  • At what age did you get on the job?

    Just looking for a general consensus here. Had a meeting with a local Lieutenant and from what he said is that I really dont have that good of a chance of getting hired until im about 23. Im 21 now so i'll have a few years to go until i stand a chance. Thanks guys.

        Sworn in at 20. The chief who took over after the chief who swore me in left (no, the two events are not related) told me that he didn't like to hire anyone who wasn't at least 26 or so years old.

          21 just a little less than a month from my 22nd birthday, that was 1995.

                      Fairly recent here. I've been on now for nearly a year. I started at 25. I know my agency does hire 21 year olds. There were 1 or 2 in my class. Truth be told, one of the 21 year old guys was more mature than even some of the 30 year olds.
