  • I'm a wannabe

    Hey folks. Just checking in and glad to be here. I'm a self professed wannabe a cop. I'm nearing my time to retire from the Air Force and I plan on starting a new life in LE. Right now I'm a surgical assistant, but have always wanted to be a cop. I've already thrown a few apps around and actually got as far as the Inwald 5 in Mont. Al. Apparently I didnt score what they wanted me to, so that DC'd the process there. I can only assume it's because I was totally forthcoming about my temper. I've been told I need to check it sometimes. In my 19+ years in the AF I've been stationed in Texas, Korea, Alabama (near my hometown of Elmore), Turkey, and deployed to Iraq. City, State, County,,,it don't matter. I just want to be a LEO. I've served my country, now I'd like to serve a community. Any advice for an old soon to be retired fart would be appreciated.

        That is correct. I'm 39. As far as I know, for local and state LE (Alabama)there's no age cap. So far, I can meet/exceed the minimum requirements for entrance into an APOST academy. Off and on I've been training for about a year (just in case you're wondering.) I realize there's more to LE than running a 1.5 mile and doing some push ups though. I believe I will be a good cop.

          Come to Florida, no age limit here. In fact we have a retired Lieutenant Colonel from the Air Force that just started with us.

            Or you can come over to CBP we have no age cap either, and it's still federal, so you're able to be more flexible with where you want to work and still get paid good money.

              Well, I'd say with your skill set you would be an asset to anywhere you wish to go. Are you thinking of staying in TX or do you have someplace else in mind?

                As soon as I get the chance, we are pulling up the stakes and heading back to Alabama. I've already tried Montgomery PD and didn't make it past the Inwald 5.
