    Anybody from the PD or have a fellow LEO working the streets. Looking at doing a lateral. How is the department as a whole? Is it a Chief in the Trunk PD and does the Department back it's officers? Also what shifts does TP run?

    Thanks.

    I could help you out on the schedule part of your question. They're on 4/10s all based on seniority.
    4am-2pm
    8am-6pm
    2pm-12am
    12am-10am

      They have take-home cars if you live in town. I know a guy who seems pretty happy there. They are well paying, cover a big area, but they are a Chief-in-the-trunk department. They are a part of CALEA and stand by it 110%. You will document and report absolutely everything.

        Thanks Raiden and Southpaw for the info. I work in a "pro-police" department that has high crime. I have worked in a department that you had to look over your shoulder to see if you were going to be stabbed in the back by a fellow officer...Not fun.

        Also 10's would be hard to transition to as I work days now, and 10's are not the best when you have children in diapers.

                    In a busy place, it is generally good to have this type of overlap.

                      Coverage dear Watson. As opposed to being at minimums one day and it's crazy then being stacked the next day on the same shift and its dead.

                              I went to the academy with one guy. He said they had another one coming after we graduated.
