    Pros

    The only pros I can think of are the benefits and pension..

    Cons

    They didn't train me AT ALL the first 4 months. I sat in my cubicle listening to music and doing crosswords... may sound great for some people but I come to work to do work... Management only cared about themselves and complained about the workload and would not train me and the 4 others who started the same time as me.

    Pros

    Pay, benefits, if your looking for a career.

    Cons

    Very uptight people to work with. Would not recommend this department. Many officers are horrible coworkers, also their recruitment process is a joke. Only apply if you want to be treated like a pesant. They act high and mighty but are frauds behind closed doors.
