If you’re looking at municipal enforcement, stop right now and look elsewhere. The city is a joke to work for. If you like having safety treated as a last priority by management then you’ll love it here. And forget about having a sergeant who answers questions. Instead he gets up and walks away when you ask him anything and refuses to help you. Managers, superintendents, and Human Resources are a joke. They constantly bully and harass their staff. The sergeant has neglected to notify staff of court appearances and when they don’t show up, they are blamed and threatened by management. Forget about complaining because the director won’t investigate your concerns and then tell you your concerns are unfounded. This is on top of them having a ticket quota, that they claim isn’t a quota. It’s 10. The daily ticket quota is 10 per person. They constantly lie about it too insisting the quota isn’t a quota. Management was actually alright with an employee not having a bullet proof vest, but still went after him for lack of tickets when he felt unsafe doing traffic enforcement with no armour. They went after numerous others for taking stress leave. You know why they’re all stressed? Because of incompetent management. But management and HR won’t acknowledge they’re the root of it all. They seem to think sending their peace officers into homeless camps while wearing coveralls over their uniform isn’t a safety concern. How about we give our managers a duty belt, and then cover it with coveralls, and then attack them and see how well they handle it? They wouldn’t know what to do but expect -
