    I don't know about your neck of the wood, but where I am you have to physically move in order to change your residency. Just changing your address on your license is called <b>lying</b> and it's even criminal here.

    And with that being the case: No, committing a crime by lying likely wouldn't help your chances.

    There are a few different county exams that are coming up that residents of the city/county get preference when getting on the social service list.

    So if I were to change my residency a couple times around would this look bad on applications? Also if I apply to different departments would this look bad?

    I really want to become an officer and I know it's very difficult.. it's also very competitive.

    I feel as if I dont have a chance if I'm not a current resident on that list.

    (My current residence is a home I just bought, our local PD is very small and tough to get into. They only offer a test once every couple years, and I dont think this year the test is available).
    Well, reading your post, I have a question for you. Wouldn't all that moving around be a little expensive? I really don't see that as a viable option. Preferences given or not, the secret is to test well. Your situation, if I understand it correctly, would be similar to an agency which allows Veteran's Preferences on it's exams. Non-veterans routinely test for positions within an agency, and many are selected, even without a preference. OTH, if residence in a given community is a requirement in order to test, or is required once employed, then you have an entirely different situation. However, simply moving around in order to obtain what in reality, is a small advantage doesn't seem to be in your best interests. Just my.02

    Well, I guess my question is.. do I even have a shot at becoming an officer in a town which I dont currently reside?

    I'm not an LEO, so this is not an answer. Just for clarification: Are you asking if it's OK to start your career with a lie???
