A good place to get your training and some experience, then move on

Criminalist (Current Employee)
Miami, FL

I have been working at Miami-Dade Police Department

ProsDecent pay
Good benefits including insurance and tuition reimbursement
Generous training, both in-house (Training Bureau) and out (federal training like FBI and equipment manufacturer's courses)
Respect for work-life balance makes it easy to get time off when needed
Very stable place to work, no layoffs

ConsYou get treated the same whether you go the extra mile or do the minimum
Some employees do literally nothing and management seems to not care
Promotions seem like they're decided in advance and interviews are done for show
No crosstraining or upward mobility--middle management is all relatively new to the position so it will be a long time before there are any management openings

Advice to Senior ManagementWe've got great equipment, make more use of the knowledge held by the people who work here.

Dreary

Law Enforcement Officer (Former Employee)

I worked at Miami-Dade Police Department

ProsExciting job, helping the public is rewarding.

ConsOld boys club alive and well.

Advice to Senior ManagementAppreciate the smart, dedicated officers, instead of promoting your pals. Would make for an excellent department. Give kudos to those who deserve it, not those 'in the know."

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
