  • Allen PD

    Any thoughts on this department? I read somewhere that they are not civil service but after talking to a DPD guy, being civil service isn't a safety net like here in louisiana. Does anyone have any info about Allen PD? Shifts, morale, etc?

    Allen PD just got a new chief. From what I have been told, the new chief is very pro-officer. Allen PD may not be civil service, but their new chief supports them getting it.

    I believe Allen moved from 10-hour shifts to 12-hour shifts.

    In short, like every other agency, Allen PD has it's pros and cons, but overall it's a good place to work.

        Just to clarify, or maybe confuse the issue more, while Dallas is "civil service" its also not really. They have their own version of civil service, true civil service cities are governed by chapter 143 of the local government code. Dallas is not, therefore they can get away with a lot more than a 143 city can. One such example is denying step increases, my city cannot block step increases. The list goes on and on.

        Civil service isnt complete protection, but dont use Dallas as a measuring stick.

          Yes, nothing visible while wearing a short sleeve shirt. If you have lower leg ink, you'll be unable to wear shorts on duty.

            Allen and Plano are very nice towns. I would definitely work and live there. Allen has great equipment and pay.
