  • Greetings from retired Navy (22years) just moved back to CT.

    Greetings all. I just retired from 22 great years in the Navy and moved back to CT. My military training has been on Law Enforcement, Anti-Terrorism and Force Protection, Firearms Training and Special Warfare. I have been looking for a police officer job and had plans on State Police... until I went for the physical and was told I could not go further because I had a shark tattoo on my calf... So I took the corrections test and have been waiting for that as well as applying for other police departments. I have been excepted for a Federal Agent job with the Office of Secure Transportation but that is in New Mexico and I would rather stay here in CT. So that is a little about me.... Hope to find something soon and good luck to the rest of you looking for a job.

                      Hello fellow Connecticutican (is that a word?) I too am branching into other Law Enforcement. Cant believe the tattoo snub but other departments are less stringent.

                        Yeah, that tattoo policy really stinks, but not much I can do about it. I can see where they are coming from but that doesn't mean I have to like it... lol Who knows maybe they will readdress it, but really, with the number of applicants they are receiving I don't think they will... it is not hurting them.
