    Military and LEO

    I was wondering if there was anything saying I can NOT be active duty military and a reserve police officer. I re-enlisted 6 yrs so i had a nice down payment on my house. I wanted to get out and join the local PD. Can I be a reserve officer and active duty?

    In my ROTC years, I had a detachment captain (Air Force) that was both active and a reserve deputy. That's been a few years, though.

    You probably need to check you up to date Army Regs and them the Police force you want to work with to get the best answer.

    When I was in, there was no restriction that I can remember, but my Army (EOD) duties just wouldn't allow it since I was on almost constant call (alert). Your mileage may vary!

    Check with your command. Ultimately they get to decide if you can have off-duty employment. I'm assuming you are an active duty Military Police or Security Forces--if so, they may not want you employed outside DoD--kinda jacks with the shift schedule--IMHO.

    Check with your command--that's your first stop.

    You can in the Air Force, you just have to get it approved by your commander.

    Check with your PL and PSG, indeed, but don't take their word as law. There is sure to be a policy letter at the Bn (or Co or Bde) level that will outline your rules for outside employment. In most units I've been in, it's been technically OK, though practically impossible...

    Good luck!
    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    When I was Active Duty we had two. A Chief Aviation Metalsmith (AMC) With the Florida Highway Patrol and a 2nd Class Aviation Maintenance Aministrationman. (AZ2) With the Duval County Sheriff's Office. Both became full time LEO's after the completion of their active duty.
