    Like mentioned before, the VA has programs to assist you in getting a job. GI bill will pay for the academy and if need be, unemployment is something. Take advantage of the VA because they have various ways of assisting you. Good luck.

    Great...what Dept. are you going too? Also in the mean time, I would seriously look into unemployment and also you can use your GI bill while attending the Academy, which means extra money.

    I Agree

    I agree with you. I am just going to (to quote an Army phrase) suck it up and drive on. I Will be in the academy starting 11 July 05 and I WILL graduate in the top of my class.

    Dude, you may just want to look at getting a solid job before applying for a LE job. I mean first off, there is no "expediant process" to hire someone in LE, If there is, they are hiring the wrong people. Second, without a job at the moment and getting evicted...chances are to even get processed anywhere are slim to none.

    I feel for you man, but you need to look out for yourself and your kids if you do want to get into LE. Why not get a loan from the VA or use some of your GI money to go to school, etc.?

I mean I understand its business but as I said earlier I am a single dad raising 3 daughters. And now we have no income. So if there is anyone who reads this post who currently is a LEO and your department is recruiting please let me know so I can inquire about me comming on board and hopefully become a member of your department. By the way my background has already been done by Clayton County.

    Thank you

    To reiterate, Forest Park is currently hiring, East Point as well. They aren't too far from you and need people now. I would try both of them right now.

    Forest Park

    I know Forest Park PD has immediate openings which is North Clayton County. They'll put you thru the academy but you'll have to sign a 3yr contract with them which isn't too bad. They also pay you while your in the academy... (approx) $13.00/hour or something like that and goes up when you get out.

    Thats who I work for so PM me if you have any questions.

I working a job now at a truck wash for $8 an hour and as you all know that is not enough to support a single father with 3 kids. So if there is anybody out there who might be able to help, please let me know via email and I will respond immediately.

    Thank you
    Most departments will not "sign you on" before an Academy and if they do. You will being doing small tasks before an Academy starts. But you as an individual may have to broaden your choices of where to apply besides Georgia and you have to be the one to get the job. Some can assist you in here, but when it comes down to getting the actual job, etc. You have to be the one to get it for yourself! Good luck to you.

    Jackson, GA, well your not too far from me. Yea, your only choice if things are getting dificult is to join clayton PD. I work for clayton county but I certainly wont sign up with thier police force the way things are going around here. But check Rockdale county SO first.

    Is that for Clayton Co. P.D. or S.O.? I ask because the S.O. will have you working in the jail, just so you would be aware. Clayton Co. P.D. isn't a bad agency but they take forever to give an officer a take home car and their starting pay is one, if not the lowest in the area. Good luck.

    Thier Juristdiction is the whole state of Georgia, Its like a trooper, but you report to the capitol for work. Thier precinct is off capitol ave., and operate out of GSP headquarters and follow the same policies. They patrol all state buildings in the Downtown Atlanta area and patrol Underground Atlanta and Coke center Parking lot. I rememeber they said the Lt. there used to write people while heading down the highway to Forsyth for training on his cycle. Thier discription is "Police Corporal ". Man I wish I would have stayed there and went to the academy, but Im making more money here at the county level working on police cars so i cant really complain.
