I’ve been mulling it over in my head for years but I’m worried that I waited too long I’m now 21 so I was wondering a few things 1. Am I too old? 2. What schooling do I need (if any) 3. Is becoming an officer a good idea? I hear a lot about “the call” I don’t know if I feel it, at least not in the way others feel it “stop crime” way, I on the other hand feel the call in the way of “I wanna help others”
I used to be a car salesman for 2 and a half years, hated how useless I was in society and decided to do what my husband had done for 18 years. I have to get my G.E.D., so I've been working on that. But honestly as a female, what are my chances? I have no prior experience in the field. And I don't know anyone who might be able to give me any advice, so anybody in Law Enforcement please tell me what I need to do. Thank you in advance!
Forgive men if this might be the wrong board, but I was seeking if anyone had any knowledge about working at the Portland Police Department. So I was curious about how it was working for the Portland Police? I wanted to do law enforcement after I complete my college degree and Northwest is my type of area. However, I am seeing controversy in the news that it is hard to find good recruits. But I am also a firm believer that there are two sides of every story. So I was curious if I should be concerned about the management?
