Any Texas LEO? Looking for some advice.
I'm starting this thread because I'm looking to move to Houston-area, TX in the summer and want to become a LEO. I know how the LEO employment process works here in VT but am somewhat clueless as to how it works in TX. I've looked online for info and have found some but I still have some questions.
Where would you suggest I start with contacting and talking to the LE offices down there?
How long does the hiring process take until I start seeing a paycheck so I know how much I'll need to have before I move down?
What can I do to stand out and what can I do to be best prepared when I get down to TX?
Would going through the police academy be worth doing while I'm in Vermont or would that be a waste of 6k?
Anyone that can help is appreciated! :smile:
