    Ditto, When I first started in 86 as a reserve it was real skinny. Now FTW, Dallas, Dart Transit are all hiring huge numbers because of attrition to other agencies or retirement. Even D/FW airport has 35 openings at last count

    Good luck in NJ. On average, hundreds of people to choose from for 1 position. Most are already trained. No academy under your belt, good luck. In my agency, which hires off of the civil service list (given statewide every 2 years, residents hired first) there is no less than 300 people on the list. Most likely, we'll hire between 10 within that period.

    With the great pay, great pension and the other benefits, NJ is extremely competitive place to get hired.

    Gonna have clown cars driving around staffed to the brim with officers in it.

    This might not be a great time to be looking for a job- even in law enforcement. I know many agencies are looking at a bleak budget with gas prices going up and tax income down.

    My agency is suspending hiring and has stopped recruiting at job fairs.

    When I first started the application process, it was in the mid 1970's. There was double digit inflation, lots of unemployment and tons of ex-military (Vietnam vets) looking to get into law enforcement. One only needed a high school diploma or GED to qualify. There were literally hundreds of applicants for each opening and it didn't take much to get DQ'd or simply passed over for another applicant.

    One test I took was a written/oral process that created a list from which seven local police departments would then select the top applicants for further processing (backgrounds, physical, polygraph, psych testing) and ultimately employment. More than 3000 applicants tested, I came out #23 on the list and still didn't get hired. There were a lot more qualified applicants then openings in those days!

    This is the key. If you only want to serve your local community then obtaining a job in LE might be a little more difficult. If you just want to be a LEO and you don't care about your location then, as long as your background is clear, you should not have too many problems find employment. Someone is always hiring, locals, states, or Feds a job awaits.

    started a topic Demand for LEO's?...

    Demand for LEO's?...

    When you applied how was the demand/job market for LEO's?...Was there a need for a lot of LEO's, or was it hard getting a job (not hiring LEO's or other obstacles)?...
