I am going to college to get a double major in criminal justice and sociology so I can become an F.B.I agent.


The path I have chosen will be a long and hard one.

Hey to be, post an Intro first, otherwise the older LEO's will jump on you. Read the Terms of Use. On your want to be an MA in the Navy, don't you have to be in first to become an MA? When I recruited for the AF that was the way it was with the Navy. AF you can be in Security Forces (SP) right off the bat.


I am going to be retiring next year from the AF and get into LE, hopefully with the Utah Highway Patrol....

 Sounds like you already have a foot in the door as a security officer, hang in there and keep studying.

Good luck to you, my father retired as an MP from the Air Force and wanted nothing to do with law enforcement after that. He said that civilian and martial law were way too different from one another, and didn't want to relearn it all over again.

Originally I wanted to do it for crime scene, and not because of CSI, I jsut want to say that right now. I still want to do it, but its not my main drive. I think being SWAT or a mounted officer or a k-9 unit would be a blast.


I'd love to have a battle of wits with you, but you appear unarmed.

The absolute first thing I would recommend for anyone contemplating being an LEO is to get a really exhaustive physical exam covering you from head to toe. I've seen enough youngsters who've dreamed of being an LEO, taking all the courses and doing all the right things to realize their dream only to have it dashed because they couldn't pass the physical. It'll save you from a lot of dissapointment and the resultant heartbreak.


Once you're on, look for a path that'll give you the opportunity to do a lot of different things and get varied training (and where you get to blow up things,,, AND get paid for doing it).  That's the best. While on LASD I was fortunate enough to be a member of their Special Enforcement Bureau. I was able to do a lot of really cool stuff and had a great time while it lasted.

I have been trying to get hired on a department since returning from Iraq in 2005. I have worked on getting degrees; I have an AA in business, a BS in criminal justice, and am currently working on my MS in criminal justice. I have applied over 20 times, made it background twice, the other times I did not pass either a written test or the interview. I am in the National Guard, have been for over five years and have a total of over 11 years military experience and I have an interim secret security clearance. I am also 37. I am looking to start a new career not just get a new job. I want to do something that gives me a sense that I am making a difference, not just ho-hum work that is dependent on either the economy or technology.

I very much admire U.S Marshals.  I've already completed a BA in Criminal Justice and an internship with NCIS, but I think I'll go to a police department for a bit.

At the moment I am working towards my AAOT at the community college, then on to Portland State for my Bachelors in Sociology and Criminal Justice.  I eventually want to work with juveniles, but we will see what happens.
