Default LAPD

Im trying to decide if i should go into law enforcement or not. I find the LAPD a really exciting job and is what im leaning towards. Im just looking for more input. If anyone is a cop or has family, friends, etc who are cops (doesn't matter for what state, branch,etc) and have something to say, please do so. i'm looking for opinions and the way you guys view this job.

Well, LAPD is hiring so go for it. Just remember that it's LA, not a very friendly city.

Start your application now. Processing takes up to 6 months.

My friend applied to be a Sheriff's and they denied him because he was too young. The age requirement is 21 and he is 21. Hmm..

This will put me up higher on the pay scale when i do join the force. I live in L.A. and have seen the LAPD in action first hand thats why i want to join I want to do patrol for sure and be first responder on calls. I know this specific department is not the best nor has the easiest areas to patrol but in my eyes a very respected department because of these very reasons. Now i just have to actually decide if this is what i really want to do

Try to get a degree in something other than criminal justice. You're pretty much limited with a CJ degree. They want to see degrees from various studies; psych, sociology... etc.

Good luck!

being a cop is being apart of a family, like every law enforcement agency.
People hate you more than fire fighters, only difference is fire fighters don't get shot at

I would never want to be a cop unless it was LAPD.

I thought about moving to Cali just to do it a few times but just couldn't afford the move.

^ he wants the action!

btw i talked to a sheriff one time and he said they get paid less than a regular cop, have more responsiblities, AND the shittiest part is that you have to work in the jail system for like 8 years or something before they let you patrol.

oh man, if you are going to school for couple of year for degree, might as well pick a major that pays out much better.

no offense but it's pretty much a high risk job and it doesn't pay well enough if you ask me.(but again, there's the justice side of the job i guess)

My friend Brad was LAPD and patrolled West LA, pimpin on honeys was his daily routine while chillin at Starbucks. Now he got transfered to Watts and getting into shuffles with knuckle heads on a daily basis.

Hope and pray that you get located to a good area. Otherwise, you'd better work out and take self defense classes and get prepared to fight for your life.

Once he actually got his own gun yanked out by a 2nd guy while he was wrestling the main perp (my friend Brad is pretty yoked and was even in a Nike commercial back in high school but was still having a hard time with this 250 lb guy) but luckily he talked the 2nd guy down to putting the gun back. He actually said, "Think of what your momma would say right now." LOL.

Cause I have no desire to be a cop, I just don't like cops and I wouldn't want to be one of them in a small town or suburb.

NYPD would be fun but they have the worst pay that's why I wouldn't do it.

LAPD would be exciting and the starting pay is decent. I wouldn't want to be a cop somewhere I would be bored. I just think being a cop in LA would be fun, maybe Miami too.
