I want to become a police officer, but just got fired from a job?
I have a strong passion for law enforcement. Im in college studying criminal justice, Im in the army national guard and my MOS is 31b Military Police. I used to work assets protection/ loss prevention at target but I got fired today.. for bad performance. I made a few mistakes, I only had the job for a couple of months. I caught a few people and recovered merchandise, but my boss said that the mistakes that I made had a strong affect on her job performance and potential. She talked to me about them after they happened but never really gave me a formal write up or counseling. She said that I had not improved. So will this have an affect on a potential career in law enforcement. I loved working at target, I was passionate, and many were surprised when I was let go.
