It can be dangerious

General Clerk (Former Employee) Landover, MD

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

ConsRotating 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 Senior ManagementThe civilians are the cogs that keep the machine running. Oil them sometimes

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Overall good place to work

    Police Officer (Former Employee) Lanham, MD

    I worked at Prince George’s County Police Department full-time for more than a year


    Pros: Take home vehicle, overtime, secondary employment Cons: some supervisors lack leadership abilities and the abilities to train… Advice to Senior Management: Take more time developing a more in-depth training academy that focuses on what a young officer needs to know… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
