But a 21 year old would be any different? Life experience is formed over the course of a lifetime. There is nothing about the year between your 20th birthday and your 21st birthday that suddenly makes you experienced. So, either you have to accept the fact that officers will have to gain life experience over the course of the job, or you have to not hire them until they are middle aged.Originally posted by Mike:
I have always wondered about a 20 year old who has never lived away from home, never been in the military, or whose only experience may have been in a dorm, can go to a serious domestic, or minor spat, and be able to tell the difference. My .o2 on that point.
But you might pick up some English courses which is "gonna" help you with your grammar.Originally posted by SilverSnap:
i personally don't think the military or even college is gonna give you "life experience" that is gonna make you a good police officer.
