  • Attention LE ladies!

    Maybe I'm dumb but curious...

    I tell my family and friends that I'm going to change careers from a therapist (in which I have a master's degree...more to say that I have a lot of time and money invested than...look at me, I have higher education!) to law enforcement.

    Everybody is super supportive...nobody worried...not a single negative comment besides my sister that thinks all cops are power tripping a-holes. My husband has even supported me working less to prepare physically and mentally for all the hoops.

    I was ready to defend my decision, but instead I found my myself alone on the battlefield.

    Is this weird?

      Hi there Clarity,
      I'm in a similar boat. I'm a 31 yr old chick transitioning from Gov't/Defense contracting into LE... I definitely felt like I had to defend my reasoning; but what most fail to realize, is that I have had this desire and goal for most of my life. It took just a few rude comments from other people for me to quickly acknowledge that you shouldn't have to defend anything. I'm sure you don't judge her life, so she shouldn't judge yours. Best of luck in your journey and stay strong on your own beliefs.

          Your question could be better answered at my place with a little of this in the background. http://youtu.be/6sx3ZniKYj8

          Oh yeah. You will be very alone your whole career and tell your sister I said she is ugly.

            I appreciate you both preparing me to deal with d-bags on a regular basis.

            Obviously, intellect and maturity are not scored in your respective agencies. It gives hope to the millions of men currently sitting on thier couches grunting at the sight on cleavage on TV.

            Congratulations on finding one another to co-sign each others bull. If only I had that kind of testosterone deprived support, I'd be golden!

              If you are lucky enough to get the job, it is going to be a very long career if you don't get that great big bug out of your arse.

                Didn't we welcome you you properly? Shame on us! Welcome to O.Com, clarity253.

                Well, clarity...let me explain something to you. These Officers here on the O, whether they be male or female, are proven with each other. For the most part, the LEOs here support one another, tease one another, grieve for each other's losses and bust them off with regularity. They know one another, have been through all the crap and make no excuses....nor should they have to.
                You show up, a newbie to the O and ask your question. You get teased and take the offensive. Do they know you? No.
                Are you in process anywhere? You don't state so I believe. You have a dream, just like the guys and gals that are in now had at one time. Try reading some of the struggles written here. You'll find the same people supporting the candidate and then rejoicing with them when they make it onto an agency. It makes no matter if they are male or female either.

                So, get to know us before you judge. Not all of us are LEO's but we are here because we support them. I'm married to a LEO, but when I first came here, I wasn't. They still accepted me, answered my questions and made me part of the family.

                Get onto an agency, in an academy and go for your goals. I may even champion you at some point, ya never know. Good luck with it. But first, learn to take the grief. If you don't, you'll fail even before you start.

                    Hmm...so they can give me a hard time, but I can't do the same?

                        That's very classy, but your style is too committal too soon. I suggest starting off with something like--IL VOLO's "Un Amore Cosi Grande".

                          Since you have not worked one day in LE you have no ideal.

                          After 30+ years and seeing 100s come and go. I can tell you that you will not do well. i.e. your first partner will be a military Veteran with a GED or HS diploma, he'll do 30 pullups and run 1 1/2 miles in under 9 minutes and he is going to be upset he got stuck with a wimpy egghead. No offense intended but you are not going to a tea party.

                            Is a bottle of Jack and "Smokey and the Bandit" on DVD classy? I did quit smoking
