COMMANDER, Public Corruption Unit (Former Employee), Fort Lauderdale, FL – November 24, 2013
Pros: outstanding staff of investigators
Cons: the ineptness of working jointly with prosecutors and other investigative agencies.
A typical day at work encompassed giving analytical and managerial support to a group of self motivated detectives by encouraging them to proactively address issues that could involve violations of both state and federal laws engaged in by public officials. I was given the ultimate authority by upper management to open and investigate cases that possessed prosecutive potential without having to discuss these matters with my superiors before initiating an investigation. The most difficult part of my position was convincing a prosecutor, may it be state or federal, to give us the tools to solidify successful prosecution. The most enjoyable part of my position was to work with a group of dedicated professionals motivated to serve the public's interest.
