    I have been working at DeKalb County Police Department full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The department has several areas in which to gain different kinds of police experience.

    Cons

    Sometimes it's hard to transfer to other positions unless you know someone already there who can vouch for you. Also disciplinary action is not consistent.

    Advice to Management

    Be fair at all times.

    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.
