Which one is better to work for: Worcester State College or Worcester Polytechnic Institue? And why? :roll:
I couldn't agree more. I know that my department is actively looking for a new Director of Public Safety, as the current Director is resigning as of 11/13. In my opinion, and I may be biased but, our department has a lot of potential and from what I hear, the admin is looking for us to grow alot. What we need is a younger director, either from a muni or campus department, that is going to be proactive and aggressive with the needs and requirements of the department. Retired bosses, be them ex-MSP, muni or whatever, are probably already drawing a pension and are just happy to be making some extra golf $$$. Odds are they are not gonna make waves and butt heads with the admin over the departments function and role. I am not saying all retired chiefs/directors are like this, just some that I have heard about.This is not necessarily good at all. Remember that these guys retired from MSP and are looking for a good gig where they dont rock the boat and are looking to supplement their retirement. Their police days are over and don't want any hard core young guys that want to do police work. Look at MITPD, nothing but problems since DiFava came in and same goes for HUPD. What you need is a Chief with balls and smarts.
