Pros

Good pay and benefits. Recession proof. Opportunities for change and growth.

Cons

Be careful. Politics within the organization is very much a factor with being looked upon by superiors if you will receive favorable status or not. Your job will be secure, as long as you don't do anything stupid; however, you need to be aware that it is very much a place where your career can be made or broken by saying or not saying the right or wrong thing.

Advice to Management

People make mistakes. This is a job that is stressful and unforgiving. As no actual laws are broken, advise and not criticize. Some of you made errors early in your career. Don’t go over-board. Talk with the officer and advise the correct coarse of action and why.

    You have no control what shift you will work and no control over the days off. NO holidays off eer inless it just happens to fall on your day off.

    Advice to Management

    You have to take a test and compet with 150 other officers and only 4 or 5 advance and then if you do advance you will be back on the bottom of the list for new days off.
