    To some extent this is true, but look at it from this angle:

    If your goal is to become a police officer with Olathe, then volunteer experience with the department, learning the ins and outs, policies and procedures for their department would put you a step ahead of the competition, and possibly introduce you to the folks that make the big decisions. A favorable position to be in.

    Why does it have to be 'either/or'? Being a CO, AND volunteering looks pretty good on a resume, even if Olathe isn't on your horizons...

    I was wondering if I should inquire into this. My ultimate goal is to become a police officer. Would this be worth my time? I already work for Jackson County as a Correctional Officer in the jail. Should I just stick with that or will this as a side venture make me look better to a prospective agency? Thank you for any replies.
