    40 . . . 41 now. Never could have done it as effectively as I do now at any earlier age. It was the right time for me.

          I started as a reserve (non-sworn) at 19, got sworn in at 25!

            I started as a corrections officer at 20 which also counted as a year towards my police retirement. As soon as I become 21 I got lucky and was hired on at a Police department.

                    Fitdad, just remember one of my motto's:

                    "Old age and treachery can overcome youth and skill!"
                    "A man who has nothing which he cares about more than he does about his personal safety is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the existing of better men than himself."
                    John Stuart Mill

                          Started at 25. Woulda been sooner, but I do everything the hard way. Have 11 years in now and 14 to go. Glad I started at 25, cause we have hired a few at 18 and 19, who are just waaaaaay to inmature for the job. Not saying all that age are, but a couple came right outta high school, barely made it through the academy and had several alcohol related dicipline issues within the first year of being hired. Many NEVER had a real job before getting hired.

                          Ya need life experience before getting into this field. It is an awesome responsibility, one that most can"t handle at such a young age.
                          Being a good street cop is like coming to work in a wet suit and peeing in your pants. It's a nice warm feeling, but you're the only one who knows anything has happened.
