  • Middle TN: Anyone work for these departments?

    I currently work for Kingsport PD, but my wife just accepted a job in Brentwood, so we are going to be moving next month. Right now I'm going to apply at these departments:

    Brentwood
    Smyrna
    Franklin
    Hendersonville


    Does anyone work for any of these departments or have any info about them? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

      Yeah I have Metro in the back of my mind. I'd prefer to work for a smaller department, but if nothing pans out I will probably apply with Metro. How's the testing process been thus far?

        I know that Brentwood and Franklin have been hiring pretty regularily so keep chekcing with them. If you intend on living in the Brentwood/Williamson County area, Hendersonville would be a hike to get up to everyday.

            Smyrna is actually hiring right now, though the deadline to apply is Monday (the 16th). However, you can e-mail your application into them, just check out their website.

            Brentwood just did testing last month, but you never know, they may start again soon.

            Metro still takes awhile to do the process....at least they get the long part out of the way first though (the backgrounds).

              I work for Franklin. We're going to be hiring a lot of people this year (we just offered 11 people jobs and probably need about 20-30 more) as we're already short staffed and getting more positions in the budget. If you have any specific questions, I'd be happy to answer them.

                Smyrna Pd

                Try Smyrna.

                They just promoted from within a new chief.

                The city is progressive, lots of retail construction, lots of family frendly type parks and reasonable housing prices.

                They have their own general sessions court, so no trips to RCJ unless needed. They are annexing and growing. They have a Patrol Sgt really pushing for 4 ten hour days, takehomes after about 2 years.

                But they start at $38000!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!

                  $38,000 sounds pretty good starting out compared to the pay in East TN. Probably 90% of depts. here (maybe higher) start around the 23-26,000 range.

                              I work for Hendersonville. Greatest department around as far as I am concerned, I am a little biased though. Hendersonville would put you about 30 minutes away from Brentwood. So, I can tell you anything you are interested in knowing about HPD, what do you want to know? I know we are hiring, we have been starting a new class every other month for a while now.
