Help with experience

Post by Bluflag12 » Tue Jun 04, 2019 4:12 pm

I’m planning to take the civil service test later this year but in the meantime I was wondering what jobs I can look into to get some experience in the law enforcement field.

Become a Class II, Become a Class I, become a campus security guard. Do ANY other job that will give you experience or life experience.

You don't necessarily need law enforcement experience in order to be a police officer. In fact, it's sometimes better to NOT have any experience because some departments want to "mold" their officer. If you're over the age of 25 you also have a MUCH better chance at being hired. Life experience will trump a college graduate ANY Day,
