    I worked at Jacksonville Sheriff full-time

    Pros

    Doing police work and actual GOOD for the communities in which you work is fulfilling. Camaraderie with officers you work with.

    Cons

    Politics, "buddy-buddy" promotion or assignment selection, and immoral actions of appointed staff get brushed under the rug while any violation by patrol officers results in discipline and often loss of job.

    Advice to Management

    Change the promotion test process, the advancement to the rank of detective process, and discipline the appointed staff with the same vigor as you do patrol to maintain good morale and ethical activity by all employees.
