Pros

the benefits are excellent, there is a lot of room for advancement and you may retire in 20 years with your benefits for life

Advice to Management

many of the upper management have been out of patrol cars for many years and there is a feeling that they are disconnected

    Pros

    The work environment was really laid back and easy going.
    The salary was hourly and I thought that it was decent.

    Cons

    Not challenging work.
    Didn't really gain much experience or learn much from this internship.
    Most of the time I was bored.

    Advice to Management

    I think that the New York City Police Department could enrich the internship experience more if they let the intern know what sort of work they do and have them partake in iti.


  2. "Can hardly call it "work""

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    If you join because you are interested in police work, the time will fly by, and it will hardly seem like work. The reality is ten times more interesting and absorbing than any TV show.

    Cons

    You are doing a tightrope walk all the time, and the consequences of an honest mistake can be huge, to yourself or others.

    Advice to Management

    Compstat is a fabulous concept, but so is treating all colleagues with respect, especially in front of others. If you combined the two you would have an even better system.
