    Changed for the worse. Terrible upper level managemengt.

    Police Officer (Current Employee)
    Las Vegas, NV

    ProsCo-employees at worker level are fantastic high quality individuals.

    ConsConmplete disconnect between upper management and where work takes place. Upper management exists in their own little bubble disconnected from the realities of police work. The beatings will not continue until morale improves as they could care less. Have no clue how their actions and decision making translates at the implementation level or are too arrogant to care. Absolutely NO concern for welfare of patrol. Management does not focus on crime and criminals but rather focuses on their own employees as criminals.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou have forced out or fired any independent thinking, moral, decision making management and replaced it with butt kissers and yes men who's whole goal in life is to get promoted. Nobody on the staff dares speak up to defend what is right, just or moral as it means career suicide. Your whole department is MISERABLE. Most employees speak only of getting out of here. I continually witness employees with less than 5 years speaking of getting out of here or how many years till they can retire. You have spawned crazed management hell bent on writing up, punishing and getting after your own employees as though they are some sort of problem. Frankly there is no advice that can be given to management that JUST DOES NOT GET IT and has formed their own realities to exist in. Through all the experience I have in management and I have a lot, I have allways learned the concepts of taking care of your employees, not abusing them.

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

    LVMPD Review

    Detective (Current Employee)
    Las Vegas, NV

    ProsBig department, many different specialized units. Decent opportunities for career growth. The pay is decent for law enforcement jobs. Hiring is getting ready to slow down.

    ConsHuge budget cuts due to problems in Las Vegas. Job satisfaction can depend a lot on your chain of command.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFind ways to value your employees. Develop better incentives for good work. Set standards and eliminate those who refuse to meet them.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    A Great and rewarding career.

    Police Officer (Current Employee)
    Las Vegas, NV

    ProsOne of the top departments in the country. Some of the best training and high stress on officer safety. Very challenging work but great rewards serving the public and the community. Great rewards also with pay and benifits, best in Nevada + No Social Security or State tax. Four 10-hour days schedule, sharp uniforms, professional peers and experienced and motivated supervisors. What's better than working overtime at many of the special events hosted in Las Vegas, see world class entertainment while getting paid, for free.

    ConsUnderstaffed for a growing city, but the department is growing to catch up and it's almost there.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work, and keep hiring.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
