The CPD - a once proud department

Detective (Current Employee) Chicago, IL

ProsIf you like having a real impact on people's lives this is the job for you. No two days are alike. The pay is good (unless you're getting shot at, spit upon, cursed, sued, or indicted). Great people to work with and lots of fun. Occasionally someone will say thank you.....that makes it all worthwhile.

Cons....getting shot at, spit upon, sued, or indicted....you really can't understand it unless you've been there. The biggest con on this job is the total lack of support from the upper echelon within the department and the city officials

Advice to Senior ManagementHang your collective heads in shame. You now have the police department you asked for. To the good citizens of the city.....arm yourselves!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
