Nah, 11 years, and currently in North Carolina. Lets see:
1 year, Town PD in North Carolina
5 1/2 years, County PD in Virginia
1 1/2 years, University PD in Virginia
2 years, City PD in Virginia
1 year, Probation Officer in North Carolina (current position)
Town PD Reserve Officer in Virginia
Company Police Department Part-Time Officer in North Carolina
After a year in Probation in NC, I'm thinking I might try to get back into police work full-time. The Company PD I work for part-time is helping me get my certification back in NC. That should be done by the end of this year, then I am free to look for a full-time LE job in NC again.
Probation is an interesting animal. I wear a full duty belt (complete with state issued M&P40), I have powers of arrest and statewide jurisdiction, and everyone I deal with is a convicted criminal. Still, by state standards I am not a certified law enforcement officer. I have a certification issued by the same agency that certifies police officers in NC, but it is a different certification that only qualifies me to work for Probation and Parole. It would make a lot more sense to just send all probation/parole officers to BLET and get them law enforcement certified since we have full law enforcement authority by statute, but I guess that would make too much sense. Luckily I found another way (thank you Company Police!).
