    Just care for your children and sleep tight
    Iíll keep you safe on my watch tonight

    Heh...depending on what the cost of living is, maybe I should lateral out there. I only make $5900 a month now anyway, and that's in So Cal.

    Just don't stop any professional football players on the way to the hospital.

    Meanwhile, fishing in Russia:

    I don't appreciate the age discrimination. I can meet all the physical and time of service requirements, but I'm over 44. They think they're the Feds?
    The six o'clock rule
    I tell them to act according to the six o'clock rule, a phrase that causes most of them to say, "Huh?"
    I tell them to use this little test before they decide to do something. If they were to do what they're thinking about, and it became the lead story on the six o'clock news, would they be proud? Would their department be proud, and would their family be proud? It's a simple way to live your life both personally and professionally.

    Well, if I hurry up and go I can make the age requirement.

    And the physical fitness portion...geesh...piece of cake (even injured).

    Salary a bit low but depends on the cost of living. But do I really want to move to Texas where I dont know anyone and dont have family?

    I know, someone should sue them... I think they're civil service, but not sure if that's the reason. I think the REAL reason is that the Brass doesn't want anyone working for them who is more experienced than they are.

    You can put in a city name here, then click "Cost of Living".
    Sperling's BestPlaces

    Dallas is significantly lower, I'm sure mostly in housing costs and taxes - We have no state income tax, for one thing.


    Cost of Living - California, Santa Clara County
    Our cost of living indices are based on a US average of 100. An amount below 100 means Santa Clara County, CA is cheaper than the US average. A cost of living index above 100 means Santa Clara County, CA is more expensive.

    Overall, Santa Clara County, CA cost of living is 185.19.

    Cost of Living - Texas, Dallas County
    Our cost of living indices are based on a US average of 100. An amount below 100 means Dallas County, TX is cheaper than the US average. A cost of living index above 100 means Dallas County, TX is more expensive.

    Overall, Dallas County, TX cost of living is 88.33.

    We are definitely discriminated against by age. I submitted my app and got denied,,, said I was too old

    I am going to file a law suit All kidding aside,,, 44 seems low to me for an age cut off.
    To be a good Law Enforcement Officer you MUST know the law!

    Heaven forbid they get a few people with experience. Why don't they just go hang out at the high school and recruit the football team.....send them to a six month academy and put them on the street. I feel safer already. OH, I forgot about the two years in college where they learn how to drink beer from a hose, and run around the dorm in their underwear trying to remember where they hid the bong...........

    This was in no means a insult to the youth in law enforcement today. We have some really great guys, and soon they will have the experience needed to become excellent leaders. But I've been on calls with an active shooter and a young officer in front of me looked around and made the comment, "try not to shoot me in the ass"....I told him not to worry, because if I wanted to shoot him in the ass, he'd get shot in the ass, and the only thing he would be able to do is scream "help me!, I've been shot in the ass!" I turned in my M16 to the USMC five years before he was born.
