Why would you want to be a cop? There is to much corruption in that field.

I meant "you" in the generic sense, as in none of us can. I think what you're counting on is him keeping his nose clean, and that's fantastic. I have the same high expectation for my LO when he's released. What we can't control is the slippery slope that is parole. A simple error could land him back with a PV. Recidivism rates are high and don't reflect how many people are back on a serious vs. procedural PV. I heard once, "With some degree of certainty, you can guarantee that you will never commit a crime. But you can't say with any certainty that you will never be accused of one." And that is very much the position our husbands are in. They are felons and that, by default, moves them up the list of suspects. Being in the wrong place at the wrong time does happen and with a felony under your (generic) belt, that can mean trouble.

I hope that you pursue your career goals with realistic expectations and perhaps attend a hiring event, even in another town/jurisdiction. Ask questions, lots of them. Get a feel for the culture and decide if it's right for you. Personally, I think there are good LEO and bad LEO just like all agencies. Knowing what I know from the criminal side would make it very difficult for me to work in a department allowing bad LEO to exist because a snide and unnecessary comment about anyone in custody is a comment about my husband, or yours. I wouldn't last long for that reason.

I don't know where you live but generally you must pass a psych exam, and by that I mean a 3-4 hour question and answer exam by a licensed psychiatrist. That's after going thru all the schooling. Anyone can get into the police academy not everyone who completes it can get a job. You might but I wouldn't count on it.

He did a home visit Wednesday I was let go by Friday. My job gave no real reason on record. But one the investigators told me his parole officer felt it was a conflict of interest. Best bet is to contact the Human Resource department to confirm what the policy is off record of course. Good luck. I have several degrees in Criminal Justice but the issue becomes a problem when they do the back ground
Investigations.
I Am Being Positive ! Thank You For Your Information , Hopefully Everything Is Going Good For You , But Sorry To Hear You Lost Your Job .

We are At-will employees at the discretion of the District Attorney so they would never say that was the real reason. But a inside source told me it was because my husband Parole agent called. They really don't have to give a reason when your at-will just told me my appointment had ended.
