Stay in school and get the degree, assuming you are in college. If not slow down and finish what you started, but you can start looking at the agency of your choice, ask questions and get involved in ride alongs, internships through your school and physically prepare yourself for the job. Maybe the agency has a Reserve Program, Cadet or Explorer post? Volunteer as a citizen if your time permits and that will put a face with your name that the agency can remember when it gets ready to hire. If positions become available then make application. Good luck...

What he said !!! Welcome to the the site. You can learn lots of good things here ! Be careful out there and don't overstep you limits as a security officer. Ask lots of questions from the officers you come in contact with and observe observe observe !!!!

Something else you can work on is spelling and grammar. A major part of law enforcement is report writing. Many people will read your reports and make judgements about you. Supervisors, fellow officers, District Attorneys, Judges, ect, will all read your reports. A  detailed report with correct spelling and grammar will go a long way and make it look like you are squared away. Good luck in your pursuit of the best career on the planet!

Stay focused on your goal! Education and fitness is a must. Prepare yourself physically and mentally. Stay driven, hungry for knowledge, and have a aggressive mindset.


 


If this is somthing you really want, then go out and get it. It does not come easy, and you have to earn it. the only one holding you back from taking the next step is YOU! Get to it, make moves!!


 


Good Luck
