I'm putting in an application to be a volunteer Sheriff's Deputy in my area. I have experience in regards to the military side of LE (8 months as an MP because the normal USAF cops left for Iraq). I also have training in trauma, and field first aid.
With that said, I do realize that civilian LE work is a completely different animal when compared to Military Police, so any tips will do nothing but help me in the end.
If I get selected, I'll have about 110 hours worth of training before I can get on the street, so to speak.
Feel free to PM me if you guys feel more comfortable with that.
