    Should I Join?

    Thanks Guys! That's good to know that only 1 of 22 decided to go back to their previous job. I have been told that it's the old school officers that are more discouraging about the force because they've seen the most change. But newer recruits see it from a different perspective, and perhaps know how difficult it is to come by quality jobs and therefore are happy with their position in the force.

    Should I Join?

    Hello All, So I've got a few questions that may be better suited to experienced officers, PCSO's or specials but I'd be grateful for anybody who's interested insight. It's a bit of a long one so bare with me. After a quite a long process I am now on the waiting list to begin initial training to become a Police Officer within West Mercia & Warwickshire Police. This is something I've wanted to do for many years now. However, I currently work for a properous young company with a lot of potential. I wouldn't say I love the job but I certainly don't hate it and I'm looked after there and it's highly doubtful I'd ever lose my job through redundancy or anything similar to this. It's worth noting that I applied to become a police officer before getting this posistion. Now, In the coming weeks/months I'm expecting an offer of employment from my chosen force. So as I mentioned, I'm looking for some insight. With all the negativity floating around a career In the force now what are your opinions on it? (preferably people with experience). I know things vary from force to force, but Could anybody tell me the realistic potential of promotion. And, is it a job for life? Are redundancies gaining to become an issue in coming years? I don't mean to be negative but I want to know the full picture before joining. Any advice, experience, insight would be greatly appreciated. Cheers, James.
