I have just submitted my application for the local PD . I am leaving healthcare for a whole new world of fun . Only tip I have gotten so far is to be prepared for the amount of paper work I will be filing...lol. Any tips from you wonderful fellow fightingarts.com junkies? Specifically you of the police persuasion...?

Congratulations. In no time at all I'll seeing you on an episode of cops arresting yet another shirtless man. It's always the guy without the shirt.

Ahhhh.....I tried to take the plunge about 10 years ago, but washed out on the eye exam. Guess they didn't want me to shoot the hostage by mistake.

Be prepared for Internal Affairs to be all over if you even APPEAR to screw something up. Don't EVER forget to sign+date your paperwork - ALL OF IT. Get written authorization for all time off, and make a copy of it for yourself.

But mostly, have fun!

It is always the shirtless man isn't. I'll be on the lookout for no shirt and mullets. A deadly combination. I'll do my best to have fun, I am an RN so I have to sign everything eight times anyways. Hopefully I won't get buried in paperwork. Thanks for the encouragement guys!

Try and stay in shape. 99% of what you do might be riding around in a Squad Car, but there will be those instances where you have to chase someone down. Also, work on your marksmanship. You might be called upon to fire your handgun once in your entire career, but that one time is when it will really count.

As time goes by and you make traffic stop after traffic stop and nothing ever goes wrong. You will progress in your career and become more confident in your abilities.

It is not the first traffic stop that you make by yourself that will kill you (you will always remember the first one because you will be scared and display excellent officer safety skills).

It is the 10,000th one. The one where you will have been on the road as a patrol officer for 15-20 years. You will have lost all of your good habits and you will be complacent...and then that very agreeable senior citizen, or that cooperative young man that is so polite and keeps saying, "Yes sir" or, "No sir" will produce a weapon that you did not see...

Another piece of advice;

if you don't get accepted at the first place you apply for don't worry about it. Just keep plugging along and keep applying. If turned away, call the HR rep and ask them why and then do what you can to straighten out the concerned area.

Sometimes they will choose a more qualified applicant, sometimes, it will be because someone was just liked better, and sometimes, the L.E.O. will be looking to fill a quota.

I applied at 3 different L.E.O.s before I found the right fit.

Bottom Line: if it is something that you are determined to do; don't get discouraged...

Kel

It's ironic that I am going to retire in a few years and go into the nursing field and you are leaving the nursing field and going into law enforcement.

Good luck.

Too funny! Funny how that works out isn't it. Nursing is great, I am just ready for something else. I am already trying to setup my contingencies. I am applying to a very small PD and there is a lot of competition for the position. I will take your advice if I don't receive this particular position. Thanks guys!

BTW, is there a particular field of nursing you are considering entering? Just curious.
