Funplace to work in

The job is secure with a few benefits. The chances of being promoted is very slim. Even though you have the skill and qualification you donot have a chance of climbing the ladder. Still you can work in the environment where you feel you can make a difference . I enjoyed working with people but the best part was during my fieldtraining years. I trained several policeman how to act and be professional in their job.


You get to learn alot from your community


Long hours at times drainend you physiologically
