Veterans and Police Departemnt?
One enduring question I've been wanting to ask.
Would a veteran with PTSD (honorable discharged with all valid paperwork) have a chance to serve his community without being rejected after the interviewing processes for the Police Academy?
Rumors have been going around from various sources about such information. I really want to make this clear before making a decision whether should I give it a try for my hometown's city or keep on trying to go to graduate school for another 5 years (Note: I'm somewhat worn out from trying to keep my GPA above 3.6 for the past 4 years-about to graduate with a Bachelor. Reaching the age of 28, with a mentality of preferring hands-on work/job, I don't see myself being a college student for 5 more years, regardless of having great sources of reccomendation letters/records)
Serious answers only because I don't want to waste your time, nor the interviewing board of the PD from going through everything and just rejecting me as a candidate. Of course, I'd love to do SWAT if possible, since the career as an Army Infantryman with a goal of being a Rangers didn't work out after the rocket blast.
I appreciate the input, tips, hints.
