Does anyone have advice to what I should do besides just apply thanx oh by the way California sheriffs
Most don't "require" a college degree, but in comparison with those who do have a college degree, if you don't have one, you won't stand a chance. A degree is very beneficial.glocknloaded said:Do most require a college degree or can I with out one simply apply and is there even a chance that I would get in with no degree
I don't think that there is any shortage of candidates. Last go around in my home town there were 450 applications for 2 positions. The 2 hires were 26 YO, had military service, 1 was an M P. and both had criminal justice degrees. They tend to hire the best of the best.iGlock said:Its funny how some states are hurting for more LEs but yet you need a degree, ya they need to lower the standerds then youll have more LEs.
Thats why i said some states lol. Well thats what i hear in my state. That they are in need of LEs and some of us cant afford school but would make great LEs. Oh well....Augi said:I don't think that there is any shortage of candidates. Last go around in my home town there were 450 applications for 2 positions.

So my situation is I am 27 and i own my own construction business that so far has been a successful but I really want to do something more rewarding something I can tell my grand kids about, what should I do if I wanted to become a law enforcement officer? What are my first steps?glock26USMC said:Been a Deputy Sheriff here in Ohio for 10 years, beginning running now, and then run again, like mentioned above, do not lie on any pre employment information and keep answers consistent with each other, they will find out if you deviate from each other. Keep a level head, be fair but firm. Remain calm at all times and go into every shift/situation with a level head. Mistakes can get you or a partner killed, there is little room for error when your in LE, you are faced with the worst of the worst on a daily basis, however you also see kind hearted people that just need your attention.
It is the most rewarding career, you get out of it, what you put into it. Please remember to always wear your equipment (Body Armor) it may get "hot" but trust me your life may depend on that "hot" piece of article.
If you have any specific questions, feel free to ask, good luck, and stay safe out there!
