The job of a police officer is a highly visible, critical public safety job. Fulfilling the responsibilities of the job requires you to remain calm in the face of danger, be restrained in your actions and constantly concerned with the welfare of others. A police officer is a role model.
Both your personal and official life and affairs must be conducted in an exemplary manner. You must make a commitment to the profession as the work requires long hours; many times working weekends, holidays and/or night shifts which may restrict normal social relations.
