That's awesome. Good luck
Well said my friend.I see we just made it to 55,000 "hits" on this thread, that's pretty cool. I'm still happy to help anyone who wants to come out west to give us a try. We're still hiring an academy class almost every month.
Over the years, I've seen on other threads regarding police jobs that people always ask about details and overtime but no one ever seems to ask about the actual police job they are applying for. While the LAPD doesn't have details, we do have plenty of actual police work., i.e. carjackings, gang shootings, vehicle pursuits, robberies, burglaries, etc. It's here where we make our extra money (crime scenes, perimeters, court), not to mention making a difference catching bad guys and helping righteous crime victims.
Call me old fashioned but I came on the job to be a cop, which means catching bad guys and making a difference, knowing full well I probably wouldn't get rich doing it. However, we do OK financially so I can't really complain. Just a 30+ year officer's opinion for what it's worth.
