    Can anyone tell me if there is a website in michigan that displays departments who are hiring. Here in Kansas there is a site that shows all the departments in Kansas hiring at this time. Also, does michigan except out of state certified officers or will I have to go to another academy.

    www.mcoles.org

    It is the michigan commission on law enforcment standards website. There is a list of postings there. ALSO on that web site there is information about recognizing prior experience. Just go to it and you can navigate around the site for any information u might need.

            Not usually a Bachelors, but an Associates. A lot of depts don't require anything, just as long as you have been through an academy. I have found, but maybe other people would know more, that the depts that have more money are the ones that require some sort of degrees.

              departments might not require anything but MCOLES does. I believe your required to have an associates degree prior to attending, the equivalent of 60 credits or obtain an associates degree as a result of graduating the academy...I think you can pretty much see this trend...the more prodominate the area the department is in and the more money the department has to spend greatly affects the level of educations and more importantly professionalism of the people it desires to hire. For example if your department is in an area where 90% of the people in the community are educated with a Bachelors degree and higher, setting a model example as a police officer is going to alot more difficule if you dont have an equivalent level of education. It is the true for the opposite end of the spectrum as well...but if im wrong...I apologize for providing false and impractical info :P

                Why are you looking to come to Michigan??? The jobs in this state are very scarce right now, and you might want to rethink the decision unless you have to move to the state.

                  Yeh, I used to live in Michigan and the departments here in Kansas suck. To many officers wanting to play cop and burn each other to get ahead. When I used to live in Michigan, it seemed that officers wanted to do their jobs and protected each other. But I have only a year of college but ten years of experience as an officer. I have even started looking at Ohio departments.

                    With 10 years of experience on the job, I bet you won't have a problem finding a job anywhere, I would go somewhere warm though if I were to move...FLORIDA!

                      I would stay out of Michigan if I were you. Any state has better jobs chances then we do right now.

                      Hell if my wife would let me move, it would be either NYC, LA, Chicago, or any of the other BIG departments. Just so much growth opportunity.

                      Not to down this state and jump the band wagon, but I really don't think michigan will improve much with Jenny behind the wheel

                        Stealing from the Future

                        I agree with the above post. The State of Michigan is in some serious trouble, with no light at the end of the tunnel.

                        Here is an artical from Mackinac Center For Public Policy that describes the uncertain times Michigan is in and heading for:

                        http://www.mackinac.org/article.aspx?ID=8630

                        "Actually, the state and almost every local government are burdening the unborn in the same way as the city of Lansing. It’s estimated that the state has accumulated $35 billion in unfunded pension and retiree health care commitments. Municipalities owe billions more."

                        Even if we have a LE job, future promised benefits may not be there 25 years from now. That should answer anyones question if they are thinking about moving out of state.

                          To go to these other big departments, you have to go through their academy don't you? If not, what are the requirements?

                            That depends solely on the Department in question. For instance, when the Michigan State Police was Hiring (oh so long ago) even if you already had a Police Academy and a degree under your belt you still had to go through their academy.
