A friend of mine has me interested in pursuing a peace officer license. He said that there are dozens of jobs that require a peace officer certification but do not require a degree. I was wondering specifically what jobs could you get and what organizations would hire a licensed peace officer?
I am a NYS Certified 'peace officer'. If i want to work a job as a security guard, do i need to get the security guard certification also, or does my peace officer status cover that? I would assume that since peace office is a higher level of training and arrest / summons writing power that it would cover it.
The father of my child is using drugs heavily. His current girlfriend even tells me what he does. She also says that even though I have a restraing order against him (for Domestic Violence), he can still become a Peace Officer or a Correctional Officer for the State of California. Correctional Officers are the ones that guard the inmates in State Prisons.
When im 18 i want to get a tattoo contributing as a RIP for my mother..but i also want to land a decent job. I was wondering if u can become a peace officer(prison Guard) or a Policemen with a tattoo?
I was reading on a job app. for a police officer that you could not have smoked marijuana for the past 2 years and no "hard" drugs for the past 7 years. is this typical for all peace officer positions?
I talked to my County Investigator today and he told me I can be a cop with only my Bachelors' and passing the State Peace Officer Examination.
If I do not have a Bachelor's then I NEED to go thru training.
Is this true?
I google this, but all the results are using "Peace officer" and "Police officer" synonymously. Needless to say, this is incorrect. I want to know how to become a certified Peace Officer in the State of Georgia. Where do I go to begin the process? How long will it take? How much will it cost me? Do I have to be a certain age? If so, what age do I have to be? What are the requirements for it?
I'm looking for ideas. I need to conduct an interview with a peace officer regarding the ethical approach he takes to his job. If you are a police or are familiar with their job, please inform me of the ethical dilemmas and solutions police face or encounter.
I went to a trade school for Criminal Justice and i do not wish to follow up with becoming a peace officer. I would like to get into the security part of it. For all the armed security jobs you need some type of security license and i know there are many different types of guard licenses. I was just wondering where i needed to go to get any of the licenses i need. Thanks for any help.
Im a 25 year old Asian male, a junior at a So Cali University. My goal in life is to become a police officer, but I came across a huge barrier. I have a huge fear of smashed up, mangled bodies. I neglected to realize that on the job, you will have calls to homes with rotting bodies, homicides, and suicides, and such. And also, part of the police academy is to take a tour of a coroners office, and watch an autopsy. I usually look away but I realized that on the job, you just cannot. Is there any way for someone to overcome this fear? My goals, hopes, and dreams in life was to become a peace officer, and because of this I feel as if my life just stopped. And I cant move foward. Im so depressed right now.

I was 19 years old when i was charged with minor consumption (underage drinking) and fleeing a peace officer by means other than a motor vehicle (i ran). Since then i've bee denied to a couple jobs due to my criminal background and im curious as to if this ever leaves my record.
Additional Info: This happened 4 months ago.
I also have one more minor consumption on my record with no other charges attached.
I got my guard card first, by a retired lapd officer, he told the class that if we wanted to ever advance in security to take the pc832 course, which classifies you as a peace officer, i now have both, ive also taken emergency response courses with fema, i have inmate transport in mind, but i was wondering if anybody had some experience in this area and could give me some ideas.
Im interested in becoming either a Parole Officer, or a Probation officer, the jobs seem similar enough, but I was wondering which one paid better, and which required a university degree. I am a student from Canada, and it is more than likely different than other countries. Any other info would be great! Thanks!
I see most Security Guard jobs in New York State require a license or certification to be a security guard, what would I do to go about getting this? Also how would I be certified to be a peace officer in New York State? I recently applied to a Humane Officer job at the ASPCA and it said it preferred current peace officer status.
Which do I attend the community academy, or the peace officer academy? How much do they cost? Or do I receive benefits like with the CHP academy? Do I have to sign up to take the tests or do I just show up? What happens after the test?
Can someone sum up the entire process to me? From application to the date I'm an official trainee? And what does that mean? I'm 21, clean record, good health, but I have bills to pay.
I am a certified Peace Officer and EMT. I am wondering about qualifications, shifts they work, type of work (gate, k9, ID checking), pay, issued firearms and gear, quality of the job...Anything that anyone knows would be greatly appreciated!
My husband is interested to be a police officer in Oklahoma. He has read several of the smaller PD's require or prefer CLEET certification. When I go to the Cleet Certification website, it doesn't really tell how to get CLEET Certified. It just has Info about continuing education for either peace officers or security guards. Does anyone know how this works? Also does anyone know what it costs? There is nothing about cost on the website either.
What does the Posse Comitatus Act mean for an Army Reserve soldier who has orders within 30 days and who also works as a Peace Officer in the civilian world? Is he able to work as a Peace Officer legally if he is on orders with the Army?
I just finished watching the 12 o'clock news and once again they reported that the city is in need of over 800 more police officers. Yet many possible candiates are being turned away because they dont have a 2 year degree, or any military expierence. One man had a basic peace officer certification yet he was turned down because he did not a 2 year degree. And these people are finding jobs as police officers in other counties. Should the police department, if they need that many men start lowering their standards.
