  • Departments that are hiring non certified applicants?

    I hope this is the correct place for this question. I am just a lurker and was hoping to find some advice.

    I am 23, in college, holding a steady corporate job to pay my way through school. I have a long term goal to work in LE.

    I live in Michigan, about the worst place to attempt to break into this field. I am exploring either joining a branch of the military (Probably Air Force or Coast Guard if I do), or trying to find a department who is accepting and hiring civilians to become trained and work for them. I am willing to look anywhere in the country at this point.

    I applied as a reserve officer at a local dept a year and a half ago, passed the written test and oral interview a few months ago, but they were recently put on a hiring freeze. My intention was to work as a reserve (and my full time job) until I could find something better in Michigan. With our market the way it is, I think I'm better off to go somewhere else for a few years, then think about transferring back here (my long term goal is to end up back in MI).

    That's a long post to ask this:

    Are there departments that are accepting (and hiring) people like me? I have no academy training whatsoever. If so, who should I be talking to? I was told to inquire with Dallas and Cleveland for starters.

    Any advice you have would be appreciated.
    Thanks,

      The economy is bad and I understand where you are coming in terms of finding a job in your area because my area is the same way, but if you don't care where you go, then there are many options.....you just have to do some actual research. There are various sights that post job listing's like this one for instance...911hotjobs.com,usajobs.com. You are bound to find something......

        Understood on doing research on my own. I have looked at a few websites and not found what I was looking for. I will look at the ones you mentioned.

        Just looking to see if anyone here knew of departments that were definitely hiring civilians off the street, and any other related info they may have.

        Thanks for the reply.

          Best advice to you is, Pick a state first, then pick an area of the state, and start with a county and start googling and finding websites to depts and see who needs bodies, as i already posted Memphis, TN will hire NON-Certs, and need them.

          I am in no way shape or form a MPD recruiter just stating they need people.

            Thanks,
            With you being in school, I would do the internship with the USMS. Upon completion of the internship and your degree, the USMS will give you a job offer if you impress on your internship. Thats one of the easiest ways to break into the field for individuals still in college
