    I just applied to Suffolk County Sheriff's Department. Does anybody have any advice or input on the department? Thanks.

    Not a bad stop if your trying to get your foot in the door. Good money, decent work conditions.

    Just be careful. some of us never leave :eek:

    compared to the other counties on opencheckbook (http://mass.gov/opencheckbook), it seems like these guys make among the most in the state, rivaling DOC with overtime.

    Take the DOC Co 1 test. Is somewhat less political and the pay is better.

    Take every exam you can. Either job will start your retirement clock and you can make a career if you never get on a police or fire department. DOC has advantages and disadvantages over counties. More base pay but some facilities have almost no overtime. With counties you can do police details, DOC has no details. Do you really want to dodge shank attacks at Souza-Baranowski? I would rather a few less bucks an hour. Plus DOC loves suspending and firing their own and have very strict rules. Counties can be very political, but so can the DOC. Very few facilities have job bids, and the Super's picks are very political. Go for both jobs and hopefully you will get offered one of both.

    Definitely, I agree and signed up for the test last week. I'll take anything just to get going.

    That's the right attitude!

    Both county and Doc have their advantages true But you don't have to suck dick or donate to get promoted in the Doc although some try. :D

    I bet, I'll take whatever. Everybody keeps telling me DOC is taking scores of 80+...lol I don't believe that. Nonetheless I plan on getting a 95+

    Believe it. I know a guy who got on DOC with a low 80s score. High turnover, retirements, etc. Best of luck to you!

    There were 79s in my class but they were vets.

    The Doc has hired close too if not more than 1000 in the last 3 years.

    It's not s bad place to start even if you plan on moving along.

    Good luck.
