  • Want to get this right....

    Hi My name is Eli I am 29 years old I have a BA in Sociology I am in the reserves (top secret clearance) (Q) and have been working the past six years on government facilities as a security officer/supervisor. I am at the final stage with The Chicago Police hiring process, I really would like to work for Chicago PD, however I am developing more of a passion for federal LE, mainly the FBI. I was considering going to law school and then apply to the Feds, and if it didn't work out I would practice criminal law or use it for the military. Given my age, do you think I am making a reasonable realistic choice?

    What's the age cut off to be an agent 36? Did you want to be an FBI Agent or just do intel for the FBI. Why would you rather be an FBI agent than a police officer are you interested in working child pornography, piracy, and other cyber crimes.

    What do you want to do?

      Yep it's 37. I'm interested in being a Special agent, I'm getting drawn to the investigative side of the coin and I want to get involved in investigations of counterterrorism, gangs, sex trafficking.

        I think I answered my own question due to a good nights rest. I will stick with PD process but still apply to law schools. If PD works out I can use the law degree to my advantage as not only a backup plan should something happen and or retirement "investment" but also to take part in possibly going into legal affairs within the dept. Plus the dept has many task forces that work with the Feds, of course that is done after paying my dues and learning how to be the police on the street. This way I can see the federal role beyond the glamour and decide if I really want to go that route. I could also stay reserves and go JAG if need be.

          Eli, you state that you're 29 years old. If you're unable to make a choice by now, you probably never will be. I realize that sounds a little harsh, but it's reality.

          You (Eli) weigh the options. You do some research, maybe you do a lot of research. You do some soul searching, and thinking that no one on these forums can do for you. Get to work. Make a choice, and the best of luck in whatever you decide.

            At this point, I'd stick with your process with Chicago....
