Derbyshire Police were swamped with phone calls last night from thousands of people wanting to become officers.
The force is planning to recruit 60 new people and yesterday set up a special phone line to field calls from applicants.
So if this many people want to join the police force the benefits for working within the police cann’t be that bad. So why are they protesting? The fact is they like all other public sector workers have had it too easy for too long!
