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.
