  • Desperate Bay Area Departments

    Not to offend anyone associate with Maywood PD, but I've seen many SoCal officers on this forum refer to them as being lucky to have anyone work for them. I know nothing of the department, so I don't have an opinion, but I wa curious if anyone knows of any Maywood-equivalent agencies in the bay area.

    Yes, there are a few agencies in the Bay Area that will take rejects from other law enforcement agencies. However, I will not post them on a public forum.

    Why would you be interested anyway? Are you a reject from another law enforcement agency looking for an easy way in?

      I'm not actually looking for an "easy" way in but more like a "quick" way in. I need to work and I've found that most agencies, who are supposedly hurting for cops, just slowly plod along in their hiring process and in some cases never even actually respond to applicants.

      My thoughts are that I have much to offer and its not about where I work so much as it is about the job I do.

      If I can trade my willingness to work almost anywhere for a quick way in with a an agency that is happy to have applicants, I am ready to do that.

      PMs are fine.

          hey can someone please pm me some of those departments. I'm not quite a reject, but after 18 years I do have some p file baggage, don't feel hassiling with picky departments and their background investigators.

          thanks

            See there, I'm not the only one. Agencies complain about finding candidates who don't have background issues with criminal histories, drug histories, and bad credit and then turn down candidates who have had less than smooth sailing during their career, usually having been on the receiving end of internal politics.

              Amen barkalot. I have minimal discipline, one negative incident and a long list of justified force packages, but you know how they go with the "where theres smoke thers fire" theory.

                Sometimes, simply getting into LE is hard. But be aware....if you are just getting in, you may have a hard time once you ARE in getting to one of those "other" agencies that take a while. If you work for an agency known to hire rejects, you may have a stigma that will follow you thru the testing process. So, if you are trying to get your first LE job, I'd be a little more picky than that. Just my $0.02, which is worth half that.

                  I understand that, but at this point I just need to feed my family.

                    Lowering the standards AND hiring rejects????
                    This profession is not for people looking for positive reinforcement from the public. Very often it can be a thankless job and you can't desire accolades, because those are not usually forthcoming. Just do your job to the best of your ability and live with the decisions you've made.

                      The only rejects are those clowns officers that think they are better than others simply by working for sassy department. Work the ghetto and to some degree you do become ghetto, but not a reject.

                        I agree... I wouldnt want to work with cops that are too good for the job and think they are better then everyone else. Im humble and would like majority of my peers to be the same as well. Now I dont agree with lowering a standard because these are the people who "serve and protect" us but everyone should be on a case by case. Some people do deserve a chance to redeem themselves in certain cases. Im not an expert but come on this is common sense tho its not too common anymore.

                              So far no suggestions. If anyone has any and PMs me, I will not list them on the public forum.
