About a year ago I finally decided I was going to go for it! I've been thinking of becoming a cop for a while. I had no high school diploma, no GED, and no college. For the past 6 months I've been taking some GED classes and I have now passed 4 out of the five test and I'm doing pretty good on my scores. So what I've been thinking of doing is after I pass my last test is to apply for the sheriffs department here in Texas where I live. They said at first ill have to work as a jailer for about a year and then I can apply for them to send me to the Academey. Does this sound like a good plan? I keep hearing it can take like 3 years for people to get on somewhere but once that year is up I could be a deputy and doing pretty much what a cop does. Anywho I'm pretty excited because I feel like I'm getting closer to what I want to do with my life. Just wondering if the route I'm going is good or not? Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
