I know there are a few police on here so looking for some honest opinions.
Police is a career that has always interested me but has previously be closed to me. Rules around colour sight now seem to have changed which mean that I should pass medical (which I failed years ago for same reason)
I'm now 35 so would be a complete career changed for me from a secure, flexible and well paid job.
Things I'm interested in:
- Often hear complaints about admin / bureaucracy / police merger (Scotland), pension etc. Are these reasons to not apply or are they just usual grumbles similar to any career or workplace?
- How big an impact on family life could I expect? I worked shifts for years but not since having kids. Mine are primary school age and I don't want to miss out on too much. Is there any such thing as a regular shift pattern, what could I expect?
Any other honest opinions very much appreciated
