    Anyone out there had an good input on this agency? I was reading on their web site the Success Action Plan implemented by the new Chief and it all sounds positive. Does anyone on this dept. feel that this is going as planned, and what are the opportunities there?

            Isn't that what you accept when you apply for a law enforcement job? I would see that as opportunity and exposure, not downfall, but I guess all perspectives are different.

                If you want to work for a department that is consistently dealing with shootings and other major crimes.. then this is the department for you. I hired a guy from there within the last year and he was more than happy to leave. When I spoke with his co-workers many of them said if they didn't have so much time in or in their specialized units they would be looking to leave as well.. You just gotta make your own decision on what you are willing to deal with..

                  True, I do agree w/you Dixie Belle. I am pursuing law enforcement after another long career, and one just has to be sure at this stage of their life as to where they wish to go. It's not a money issue with me at all, this is just something I have to do for myself. Where are you located? You can pm me with that should you care to.

                    I guess my years of experience in report writing has paid off... =)

                      just my .02 cents but if you want the "big department" feel and to work around a very urban envioroment why not look into where narco works over there in gwinnett. I would LOVE TO! They both have their own academy, both have their share of "hot calls" but all in all from people I have known to work at both of them, I have never heard of anyone saying " i can't wait to leave gwinnett" I can not say the same for dekalb. Plus gwinnet has some of the best equipement around. Just a thought...

I can't speak for DeKalb but I know a handful of APD officers who have left the department only to come back because they felt bored and micromanaged in the suburbs. Everyone is different so I guess it depends if you want the most action and the highest pay or newer equipment and nice buildings to train in.

                              I do appreciate everyone that has replied. I do want a more urban setting, and I'm not so worried about the $$$ because I am not pursuing this for that reason. Been in a career for over 20 years for that reason, and that's not why you should stay somewhere. Also, if I get the equipment needed to get the job done that will suffice. I just want this profession...period!
