I moved to Irving, Texas, from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, after seeing the many benefits and opportunities the City of Irving offers. The Irving Police Department has various opportunities for growth through many specialized units. The salary compensation was not even comparable to Pennsylvania local departments. I have been with IPD for almost a year. The training you receive is very thorough, and the in-service academy will really prepare you for the street. The instructors want to see you succeed, and they help you any way they can. The members of IPD truly invest in you and your future. The DFW area offers a vast array of places to live that are affordable and within a reasonable commuting distance as well.
