      Interesting. Armed customer service position, it sounds like. In a police station. Surprised they don't have police officers doing that.

          Sounds like every other security position I've heard, the wording is just slightly different...Also, this is for "City buildings, grounds, and parking lots" not the PD HQ.

          More than likely City Hall, rec centers, parks, etc. Outsourcing jobs cops used to do for lower paid guards.

          The pay sucks though.

            As for the pay condsidering that this is entry level and in arizona I think the pay is ok. Not the best but not the worst. I had compnanies offer me 10 / hr armed with no benifits. So this si better then the market is offering right now. Plus it is for the city. I was able to find the information that was posted but can find little else. Also this position was changed to be under the police department and they just got a pay raise.

              Yeah ..Here in Quebec they would make you guard like for example a bank without a gun.I've seen guards in banks without even kevlar vest and radios.They could just paint some targets on their chest.

                The City of Dallas and the Dallas County Government both have the same thing, in-house Public Security Departments with Armed Public Officers. Both departments oversee contract guards as well. I know guys who work or have worked for both, the city guys are the happier of the bunch mostly.

                The City Security Department is a part of the Building Services Department. You find their officers at City Hall, Love field Airport, the Dallas Housing Authority and other places.

                The County Security Department is a part of the County's Emergency management agency. You find them at the Courts Building, the Water Authority ect ect.

                The city guys pay is atleast decent for this area (they make a little more than the city's detention officers, a little less than a deputy city marshal, and a good deal less than a police officer), the county guys less so (you're better off working for the Sheriff as a Detention officer pay wise).

                  The pay isnt that bad. At that rate, I'd put in for that job.

                    Sounds like an excellent position. It should be stable employment since you'll be working for the city. The selection process is probably thorough and you should have a lot of interaction with the police officers--that should probably equate to a good working relationship.

                    Keep in mind that in this position, you'll be required to read Miranda warnings to subjects in custody if you begin questioning them concerning a crime. Although you won't be a law enforcement officer (unless there is some special commission involved that I didn't see), you will be considered a state agent for purposes of Miranda.

                    I'm sure you'll learn all that and more during training...

                        This position is often used as a stepping stone into an LE position within the PD. Scottsdale is a beautiful place to live. They have a services, parks and recreation department for residents like none other I have ever seen. I lived there for 15 years.

                          Sounds like a great job. Sacramento County Sheriff and Sacramento city PD also have similar positions.
