Probationary Police Officer (Former Employee), New York, NYMarch 8, 2015
The workers belittle people and think all the PPO's are liars. If you are injured and seem weak the officers in the gym will not help you.

Pros: law enforcement experience
Cons: no pay
Great program to become involved in, if you are thinking about becoming a police officer. If you are undecided about a policing career, then this is the right program for you. You will work with police officers and actually get to wear a similar uniform and patrol your neighborhood. Great experience.

Great place to work
Police Officer (Current Employee), Brooklyn, NYFebruary 15, 2015
Pros: the respect is there for the most part, people place our trust in us.
Cons: arresting people for domestic violence, than find my self being kick in the growings by the wife, because the wife is a victim and is unaware of it.
Police work is not for everyone. A person need to wear many hats, at any giving time to get the job done. One must be very persuasive, and very convincing in order to last for a very long time.

20 years of Service
Detective (Former Employee), New York, NYFebruary 12, 2015
Pros: exposure to crime
Cons: service to community
20 Years of service with the New York City Police Department afforded me the opportunity to acquire various investigative skills. Courses provided insight on many areas of investigative work.
Working together with co-workers was essential for good work product and safety. The hardest part of the job was having to experience various areas of criminal activities and having to arrest persons that have committed those activities.
The most enjoyable part of the job was interacting and being of service to the community.

Experience beyond belief
Lieutenant (CDS) O.C.I.D (Former Employee), New York, NYFebruary 11, 2015
Pros: experience
Cons: greatest position in the department
The NYPD provided me the some of best and worst days of my life. The training and experience afforded me in my twenty-two years have prepared me for the next chapter in my life.
My days were mostly directed at investigation and personnel issues.
As part of management, I was given the chance to understand the perspectives of both the highest and lowest ranking personnel.
The hardest part of the job, like most, can often be the long hours. After time, eight hour days seemed like a half day at work, however, even the longest days seemed to fly by.
I enjoyed every aspect of the NYPD, but mostly the chance to lead teams of people to achieve great outcomes.

My daily duties included an overall scan of all news media outlets, on anything that was related or mentioned about the institution; scheduling appointments for media personnel; attending several media events; assisting in multiple small projects.
