I believed I have a high chance entering as SPO as I told them I have to enter training ASAP due to my marriage next year. So quite confident.

what I am unsure now is I have no support from my girlfriend to allow me to join.. So was very upset, she thinks that once I join police our relationship will strain, baby plans will stall and no time spend together after telling her the working shifts.

i Duno this kind of life will be how long because it takes about 3-4 years to do staff posting.?? No one knows.... And after staff posting working hours might be irregular too? I have many tonnes of questions and all these were being addressed before all the first few interviews.. but i wanna hear from a SPO or a regular here the lifestyle and whether can a regular upkeep his family ties and relationship.. Baby plans etc.

I heard especially IO tour is keep clearing cases and shift is also like junior PO?

say next year late wedding, training will disrupt my plans if unless I enter in August intake...

What if one day I wanna leave the force due to commitment to family, low progression and promotion, will I regret one day that my experience is irrelevant to outside world... So many worries.. Many ex officer went to crop security, compliance in Pte sector or even as some mgt level in Mindef or security related job but for sure their reason of leaving and get pay cut is due to?
Many said degree sign on is good..
Hi haiz2006,

You have also considered joining CPIB last year. Maybe check back to that thread where I made a post or two. https://forums.salary.sg/income-jobs/...-sector-2.html

Look within yourself and find out your motivations for wanting to join these law enforcement careers.

Is it to fulfill a childhood dream? Or to follow after the footsteps of a family member? Or are you thinking of the perceived job stability?

The fact that you are already considering the possible exit strategies means that deep inside you might not really want to make it your lifetime career.

If you are half-hearted, forget about it. And I mean it in a good way. Don't join the police and spend 80% of your working day thinking how to get out of it. Frankly speaking, if you speak with regular policemen, most of them wish they took a different path. But it is too late for change.

Even scholars regret choosing to work in the police. Except if you are a Police Scholar and/or President Scholar - in which case you are destined for "top management" with sideway movements to Admin Service and political positions.

Forget about the police. Forget about the civil service. Just go out and work somewhere, anywhere. Careers are not limited to being a fireman, postman, pilot or policeman. There are careers out there doing things you have never even heard of, and they offer reasonable pay and good advancement.

And never be tricked by a higher starting pay. I know the starting pay is very important to a fresh graduate. But people who have worked more years will tell you the starting pay does not mean anything. If you do a job you love, and you do it well, you will be surprised how much your boss is willing to increase your pay in order to keep you. And if you are in a niche market, your boss' competitors will also be happy to take you on with attractive terms.

Hi there. Pay may be good however, initially, ur work will be tough. Esp during the IO phase. Nxt phase, Team Leader. U have to do shifts. Ur responsibility will be high too. N be passionate abt ur job as being a police Inspector is a highly respected job.

Hi all,

Anyone kind enough to give latest payscale range from Insp to CP .
Did my NS in early 80's as NSPI, went to uni after ROD & choose another career path ..
Wonder if I've made a wrong decision ;-). Looking back, it was quite an experience

Thanks

Should I accept an offer as a Senior Police Inspector or an offer of being a General Education Officer?

Which one is better in terms of pay and progression?

2nd Class Honours Local NTU Engineering Degree.

Both are equivalent. Bonuses same. Benefits same. Civil service. But key is do you like to do law enforcement work more or teach more?

Does the ability to only achieve IPPT silver at best affect my promotions?

I am quite undecided which one I eventually will like more. Both sounds equally fun yet challenging.
