Great Culture
The culture stands out, particularly in enabling services. Colleagues and people make the difference. There is lots of empowerment to do your job, however some things are slow to progress because everyone is so busy, particularly if you are reliant on other people. Lots of staff networks to get involved in, coaching and mentoring opportunities too.

Good job horribly let down
Good job, helping the public in need. Interesting and intense sometimes. Pay is okay. Horribly let down by woeful staffing levels, dreadful morale and appalling senior management. Strategic decisions made at the complete detriment of frontline policing. A huge focus on buzzwords over substance.

Stressful job
It's not for everyone. Its fast paced, dealing with people who have had something nasty happen. Some are very rude and offensive. Others you go home feeling like you've helped someone.

Terrible cultures within
Wiltshire police is one of the most backward forces in the country. Terrible middle management with terrible work environment culture. Adding to that no resources to actually so your job. If you are considering transferring - DONT!!

Good Career if you are the right person
You can make a good career in the police, but you need to be the right person. Unless you are in management, you don't have much flexibility over the way you work, It's the managements way or no way. There is good support and the teams are more often that not nice to work with. work life balance has its pro's and con's.
