    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Joliet Police Department full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great people and great benefits.

    Cons

    The Chief is over managed by the city politics.

    Advice to Management

    Let the Chief run the department not City Hall!

    I have been working at Joliet Police Department

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are some of the best in the state, maybe even the country. Take home car program (after 3 years approx on the job) is a nice perk. Usually an abundance of available overtime and extra jobs that can be worked through the department.

    Cons

    Residency requirement... Must live in the city. The city really doesn't have many nice places (in my opinion) to live. The city is very blue collar. If you didn't grow up here, your probably not going to "get it." Very much a culture of being proud of being a dirt bag. Nicer communities (with lower crime rates and better schools) are close by but you can't live there.

    Advice to Management

    I would prefer to have a working jail instead of letting all misdemeanor arrests go on their promise to show up for court. Not sure if that's even something that can be changed by our leadership.
