Hello to all, my name is Dave, I'm 37 years old and hoping to become a LEO.  I am finishing my associates in Crim. Justice now and am hoping to apply with the Indiana State Police soon.  To give a little background, I had always wanted to be a LEO, however, life's circumstances seemed to get in the way and before I knew it, I was in my thirties and still "stuck" in a career where I wasn't at all happy.  That's when, at 35, I decided to get out of doing body work and head back to school before it was too late to fulfill my dream in law enforcement.  It has been difficult trying to go to school, raise two wonderful children as a single father, and attempt to "correct" some of my past mistakes.  I have been waiting until I graduate before attempting the application process as this will give me a better chance of getting hired on and it's given me time to be paying off some old debts (my past mistakes).  I just want to have the best possible chance that I can of getting appointed as I know my age is not necessarily ideal and I'm already too old for certain departments.  However, I truly believe that this is the course that God has called me to pursue in life and I know that He has given me the qualities to make an excellent officer.  I am so excited at the prospect of becoming a trooper, and yet, very nervous about "making the cut."  I'm trying to become involved in anything that I can concerning the law enforcement community, which is why I joined this forum.  I would like to thank you all for your service and let you know that I have nothing but the utmost respect for all of you.  Thank you, as well, for allowing me to join and any advice would be greatly appreciated.  I'm sure I will follow up with many more questions and posts.  Thanks again, and Be Safe, Dave.
