    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Help from current LEOs

    Well i took my written test and physical test and passed both for the police academy. Now there are 3 ways to get in. first is get hired on by a department which there are two currently doing so in my county and be sponsered. secound get a department to do an Autherized to attened (which i'll call AA). To get an AA the department does every thing as if they where hireing you background, fingerprints, poly and psyc. third is to self sponser wich means i pay the academy to do my background, fingerprint, poly and psyc.

    What i want to know is what people would suggest i would much rather go with option 1 or even better from my perspective is option 2. option 1 obviously because i'm guarnteed a job opon compleating the academy and i get paid the whole time while attending. but option 2 i think would be better because I know i will finish high in my class and could then get hired on mid academy by a department of my choice.

    secoundly any suggestion on how to go about getting my AA or geting sponsered. and any thing i should be exspechialy aware on in my aplication or for my poly?

    Guy I'm not sure you should ask a serious question here without cross referencing with people you can actually evaluate face to face. What does it say about you as a potential police officer that you have to come to a loosely moderated website and ask people who claim to be LEOs a serious question regarding your career choice?

    Anyone who has an LEO tag has been verified as such by the forum staff. Same with Military tags, Amateur/Pro fighter tags.
    The OP has asked an intelligent question in the correct forum.
    Please follow his example.

    If this is how you choose to express yourself in writing, or even remotely how you express yourself in speech, don't do the following:

    -Sponsor yourself

    However, if you do, don't do the following:

    -Hold your breath for getting a job afterward

    Consider it charitable that I reveal this to you in mutual anonymity, rather than loudly, cleverly, and repeatedly in front of 50 classmates (as will happen at an academy).

    How I speak and write formaly differ greatly from how a write and speak informaly. Expressing my self in a formal matter i am very delibrate in word choice.

    How ever when speaking or writeing where ever i just let what rolles off my head go straight to the page.

    So - they're going to be mean at the academy?

    I'd be fuckin sick of that kind of **** by now if I didn't find it so hilarious. I can't wait!

    We all make mistakes, and **** knows I've become so reliant on spellcheck that my spelling can be pretty terrible outside of a computer context (and FFS don't ask me to write with a pen), but... yours is attrocious. You need to make more of an effort, because it doesn't reflect well on you at all.

    This is just friendly advice, don't get defensive.
