    I have recently sent out a cover letter and resume to a few local police departments around me asking to be join the auxiliary police force. I now have two departments that said they will take me on in the fall. My question is can I "work" for more then one police department? I figured I would rather give my time at two places to better my chances of getting full time.

    Check with each department and make sure they do not have any policy forbidding it,but I know several people that work for more than one department.

    I believe that it helps. You will get your foot in the door and hopefully develop good contacts. Another plus is that you may, depending on what the auxiliaries do in the department, get a taste of what the work will be like.

    Something I should have mentioned, don't be surprised if they require you to graduate from the Reserve Intermittent Academy before they will take you.

    Use it to pad the resume and seek contacts in a non civil service department. They are the only ones that seem to be hiring some what in this state.

    When I'm at home typing on my PC it is not my first priority to spell check and proof read my forum posts and/or threads. And yes, obvioulsy I made sure my cover letter and resume were all in check. Thanks for the replys though and the good lucks. I also figured a person must first pass the testing and training before being taken in.
