    Due to the requirements being pretty low(compared to surrounding agencies), don't be shock to be taking the entrance exam with 1000+ people.
    Ah looks like you're right, I must have got it mixed in with the rest, embarrassing. Thank you for the correction, I'll keep an eye on them too. I just completed their interest form.

I understand I can self-sponsor and academy isn't too pricey down there (compared to here) but ideally I'd find a job before I moved.

Just be aware that many agencies have you sign a 2 year contract. The contract usually states you will work for them for a minimum 2 years. If you decide to leave before then, you must pay X amount of dollars back to the agency due to the academy, uniforms, gear, etc. The closer you are to the 2 year mark, the cheaper it is.
    I'm fine with doing 2 years somewhere, it's a pretty short time in the grand sceme of things. Some other departments require more than that in paid full-time experience anyway. My Reserve experience doesn't seem to count.

    You will get some great experience with dart that's for sure. Things are changing at the department it seems and it's for the better. They aren't just hiring anyone
    Well that's good to hear.

    Stay away from DART.

Would the PD look down upon DART experience and certification versus having nothing but some reserve and nuclear experience?

    This is not my personel opion, but the general consensus o officers opinions I've heard over the years. And that is generally nobody takes dart of very seriously, and they are looked at as armed security basically.

    Just saw another posting on TML that Dart is hiring again...certified and non-cert officers.

    Looks like pretty good salary (coming from someone who works in the panhandle where we get payed crap) 42 starting for non cert and 44 starting for cert.

    I dont know much about how DART officers are viewed, much about the department but it might be a good gig w/pretty good pay benefits (from what little I have read)
