Hello... I am new here on the board and im looking forward to learning a lot... I have been in the Army now 6 years, and have the majority of my training as an Intelligence analyst working closely with Infantry units. I have also worked in special operations units and have a few deployments under my belt. I was really curious to see more or less (i know it usually depends on the dept) how long does it generally take to be promoted from patrol officer to Sergeant. then also from Sergeant to Lieutenant ?????? I am looking into a department and I know that as the experience comes, i would love to earn promotions as i have in the Army and I want to know what to expect. THANKS!!!!!

Army guy..

god bless, army guy. not sure what spec the fbi or other fed agency is looking for, but in the municipal police dept i worked for, it's all civil sevice tests. for promotion to sgt. lt. and capt. above capt is political and appointed. if you go that route (municipal) study hard but use your military training to make you sharp on patrol. your partner will sure feel safe riding w/ you. best of luck to you!
