    Pros

    Well Paid,good time off.Its a honour to serve the public.At the end of the day you feel you have made a difference in keeping the community safe.

    Cons

    The Executive Command team are on a mission to demoralize older workers .Older well experienced proven people are being overlooked for promotion so that minorities and females can be advanced through the ranks.Evaluations no matter how good are never read and a lot of the senior officers now are taking the same position as the Chief.Hopefully this will change since the Chief is retiring this December.Time will tell.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not be so eager to throw away your experienced people.For the police board. Pick a Chief that will respect his employee's young and old and not just pay lip service to it.For the Police Board go out and speak to the older officers on the road and in specialty units to find out what is really happening and the lack of respect they have for the Chief.

    Pros

    Good benefits and a good salary.Satisfaction of helping the public in their time of need.The feeling of making the world a better place.

    Cons

    Lack of respect for older workers that have built this organization.The Executive Command Team wants to promote younger workers that are not ready for promotion.The push is to promote women and ethnic minorities that are not ready and do not have the skills.They then have the older workers train them and back them up.This causes nothing but grief for the older supervisors training these people and lack of respect .I feel the chief should always be brought in from another law enforcement organization as he carries no baggage with him and brings in fresh ideas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect your older workers that have built this organization.In time younger workers and minorities will be at that level of competence and thats when you should be promoting them.The employee evaluation system is flawed and needs to be re written.At this point in time the evaluation system is worthless as the Chief makes the final decision on promotion.

    Pros

    Benefits package,wages and a sense that you are trying to make the world a better place.

    Cons

    The Executive command team have little respect for the long term officers that have built this organization.In an effort to have the orgainization better reflect the racial mix of the communities we serve minorities and women are being fast tracked for promotion leaving long term competent and capable members feeling betrayed and worthless. Members being passed by for promotion then are relied upon to train their bosses.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect your employees...and promote people who are capable of doing the job.Minorities and women will advance in the orgainization when their time comes.By turning your back on senior people moral suffers as does work performance.It also sends the wrong signal to recently hired officers who question why the senior peple are being ignored for promotion.
