Some questions for regular LEOs as well as SWAT...
Alright guys. First, I've got to say that you have an excellent forum going on here. :) Looks great. I'm very interested in going with a career in law enforcement. I had a few questions for some LEOs:
-Let's say that I was to go to a Police Academy somewhere. Then, lets say something comes up, and I quit with whatever current department I am with. Would I still be considered a LEO (tecnically or mentally).
-A question for SWAT officers: How do the majority of departments get their gear? Do they give officers a certain amount of money and tell them to buy whatever? Do they give them a certain list of standards to go by when they make purchaces? Or do the majority of deparments supply their tactical team's gear?
Thanks ahead of time. These are a few things I've been wanting to know for a while. :)
