Police into Private Sector – TV opportunity
This message was originally posted by Angela Hackett on Linkedin. Angela is Professional Development and Performance Specialist – Career and Executive Coach and Counsellor with Police into Private Sector – PIPS.
I was called this morning by Lauren Hall from ITV news. Lauren is looking to speak to officers who have left policing mid-service. I have pasted her message below should you wish to contribute.
Warmest to all
Good to speak to you just now. As mentioned, I’m working on a report for ITV’s regional news programmes about police morale and the numbers of officers leaving the profession altogether.
The piece will include figures and look at reasons why officers are leaving – low morale, lack of support and concerns about physical and psychological welfare etc.
We are keen to speak with a former police officer who can tell us why they left and some of the challenges they faced while on duty. I wondered if you could put us in touch with someone who would be willing to talk about their experiences (the interview can be done anonymously if preferred).
We are aiming to do the interview early next week so we would be keen to confirm in the next day or so. If they are able to help, I can be reached on email@example.com or 07824334236.
Thanks again for all your help and please don’t hesitate to contact me if you need any further information.
