Would anybody be able to tell me whether shift work is required in all the roles within the Police? I am currently in the recruiting phase for the Police Officer role with West Yorkshire Police and I understand that for this role shift work is involved. If I decide to specialise, is there any specialism I can go into that does not require shift work (i.e. ideally working 9-5?). I ask because I have previously read that the long term health affects of shift work can be potentially dangerous.
