I worked at Racine County Sheriff full-time (More than 8 years)
Management generally cared about employees and there was a good working relationship. Co-worker comaraderie was generally excellent and they looked out for each other.
Going to far outside of the "that's how it's always been done" or "that's how everyone else does it," right or wrong results in serious pushback. Serious suggestions for improvement get blocked because of fear of change.
Advice to Management
Don't be afraid to be a leader and try some new things.
