      24 when I was officially sworn in, but you could say I started this job right out of the womb. I'm a third generation cop. (One of five in three generations too.)

          Ive been trying since i was 18 so its a little frustrating when I am not taken. I will have my associates this may and i'll be 22 in June so hopefully that will put me closer to my goal.

              20 when I started working in the jail, 22 when I was sworn in as a Deputy. I didn't mess around.

                  I was 22 years and 5 months old when I got hired as a jail deputy and 23 years and 10 months old when I went on the road.
                  To be honest I don't remember too much about losing my virginity. All I remember is I had been awake for almost 86 hours, I was on the roof of a Public Storage building in what seemed to be a freezing rainstorm, and Christopher Walken was there with a disposable camera that he kept winding even though it had clearly run out of pictures.

                    I was 20 and a few months when I started applying (earliest they would allow at that time here in LA), just over 21 when hired, almost 22 by the time I finished the academy.......23 when I hit patrol. I started in 1988.

                        For the people who started under 21 years of age, in the states that you live in, what is the age in which you can possess a hand gun? In my state a person has to be 21 in order to carry a handgun and I always here the stories about the 19 year old recruit who gets hired because he is related to the Captain or something of that nature. Doesn't really make sense to me because they can't really be a part of all aspects of the job.

                          21 to BUY. 18 to possess. Yes, it's that simple.

                                The academy teaches you skills, the street gives you experience, but it all comes down to your instinct.
