    Here at 22 with two year on. I will admit that is very correct because all my friends are my age and some are not matured yet. My background is very different, I didnt have a choice but to grow up quick.

    That's interesting because aren't most females a few years ahead of their male counterparts? So a 19 year female might mentally be 21 or so...

    Something to think about. :P

    Most in my area won't seriously look at you (as a white guy atleast) until you're 21, but there are exceptions.

    Thank you, NavCop22. It's damn good to hear you got your job back, err, well another LEO position. I'm contemplating deleting the evil from my life (myspace) and continueing on.

    Dont delete it because like others have said. Most people like myself and a few others in here have it to keep in touch with friends. I have one myself, but no one besides my friends knows I have one.


    Another point that someone made here is dont advertise to the world about your career intentions. Use your myspace as your own without all the " I want to be a LEO" or stuff like that. This is a political position and just think if you were president and that you were always under the microscope. Same deal with LEOs and COs for that matter. Keep it on low profile and you wont have to worry about your career going down the drain.

    I have no doubt in my mind that you will make it. However, when you do make it which will be one day. Keep this in mind always. SHUT YOUR MOUTH AND OPEN YOUR EARS. You are going to hear than more than once and its not going to end in the academy. Rest assure of that WadsonF.


    Good Luck in your progress and hopefully youll get that job offer sooner or later.

I wont provide an explantion because i'll just get bashed some more. I understand where I went wrong, but I still dont get how this thread went from a friendly "Hey guys, How is everyone doing in florida?" to Wadson, get the hell out, your never going to be a cop!

    It's ok. Thanks, and thanks some more.

    I really dont know you well because I havent read many of your posts. I'm not going to bash you for advertising that you are a police cadet, LEO aspring whatever you are doing to let the world know of your career choice. I remember I was the same way when I was 19. When I was 19 I was wearing shirts with police cars on it and I was just a plain teenager cop wanna be. However, what you are doing is so foolish that I couldnt pack it all at once in this post. You have gotten EXCELLENT advice from other LEOs on here which I would of killed for when I was 19. They are the professionals and if you dont listen to them you might as well consider getting another career choice.


    As for posting your myspace on here or ANYWHERE. Not a good idea!!!. I had a personal web profile when I worked with an agency when I was 20. The agency sponsered me through the academy and all and I loved my job. Someone like SoFlaCop has mentioned in his post. A anonymous person reported my personal web profile to the agency I worked for, it was supposely an out of state officer. The IA got started on a tuesday and on friday of that same week I had to turn in my badge and my uniforms. I was done!!!.


    I'm 23 now. Its taken me 3 god damn years to recover from that!!!!!. Right now I'm grateful to god and to jesus that I got a job offer once more to be a LEO from an agency that I have had my heart set on since I can remember!!!!. I have seen MANY MANY good officers and deputies get let go because they posted their identity or their picture or what you just did online. Dont do the same stupid and careless decision that many deputies and I have done. No agencies wanted to hire me at first. I was even called a "second class" officer by a certain agency that is above Collier county. I'll let you guys who know figure it out ; D . All I can say now that I will once again have the opportunity to become a LEO is. LISTEN TO THE PROS AND SHUT YOUR MOUTH!!!!!. My FTO put it great once, SHUT YOUR MOUTH AND OPEN YOUR EARS. Best advice I have gotten about learning the ropes of LE.


    LISTEN TO THE PROFESSIONALS!!!!! Their advice is priceless and again I wish I had this same advice when I was 19. I would of killed for it!!!!.

    I don't think this thread is where you have gone wrong. We have all heard you only get one chance to make a first impression. To say the least, many of your posts have been immature and of poor choice. You are constantly given advice on how to act as someone wanting to join into the profession of a Law Enforcement officer. This advice has been from professional law enforcement officers on this site, yet you ignore them time after time. If you REALLY want to become an officer, take the advice. You have already made a bad impression on this forum and are only digging a hole for yourself to enter this career. Many of us have never met you and can only base our opinion of you from your posts. Please take our advice and constructive critisism and good luck.

    If I had to do it over again I would do the military, then do school.

    I enlisted in 1999 as a Delayed Entry because I always wanted to serve my country and be a soldier. At the time the Army was having the Army College Fund, which promised 40k after u got out for college. I honestly didn't even consider that money because I planned on making the Army a career, but four years later, after I got out, i'm happy as hell i got that option. I am about 9 or so weeks from getting my B.S. in CJ and the Army will have paid for 100% and more of it.

    Now, after four years in the Army i feel like i matured alot. I dealt with all sorts of people, situations, etc. But when I decided to go to college I went because I WANTED to be there, not for job oppurtunities, or because that's what everyone else wanted, but because I wanted to learn.

    Now I'm applying to be a Deputy Sheriff and I feel like my background will help me out tremendously in my new career. So Wadson, I don't really know what advice to give you other than to seek out your dreams, but good luck in whatever you do.

    Why is the military not an option? If I were you, I would strongly think about college as well. You learn a lot about yourself when you're there.
