There’s no doubt that policing is a challenging career, but it’s also one of the most rewarding jobs out there.
Walking the beat is more than just making arrests – it’s about understanding the community you serve. The ability to speak to people on their level is a must, as well as respecting the different races and religions that make South Wales such an interesting place to live, work and visit.
Every day is different, but preventing crime, detecting crime, and making the people on your area feel safer will always be your main responsibilities.
A good police officer will:
Provide the highest possible standard of customer service
Be an excellent communicator
Have a knack for problem solving
Be an active team player
Take personal responsibility for achieving results
So whether you’re responding to an emergency incident, interviewing a victim, or gathering intelligence, you are key to keeping South Wales safe.
