As the saying goes, you know you're a cop when you don't know how not to be one. I'm exploring the options as far as moving to another state and becoming a cop there. My wife would like to return to PA simply to be closer to family. I have some reservations...namely because I have an immune disorder which was diagnosed after I started at my current dept. For specifics if you'd like, look up common variable immunodeficiency disorder. I'm thinking that would scare other agencies away from hiring me if I tried to lateral. It's well managed with medication (very expensive meds), but I'm not sure I would even get past the application stage because of it. I'd like to gauge whether I'm wasting my time in applying and my current dept is the only shot I have at being a cop or if there's a good chance things would work out. I know that all things being equal, a pd will take the guy without the medical condition. But otherwise, what do you guys think? Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
