    in my old home town, the local PD had a program for high school seniors to do ride alongs. they got a spiffy little uniform (polo shirt with silk screen badge and black BDU pants, and walkie talkie) they got to ride along, write witness reports and call in orders to dennys and dunkin donuts.

    i know you're not 18 anymore, but ask around about something like that. also, police auxillary might be a good way to start out.

    The job is what you make it. I don't recommend it to you if you're the kind of guy who got his lunch money taken in junior high school and are still bitter about it. You should have a good internal moral compass and be able to talk to people. That being said, having good kung-fu skills and shooting skills are always a plus. Like many before me have said...the pay and benefits suck, you literally wear a target on your chest for 8-12 hours a day, anytime you screw up---everyone knows, and every time you do something awesome--no one ever hears about it. It's a good job, man...just know what you're getting into before you take the plunge. If I had it all over to do again...I'd rather have been a fireman. Everyone loves firemen. lol

    i have to quote reno 911 on this one.

    travis jr. and jim dangle sitting in a room, "whats so great about damn firemen? what do they do all day? they wake up, play with a dog, work out, wash trucks with hot girls, work out again, watch some pornos, and eat a steak dinner. and that's all they do all damn day. i mean come on, what kind of public service is that?"

    Vorpal already opened the door on this by mentioning federal service. Let me follow up by pointing out that there are a ton of Law Enfrocement and LE related jobs out there with varying hours, pay and risk levels. In addition to all the federal LE jobs (FBI, ATF, ICE, Border Patrol, etc.), there's also Corrections, Probation and Parole, Court Officers and more that I can't think of off the top of my head. So, even if you decide being a Street Cop doesn't fit you, there are other options.

    One of my very good female friends did this once and ended up getting shagged in the toilets by one of her hosts.

    It might not happen to everyone, but it's got to be worth a try.

    There's a wide degree of differences in culture between so-called "Street Cop" agencies as well. The style of policing and the public you deal with is very different if you're a sheriff's deputy in Lancaster, versus one in Compton, versus a city cop in Beverly Hills, versus one in Glendale, Santa Monica, etc.

    Low pay? I was under the impression policemen made an okay living. I mean, you're no law firm executive but it isn't min. wage either?

    they ask about his job.
    he says, the days are long, shifts are on crappy hours, and the pay is terrible.
    they say, "thats what you said about walmart, how come life is so good now?"
    he says, "because now, the customer is always WRONG".

    Our chaplan is a rabbi and he is allways there when we need him.
