Company Culture

Employees I work with are very nice, everyone gets along well.

Overall compensation for your work

Compared to other cities in my area, I feel our starting rate of pay for my specific job grade is on the lower end

Challenging Work

Some days can be stressful depending on the amount of calls/emergency situations that are happening at one time.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I would make sure that computer systems and office equipment is more updated and functionally properly.

What I like about the company

Employees are always looking out for each other.

What I dislike about the company

I wish that my company would be a little bit more competitive with starting rates of pay.

Suggestions for improvement

  • No real ideas for improvement. It would be nice to expand the building as we have grown out of the current work spaces. Better communication in all directions and between different positions.

What I like about the company

Great comraderie, room for lateral movement within the department, most supervisors are supportive and knowledgeable, the chief and captains are superb.

What I dislike about the company

The “my way or the highway” attitude of superiors. The armchair quarterbacking by superiors with little current patrol experience.
