There were still other considerations I had to deal with based on my living situation. Not everybody just wants to get on wherever they can. We all have different priorities. I actually am shocked how much this job was the right fit for me. I never wanted to do this growing up and its the same for most of my co-workers and colleagues.
    To each their own.

    I'm not gonna lie, I remember the struggle getting into LE, if Harvey was the first department that called me for hire. I would NOT turn it down. But that's me and how I feel.

    Is the environment really that bad that people see an app of a Harvey officer and think they may be indicted soon?

    I didn't know a 6 foot tall invisible rabbit could have a police department.

    Never could trust a politician. Never could trust a man who cant look you in the eye when he shakes your hand. At least Nick Graves for all his flaws looked me in the eye.

    I believe I've had this dog sniping people as my pic for some time now, but I have been wrong once before. I, along with Steph have been an advocate of HARVEYWORLD since back in 09 when I was hired there.

    I stand corrected, just using those departments as a reference. There are departments in the area that automatically see Harvey on an app and have to wonder "is this guy going to be indicted soon? Has he just not been caught stealing?" Nature of the beast.

    Oh snap! A new Harvey thread for us to beat this dead horse. I too worked in HARVEYWORLD and have since moved on to "greener" pastures (old name was itsme37). Harvey was a grand old time, you will hit the ground running and what you deal with there will prep you for advancement at other departments. If your ambition is to work for Naperville, Oak Brook, or Orland Park then you need not apply. They will probably never take a Harvey lateral. Anywhere else, you should be good as long as you go in, do your shift, arrest the baddies and go home to your family.
