Transfer

Recommended Posts

grumeister

Hi all

 

I'm debating whether to transfer to COLP but given the small area I'm not sure whether it will be busy enough.

 

Can anyone advise me on what's it's like to work there? Are there long periods where nothing happens and your left twiddling your thumbs?

 

Is it busy enough during the night to be proactive?

 

Any responses would be greatly appreciated.

If you want to work in London, why don't you consider the Met?

What's the reason for you wanting to Transfer?

I can't say that I know an awful lot about COLP, but what I can say is that they often pop in and out of the Met boundaries, especially their specialist units as we have a good working relationship with them so it's not like there is a hard geographical boundary. However, whenever I've been through the City late at night or on the weekend even during the day, it can be very dead at times as it is primarily business orientated area. It might be worth taking a trip down there to see it for yourself.

I am considering the Met however, I'd only look to move there once I had a standard course.

I don't have any burning desire to move from where I am at the minute. I know a colleague who has moved to CoLP but they were unhappy where they were. I'm just after another opinion from someone who is already there and can tell me what it's like.

Out of interest Grumeister did you get any reply? 

Any idea what response looks like in CityPol? 

Do they keep all investigations and crime allocations or do they handover? 

I've got no active plans to leave where I am but my financial costs are going up considerably rather than down and I'm not long to reach the top of the payscale... The extra 4.5k might very well ease my personal strains so if be interested to hear how things are. I've got loads of ins at the Met but I don't know anyone in CityPol.
