  • If you were not in Law Enforcement?

    If you were not in Law Enforcement as a career, what else do you think that you would do for a living? I would guess that for many on here it is a first choice, but is there something else you could see yourself doing if you were not a LEO?

    For me, a major part of my job is as a Firearms Instructor, but even if I were not involved in Law Enforcement, I could still see myself as a Firearms Instructor. Other than that, I can see myself as a historian, a writer, and a leathercrafter. I'm actually involved in these things now pretty heavy, but they are still secondary to my full time job.

    What about you guys?

    I would've either joined the military or become a firefighter. I'm big into both and am strongly considering joining a local FD as a volunteer/on-call FF.

    I guess I have what psychologist Dave Grossman (one of the main reasons I want to get into psychology) refers to as the "sheepdog" personality. Basically a need/desire to be there to help and protect other people from the "wolves" of society.
    Nobody ever wants to have to fight, but its a darn good idea for someone to know how.

      I'd start an escort service for all the right reasons and set up shop at the top of Four Seasons....

              Well...since I'm only a part-timer, I'd have to say National Guard. Now, if I weren't a teacher AND a part-timer, I'd say the military....which is what I originally started to do waaaay back in '83.

                  EMS was the most fun job I ever had. If it payed enough to survive on I'd still be doing it. Otherwise I'd be a Hornet driver in the USMC (I got to "fly" a simulator at USMC Air Station El Toro years ago and loved it .)

                  I can see myself happily spending my whole career with my current SO, but if that does't work out I've always been interested in the US Naval Criminal Investigation Service.

                    I had only been at University for about a month when I was accepted into training. If I had carried on with University, I would have gone into Chemical Engineering. Therefore, I traded an iron ring for a gold shield!

                    However, I am thinking that it MAY be time to either go sell cars or fight for the greeter's job at Wal-Mart (if they ever get around to building one here), thus trading a gold shield for a bad suit or a blue apron!

                      Well, if I was qualified, I'd say airline pilot so i could make the big money. My 2nd choice would have been a firefighter or Nat'l Park Ranger.

                      If it paid enough, I'd live in a small town and work at a ski hill/mountain and snowboard on all me free time. As it is, I've thought about lateralling (sp?) to a department in a ski town but don't have the gumption to pull up the stakes and start all over again...not after 17 years in one place.

                        Something more creative, but practical like Graphic Design or something having to do with the visual arts. I love photography, film, computer graphics, and stuff.

                            I would probably get back into computers and work as a Techie.

                              I'd be either a fireman or a history teacher. I still may do both of them.
