Rewarding and satisfaction fulfilled twenty year career
Police Officer (Former Employee), New York, NYSeptember 27, 2014
Everyday was different over my twenty year career as a NYC Police Officer. I never had the same day twice, typical days did not exist. I learned how to adapt and how to handle extreme situations with certainty and confidence. As a Police Officer in NYC I worked in many different work environments, sometimes extremely hostile environments which called – more... for very intense concentration and extreme sensitivity. I found supervisors within the department to be fair ,understanding and very willing to help in a difficult situation. I always considered my co-workers to be my family. Without each other we could never perform our jobs with the skill that was needed.The hardest part of my job was not being able to help everyone all the time.The most enjoyable part of my job was being able to help a lot of people most of the time. – less

Very challenging work environment with quite rewards of having a direct imprint on the general safety and security of the general public and locations
New York City Police Detective (Former Employee), New York, NYAugust 2, 2014
Pros: direct imprint on society as a whole.
Cons: personal safety was always a concern as it relates to one's personal family life.
There were no typical days at work. Each day presented all new challenges. The learning curve is fast paced, varied and dynamic. The combination of City, State and Federal experience has given me unique inter-personal skills, the ability to manage others, a specialized knowledge of security and law, plus achievements in areas of patrol procedures, undercover – more... and surveillance operations, criminal investigations and the management of HIDTA operations systems. The most challenging part of the job was gaining the ability to not personalize any situation. The most enjoyable part of the job was concluding with the knowledge that despite the outcome, your efforts has made society and the general public's overall environment better. – less
