    Pros

    Policing in DeKalb County for one year is like policing in LA for 3 years. The training and experience is second to none.

    I am prohibited by policy to publicly criticize the department

    Advice to Management

    It's not my place to do so.

    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.
