  • New here/want to be an officer! Adivice?

    Hey yall. Ever since I can remeber I have wanted to be a LEO. Now, Im finally making steps to get there.
    Im a Freshman at Georgia Southern University with a major in Justice Studies. I have done 2 ride alongs and abosulity love it. I have a few questions:

    Do most agencies see a college education as a plus?

    Is it usually difficult to get hired at a young age (22)?

    And finally, I have made a horriable mistake in my past. Nothing crazy, my school took the incident on file. The police took no action towards the case. I have "heard" that most LEO jobs do VERY, VERY extensive background check (internet files, social networking sites, online forums, etc). Would a simple mistake be an issue toward getting a job?

    Thanks so much!

    Depends on the "mistake"...
