  • From Michigan

    I posted this over on the career forum, but figured I'd put it here,too.
    Great site, I look forward to gaining some good info and hopefully posting as a law enforcement officer in the future...

    Hi,

    I am in the process of going through the steps to become a law enforcement officer in Michigan and am looking for any tips or any inside advice I can find from officers on this forum.

    At 33 I am a late arrival. Though I indended to pursue becoming a police officer after high school, I changed paths during college and went into the automotive industry, like most of my family, after being tempted by great salaries and an easy way in because I knew people...based on the current state of the industry I don't have to say how that ended (Layoff) I have since been working in retail LP but it is not what I truly want and I have decided to pick up where I left off. Luckily I have stayed in shape!

    I have scheduled my civil service exam for the state (October) and will be taking my MCOLES reading/writing exam on the 13th of this month. I also have a 4 year Bachelors degree, although it is in business communications, not CJ. Unfortunately I have not been through an academy and am looking at departments that will either put me through (state) or find a department that may conditionally hire if I put myself through...a long shot I know. I just can't afford to stop working and pay for an academy without some kind of back-up plan.

    I'm looking for people to see what they did or are doing, especially in Michigan. I have done a lot of research and know I am limited in the state, but would like to exhaust my options here before looking elsewhere. Sorry for the long bio, I figured it would help to see who is in a similar spot. Thanks so much for the help!
