    That's the answer these days.... Get in, get trained, get experience and move on in a couple years to where you really want to go.

    I can't imagine being kicked to the street over some political bs. Some Big Wig's grandson wants a to be a LE Officer and guess who loses their job to give him that chance?
    Depends on where you are. Around here, all counties are civil service meaning that kind of thing can't happen.

    You need to research what the difference(s) are between 'at will' and 'civil service' agencies.....this will also vary between states as well.

    Here in CA, we have several legal protections, as well as civil service protection.

    I would have to do something REALLY stupid (or illegal, of course) to get fired out here.
    Likewise Iowa is a strong "right to work" state.
    However we have public collective bargaining AND/or Civil Service for most law enforcement agencies.

    ALL deputy sheriffs in Iowa are covered by Civil Service..............................

    I've worked in two at-will states.

    Never had a problem, if you do a good job and people like you, your chances of being fired are greatly reduced.

    An "at will " state. Most likely down south.

    Ok....I'm not as shocked as I was anymore. It took a min to soak in. Job security in the military has ruined me!

    That just seems so wrong to have the ability to fire someone without any wrong doing being involved.

    There are a lot of at will departments, just as there are a lot of civil service departments.

  • What kind of Agency is best to work for?(1 of 2 questions)

    I've always wanted to work for a County. Figured, that it would pay more than if I was hired by a city and also I would have a larger area of jurisdiction but while I was doing my research; I stumbled apon some information that made me stop and think maybe County isn't such a good idea. So this brings me to my 2 questions.

    First, What kind of Agency is best to work for?

    Second, Are all Counties like this example(below)?

    TERM OF EMPLOYMENT: All County Employees are “At Will” employees. “At Will” employment is not for a specific period of time and employment may be terminated at any time, without notice or liability of any kind (except for wages earned and unpaid) and with or without cause. Unless rehired by a newly elected supervising County official, employment shall cease at the conclusion of the county’s biennium (December 31st of even-numbered years).
