Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
- Typical day - attend an examine all manner of crime scenes with the intention of identifying the culprit. Dealing with members of the public who have been victims of crime and providing them with a professional service. - I learn about people and how to provide individuals with a professional service in accordance with their specific needs and requirements. Learn more skills about the job everyday as each crime scene attended presents different challenges so I have to be dynamic, proactive and focused at all times. - I deal with all levels of management on a daily basis and am able to address or brief them in a confidant and professional manner. I have an excellent relationship with the management hierarchy. - Hardest part of the job can be dealing with un-savoury or gruesome incidents and tragic accidents. However working as a professional in a job of this nature I am secure in the fact that the job I do is vital in identifying what has happened and bringing offenders involved to justice. - The most enjoyable part of the job is knowing that I have made something happen, whether it be putting a stop to a crime wave that has been happening in a certain area or recovering a vital piece of evidence in a serious criminal inquiry. Knowing that I have gone above and beyond what is expected of me and getting results from this is extremely rewarding both personally and for the organization I work for.


Team work, different challeges everyday
