Probably one of the most interesting and exciting jobs any one could ever perform. The variations and possibilities of employment are fantastic. Learning on the job, supervised by those senior in rank with great skills, There is great team work, you mix with similar minded people who in the majority are enthusiastic, caring, professional, keen on making a difference and perform their job to the best of their ability. In the Victoria Police, duties vary enormously, from basic mobile and Street beat work, to investigations with the various CIB squads, including surveillance, forensic, accident investigations and many others. Management in general are very supportive and recognise talent and those who have obvious skills in certain areas. The job is so exciting most don,t want to miss a day. The hardest part of the job is your initial education at the Academy, learning all the relevant legislation and learning about the numerous duties police are supposed to be able perform and then trying to maintain the learning while on the street. The whole job is enjoyable. The good bad and the ugly all part of the learning curve of law enforcement
keeping the general public on side.
