Police Officer (Former Employee), Portsmouth, VAMay 27, 2013
Fun job/ career. Administration is not supportitive of the officers. Terrible environment to want to be in or grow with. Recommend another city to work in.

Emergency Communications Dispatcher (Former Employee), Portsmouth, VAJanuary 15, 2012
Pros: sense of purpose and helpfulness
Cons: mandatory overtime, understaffed
If there was a way that I would've been guaranteed a day shift, I would've never resigned. I would recommend this job to anyone who loves the variety of no day ever being the same and pure adrenaline rushes on a consistent basis.
