I’ve been a dispatcher with the Metropolitan Police Service in London for eight years, and I can honestly say that no two days have ever been the same.
Making a Difference
I love my job for a number of reasons: the people I work with, the opportunities it has given me and for knowing that every day I have made a difference to someone’s life.
In the past 18 months, I have dealt with the London Riots, held the Olympic torch, worked the Queen’s Jubilee celebrations, gained a new qualification and been issued a commendation for my work.
Even after the most stressful days, I still look forward to coming in for my next shift and seeing what the people of London have for us!

I’ve been working for the Met for eight years, and started my career working at a small borough called Kingston-Upon-Thames. I now work mostly on a bigger and busier borough in SE London called Croydon. I live in Surrey with my Police Officer partner (yes, we met through work!) and we’re due to get married in June 2013.
