    I worked at Dallas Police Department-Texas full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The pay was good if you have a college degree. You get about $ 3,600.00 more per year. Good hours during the academy 8-5 Monday-Friday.

    Cons

    Too many rules, 6 inch packet just on the rules of the department (General Orders), 6 inch penal code book, several packets of papers to memorize daily, weekly exams, you are only allowed to score below 70% 2 times or you are terminated, you have to iron your uniform daily and make sure to have crisp lines which is beyond annoying. There are tons of things behind the scenes in this job that have nothing to do with police work. They will tell you the very first day and every day after that that most people will fail and it's a progressive school and it's going to be hard, etc., and it seems like they want you to fail rather than help you succeed. I want to work for a company where they help me succeed and guide me to success, and you won't find that at the DPD, unfortunately.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make life easier for the recruits, otherwise good people will continue to go elsewhere. The standards are too high.
