    All in all, there are TONS of options available in the criminal justice field available at every level. This is not a complete list either, it's just what I could fit and what was in the top of my head. There's even some career options at the universal level too if you'd consider NATO, international courts, Scotland Yard in England, ect. Yes your bachelors degree will help you depending on what it is in. I think what you should focus on first though is getting that driver's license, required by most of these agencies. It's a requirement to to become an MP in the Army (Military Police). That's the route I'm following, and there are more opportunities in the Military Police Corps than people would think. After working the road a couple of years at an Army post, I have the chance to go CID (Criminal Investigation Division), MPI (Military Police Investigator), SRT (Special Reaction Team, AKA...SWAT), K9 handler (drug dog), PSD (Personal Security Detail), Traffic Management School and so much more!! And we also get those regular Army schools too as well such as Airborne School, Air Assault School, Ranger School, Sniper School, Combatives, ect. Plus all these schools and military training, along with a well rounded baccalaureate degree will prepare you for a job in any local, state or federal law enforcement agancy. The life of an LEO is rigorous and demanding, I hope you have what it takes!

    If you have any additional questions, would like some advice or just a couple of links to helpful websites, feel free to email me in a professional manner!

    With every day pass, our country is getting into more and more trouble. The inflation, unemployment and falling value of dollar are the main concern for our Government but authorities are just sleeping, they don’t want to face the fact. Media is also involve in it, they are force to stop showing the real economic situation to the people. I start getting more concern about my future as well as my family after watching the response of our Government for the people that affected by hurricane Katrina.

    According to recent studies made by World Bank, the coming crisis will be far worse than initially predicted. So if you're already preparing for the crisis (or haven't started yet) make sure you watch this video at http://www.familysurvival.tv and discover the 4 BIG issues you'll have to deal with when the crisis hits, and how to solve them fast (before the disaster strikes your town!) without spending $1,000s on overrated items and useless survival books.

    I knew about all the signs, I was 100% sure a tragedy is coming and I still am after reading this course. What I didn't know was how to get out of it alive. I used to feel helpless, with no military or survival experience whatsoever. What was I supposed to do? Then I found this online https://tr.im/g5qGc you put *HOPE* back on the map for me! It's not just me thanking you, it's my children and their future children! Thanks.
