    Learn a lot very quick with a good variety of calls, decent pay and benefits. Young department and advancement is fast. If you don't stay, other departments hire quick because of the experience.

    Down side, extremely busy with no time to really handle calls properly. End up handling the same people over and over. Burnout can be quick handling 20-35 calls a shift depending on district and sector. Mayor thinks he is police commisioner.
    In God we trust, all others are run MILES and NCIC.

        Baltimore City has one of the worst work schedule's I've ever seen if it's still that ridiculous 6on 2off for like 6 or 8 weeks and then the 5x3 for two weeks.
        Horrible!

          There are places with far better pay, equipment, schedules, and leadership but I don't know if they have as much fun.
          Only a dead fish floats with the current.

            Well in measuring departments I am trying to decide if I should apply in Baltimore or keep with the process in Washington DC

              A Baltimore recruiter told me last week that the process can be done very quickly. He also said it is on a case by case basis but that most applicants can be processed fairly quickly. I am in process with both and MPDC keeps asking me how it is going with Baltimore and vice versa.

                I not going to speak about the departments specifically since i haven't had much interaction with them, but can speak about the area. If all possible, try to live outside the city if possible (not quite sure on department polices). Places around elkridge, columbia, or just north of the city can be nice. Both baltimore and washington of course are some of the roughest areas in the country, so i'm sure you'll get a wide variety of calls.

                  The recruting process for Baltimore City is very quick. They do your background investigation while your in the academy. Then if something comes up.........YOURE FIRED......
