    Police Work

    Advertisements
    Anyone's SO planning to go into or is in the police force?

    DB really likes the idea of joining the county police when he gets out of the Marine Corps. Ideally, he wants to do SWAT, but he said he has to be on the force before he can apply. I was just curious if there's anyone else out there!

    my dh wants to. the plan is for him to go to the state police academy here. my dad's a state police captain, so of course hes ecstatic theres an exam coming up within the next year, the entrance exam for the academy, and i just told dh about it the other night... hes still unsure if he'll re-enlist again, or get out this time. i guess we'll see! but being a cop is what he wants to do when he IS out, whenever that may be..

    Dh has thought about it, he's NG so he could do it after deployment. He's still thinking about it a lot though.

    My step-brother is I believe. He got out of the Marines a year ago and is just now looking into joining.

    My DH is probably going career Navy.
    Now, my Dad, on the other hand was prior Navy and he swapped out the Cracker Jacks for a utility belt and bullet-proof vest almost immediately after he got out. He's been in law enforcement (in one capacity or another) for almost 23 years now. He loves it. Said it was just the next natural step for him once he got out of the Military. ^.^
    It can be dangerous and time consuming, but it's not a BAD job.

    If DH doesn't go career he's planning on becoming a police officer.

    I didn't expect this many responses

    I hope there's a test around the same time DB gets out of active duty. Once he's home from deployment, he's going to go down to one of the stations and speak with someone there.

    DB wants to be a career, but when he does get out he is thinking about flying for the Sheriffs office or something like that.

    If DH get's out instead of career, he wants either do the same as far as SWAT or work for like the DEA or some other government agency (I would prefer he didn't ). But I have a great uncle who is a retired Sheriff, uncle who is a sheriff, a few cousins who are NYS troopers, a few cousins who are city cops, a few that are town cops in and around the area I'm from. A few that work in the jail. I would say I'm one of the only people in my family that didn't go into law enforcement. I think it's a great career field!

    I would rather DB not do SWAT either. Like, seriously, can you give me some time to not worry about you
