    Pros

    Professional work environment, excellent pay and off duty work availability, friendly coworkers, good benefits, many training opportunities, good tuition reimbursement for continuing education, wide variety of citizen contacts from transients to college professors

    Cons

    Management is very young and inexperienced, lack of communication between managers currently an issue, confusion about what supervisors are in charge of tasks or operations, mandatory for officers to work some holidays like new years eve, 4th of July, etc..

    Advice to Management

    Improve communication channels, incorporate more planning in projects, operations and policy changes to prevent confusion among employees, designate clear command structure for operations involving multiple supervisors

    Doesn't Recommend

    I worked at Tempe Police Department full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Smaller department which means you know most everyone, making working with other units very enjoyable.

    Cons

    Just because it is a smaller department doesn't mean there aren't big department politics. The same favorite people get selected for special assignments and get promoted.

    Advice to Management

    Stop managing by emergency and managing by fear of the media.
