Memo to Special and Senior Special Officers of the NYC Health and Hospitals Corporation (HHC) Hospital Police

Part III: HHC Hospital Police and Director of Security position  


    The below job description was copied from a job description for Director of Security at Kings County Hospital. Dated 12/8/2008. If you skip the stupid part like urban and urbane, what is that supposed to mean, you get some idea of what the personnel department is looking for. If you are a HHC Hospital Police Sergeant or above you have to match up with a lot of the below qualifications and in some cases exceed these qualifications if you are going for this position. Certainly, any fraternal Hospital Police leadership organization should be studying not only the directors but also the assistant director's and Corporate director's job descriptions at all locations in the Hospital Police. You should also focus on what is missing from this job description. There is no mention of working in an actual hospital in a leadership position in the HHC Hospital Police. Hospital security by itself is pretty intense and complicated, but if you add to that a big-city hospital where they have to hire peace officers for these positions than you have a job experience that is different from only security or law enforcement. To say that someone  can come in without this experience and became a great leader of a HHC Hospital Police department without  making a lot of mistakes is both stupid and foolish.

    The other question is how did the person who eventually got this job match up to the job description. If someone who is looking at this page knows the answer to my question, please answer in the below comment section.
