    Out of State Lateral to TN

    Okay, so I am actually giving serious thought to getting out of FL and perhaps looking into TN. I spoke with TBI and bound out that TN will accept my certification from down here. Now I just need to get an idea of where to begin to look department wise. Any suggesstions are appreciated
    In law enforcement, the customer is ALWAYS wrong.

    In God we trust. Everyone else is run through NCIC.

    Sometimes there is justice. Sometimes there is just us.

    I'd rather be tried by 12 then carried by 6.

    Apparently Memphis if you want some action. But what is so special about TN anyway? It's all mountains and trees. And country music.

    Really depends on what you're looking for. Big City life? Small rural area? Speed Trap? Political department? Non-political department (good luck)?
    Tech savy latest stuff department?

    Sorry, I should have been more specific. I am looking to work for a fairly large department. Been there done that with the small thing. Would like at least 100+, prefer larger. Technology is important to me as well. I will check out the sites for the ones you mentioned above.

    Keep the ideas coming.

    Any of those would be good choices. You'll note I didn't suggest Memphis, we prefer to recommend people run for their lives...

    Also, you've got Brentwood, TN Bartlett, TN, and some others. what area of TN are you looking at? West/Middle/East TN?

    And what payscale are you looking at, keeping in mind i'm sure from Florida, everything will seem really low paying up here, but it doesn't cost quite that much to live up here though...

    To be honest with you, I have not given much thought to area. I do not know the difference. I have seen pay from $30 through $37. All of which seems really low, but again I am told cost of living is much lower too.
