 My name is Kenneth I'm 22 I am from Tennessee. I am currently in school getting my B.S. in Criminal Justice. I am set to graduate in May of this year. Thankfully!! What brings me here is I was hoping to get guidance on getting my foot in the door and just all around advice as I pursue this career field. I am open to all forms of advice, tips, information etc.  I figure where better to get the guidance then PL.  Thank you in advance.

Welcome to the link my fellow Tennessean! Congrats on the schooling! Now lets bring on the advice... have you got department in mind that you want to work for? You can send yourself through the police academy with a CJ degree, not sure what the TLETA's policy is on students but you can check their website I'm sure. TLETA is in Donelson. There is another academy in East TN, Walter State. They are more for the person putting themselves through. In this day and age, depending on the area you live in, it could benefit you to get certified first. There are still some departments that are hiring people and sending them to the academy but you have better be the best of the bunch cause there are a ton of people putting in for the few jobs that are available. I wish you the best of luck. Keep at it and your dedication and persistance will pay off, nothing happens overnight in this profession.

Thanks everyone!


 


T_9, No I do not have a place in mind just yet I am looking everywhere though. I was told to go where ever will hire me for a few years get the training and then move where I want to be and go from there so I have been kind of running on that advice and looking every where. I really want to focus in the drug and gang area once I get far enough into my career.
