Stories from those who serve.
Constable Craig Hunt has over thirteen years of policing experience with the EPS. Beginning his career in SW Patrol, before moving to Whyte Avenue Beats. Craig’s next role led him to the Recruit Training Unit for five years, before landing his current role in West Division beats.
“I think the thing I enjoy the most about working for EPS is the diversity and uniqueness of different calls for service that we attend. No day is ever the same and you never really know what you’re getting yourself into when you are dispatched to a call. The things I have seen and done over my short career are far beyond anything my imagination could have drawn up if I hadn’t been there and lived it myself. I decided to pursue a career in EPS because I wanted a career that challenged me and forced me out of the comfort zone I lived in” says Craig.
Craig offers the following for those considering a police career: “I always came back to the simple advice of believing in yourself and being confident in you. Be confident in yourself, your abilities, and most importantly be confident in knowing that you are the type of person that EPS needs. There is no “mould” for a successful police officer. We are most successful when we are made up of a diverse group of people offering different skills, perspectives, and personalities. Believe in yourself”
When Craig is off duty, he’s a busy family man with his wife and three daughters. He also noted, he’s a diehard Philadelphia Eagles fan!
