Former Employee - Police Officer in Lanham, MD

I worked at Prince George’s County Police Department full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Take home vehicle, overtime, secondary employment

Cons

some supervisors lack leadership abilities and the abilities to train new officers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take more time developing a more in-depth training academy that focuses on what a young officer needs to know on the street. Do not fill up academy hours with pointless information that you will never use in your career.

    I worked at Prince George’s County Police Department

    Pros

    Stable Job
    Benefits
    No one over your shoulder
    You make the decisions
    Nights can be quiet
    Computers
    Television in your little glass cube

    Cons

    Rotating Shift Work (days, evenings, midnights)
    No where to go for help
    No training to speak of
    No place to advance
    Its dangerous when you have to tell violent criminals 'no you can not have your car because you do not have proper registration, insurance, and proof of ownership or a valid license' and all you have is a glass cube to protect you. They get very mad
    Civilians are the unimportant cog
    There is too much work for one person to do with 5 phone lines, a front desk, reports to file by *hand* and helping officers and investigators
    The pay is very low for the sheer volume of work you do and there are no bonuses because its a government job
    You have to actively find the answers to things and drag the information out of people
    You are that person that everyone knows is there but no one ever takes the time to meet or care about

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The civilians are the cogs that keep the machine running. Oil them sometimes
