Police Officer in Swansea
on 20 December 2021
Stressful but rewarding
Officers are under a lot of pressure, have high workloads and constantly being dragged from pillar to post. Management are on your case all the time and there is a culture of shouty emails and telling off for falling behind (which is inevitable given the workload). The people in the organisation are incredible, and a credit to Policing.Uniform and kit is hard to come by, but of decent quality. Vehicles are of reasonable condition and fit for purpose. Double crewing policy is in place so safer and more sociable than some other forces.
Police Community Support Officer in Cardiff

Quite stressful and long hours
Quite stressful and do not feel appreciated on times. Shifts can he hard when you have a family and hours are long. The feeling of not feeling appreciated can wear you down and make you feel quite anxious on times. On times though it can be rewarding when you have helped a member of the public and made them feel that bit safer.

Draining and demoralizing
I have worked for south wales police for 30 years. What started off as a fun and exciting job has turned into a job that is top heavy with managers and bureaucracy and light on workers. Many of the managers don't know what they are doing and task you to do things they know nothing about. The pressures on a police officer today are immense. Police seem to be accountable for everything to anyone. The publics expectations are unrealistic and expect officers to go outside the law when no such law exists to deal with their particular issue. The support from within is poor at best with just a few caring individuals. I have been fortunate to have worked with some great colleagues over the years and still do. The most enjoyable part of the job, other than going home, is seeing someone brought to justice for their actions, but that rarely happens today.
