    I worked at Colorado State Patrol full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great line level organization for an individual looking for a start in law enforcement.

    Cons

    Promotions are based on who not what you know. No clear mission. Pay is broken for long term employees over 3 years.

    Advice to Management

    Require college education for advancement.

    Pros

    1) The outstanding people (sworn and civilian)
    2) Fulfills a life calling in serving your fellow citizens
    3) Top notch weapons, uniforms
    4) Way ahead of the curve in technology
    5) Best arrest control system in the nation

    Cons

    1) State Budget Problems
    2) State freeze on pay increases for last 10 years have put a damper on morale
    3) Aging fleet of vehicles - not uncommon to have 100,000 mile cars on patrol in emergency driving situations
    4) Slow turnover at the top results in few promotional opportunities
    5) State mandated cap on employees results in approximately 50% of the employees necessary to do the job

    Advice to Management

    Work every day to provide a positive experience for the men and women under your command. Look for ways to reward initiative and hard work - since pay is frozen.
