    I worked at British Transport Police full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Opportunity to work all over the UK. If there is a major incident you will be involved in it. Reasonable pay. Core of good police officers in London who are good detectives and thief takers. Basically i was one of a core of tecs who were motivated and keen to get on with the job. During my career I was involved in some interesting cases and sensitive work. The BTP get involved in a lot of jobs that the general public would be likely to be unaware of.

    Cons

    Management are all promotion chasing yes men who keep trying to reinvent the wheel. They will not keep any structure in place for more than five minutes. They treat and bully their own bosses with dreadfully high work load and freeze them out if any dissension is perceived. One very senior officer is a bully.
    Long hours if you put yourself about.

    Advice to Management

    Retire.
