San Jose was a great place for me to work. I had many different opportunities to expand my interests and desires. There is something for everybody once you finish with your probation period. The sky is the limit with a large department.
A great place to make a difference in some ones life.
Public service is a difficult job now these day.
The training staff there will help you pass the course, its up to you to do the rest. The experience I had while working there will be something I will keep with me as I move on, I learned a lot about myself, the community and law enforcement family.
Would you rate your company five stars?

I received a good hourly pay rate and I had an excellent supervisor. Job was only ten hours a week though. Job could be stressful due to having to control traffic and pedestrian flow. Parents were appreciative and children were enjoyable to work with.
Lots of time off
Not enough hours
There are several units that are available to officers. From flying a helicopter to investigating homicides. There is also room for promotions as the department expands.

The department was once the best in the nation. It needs to get back to that status.
Working with good people.
New benefits and retirement system
I enjoyed working for this company, the only reason I chose to leave this company was I had my second child, my daughter and I ended up moving with my immediate family (husband, son daugthter) to Michigan from California to pursue a career advancement for my husband's job.
