Great Career and Must Be Willing to Adjust Your Life

I highly recommend PGCPD to those serious-minded persons for policing. The Chief is excellent. Benefits & pay great. Exciting. Schedule tough on family-life and changes weekly. I would advise finding good help for children for very early hours and late hours and midnight shifts. This does not work so well for little children to adjust to let alone an adult. Stay in shape lest health and the streets get to you. There is no typical day other than the route you may take to get to work. The training is good. The retirement plan is excellent and I wish I could have stayed to complete it. I moved out-of-state.

Pros

Helping people, benefits, pay

Cons

Schedule changes weekly

Opportunity for growth and training.

There may be various work hours, but opportunities for overtime and additional approval to work for companies after normal duty hours are great benefits.

Pros

Helping your community be vigilant

Cons

Juggle court appearances, work schedules, and assignments can change
