Very busy and dangerous

As a Police Officer, one must have good communication skills with the community members and always be alert of your surroundings. Being a Police officer is not only for the money or getting a salary, it's about opening your heart to strangers, but at the same time being strict so that people don't take advantage of your good heart. Safety first.

Pros

None

Cons

Very long hours

Very challenging and exciting at the same time.

Lots of cases allocated to one person, one has to handle pressure and be able to overcome any challenge, time management is essential, team work is necessary, working long hours in very straining situations, knowing that you have accomplished your duties is very exciting.

Pros

no incentives.

Cons

exhausting long hours.
