    Words of encouragement guys and I appreciate it a lot! I'm still dancing around the MBA idea so hopefully 2010 will bring good news.

    If you can get a Masters in something that would benefit you either way, that's what I would do. There are accredited courses available through many colleges completely online and mostly at your own pace.

    Something like an MBA in management or public administration is what I would do.

    You just gotta give it time. I came from a family of law enforcement and could not wait to wear the badge, I got hired just after my 21st birthday.

    In my opinion being a cop is just a job. If I could find another job to pay more than I would do it. Around here it pays good and with great benefits- family health insurance is free. Other than that you can wear a gun in more places the general law abiding public with ccw's can't. Also job security is there in this day and age when most jobs don't have that. Thats the plus in being a cop.

    The downfalls- you can get sued, fired and a bunch of other stuff for not nessarliy doing anything wrong. A guy I work with had a racial profiling complaint against him got verified through the state and now it's on his record for good. The agency did not back him up in any reguard. If someone does not care for you on a traffic stop they file a complaint in which they make stuff up and god only hopes there is video and audio that does not get lost to benefit you, the agency backs them up first and your left hanging out to dry. I work my tour (shift) and when I'm off, I am just a armed citizen who is patriotic and prepared for anything. It only took five years to change my opinion.

    No it was the run that DQ'd me. I knew going in I needed to work on getting my time down but I didn't push as hard as I thought I did that day.

    I'm definitely pushing forward and won't stop till I wear the badge. I know my story isn't a unique snowflake in this storm of people trying to hired on but this phrase is one I hear often. haha

    I have and I'm keeping my chin up. I've applied to alot of out of state agencies such as Virginia(DQed unfortunitely(sp?)), I am waiting on a call/email to go down to Montgomery County,Maryland to test for the written and physical agility. I did take the Rochester, NY exam and University Police exam. So I'm getting my name out there and hoping for the best.

    Once I decided to change careers it took me 6 years to get hired, I went through the hiring freezes of the early 90's. Keep at it and don't give up.

    Anybody who has gone through more than one process feels like you do at one time or another.

    You will notice the folks on here that can't spell to save their lives getting hired, you will see the biggest ****** at the test get hired and fired within six months, you will see constant news stories about a brand new officer doing something insanely stupid, etc, etc.....

    All of them will bother you. I would say be patient, though I understand it's pretty much impossible.

    So instead I will say this: Press On. There is a mission to complete here, do what you need to do to complete it.

Not sure if it's the testing or not getting a call back from any department I applied to but it's not going so well.

    Anyway, I've contemplated going back to school for my masters to maybe move up the corporate ladder for where I work now, but my friends are always telling me, "So and So's son just got accepted to this academy" or "Your cousin just finished the interview process for this police Dept". It's getting to the point where I look at them with a "confused,upset" look on my face.

    I have my local county test coming up Nov 2010 so I'm gonna push for high 90's and hopefully land the job I've wanted since I was little.

    Anyone else get this phrase alot? I know there are alot of people in a similar situation, not gonna lie, it sucks but I'm holding my head high and hoping for the best.
    Patience. I realized a long time ago that if I was patient, good things would happen for me.

    10 years from now, when you are wearing that uniform, you will laugh at this post.
