It is a dangerous and arduous occupation. Whilst salary and job security rate high a good organisation is ruined by it's management.

You have no/little life. The job owns you. Your family suffers due to work commitments.
Sure the pay is adequate but at a cost. The cost is to you and your family as The Police Force OWNS you and is a very demanding beast. You are also austricised from the general community which can effect your children as well.
