I was born male, but about a year ago I started living full-time as a woman and taking hormone blockers. I'm wondering if being transgender is going to adversely affect my chances of being a police officer. I'm too far into my transition to go military. I'm going to major in spanish, get fluent in that, and minor in criminal justice. No OUIs or criminal record. I know the law says the department can't discriminate against me, but I'd like an honest, practical assessment of my chances. I'll work hard and do whatever it takes as long as I have a shot.
