BTW, if you "have what it takes..." some other major consideration.
Are you up to the task of never ending shift work? At your age, you might be used to a grove. Shift work can suck the life out of you and destroy a family.
Are you ready to be the old guy being told what to do by young guys? Your Sergeant could be in his 20's.
Are you ready to lose a lot of friends and have your social life change?
Is your family up to the task?
If you are religious, are you ready for the foulness of the job....and your co workers. You may never fit in. Cops are pretty crude people.
Can you drop a tactical F bomb on someone?
In the world to come, each of us will be called to account for all the good things G-d put on earth which we refused to enjoy. ~ The Babylonian Talmud
Whenever you get mad as hell about it all, grab your rifle and head outside. If you are the only one there...it's not time yet
"Few men desire liberty; most men wish only for a just master." - Sallust
