Police Officer in Brisbane QLD
Unrealistic expectations place on frontline staffSenior management lack understanding of the difficulty in operational policing in the modern day. The QPS lacks essential equipment and training for staff who make do with the very minimum. Regional areas are not supported adequately for housing for staff and stations are generally inadequate. Officers on the frontline cover for many other government departments after hours and carry responsibility for actions with minimum assistance.
Police Officer in Rockhampton QLD
Not a job I'd recommend to anyone. Very little respect on the Streets these days. Workload and paperwork is too much. It's not a job I'd recommend to my children or friends. Policing is failing badly due to a weak Court system that releases the reoffenders back onto the Streets to cause havoc. Police are worn out and the average public wouldn't have a clue.

Communications Officer in Maroochydore QLD
QPS Communications - top jobTypical day at work can be characterized as fast paced, time critical decisions to be made, variety of personalities calling for assistance, at times stressful in meeting demands and multitasking, and very rewarding and satisfying. I learned much about the Law, Policing, how to speak to and elicit critical information out of very distressed callers, and much much more.Management in my experience were professional, and ethically addressed issues as they arose. I have fond memories of meeting and working with many great people. The hardest part of the job was night shifts. Leading to the most enjoyable part of the job, the satisfaction of knowing that what I did during my shift, made positive impact on outcomes, I was there for people facing some of the most traumatic situations in their lives.
Sergeant of Police, Officer in Charge in Queensland Rural and Remote
33 years later After a downturn in cattle prices and drought I decided to apply for the Queensland Police Force, later the Queensland Police Service. Every day a different day .....lots of help and encouragement and solid learning and with the finest dedicated people in Queensland. Some tough days but lots of satisfying days and great community satisfaction. Lots of interesting internal pathways ....over 400 different fields after initial training and 2 years of front line street basics.
