Hi guys, PSNI mean anything to you? Well it's the Police Service of Northern Ireland, and I really like the look of them. Unfortunately I'm from England so this would mean a large amount of movement however I know a few people in Belfast who would hopefully put me up for a little while till I found a full on place of my own.
You may be wondering why would someone from England want to join the PSNI so I will pros and cons, what I basically want you guys to do if that is OK is give me advice on the decision of trying to pursue PSNI and any relevant information, so here we go....

PROS:
Interesting line of what in a culturally diverse area!
High chance of development within interesting roles.
Seems more interesting and community orientated then the English Police.
More of a challenge, they work in tougher situations constantly.
A big city will feel slightly like a community which I like the sound of a lot!

CONS:
Far away from home, and I mean FAR. 7 hrs and 15 mins on a plane to be precise!
Working in an area I don't know very well.
Long hours - But I can combat them easily!


So, do you guys think giving the PSNI is a good idea, and if you've any advice on them then please lave a comment, all replies will be greatly valued.

Good luck if you apply! IIRC they closed their recent recruitment drive 2 months back I think.

Keep in mind the biggest difference for getting in is that the fitness standards are MUCH MUCH MUCH higher. You will also be armed.
Working as an Officer in England won't be that much difference from PSNI so if you are concerned about travelling too far just consider the 43 Forces in England/Wales.
