Should I become a police officer?

Should I become a police officer? I live in a city of ~100,000 and the local department is looking for recruits and their training cycle is only 16 weeks. I want to join and become an upstanding officer to get rid of the bad image that the police has been getting these days. I believe that there are situations that could be resolved if proper training and communication was had, like pic related (and countless others), and that I would be able to stop other officers from improper use of force or other bad policing practices.

      Not far off. My last application with a sheriffs department made me log into my social media on my phone then hand my phone over to them to look through. Luckily I haven’t posted on garden gnomebook since 2010.

    Not gay OP. I'm going to apply to my local PD but, I smoked weed within the 3 years and did coke, I believe, within the 7 year window. I'm not that person anymore but, I know it will gravely affect my chances. Should I bring it up? The paragraph seems to the big boogeyman but im confident that I am a completely different person.

        No shit if you're doing man work somewhere outside of an office there are occupational risks. If you're really PrepHole, the idea of getting into a gun battle with some roody poo should be a perk.

                If you are OP, I think you have a terrible temperament to be a police officer. You are far to prone to anger, you actually seem somewhat unhinged. You wouldn't deal with the job stress well at all. Become an electrician, you'll make more money. You'll be less stressed and most importantly no one's life will be in your hands.

    Make sure to wear that plastic body armor at all times, and when pulling someone over always have your gun drawn just incase they start shooting at you through their back window, and always have your left hand on your radio, if they allow it I would have an extended magazine on your carry gun

    You're way too idealistic and naive.

    >forced overtime
    >chronic and critical understaffing leading to unsafe situations, or being overworked
    >inability to separate work from home due to stress, trauma, and being 'on-call'
    >relationship issues, you may feel partner doesn't understand you, can't be there for kids
    >issues with management, could be micromanaging, too much paperwork, overbearing managers despite lack of support
    >being scapegoated by brass for fuckups or vindictive brass who go after officers
    >politics
    >constantly dealing with the worst of humans and accidents changing how you see others
    >being injured

    granted this isn't applicable to all PDs but talking to police officers it seems like this isn't all that uncommon either. there are also positives to being a police officer but they all mentioned the bad stuff to me first

    if you can deal with all that shit then maybe you can then make changes for the better
