    I worked at New York Police Department full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    You will meet a lot of new friends, as long as you show up and work, you will always have a job. Can semi retire after 20 yrs, and go on to a different career. Depending on your experience, there are many types of work (details)

    Cons

    You are a number. Most details depend on who you know. IF you do not have a family member that is high ranking, you can still go places, but you will have to woek very hard to get there. This can be a very dangerous job. At first, the pay is very low, and the hours you work could be very bad, unless you dont mind 8pm-430am with Tues and Wed off.

    Advice to Management

    Dont take everything so seriously. Just because you have rank, doesnt mean you have to be a mean person, or have to talk down to others, and it doesnt necessarily mean you are smarter than everyone else.

    I worked at New York Police Department full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Went on when I was twenty years old,,,,gave me the confidence to deal with any situation.

    Cons

    Not the same job,,use it as a stepping stone for a second career. Sit for one week in Supreme Court,,take in the drama and learn from it.
    Went to way too many funerals for friends.

    Advice to Management

    Zeros for heroes does not get you the stellar candidate nor does is keep your backbone,,your patrol force strong....we will always come to the aid of another cop,,,,but your numbers,,,,paying the rent......needs to change....
