  • 6 law enforcement references.. What should i do?

    I'm currently filling out the personal information packet and stuck at the reference section where I need to put my personal and law enforcement references. As for my personal references, its ok. But I do not have any relationship with police officers or any sorts.... Is there any tips on getting through this?

    Think of your last arrest:

    1) Arresting officer
    2) Booking officer
    3) Officer who took your fingerprints
    4) Desk sergeant
    5) Lieutenant on duty
    6) Watch commander

    There's your six. Go and ask nicely and I'm sure they'll do it for you.

    All kidding aside, shouldn't be too difficult to figure this one out. If you've run into a brick wall, go ask someone who can steer you in the right direction. Any answers you receive from us are at best "educated guesses".

    Good luck!
    Getting shot hurts! Don't under estimate the power of live ammo. A .22LR can kill you! I personally feel that it's best to avoid being shot by any caliber. Your vest may stop the bullet, but you'll still get a nice bruise or other injury to remember the experience.

      List 6 personal references. You don't need law enforcement references at all.

            Any tips on getting through this??. List all the people who could act as references for you at Warner Brothers. See where I'm going with this?

            If you don't have any LE references, you so state. Or, you could,,,,,,,,,,,,,no, don't do that.

                    You could always just speed up and down the streets until you get pulled over and then ask the officer to use them as a reference.

                      Don't forget Reed and Malloy?

                      In all seriousness OP, make sure you read over the instructions carefully. It should be six references period but, then again, places vary in what they want.

                          Not having a member of LE as a reference is usually not an issue. I would be surprised to know that they want you to list actual LEOs when the vast majority of folks making application don’t really know any cops.

                          My suggestion would be to seek clarification from the agency in question.

                            Just watch a few episodes of COPS and put the officers names that you see as references.

                            You're welcome.

                            Why is it acceptable for you to be an idiot, but not acceptable for me to point it out?

                              Having references for law enforcement is only optional. Should not be required. Just list your personal references, friends or business etc.
