5,400 police officers have signed a petition which is opposing changes to the Met Police shift patterns.
The Met Police announced they had introduced a new shift pattern meaning officers will be forced to have their rest days cut by one.
The Met is forcing officers to work seven days on and three days off. Officers rest days will begin at 7am the morning officers begin rest days.
Officers fear they will see less and less of their family while being more exhausted. It is feared that if these changes are successful they will be rolled out across the UK.
