    I am at FLETC now. Few comments..No one in my class spent less than a year to get here..some two years, If your a vet and or Leo use that one to apply more options on port as well as other things and its worth the time! If you want a very well paid LEO job..The time it takes and the road blocks you hit suck Just keep going! Any questions just ask

    Juveniles have the mindset of just that. They commit crimes just like adults but seem like they should be entitled and spoiled. The state of Texas is horrible for this. These are 16-19 year old kids. The state wants us to spoil them, treat them like 5 year olds. They get incentive days where they get games, food, incentives. They get recreation from 8am to 8pm. They are dangerous. If they assault you they are not held accountable because the prosecutor won't prosecute them. But if you try to restrain them they will fire you and even press charges on you. Saying excessive force. They don't even want us using o.c. spray anymore. It is dangerous for jco' s. This is all due to the new executive director and superintendent who are as liberal and wacky as they get. Which is crazy because gov. Abbot hired them. It is awful but it is a paycheck and need the insurance. County is not so bad but state is horrible and scary. These are murders, rapists, gang bangers and drug dealers and we can't do anything.

    Is it because juveniles are more challenging than adults?

    Same here! 18-8 applicant and im nearing the one year mark. I have a recruiter who works at the port I applied to who is looking into it for me. Hopefully there is something she can do, but I'm just staying hopeful at this point. Being patient sucks, but its the only option I get to exercise!

    Scheduling depends on the port. 8 hour shifts are standard. 10 and 12 hour shifts might be a possiblity...dependent on location. I have never seen a 16 hour scheduled shift.

    Overtime availability depends on port. Overtime scheduling is also port specific...but basically no port could support a 16 hour, 7 days a week schedule...and if one could, soon enough that Officer would run afoul of th 45K premium pay cap and then be removed from that scheduling. Many ports are not all that heavy in overtime agency-wide.

    Scheduling is also port specific. Most 8 hour shifts I would say run 6 on, 2 off with a three day weekend every 5th and 6th week...but as I said, it's all specific to the port.

    Pros: It's a job.
    Cons: Everything else.

    I'm being facetious, well somewhat. Corrections is great experience. In my view, anyone who works in LE should have corrections experience. It'll help you greatly throughout your career. Just don't make a career out of it.
