Do you have what it takes?

  Let’s face it, we’ve all had our moments running around playing cops and robbers with the neighborhood locals as a kid but, if you really want to put down the plastic gun and pick up an official badge, you might want to be prepared for what you’re going to encounter.
First things first, in order to even qualify for a law enforcement degree you need a clean criminal record; you might also want to consider putting all your future appointments on hold because you’re going to be training for about five years and three months. During this time period you’ll learn how to apprehend different suspects, contribute to high speed chases, and learn different techniques with different weapons. It’s mandatory to take physical, mental, and writing evaluations.
 Another thing to keep in mind is that it’s very unlikely that you will get the patrol car of your dreams. In fact once you graduate, the patrol unit will assign you a regular black and white, while investigators and narcotic units have unmarked cars. New products are being developed to make your future job easier. For instance the e7 concept, (shown above) is the next generation of law enforcement. This car has the ability to follow voice commands so you won’t have to fiddle with thousands of buttons by your side. The car is also capable of providing a live HD video stream in infer-red and night vision. Another feature is its ability to automatically scan up to two hundred license plates of cars while driving
 Now it might seem like every good reason for becoming a member of your local law enforcement community is overshadowed by a lot of work but any obstacle can be avoided with a lot of hard work and dedication, So remember these useful tips when approaching your new career and always keep moving forward.
