Oh no, its the LAPD!

Police Officer (Current Employee) Los Angeles, CA

ProsA job you can be proud of, opportunity to explore hundreds of different jobs within the department, come in contact with people and places you would not normally encounter (usually avoid), great compensation for a job that requires no college degree or specific work skills/experience.

ConsYou have to work many holidays, weekends, and nights (although many people prefer to work at night). Patrol officers are the grunts of the department and more often than not are served the short end of the stick. You start to dread extended family gatherings and seeing old acquaintances because they always want to hear work stories. Department has created an unimaginable volume of paperwork to be completed for routine police work.

Advice to Senior ManagementStreamline all paperwork, eliminate code-7, allow people to test for sergeant without college credit.
