Job Description for Police Sergeant

Police sergeants are responsible for enforcing state, federal, and local law. They are in charge of supervising, training, and motivating the officers under their command. As with any job in law enforcement, a police sergeant's day-to-day tasks vary. Generally, though, police sergeants ensure that those under their command perform policing duties as assigned and oversee the scheduling of subordinates to ensure the department is fully staffed. They also complete necessary paperwork for their department, as well as review and approve subordinates' reports. These professionals must take orders from superior officers and ensure those officers' decisions are enacted by lower-level officers. They also handle training for staff and oversee disciplinary measures as needed.
