  • Is it too late?

    Hi all!

    Thank you for taking the time read this. I'll make this short.

    I've always dreamed of being a cop. Yes you've heard it a million times, I know. My question is, is it too late?

    My Bio:
    -39 year old, male
    -Bachelor's degree in Marketing
    -Currently employed as a Strategic Marketing Planner: Automotive (12 years)
    -Reside in Southeast Michigan

    Okay, there you have it. So, is it still possible to become a police officer?

    For those who are involved in the hiring process, how would I be viewed by potential employers?

    More questions:
    What’s the best way to begin this process?
    Where else can go to get information?

    Thanks

    FWIW......I attained certification at 37 and am fast approaching 20 yrs OTJ.
    Rule #1 - If it doesn't change supper it's not worth the worry.
    Rule #10 - YOU ARE NOW THE MINORITY. This country is no longer the one your parents knew. You will not be able to understand it. You will not be able to change it. You must learn to live with it.

      I just switched agencies. moved out of state and am in the academy now. i'm 39 years old and i'm not the oldest in my class. the average age in my group of deputies is about thirty. so it's not too late.

      best advise how to begin...just apply at the agency you are interested in.
