Ok so some of you may know that I want to be a LEO and in September I took the test for the state police and missed it by 1 point so I have to wait till next year to take it again. But in the mean time I have been looking at my options and I have the option of paying 3,200 and going to the County or community college police academes which would almost guarantee me, a job after graduation since most of the smaller police depts around me are hiring and they really cannot afford to pay to train their officers and it also as one officer told me it shows that you have dedication to the job. Now the hard part is that since I am currently employed as an appliance mover and it squat I really cant afford to pay for the academy but, I could afford to take the classes to become an armed guard and work that for about a year or 2 and being a armed guard pays well and save up the money. Then try to move over to becoming a LEO. Mind you I dont want to wait too long to try to be a leo as I am 23 and im not getting any younger.
