From Military to Police: Are You Ready?

John C. Ricke

you nearing the end of your military service contract/career and considering a new career in law enforcement?

Police Officers and Military Personnel are a special breed of people. For the most part, we have an attraction to action, conflict, and non-simplistic lifestyles where everything can change in a moments notice. We also like working in structured environments where we often form close bonds with our fellow employees.

However, in our worlds, our co-workers are not just “fellow employees” and we don’t have “regular jobs”. Our chosen careers are a huge part of our lives and our co-workers are more like brothers and sisters. Our very lives are often placed in each others hands.
