yep.  I got my badge/uniform/gun today along with what looks like an outline of a criminal law class in a three ring binder.  Just like that, I'm a cop.  It's a hell of a summer job.  How much weight does everyone think this will carry on a resume?

That's the strange thing... I told them that I'd be leaving for law school in Aug. and they didnt seem to care and hired me anyway.  I guess its because they're so shorthanded.

I don't know where you live, but it is a hell of a lot harder to be a cop in NJ.

You have to take lots of tests, have your background checked out, and then you go on lists to be hired.

They certainly don't hand guns out here like candy bars.

To be a cop here in FLA where I live takes at least 6-8 weeks of background, testing etc as well....where do you live?!

I live in Louisiana, but I have 4 yrs military, and a BS, I have several friends that a cops, and a federal secret security clearance, so I'm sure that made it easier.

And I suppose it dont hurt that the HR guy is a former marine like myself

I did the normal background check that took a week, did the psyc. eval to check if I'm a looney bin and the standard urnie screen, and that was that.

As far as the handing out guns like candy bars, I'm a three time pistol expert in the marines and a certified marksmanship instructor, so I'm a minimal liability with a firearm.

For anyone that cares, I requested to work in the Courthouse, and now I'm a bailiff, so I get to pick the brains of the attys, the 5 state judges we have, and their clerks. 
I love it.  I couldnt ask for a better 0L job!

And as an added bonus, 3 of the 5 judges went to the law school that I will be attending...
