No experience pay, non-rotating shifts, females don't believe in equal work but surely want equal pay, MANY officer safety issues. Some leave officers open to civil liabilities while others leave us open to inmate suicides, escapes or physical harm. Very restrictive system. Having prior experience, I had expected the Dallas County Sheriff's Department to have a few more things in order and better defined than they do. The Detention section is one of the largest in the nation but it's still far behind the industry. Non-secure parking lots, no raises, low morale and inmates appear to have more rights and power than the officers themselves.
Steady work without layoffs, experience in the criminal justice insudtry.
Pay, raises, many safety concerns, minimal unity.
