Pros: great health insurance.
Cons: complete lack of leadership support, low pay, no raises, very little overtime, micromanagement from the highest levels of the organization, zero flexibility.
Not a good police department. Management is more concerned with bike thefts than public safety. We get paid 20% less than surrounding agencies, and I have only gotten one raise in the 5+ years I've been working here;all of my performance evaluations are satisfactory or higher. I take home less money now than when I started. Horrible, micromanaging leadership, – more... and abysmal moral. I am actively trying to leave; along with many of my coworkers. The benefits are quite good, but you will get the same benefits with any other department; so that aspect is negated for comparison. I give the job two stars overall instead of one solely because the state health insurance is so good. The department and its managers deserve a 1. – less
