How are promotions handled at Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department?

Pros

Good benefits, good pay, stable job, can be exciting. Patrol was by far the most fun.

Cons

Incompetent supervisors, stupid policies, and ignorant public. Unfortunately, you are rarely, if ever, rewarded for hard work and competence in your area as there is no structure in place to do so. Promotions are done via department wide testing and do not take into account most experience. For instance, a patrol deputy who has written hundreds of search warrants, made hundreds of felony arrests, and worked at a busy station (say Compton because everyone knows Compton) has the same chance as making detective as a deputy who trained at Malibu, made no arrests, and has not written any search warrants. I do here the new boss is trying to rectify this. I really hope so.

Advice to Management

Stop basing policies on the politics of the ignorant and reward those deputies out there busting their hump to make the neighborhoods safer.
