After nearly six years of failed attempts, attempts which resulted in me making the Civil Service Hirings lists only to be passed up and sit there as the lists expired, I finally got the call. As of today, I have been promoted to Deputy.


Haven't been given a date when I'll be shipped out to the Academy but I would imagine it being next January. By then, I will have turned 42 years old. I consider many people on PL to be my friends and enjoy the camaraderie which is why I'm sharing this wonderful news. That and I wanted to let the current and new members know that it's possible to start out later in life and still be able to have a career as a LEO. It just depends on how bad you want it and what you'll do to get there. Stay safe and good luck!!!

Very good news indeed!  Congratulations!  You have much to be proud of!


Aim at the high mark and you will hit it. No, not the first time, not the second time and maybe not the third. But keep on aiming and keep on shooting for only practice will make you perfect. Finally you'll hit the bull's-eye of success.

 Thank you for the well wishes. I will be sworn in next week and then transfer down to Court Staging. After the Academy, I'll be hitting the road getting "Patrol" certified. It's wide open from there on out.

A very sincere and hearty congratulations and well done.  I agree with all our brothers and sisters who have commented here that we are all sure you will be a fine Deputy and patrol officer.  Keep us updated on your time in the academy. I went through in 1968 so it will be interesting to see how the new guyz get learned.   lol.

So very pleased to hear your great news !!!! PLEASE don't listen to Dave ! We are still trying to deprogram him from his evil Dallas Cowgirl ways !!! LOL


At 42 you will be a more mature officer. I like mature officers, they handle situations better  !!!!
