I have a large family in law enforcement, mainly with in the MADOC and MSP. I want to go into law enforcement when I get out of highschool but I was wondering how much family in law enforcement helps, As my second cousin is George Hanna(Yes the one that the Mass police medal of honor is named after) and on my mother side my great grand father was also killed on duty, he was Wilfred Gerrior. So My question is would this help me in anyway in getting hired? I plan when I get out of highschool is to apply to the sheriffs dept and enlist, wilst going to college and when possible taking any of the police academies as well as taking the exams every 2yrs for police,state trooper and corrections. My ultimate goal is to either be a local officer, MBTA officer or a state trooper.
