    Pros

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

    Cons

    never 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I have been working at City of Lubbock, TX Police Department full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Best 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.

    Cons

    Very 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 ManagementAdvice

    Please 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.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    The 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 ManagementAdvice

    Management 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.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    During 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 ManagementAdvice

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