I always keep checking back with the Allen County job postings page online to see if any new jobs have been posted. Recently I applied for a Civilian Security Officer position and a Confinement Officer position for the county. I really am not expecting to hear anything back from them and I’m not going to get my hopes up. That would be really awesome if they would contact me, but I have applied to the county previously for other jobs and they have plenty of applicants applying for these jobs, so the odds aren’t in my favor.
My plan is to apply to different police departments in Indiana when the new year rolls around. Some of the departments have specific requirements to meet before applying. But, most of the time, all that is initially required is a high school diploma and no serious crime convictions. My military and security experience should make my application look better. The more applications I put out, the more likely I will be to get a police officer position.
I will also be looking for any other opportunities for higher security work as well in a more structured atmosphere.
I will always be looking to advance in my career, because there is always a step higher. I really enjoy the law enforcement career path.
