  • A good job while you wait

    I am currently unemployed and I was just wondering what some would recommend as a job that will kind of prepare you for law enforcement.

    Sorry to hear that you are unemployed at the moment. I will say this. Just go out and get a job that you will enjoy and can stay working there for sometime, so that when you do apply somewhere, you have some work history behind you. Get a job that you can acheive in, so that it will also project that you are possibly a good worker and all. To get into LE, for Police work that is, you do not need Security/Loss Prevention work behind you. Good luck in the job search.

            True, if you want to prepare for life as a cop, you should learn to be a garbageman, a babysitter, a mental health counselor and an actor.
            You will perform all these functions and many more.

                In a lot of cities a garbageman makes more than the police do. (NYC is one I believe)

                  I would look for a hospital that has a good Security Department. I currently work in a hospital while I wait to get into LE, and I love it. We are a very LE minded organization here, and we deal with everything from drugs, guns, psychiatric patients, and I have developed a very strong relationship with every Police Department that comes through the hospital.

                    Just find a job where your under appreciated and people yell at you alot. Keep in the back of your mind while these same people are giving you the business that one day they will be doing it from your back seat.

                      Job that will prepare you for law enforcement? Heres some that are a tad easier to get into right away depending if you want Federal or State.

                      Federal: Federal Bureau of Prisons
                      County: Sherrifs Dept.
                      State: State Corrections Officer
                      State: If you have a degree, Probations/Parole Officer

                      Last chance nothing else? Security...Local Hospital, Firm, you can even work for a security comapnt in the yellow pages but youll kick yourself for that. Thats a last choice. Go for the hospital as number 1, then Pharmacutical Companies and such.

                      Good Luck
