    List of states that will hire LEO's with just Green Cards / Permanent Residence -

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Hey everyone,

    Some of you might remember me - some of you wont!. Im a british Citizen who is here legally in the US with a Green card.

    Prior to emmigrating here i was a Police officer of 5 years service with the Metropolitan Police, London England. Now that im here id Like to get back into law enforcement but was hampered from joining in my home state of Florida as im a non-citizen.

    So after some research myself and the help of several members on here ive complied a state by state list of those who require citizenship and those who dont.

    I hope that it is of use to anyone like myself, here goes -

      Its right here -

      From the Oklahoma "CLEET" Website, a direct cut and paste. read part 2, subsection B.

      If oklahoma CLEET - a state department doesnt require it, its actually against federal law for an individual department to require citizenship if the "higher up" state agency doesnt require it

      From the website -

      2. No person shall be certified as a police or peace officer in this state unless the employing agency has reported to the Council that:

      a. the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation and the Federal Bureau of Investigation have reported that such person has no record of a conviction of a felony or crime involving moral turpitude,

      b. such person has undergone psychological evaluation such as the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory, the California Psychological Inventory (CPI), or other psychological instrument approved by the Council on Law Enforcement Education and Training. The psychological instrument utilized shall be evaluated by a psychologist licensed by the State of Oklahoma, and the employing agency shall certify to the Council that the evaluation was conducted in accordance with this provision and that the employee/applicant is suitable to serve as a peace officer in the State of Oklahoma. Nothing herein shall preclude a psychologist licensed in the state from employing additional psychological techniques to assist the employing agency's determination of the employee/applicant's suitability to serve as a peace officer in the State of Oklahoma. Any person found not to be suitable for employment or certification by the Council shall not be employed, retained in employment as a peace officer, or certified by the Council for at least one (1) year, at which time the employee/applicant may be re-evaluated by a psychologist licensed by the State of Oklahoma. This section shall also be applicable to all reserve peace officers in the State of Oklahoma,

      c. such person possesses a high school diploma or a GED equivalency certificate, provided this requirement shall not affect those persons who are already employed as a police or peace officer prior to November 1, 1985,

      d. such person is not participating in a deferred sentence agreement for a felony or a crime involving moral turpitude,

      e. such person has attained twenty-one (21) years of age prior to certification as a peace officer,

      f. such person has provided proof of United States citizenship or resident alien status, pursuant to an employment eligibility verification form from the United States Immigration and Naturalization Service, and[/SIZE]g. the name, gender, date of birth, and address of such person have been presented to the Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services by the Council. The Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services shall respond to the Council within ten (10) days whether the computerized records of the Department indicate the applicant has ever been involuntarily committed to an Oklahoma state mental institution. In the event that the Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services reports to the Council that the applicant has been involuntarily committed, the Council shall immediately inform the employing agency,

      and the Council has determined that such person has satisfactorily completed a basic police course of not less than one hundred sixty (160) hours of accredited instruction for reserve police officers and reserve deputies and not less than three hundred (300) hours for full-time salaried police or peace officers from the Council or curriculum or course of study approved by the Council; provided, the Council may increase the number of hours for the completion of a basic police course by requiring independent study. Beginning January 1, 2003, the basic police course for full-time-salaried police or peace officers shall be increased to not less than three hundred two (302) hours. Said training shall include training in crime and drug prevention, crisis intervention, and youth and family intervention techniques and recognizing, investigating and preventing abuse and exploitation of elderly persons.

                  Holy biscuit barrel, nice work! Now, where is a list of academies, within states which will take green card holders, which require citizenship for you to pass their course. They exist. No academy - no POST certificate - no job. Welcome to America.

                              I doubt that you go around and ask PO "Are you citizen?"
