What are the working hours & culture

1 answer

Assorted depending on where you work, As a patrol officer at a police station generally 8 hour shifts 7am=3pm 3pm =11pm 11pm=7am. Some stations may vary 1 hr either way . Nights shifts generally minium of 4 nights but 7 nights is most common. But you do get 6 days off after a week of nights. On weekends there are additional shifts to cover busy periods Can be 6pm to 2am 7pm to 3am or 8 to 4am . Will also get occassional day shift to do paper work if your lucky 8am to 4pm or similar. Generally I found the people i worked with over 35+ years where great and I enjoyed my time Retired 2019. Policing is an ever changing world and you have to be prepared for that. Leave is good , Pay not bad and you have to fit in and be willing to compromise. You are part of a big work force . Don,t expect to get every weekend or Friday or sat off. But plan in advance and things generally work out.
