Great team environment and advancement oppotunities
Police Officer (Former Employee) – Odessa, TX – November 5, 2016
I worked for the police department for 2 years; the only reason I left was to further my education. The advancement opportunities in the Police Department are great, and there are so many different areas in which to serve. The people of OPD were and are great, and promote not only a team atmosphere, but a great family atmosphere. Specifically for the police department, the salary continues to be competitive, and they have instituted a take home car program. The current mayor of Odessa is a great man whom I know pwlersonally, and is very pro-police. The police department also enjoys a great relationship with Odessa Fire/Rescue, the Ector County ISDPD, the Hospital District PD, the UT System Police Department at UT-Permian Basin, and other local, state and federal agencies in the region, so there is a lot of interagency cooperation. It's one big family, and the people are great!!!
