Dangerously Ineffective and unable to serve the public

Criminal Investigator (Former Employee)
Opelika, AL

I worked at Lee County Sheriff - Alabama full-time for more than 5 years

ProsTake home vehicle and generally good, capable coworkers at the entry level through middle management.

ConsVery expensive family health insurance with high deductibles, and no dental or vision coverage.

Lack of safety equipment.: Outdated protective vest and not fit tested properly, no protective mask or equipment for processing chemical labs.

Poor/unusable two way radios.

Lack of training/schools .

Lazy work environment.

Salary is in the lower 25 percentile nationally. Expect around $1900 a month for 65 hrs a week. No OT usually paid as comp time.

Over 20K warrants in backlog.

Sheriff salary is in the 80 percentile nationally while deputies salary is in 25th.

8 Deputies service apx 50k people which makes us ineffective.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet a new Sheriff. Focus on budget, personnel, and public service. Increase training.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
