I am currently a SF soldier stationed in Ft. Bragg, NC. I am very interested in a career in law enforcement after active duty. I will apologize beforehand if my questions are posted elsewhere, I am not as saavy to forums as I should be. Being out of state for this long, will that be a detriment to getting a position with the Mass State Police? How would the process go forward, my being out of state? Should I wait until I am DCed and then process? I have heard that MSP is super political in its appointments, would I have a decent shot? Is it possible, even acceptable to stay on in the NG? I know of a couple of Special Forces companies in Rhode Island and Massachusetts; is anyone in this forum in SF NG in New England? Sorry for the rants, just looking for some answers. Thanks for everything.
