Thanks for the advice everyone. I really appreciate the insight and help. I was a little discouraged by what he said, so, to be honest, was not only looking for the advice but a little reassurance as to the path I'd chosen as well. I'm feeling good about this again.
Btw Bearcat, what area of history are you most interested in? I like ancient the best, but am finding the 1700's- the early 1800's to be quite fascinating as well. I don't have a concentration, just General History, but everything up to the middle 1800's I like the best."A nation, as a society, forms a moral person, and every member of it is personally responsible for his society."
-Thomas Jefferson, 1792

To be honest the Thompson (semi <sigh>) is my wifes. Gave it to her for her birthday one year. So she got me a Bushmaster M-4 type for Christmas. Ah, a match made in heaven!

Plus ladies and gentlemen that are not LE here. If you haven't figured it out other LE members such as the Feds, State, and Locals are able to help each other find new jobs. But to get those jobs you have to have a degree in something. That is why you always see us in school. We are striving for more and to be better on paper to these people. Its all about making yourself look good on paper.Being the best is not what always counts. What counts is always trying your best.
Remember who you are, and where you came from. That way you never get a big head.
May those that lost their lives in 9-11 RIP, for the things you did not many could do. You left so many behind so that you could save so few. For now we stand strong as one, and will not look back till the fight is done. (me)

I've been going to CJ night classes for a couple of years, and plan to start Police Academy at night in January (I finally found one where I think I can survive physically!!!).
One thing I noticed about Police Academy is that it's not once or twice a week, it's EVERY FRIGGIN' DAY!!! Since I have a day job, I'm hoping that at least the the knowledge I gained in CJ classes (especially about the Penal Codes) will help me keep up even when I don't have time to study.
Maybe that's an irrational hope, but if so I guess all I did is waste my $300 enrollment fee in part I of Police Academy plus the thousand or more I've spent on CJ classes.
Oh excuse me, Part III of Police Academy
Part I doesn't start till Fall 2007 but they said I could take them out of order. This may be a very bad decision.

There is another route, you can try to get hired as young as possible (usually 21) and then work on your degree as you get tenure on the job. Your first couple of years will be undergraduate work anyway. You won't be promotable for around 5 years, so by then you will have your degree in CJ if you like law enforcement. You will usually know in a couple of years if you don't like being a cop, so you have time. Mean while, you will be working towards all of our ultimate goal, retirement. But I would recommend that every cop take a few classes in the middle of their career, because it gives you a new perspective on life. We can get pretty closed minded and sitting in class with twenty people challenging your opinions makes you take stock in why you hold your beliefs. It is a lot of fun.
By the way, there are a few other things other than hard drugs and criminal activity you have to worry about. Make sure you keep your credit in order because that is definitely a disqualifier in many departments. Also, as mentioned before, traffic tickets are a negative if they are moving violations.
But be advised, when you step into the law enforcement field, it can be very addicting. I am pushing 34 years as a leo and still wake up every morning and laugh because I can't believe I get paid to do what I do. I love it.
Good luck to you.

Find a department you want to work for...then fill out an application. Once this is done then you take a power test or any variation there of, a written test, a psych, and an oral. Make sure to pass all these. Then hope an opening comes up and you get it. That is one easy way... another is for your dad/mom to be a chief, sheriff, board member, or mayor, governer, etc..... and have him/her get you in politically. Or watch the movie Blue Streak...this might help as well.If you run from me...you'll just go to jail tired!
