    Hello everyone

    Hello my name is Ryan (rdawg67). I 40 yrs old. and have recently decided to switch careers. I have applied at three area dept. and I'm looking forward to a new exciting career in law enforcement. I currently in background with two Local Sheriffs dept. and California Corrections. I flew threw the hiring processes with the Sheriffs, but after turning in my background packet over ten weeks ago, I still haven't heard from anyone. I scored very high on the Ca. Corrections, and turn in my packet with them this week. I like your site and look forward to speaking with you all.

    Welcome from Louisiana. Good luck, hope things work out.
    Wise men stand behind me, brave men stand beside me, but only fools stand against me.

    The force that propels you to prevail when you are put to a test of survival will be a mindset that refuses to accept nothing but winning.

    Too often, we lose sight of life's simple pleasures. Remember, when someone annoys you it takes 42 muscles in your face to frown, BUT, it only takes 4 muscles to reach out and bitch slap that motherf*cker upside the head.

    I was in Retail for years and now self-employed window tinter. I serviced our police, sheriffs, Da's office as well as Parole. I have a lot (and made) friends that are Law enforcement. I recently became a father, and suddenly my priority's have changed.

    Welcome! Good luck with the process... Are you in SoCal? A lot of the local departments are saying their total process time is between 4-8 months... The recruiter guy I am dealing with at LASD told me to be patient (which is a virtue that I have not mastered!)

    Howdy!

    The whole backgrounds process can take awhile...like Illy said, just be patient.

    And best of luck to you.
