Life of a Police Officer
Life of a Police Officer is Challenging -
because you have no schedule
because you have to do things spontaneously at times
because deadlines are always near
because you need to maintain a balance between work and family
because you need to entertain politicians too
because people and media will say that you failed
to prevent a crime that happened inside 4 walls of a house
because the force working under you is understaffed and over-burdened and lack motivation at times due to the same
because sometimes you are not able to do things no matter how hard you try, because crime won't stop happening
because rallies and processions will keep on happening, because the duties police does (as mentioned above), keep on increasing.
There will be times when people will point their fingers at you, but you cannot be demotivated, because policing never stops.
There will be times when even your good deeds will be questioned, but you cannot let that stop you.
There will be times when people will question the honesty of entire police fraternity when one of them does something wrong.
You have to run faster than Usain Bolt to catch criminals in situation, so you've to be physically fit.
You have to be able to sleep for only 2-3 hours for days at stretch (or have sleepless nights too at times) due to ground situations, and then still attend meeting the next morning.
You have to be able to look into the eyes of victims and assure them that things will be alright.
You have to have knowledge of science, forensics, mechanical engineering, management, history, geography, etc to handle situations at times.
You have to remember the CrPC and IPC in detail so that you don't commit any errors while doing your duty. Besides, you have to have knowledge of every minor act that is passed by Union as well as State government so that you prosecute criminals under correct Law and Correct Sections of the Law.
You have to listen to abuses of people even if 2 out of 1000 don't like the work that you're doing. more
