    I wouldn't go that far to say a move won't matter, every state is different as to what training they will/will not recognize.

    For what its worth, I agree that you need to goto a large agency that has a constant turn over rate, and have their own academy..

    I dont know how things are in OK, but in OH, reserve officers have to have the same quailifications as FT or PT..

    Good Luck !

    Well I've never been one to accept "it won't happen" I've invested too many years of working dispatch/Jail and reserve officer to throw in the towel. Not to mention I have the support of several ranking officers who have pushed to get me on patrol with their depts.

    Sorry but if it's taken that long then it is not likely to happen. If you were qualified and and had the education and physical abilty to do the job some agency would have hired you by now.
    If it takes more a few years to get a full time leo position that's okay. A firther time spent is time spent spinning your wheels.

    In a lot of states, the number of training hours required for reserve certification is far less that those required for full time officer certification. Because sending officers through a full academy is very costly (academy tuition, recruit wages, benefits, etc.) many agencies give preference to those who already have full certification. Your best bet is to try an agency that is large enough to have a constant turnover and runs its own academy. Those are the ones most likely to hire someone without full certification.

    Where am I going wrong?

    For the past 15 years I have struggled to become a police officer. I'm CLEET Reserve certified, Intoxilizer Certified and have over 100 hours additional training yet, in the state of OK it seems everyone wants someone who is F/T certified by CLEET or they don't want to give you a chance. Not to mention I'm now 36 and a single mom. My options here seem so limited, but I don't want to give up on something I have worked so hard to do. I am considering moving out of state but have no idea where. If anyone has any advice I would sooooo appreciate it
