It is a step down, from being acting chief in a municipal department to working as a campus police officer 1. You will always have that haunting you when you go for other jobs and you will always have to explain it. Yes it's bad where you are, but it shows you can dish it out and when the going gets tough, you stick with it and that shows that you are not a quiter. Go to another municipal department but for god's sake don't go back. Besides you will not do the same stuff at BSC that you are doing now, trust me. And it's only $498 a week brother and no take home car, bridgewater pd doesn't really care for anyone but themselves and you will always have to worry what your job is going to be when the new president of the college gets in, every few years. You could be a hard core cop one year and a door opener the next.
