That won't make up for the living expenses, IMO.

No. But salaries and retirement are pretty good. And where you might not have much OT available to you today, you will here. If you like the ocean, it's right there. Wanna ski? Four hours away. No denying there are plenty of opportunities and no denying it costs a lot to live here.

As with anything, there are a lot of factors you need to consider before accepting any job.

Need some more details. Out of state laterals have to do the full academy right? Do they have to start at bottom pay? Grew up in the area and wouldn't mind coming back, actually came and looked a couple years back but nothing was moving at that time.

Here is a link with all the details: http://www.cityofsantacruz.com/index.aspx?page=1538

But, here are some highlights:

1) LATERAL: Requires possession of a current POST basic law enforcement certificate issued by the state of California.

2) HIRING BONUS: New Lateral Police Officer will receive $20,000 - 1/3 upon successful completion of the Field Training Officer (FTO) program, 1/3 upon successful completion of probation, and 1/3 on the second anniversary of the hiring date (one year after the completion of probation). For the purposes of this hiring incentive, new Lateral Police Officers are defined as Police Officers currently employed by a California law enforcement agency who have successfully completed a probationary period of at least twelve (12) months.

You might check the Ventura County Sheriff's Office. Wife's cousin just graduated from their academy. He said they were still filling positions.

A ton of movies, TV shows, music videos, and commercials have been filmed in the area I cover. Even though Star Wars was not on this list, I actually wasn't that surprised when I went by a popular hiking trail parking area and saw this:



They were a group of Star Wars enthusiasts trying out their home made and very well constructed costumes.

That is pretty awesome! They filmed buck wild in my city for a few weeks. But we wouldn't play along and everyone wanted them out... So that's what happened!

Otherwise nothing cool one of the guys I work with said we need someone to do a country music video here. He'd chase Miranda around in a cop car lol

Douchebag

So I just saw that someone on 3/4/13 at approximately 2105 hours used my quote here to give me a negative rep. The user didn't put who he/she was, but left this nice little message:

"Facts are facts, cops are power tripping douchebags that love to trample on citizens rights."

I could probably try and guess who did it, but why waste my time on it right? So I'm a douchebag because of my job. This coming from a TW user that has never met me or knows how I do my job. Oh, and he/she wants to remain anonymous... who's really the douchebag here?

I'm not trying to get a lynch mob going to ban this guy or anything.. just wanted to share with you guys. I guess that's the beauty of TW right? we've got people from all types of beliefs and/or different levels of bigotry/ignorance.

That person has had his posting ability in the LE section revoked since that rep post

Unfortunately, even here, we have the occasional small handful of members who are very much anti-leo

Typically it ends poorly for them, like in the cases of sunflower and ruler, however after being told to knock it off, occasionally some decide to behave
