    Removed because several people here are smarter than me and suggested that I take down my original post...

    Honestly, I would change it back. I would not want a background investigator to think I was being presumptuous, or worse, representing myself as something that I'm not.

    Understood. I don't want to give that impression either. I will change it to something else. Thank you very much for the advice. That would have been a silly thing to get me DQd from the selection process.

    OMG. It's the militarization of the police!

    Nothing wrong with your previous avatar. I can imagine you're excited about the future, but don't get too drawn into that life. Continue to be yourself.

    Thanks so much for the encouragement. I will take it to heart. I already promised myself as well as the family and fiance that I will still be me, even if this LEO career works out for me. I will not change for anybody.

    That is just the picture I changed it to for the time being from what it was this morning. Since my EDC is a new Glock 17, I thought it would make a fitting avatar. :supergrin:

    At least you should give me props for carrying a full sized gun day in and day out instead of a tiny pocket pistol. I even back it up with a spare mag and BUG. :tongueout:

    I had stupidly put on a picture put up a picture of the uniform patch of the current agency that I am testing for. Until somebody pointed out that might be a had idea, and he was right. :whistling:

    Yeah, that would be a bad idea. Heck, it's a bad idea even if you are with the agency unless you are one of the beloved bulletproof children and even then the politics can get you if someone wants to come after you bad enough. Trust me, I know.

    I removed my OP and changed the picture. Thanks very much for the input. This is why I come to you guys for advice, because you are all much wiser then myself.

    Yeah don't jinx yourself. I wouldn't put up anything related to PSP until you graduate the academy.

    You kidding? Don't put it up until after hire, probation, permanency, promotion, etc. Heck, put it up when you retire. That way they can't do anything to you anymore.

    I don't know how your agency will be concerning posting stuff. I don't usually post an actual patch, but I may post something similar to what I have in for my avatar currently, as an example. As you mature with the agency you ultimately get hired on with, you will have more of an idea about what is considered safe to post. And, Lawman is right: with agency/department politics if someone comes gunning at you it doesn't matter who you really are.

    Hey, if you need to throw off the bloodhounds by posting an agency patch from L.A. County :whistling:, or even an European agency, I've got plenty of patches I can photograph and send you.

    I think I have one of their T-shirts too, and will send you one if you like. I **think** the only size I have is XL (European sized XL). I need to check my inventory. I'm sure it's too large for your size 32 waist, but for me and my smooth, hard muscled, Greek god like body, it barely fits.

    I'll take it. Euro XL is smaller than our L. I wear XL in some import clothing brands and it can be tight on me, imagine that. Btw, it's a 31" waist again now that I lost 5 pounds!
