    Verry good training and coworker support. Good place to spend your working years

    Police Officer (Former Employee)
    Lubbock, TX

    Prosvery good training and supervisor support. Coworkers are like family. Never a dull moment. Every day is a new adventure. Pay is good enough.

    Consnever have holidays off and have to work in bad weather no matter how bad it gets. Have to deal with people from all walks of life.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStand behind your motivated employees and lead them in the right direction when they get off track. Quickly remove the bad apples.

    Great employees, poor management

    Officer (Current Employee)
    Lubbock, TX

    ProsBest people I have ever worked with, been here for many years and love working with these people. Great equipment and great benefits. Thankful for all the LPD has done for me.

    ConsVery poor management. From the first level supervisors and up only a few decent supervisors. Many of the supervisors treat their subordinates like crape when the subordinates are well trained and tend to know what they are doing. They are second guessed, micromanaged, and have a low moral. Over and over officers are targeted and punished. There are no rewards for hard work but getting knocked into the dirt. Productivity has suffered tremendously and moral is as low as it ever could be.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease please train your management on leadership and motivation. It seems you think that motivation is finding a mistake and then kicking them while they are down. Teach the guys and reward them for all the dangerous and hard work they do. Many of your managers don't lead and are scared to lead but will back seat quarterback all day, judging every thing a guy does on the streets with no though of how it will cause him to stop working out of fear. Everyone that works here knows that they must watch their back while at work or they will get stabbed from the department.

    Overworked due to constantly being short staffed.

    Dispatcher II (Former Employee)
    Lubbock, TX

    ProsThere are some pleasent co workers. The direct supervisors are fair. It is good compensation if you do not have a degree.

    ConsThe department is always understaffed. Management is not very competent. Employees quit on a regular basis because moral is low. There is a lot of mandatory overtime assigned, and you are on call 2 nights a week, minimum. You almost always get called in for at least one of them.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement needs to be more involved with the employees to really turn around the moral. You need to instill a positive workplace attitude that must come from the top. Trainers need to be trained.

    Fair place to work

    Dispatcher II (Current Employee)
    Lubbock, TX

    ProsLittle mandatory overtime but the opportunity for overtime for those who want it. Supervisors are fantastic and fair. Good pay for no degree.

    ConsDuring time of low staffing there is significant mandatory overtime (48-52 hour work week). Working weekends will be a must until you have significant seniority.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't sweat the small rules and find a way to increase moral. It does not always seem like the most fun place to work.
