Reviews for Police Officer in NSW Police Force

Awesome gig!

Fantastic job, extremely challenging and extremely tough but the rewards are amazing. Helping out women in domestics, kids in distress, even seniors crossing the road make it feel like you're making a difference even if it's a small one in people's lives. I have to say though if you're reading this, I've seen LOTS of 18-21 year olds enter this job, and please it is not for the faint of heart or young teenagers. You will see the darkest side of society and sadly not all teenagers have the brain maturity to see that just yet. Lots of new under 25 young probies are very mouthy, refuse to do jobs and just can't handle domestics (as they've been heavily shetered at home by mum and dad). I've seen kids torn to shreds at pubs when confronting a 120kg drunk and they have no clue as they have no real world experience beyond sitting at the footy field after Science class. Go do something else, enjoy life before you see the true evil side of the world. I strongly recommend working in a customer service job for at least 3 years before attempting this job otherwise you'll be torn in half within your first 3 months when you are given the most rubbish and dangerous jobs as a probie, and you will want out, believe me I've seen 5 out of 6 leave within weeks of joining the station!
