BS degree plus some work experience is a good combo. Congratulations and enjoy your new career. Keep a clean employment history with NV, if you don't it could seriously hurt your chances later on. It sounds like a good experience and a nice change of scenery IMO. Good luck and enjoy.

What he said plus you can still apply for police jobs in CA while you live/work in NV and then just move back when you get an offer here. Congrats on your new career!

I'm assuming it's a department that sends you to an academy when there is an opening in patrol right? That's kinda how Douglas County does things unless your already patrol trained.

Get established, do well, promote to patrol and go from there. You can always lateral over with a NV post cert.

First, congratulations! Is this position in a jail or a state prison. No matter which one it is for, always be alert and develop situational awareness; but especially if it is a prison.

Generally speaking, the inmates in a jail facility are fighting their case (s) and just want it over with so they can either get released or begin their prison time. The very large majority of them do not attack the staff since they know they will pick up another case. Again, I'm saying generally.

State prisoners are sentenced inmates and many are doing some serious time. Some have life, multiple life or 100yrs.+ life sentences. They have nothing to lose. If they injure or kill an officer, they get "juice" for doing so and they really aren't worried about additional time.

I worked Men's Central Jail in L.A., both as a deputy when there were 5500 inmates and as a sgt. many years later when they had 9,000. I often said I wouldn't work as a correctional officer even for $200K a year. I tip my hat to any CO working in a state prison anywhere.

Please be careful wherever you are working.

Even if this a temporary layover in a LE career, you can still learn a LOT and develop attributes beneficial and applicable to working as a sworn LEO out on the streets later on! Best of luck and stay safe!
