Cut and paste ya, but read this out.
All of you, or at least most of you, bitch and complain about cops and tickets and what not, but one has to admit it's a friggen TOUGH job and somebody has to do it. How would any of you guys like to go to a job every day in which possibly half the population really doesn't like you?
That being said, it's HIGHLY unfortunate (the conditions described in the article about more than half wanting to quit but still feeling they have to remain devoted to 'the force' ) because if so many cops are of such a split-mind attitude ... then that would go a long way to explain how (the quality and attitudes of) policing has changed so drastically in the recent few decades.
60% of B.C. RCMP staff considered quitting
Most RCMP still report pride, satisfaction in work, staff survey says
The RCMP are responsible for the majority of policing in B.C. (CBC)
An RCMP staff survey suggests nearly 60 per cent of officers and staff in B.C. considered quitting the force last year because of frustrations in the workplace, lack of recognition, and unrealistic expectations.
Nearly 40 per cent of staff also reported they would either recommend against — or have doubts about recommending — an RCMP career to others.
The survey also found only about 20 per cent of staff felt their supervisors, managers and leaders were well prepared, capable and had the right competencies for their positions.
But the report also found that 92 per cent of employees were committed to making the RCMP successful, 85 per cent were proud to be an employee, and 77 per cent thought the RCMP was overall a good place to work.
The internal staff survey is done every two years by the RCMP. The latest was done in 2009 and covered the 2,569 employees within B.C.
The results were obtained through an Access to Information Act request and posted online by the Vancouver Sun newspaper.
so .... have at it and post your comments, good or bad ... as long as they contribute to the discussion and don't 'bash' anyone ...
