Why become a police officer? Here, two recent recruits explain why to PolicingTV’s Tom Gaymor!
“I really wanted to help people, and be a part of that wider team spirit… Being a mum hasn’t stopped me or hindered me at all. It’s made me want to make my daughter really proud… Any mums that want to apply, then go for it!”
As part of a week’s filming for PolicingTV with Suffolk Constabulary, PolicingTV Presenter, Tom Gaymor, met two of the force’s most recent recruits – PC Sophie May and PC Benjamin Bridgland, three weeks in to their policing career.
“The experience [I’ve previously had] of helping customers has really shown me the difference I can make in the community, and I’ve thought, the best place [to deliver that] is in the police”.
“For me, it’s a very personal matter, my dad passed away when I was younger, and we received a death message by a police officer, and I thought you know, if I could do his role, and help other people in a safe manner, that led me to here, really”.
“I’m only 4 foot 11, so I’m not tall and big, but I’m genuinely not concerned – we’re going to have all the training, we’re going to have all the equipment, we’re going to have our team!”.
