    Gaithersburg PD

    Any details about the Gaithersburg PD? Pay, OT, training, etc? Their site seems to be very limited.

      John from MD just said in the post above you about GCP..."Gaithersburg PD is an excellent department with a large and active jurisdiction. Specialized units include detectives, narcotics canine, street crime, and traffic. At least one officer is a member of the decentralized element of MCPD SWAT. They do have a takehome car program. I believe there has been some movement on improving pay and benefits, but I'd check with them to be certain. Issue weapon is the SIG 229. Patrol rifle is the HK G36 (if I recall my designations correctly). Tasers are widely deployed. I believe GPD works ten-hour fixed shifts"

      To add to that, yes they work 4, 10 hour shifts, usually the same schedules as the county police, and are on the county police radio. They have excellent and top notch equipment in the cars and on their persons. I have dealt with a lot of their officers in the past (working security) and enjoyed dealing with all of them. They all seem to love the department, with the only downfall being there is no retirement pension, only 401K and so forth. Their training is usually at Montgomery County Police Academy, but they also go to Univ. of Maryland's academy or Howard County's. They usually hire certified officers but have recently opened up for entry-level.

        One thing that will get you nowhere, usually is looking at an Agencies Website. Best thing to do, is either go in person to talk to someone or to call and ask to speak to a Recruiter, etc. Too many applicants focus on the internet as their tool for info on jobs, etc. My suggestion is to either call or go in person to the department.
