Contact Handler in Worcester
Probably one of the best places I've worked
It's a busy and sometimes hectic control room environment. The work is varied and interesting. Although some of the supervision may lack people some skills, a majority of the staff are great. The training could be better.
Witness Care Officer in Shrewsbury, Shropshire
An uncaring company
I worked for WMP for 12 years being made redundant due to government cuts and relocating all services to Worcester where the HQ is based.. . I had treatment for breast cancer whilst employed by them chemotherapy and radiotherapy and 2 lumpectomies.. I was treated awfully during this time being forced to apply and attend an interview for my own job.. no care at all from them.
The West Mercia Cadets were a very immersive group which help children and teenagers with life skills and knowledge of policing. However, they don't focus enough on the policing aspect. If you want to learn about policing, do not go to the police cadets to do so.
Police Constable in Worcester
Fast Paced Industry
Policing is an extremely stressful area of work and becoming more so every day. Ensure you have spoken to serving officers to ensure it is the right place to work for you.
Police Officer in Kidderminster, Worcestershire
Thoroughly enjoyed my time as a police officer
30 year service completed. I had a great time, met some lovely people and have memories that will stay with me forever. I could have stayed on until I was 60 but I was keen to try my hand at something new so I retired and made way for someone new to take my place. Yes its demanding and challenging but where else can you see and experience what police officers deal with daily. Would thoroughly recommend.
