    I worked at DeKalb County Police Department full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Large department with many opportunities to gain knowledge and to advance. Continuing education is a must along with a proactive attitude. Training is excellent and they have good equipment.

    Cons

    The new command staff are not confident leaders. They worry about internal issues more than fighting crime. Not a lot of backing from supervisors.

    Advice to Management

    The people that are working in Dekalb are good people and not out to get your job. Back your people and put the emphasis on catching the bad guys. The blog should be ignored and all of the officers, supervisors and command staff should come together as one team.

    I have been working at DeKalb County Police Department full-time

    Pros

    One of the premier law enforcement departments in the Southeastern Regional. Competitive pay and great training department.

    Cons

    Bureaucracy is a major downside. Very political, even at the line level. Too many in-groups, and disciplinary actions are not distributed equally.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to revisit old policies and update them. Also, create a liaison between line level employees and management to provide transparency in the system. Overall, great organization with a storied history.
