  • Lateral from IL

    I tried searching but wasn't able to locate much useful info. The wife is applying for jobs in the Blacksburg Radford area which means so am I. I am certified LE in IL and just wondering if I will need to be attending academy again in Virginia or what it takes to transfer the certification in? Thank you in advance for any assistance and Stay safe!

    You will still have to go to a VA academy. Hopefully you only have to go to certain portions of the academy rather than the whole thing.

        Those are all pretty good departments. Look to see if VT police department is hiring also. I've heard nothing but great things about their department, but its hard to get on there.

          Thank you tj05. You wouldn't happen to have any idea when some of those departments listed might hold testing in the near future would ya? I know around these parts a lot of agencies test in the fall and spring, didnt know if that holds true out to the east also or not?

                You probably won't be applying to Chesterfield based on the distance from Blacksburg, but I know laterals in our department went through a condensed (basic) academy. It focused more on county policies and VA laws, as well as the more fun parts of the academy - weapons qual, driving, etc. Also, our laterals were treated as sworn members from day 1 in the academy.

                  I see there is a Roanoke County and Roanoke City Police Departments. Are they one in the same or what are the main differences other than a larger patrol area for the county I'm guessing??
