"In this role you get to work with and meet some fantastic people. I’ve been lucky enough to work on a number of projects, including working with the Neighbourhood team, CID, training and Protester Removal Team specialists."
"I love being a PC, as I can use my power to fight crime! When you grow up as a child, you dream of turning on that blue light and arresting criminals. I’d simply say that this is the best job in the world."
"I am a local city girl and from the age of 13 I wanted to be a police officer. I’ve always wanted to help others, especially in diverse communities who had mistrust with the police. Policing to me has always been about meeting the needs of the community to keep them safe by reducing crime and listening to the many vibrant and diverse groups that live here in Nottingham."
"During a recent night shift I attended a pub fight, where I made two arrests, two more pub fights and I made a vehicle stop/check as part of the drink drive priorities, I also attended a report of a fellow officer being assaulted. As a team we dealt with 31 incidents that night, 22 of which were emergencies."
"The best part of the job is the satisfaction of knowing that you have helped someone in some way whether big or small. The force needs ambitious people to move through the ranks and have an influence, not only on the internal workings of the force, but also to reflect the communities that we serve."
"I have close family members who served for Nottinghamshire Police, and I grew up in a local police house, so you could say it was in my blood. I started at Carlton, which ironically was my father’s first posting, so many of the officers and staff I worked with kept calling me the wrong name to start with!"
