Lots of new challenges and lots of benefits (if it's like NSW). They paid for most of my studies and paid me lots on overtime!

Hi Fury Chick, I totally agree with Nuts351, I left the job about 25 years ago and am still getting benefits from it. I left there and started my own business. I made more money from my business but also had a lot more stress. NSW has (at least had) great conditions and benefits - maybe you should have moved south (although FNQ has better weather, better beaches, and better diving!)! :)

Not good at all. I remember my first year there - I did 68K for the year (and that included a 7 week strike without pay!). That was nearly 30 years ago. Spent time at Long Bay (Male max. security), Mulowa (Female max. security), then into Head Office. Funny thing is that I had less hassles in the prisons than in HO! Still reckon it was a great job.

Classic.... You're an ex-keeper and I'm an ex-catcher :)

I left WAPol just over 5 and a half years ago and haven't looked back. Went into Fed govt and my pay went up 25%, plus international travel :)

Still working in Forensic and still loving it :)

An ex-copper call 'trusty"!!! LOL :D

I also had a short stint in the NSWPS - seconded there as a weapons/riot trainer. Glad to leave there - some of the guys in SWAT are totally mad! Best thing I did though was to leave the public service and start my own business (didn't make any sense doing it at the time, but worked out really well).

My son-in-law works for the Fed Govt - I agree with you - good pay and benefits.

Hey everyone, I’m in Canberra. I reckon given the lack of aftermarket parts and the huge cost to get any from the states mean most Fury owners in Aus don’t join or contribute to forums much. I’ve had a hell of a time trying to get stuff myself. How have the rest of us Aussies faired?
