    FWIW, if you are looking to go out of state, check out the following URL. It lists each state's contact for LEO certification info (ie - MCOLES for MI, etc)

    G'luck, you're right - the job market in MI is pretty rough right now, lotta folks out there who have finished an academy and not able to land a job because of the lack of job openings!

    I hope everyone that reads this thread thinks differently than you because that is not the way I meant it. I love to train, I was an Army grunt that loved training and now I'm a civilian that loves to train. There is nothing in my background that would EVER prevent me from getting a job. I am just not a big fan of the area that I live in due to the low job market. Michigan's state budget is so messed up right now, law enforcement agencies dont have the funding for anymore officers which are VERY MUCH NEEDED! I understand your point of view and I am glad you pointed that out so that I may address it. Thank you.

It is like army boot camp, went threw that and loved it. I like training and education, with these two things, there is nothing that I can not accomplish.

    Not so in MT, you merely have to challenge the Montana Post Standard by taking a few written and physical tests. You may have to attend a few law classes to acquaint yourself with MT MCA but you do not have to go through the Academy all over again. Once certified in another state it is not that difficult to become certified in MT. Most of the larger departments are now taking lateral transfers.

    Same thing for Florida. Someone's always hiring down here. As our population continues to grow exponentially, so does the need for more cops.

    WELL HAVE ONLY ONE REAL OPTION RIGHT NOW IN MICHIGAN AND THATS DETROIT, PRETTY EASY TO GET HIRED, PAYS LOW BUT YOU CAN MAKE UP FOR THAT WITH OVERTIME AND COURT APPERREANCE AND YOU HAVE TO DEAL WITH A PRETTY ANTI POLICE CITY...BUT OTHER THAN THAT YOU GET TO DO ALL THE THINGS THAT YOU WOULD IMAGINE THE "REAL POLICE" WOULD DO! TAKE IT AS A LAST RESORT...TRY EMPCO TEST....1 TEST FOR I THINK 10 DEPARTMENTS.
