A typical day was started with a debrief. This included tasks that needed attention, activities occurring in the area. Persons of interest. Then as jobs were called in, attending to the matters. This included vast variables. Victims and offenders interviewed and statements documented. Offenders prosecuted. Court files lodged. Offenders processed, and victims informed. Patrolling high crime areas. Checking Bars, Sting operations. Great Co workers working as a team. Hardest part of the job. Having to do mortuary procedures.. Enjoyable part of the job. Getting an outcome to a situation.
Pros
Job Package, super, gym facilities.
Cons
shifts.

Constable (Former Employee) - Waikato District, Waikato
The pay was disproportionate to the level of risk undertaken by those on the frontline. However in saying that, where there were levels of disparity in pay for the amount of risk taken, when injured or needing special leave etc, the Police welfare looked after you exceptionally well which I don't think you would get in any other job. For example, sick leave leave, family leave, mental wellbeing etc. The Police looked after you very well in this area.

Sworn Officer of the New Zealand Police (Former Employee) - Hamilton, Waikato
NZ Police helped me mature as a professional and learn how to overcome difficulties. They were a benevolent employee and a fine organisation to work for.
