law enforcement
 
Thinking about getting in law enforcement but not sure were to start or what I need to get started. If i get in do I choose if I wanna be a town cop, sheriff or highway patrolman? How do shifts work what's the pay start are their good perks? What about the academy is that rough( which I don't care if it is) but nice to know please help

My son went to college, earned a BA in Law Enforcement. He started applying once finished and finally nailed a Police Officer job at the Mpls/St. Paul airport...a great job and he loves it.

Like a lot of other jobs, you can go to the head honcho (local police chief) and they will tell you pretty much all you need to know.

Do I remember right, that you are pulling down 60k in wyoming. I believe you said that in a post about 3 weeks ago. If that's the case, I don't think you will match it. Maybe?

What, exactly, "more" out of life do you want? Do you think that law enforcement will provide it? That should provide your answer.

In my experience it is hard to get much out of life when working for somebody else.

Wait, you lick yourself for a living?

Many ways of doing that. Law enforcement is one.
