This can be a great place to work at times, for the right person. For the most part you work at your own pace and are free to fill your shift with whatever it is you like to do in between responding to calls. It's a smaller department, so you won't be going to call to call constantly, but the large casinos and hotels do provide some call variance. You are able to conduct a lot of your own investigations and relax during your down time.
The pay is among the best you will find in the state if you can handle the commute and the slow pace of the department. Benefits are excellent, city will match 12% 401k/457 for retirement, more paid time off then you know what to do with. Health, dental, and vision are all great as well.
Currently, our first line supervisors are struggling and are the biggest issue with the department at the moment. None of them have any leadership experience prior to being promoted and have very little if any law enforcement experience outside of this department.
Great potential here with some fresh management. The commute is what it is, that isn't going to change.
