst experience have ever had . Managment lie and training very poor but if complain you will be singled out
Good shift pattern
Poor top level management that makes all the right noises about being an employer of choice but does not recognise skills and experience and does not value staff
Personal satisfaction when getting good results for the public of Nottingham
Great working culture but there is no potential for advancement and continuous fear of job security due to being public services. The hours are difficult but due to the good working culture you do get great support from your colleagues and management.
good shift allowance
My core role is to manage the officers, PCSOS and Civilian Investigators including their performance and well-being whilst also managing relationships between the police and our partners with a joint objective to promote safe communities through joined up strategies in managing crime and disorder Another key element in my role is managing vulnerability and ensuring plans are put in place to reduce this risk. The role is very challenging but equally rewarding and certainly part of policing where you can indeed make a difference.
making a difference and no day is the same
Dammed if you dammed if don't..expect that from the public
Stationed as administrative lead throughout application and implementation process. Acted as go between for applicants and local pension provider. Liaised confidentially with colleagues throughout highly sensitive and trying process;
Excellent place to work, all depends on where you are posted. Like all places, the experience comes down to management, training (or lack off). As a civilian investigator, you will be working more or less non stop but the experience one gains is exceptional and a lot of civilians will use this role as a stepping stone to become a dedicated police officer.
Seeing a weeks work in different departments of Nottinghamshire police gave me an experience of work which was highly organised but also pressurised. The work there was very serious and was a harsh environment to be in at times, but also you get a sense of achievement after the work is done and is made easier working with people with good humour and communication.
Good Technology and equipment
This profession bought out the best in me and allowed me to flourish in the policing environment, including getting promoted to Sergeant which meant extra responsibility of managing people.Overall I enjoyed working as a Police Officer, very demanding an rewarding.
Good salary and career prospects
Poor work life balance due to long hours and shift work.
Being a Police Officer was an interesting and sometimes exciting career, with the opportunity to change peoples lives for the better as well as dealing with those that sought to victimise other members of society. Day to day duties varied massively and you never knew what was coming next. Sadly, financial pressures resulting from the crash of 2008 resulted in the organisation forcing a large number of officers to retire, many of whom, like me did not wish to leave.
