    I have been working at Fort Bend County Sheriff

    Pros

    Positive interactions with the local community. Good way to get experience in law enforcement while deciding if you want to make it your career as well as making sure this is the right agency for you. Ability to quickly transition into a paid deputy status, if desired. Able to work within various divisions, particularly if already experienced. Not as strict about minimum time like other agencies. Leadership values...

    Cons

    As a reserve deputy, none that are major standout issues other than it can be expensive to purchase all of the equipment necessary for the job. Those purchases are the responsibility of the individual, not the agency.

    Advice to Management

    No advice at this time other than possibly try to obtain more individual officer equipment.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Fort Bend County Sheriff full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    Usually have the most current and up to date equipment. Depending on what division or rank, they offer a take home vehicle program.

    Cons

    Extremely low pay, too much micromanaging, no leaders only supervisors, bc the Sheriff is an elected office, you can never effectively do your job for fear of "voter" complaints and constant catering to citizens (above normal). No room for advancement and still the "good ole boy" way of advancing. They are civil service but it offers zero protection against wrongful write ups and/or termination. Again, most importantly...

    Advice to Management

    Go head to head with the commissioners court to fix the embarrassing pay and also create a positive and employee appreciative work environment.
