Heres the deal, I claimed residency preference for an unnamed community, yet because I'm 33 I will not be considered for employment according to HRD. Evidently I was negligent not to realize that I couldn't get hired there after age 31.I have been a full time police officer for six years (unfortunately non-civil service) and worked as a special and reserve with other departments since 1997. I am one of the most proactive and progessive officers on my department and have numerous commendations etc.It would be advantageous for a department to hire a well qualified officer with an excellent track record, not to mention the amount of specialized courses, academy costs etc that they would save in hiring someone like me. Does anyone know if there's any way around this age limit law, it doesn't even show me where I stand on thier list. It sounds like age discrimintation to me, does the state have any type of lawsuit history on this matter????
