So currently I am in the Army, with about a year an a half left in my contract. I'm trying to decide if I want to get out and become a LEO or stay in... I love the Army don't get me wrong, just some recent events have started to sway my mind...
I have a completely clean record, not even a parking ticket.
I want to get out and become some time of federal LEO, ie. FBI, CIA, Secret Service, Marshal, that kinda thing.. Looking into those a little deeper and I discovered that I need a Bachelors degree for most of them, and well I only have my Associates.
So what I've been thinking about is getting out and joining the sheriff's dept. back home, but I'm more leaning towards OSP (Oregon State Police.) From what I've read, OSP is really military friendly and allows you to go to college for the first year or so on the force to do some college. Which that would help me complete my bachelors.
What I am thinking is that I will join OSP, and then after a few years under my belt, drop an application for one of the fed jobs.
That's what I have in mind right now, just wondering if any of you have any advice to put in on it. If its the right path to take for what I wanna do, or just anything you have to say would be greatly appriciated.
Thanks for your time.
