Company Culture

Very good pay and benefits.

Support from management

Our City Manager was great to work for. Had to be accountable to him but he never interfered with the police department.

Teamwork

Never had to worry about back up or assistance from any member of the department.

Freedom to work independently

Wrote my own policies and procedures, and was free to direct the department in any positive programs or ventures.

Internal Communication

13 Man 2 women Department with very good open lines of communications between all officers and administration.

Gender Equality

Of a 13 person department I have hired two females one officer and one civilian Community Service Officer. No problems at all with the working environment. I hired both women 9 years ago when I became Chief of Police.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Most officers judge others on their abilities and work ethic. Police work is very mental and somewhat physical. Older officers are treated with respect due to the ability to survive such a demanding career.

Career Development

Advancement is difficult in a small department. Our department consists of Chief, 3 Sergeants, Detective and 9 patrol officers.

Overall compensation for your work

I have made a comfortable living for my self and family.

Office / Work Environment

Never a problem.

Environmental Friendliness

Depending on the type of incidents you deal with many times dictates you mood.

Work-Life Balance

Police work is very demanding. Shift work and working holidays is a downside.

Company Image

The Latrobe Police Department is very well liked and respected throughout the area.

Job Security

There is always crime and safety issues. Most officers work beyond retirement age.

Handicapped Accessibility

Up to Federal Standards

Workplace Safety

Police work is dangerous. Our officers are provided with all of the necessary safety equipment and training.

Challenging Work

Police work is always changing and advancing. Keeping up with advancing technology and changes in laws is very challenging. The encounters with the public become difficult with the way police are now viewed in society.

Inclusive / Diverse

Qualifications and credibility along with ability to perform the job requirements.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Hire more officers

What I like about the company

Coworkers City Manager and the ability to run my department without outside interference.

What I dislike about the company

When politics try to enter in any police related matters.
