Law enforcement career with lateral advancement opportunity
Police Officer I (Former Employee) –  Suffolk, VAJanuary 26, 2016
The City of Suffolk is a good place to start a law enforcement career. The pay good but not as much as the other Hampton roads cities. In the City of Suffolk Police Department you can expect good benefits and a good schedule. The only downside is that there are limited room for advancement and the management has stagnated.
Pros
good training
Cons
Not alot of room for advancement
