FWIW, I spent 10 years as a RO. Six as a level II (That's because my dept moves real slow in promoting) and four as non-designated level 1. I worked solo once I promoted. I enjoyed it for sure, though there were times it was tough.

I would say look at large departments, more opportunities for advancement, special assignments and probably better training. Get as much training as possible and learn from seasoned veterans. During training ask lots of questions, know the penal and vehicle code well, plus any local codes.

Lastly, and most important. always be aware of your surroundings and know where you are at all times! Your life, your fellow officers lives and the public depend on it, I can't stress this enough. Good luck!
