    I knew from the start that L.E. was going to be a "hobby" for me. My advice is to do what I did and marry an R.N. or hell even a NP or MD.......Let them make the big bucks so you can concentrate on loving the job!!!! LOL!!!!;)

    Was so into the job when I first started. I'm very grateful for where I am now and my retirement but if I could do it all over again I'd be a plumber,electrician. Etcccccccc

    You can very easily transfer to another unit wherever you end up with a cop job. I looked into this quite extensively myself. Don't let your reserve service stop you from going South or West.

    I realize that switching won't be the end of the world... what's keeping me is family - specifically sick family

    You had to join the program with a small amount of credits, it's like a 5 year program you get your masters and a FT academy. Try VT, Maine there always hiring troopers. Money ain't good but if you wanna stay here and not deal with CS then that's probably your best bet not being academy trained. Depending on your unit or mos I had a couple friends get put through the Worcester academy by the army as MPs a while ago? But I would go west, look at Utah, colorodo ect it's gorgeous out there

    I went to Rhode Island, I was hired within 4 months of taking the test. The RI Academy, is accepted by the MPTC in case you ever decide to return home. RI is close enough to MA and has high population density and there is plenty of police work to be done. You won't be policing a one horse town, unless you go to Scituate or Foster.

    Soon enough most departments will be out of CS, then it will be all political hooks and academy training.

    Some advice . If your local area doesn't pan out please look federal . Postal police has a great gig w great money. At the end of the day it's about the pay,time off, and benefits . Trust me.

    Virginia is lovely this time of year.

    We are always hiring and it's a great stepping stone if you want to get your 1811 one day.
