        First, you have to move here as a resident-alien. That's not hard to do. Almost anybody can. Especially if you are employable and have a job lined up.

        But it takes a few years before you can acquire citizenship. It's not much more than a test and an oath, however.

        It's too bad it takes so long, because we could use the help. I mean like now.


        p.s. How is it you have a US passport? I have noticed that your English is exceptional for a foreigner (or for an American, for that matter).

          You obviously already have US citizenship, if you hold a US passport. You cannot get one without citizenship. How did you get the passport if you are not at least a dual citizen?!?!

                Well, if you have dual citizenship then it really shouldn't be much of a problem except for the background investigator (or maybe he could swing a european trip out of it, LOL.) You would most likely have to go through an academy wherever you plan on working but other than that you probably have a real good shot. Best of luck to you.

                    You graduated from some high school or equivelant didn't you?

                        Sounds fine to me. A buddy of mine who was born in NY but raised in France had no problems finding a job. As long as you have the equivelant of whatever schooling they require they can work with it.

                            That question is relative to what you want out of the job and what areas of the country interest you. Way too many variables for anyone to make a judgement call on your behalf. How about telling everyone what kind of weather you prefer, what type of crime are you looking to go after, what kind of community will your wife accept, ect, ect.
