Suggestions for improvement

  • Managers should learn the work so that they can understand situations when the arise. They don’t know how to delegate the work to entrust the staff to do their jobs. They dictate every little thing. They do not know how to empower their employees. If I was allowed to promote as manager I would empower my employees.

What I like about the company

The work is interesting and makes the day go by quickly. The really like the people I work with. Even though the management team micro manage, they are still nice people.

What I dislike about the company

Upper management treatment of their supervisors. The do not let us do our jobs. We try to have a voice but it is usually not listened to.

Suggestions for improvement

  • As a governmental agency, we often are forced to use low bid items and have to make do with inferior products. In some cases, it cost more once it is determined the cheapest system did not work and had to be replaced. Police safety equipment should be exempt from the bid process.

What I like about the company

I can work anywhere in the State of California. The opportunities are endless. I am a female sergeant, I’ve always have been treated equally. We embrace diversity in our organization and demand honesty and integrity from our employees. We are paid to attend one of the finest police academies in the world for 6 months. Once we graduate, we become sworn peace officers. One of our mottos is “Earn the badge every day!” We treat those we help with dignity and fairness. Due to our outstanding reputation, we enjoy public support and backing. Folks are happy when we arrive because they know they will receive the finest service and care. I feel good when I go home after work because I know I’ve made our state a little better.

What I dislike about the company

Nothing comes to mind. I do not disapprove of anything.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I believe more conversations with the community and media can show us to be on a more positive lens.

What I like about the company

My managers give me the opportunity to challenge myself on projects. This helps improve my analytical skills, as well as giving me a chance to understand the operations and processes of my department. This knowledge helps me stand apart from my peers.

What I dislike about the company

There is a poor conception of law enforcement among the community and citizens. This negativity affects nonuniform employees as well as the law enforcement officers. We are doing our best to help the people and the community, but the appreciation is not always expressed by the media and the community.
