Support from management
There is a lot of support from the first line supervisor and a small group of upper management. However, senior administration will out right lie to you.
You will get a tremendous amount of support from people there and I always felt safe.
The department is small enough where you will hear everything.
Do not make any waves or disagree with senior management publicly or you will be crushed.
Attitude towards older colleagues
Age does not matter. As long as you are a proactive employee who takes his calls, pulls their weight and will be ready to mix it up, you will be treated with respect.
There are many divisions and special duties that will give you experience in other careers in the future.
Overall compensation for your work
I accumulated sick time faster than any of my family accumulated vacation time.
I earned shift differential, longevity pay, double time and a half holiday pay, 4 hour minimum court pay, 4 hours minimum short shift pay and had the potential to earn unlimited overtime and extra duty pay.
Office / Work Environment
Over the past few years there has been very positive changes to this.
Cops do not believe in this nonsense.
You accumulate time off at an obscene rate so you can have plenty of time off.
Shifts and days off are bid for a year so you can always plan events.
I was treated very well with in the community. The community is small and it is important to remember to treat the members of the community well and it will be reciprocated.
It is a government union job, no one gets fired.
They have handicap showers in the employee locker room.
It is police work. Nothing is the same and it is always interesting.
What I like about the company
Best time of my life. I came away from that career with more life experience than most people gain in two lifetimes.
What I dislike about the company
Being told one thing and then having the opposite done to you. Outright lies by administration.
