Pros

Regular officers treat civilians very well, the higher up you go in the food chain the worst you are treated. DC37 is a joke when it comes to protecting your rights.

Cons

Definite racial differences, it is sad that it took working here to be treated badly based on my race.

Advice to Management

Civilians are just as important as the Uniformed members of the department.

    Pros

    It depends on what part of the department you work for. If you are off patrol and out of a precinct it is usually very satisfying. The thing is that you must get in the supervisors good side by being a good compliant employee and do what you are told without complaint. Then when you have a good reputation put in to transfer to a more satisfying position. after 5 years 26 vacation days a year, unlimited sick leave, and 12-18 extra days off each year.

    Cons

    If you are on patrol you are treated terribly and are expected to do more and more but remember if you can hold out 5 years or so of aggravation it just may pay off

    Advice to Management

    Go on patrol and see how things have changed you can't write summonses when there is no crime
