85: Then and Now: Starting Over As a Cop

85: Then and Now: Starting Over As a Cop

Starting over as a cop can be challenging, but for many officers, it’s a great way to grow both professionally and personally. 

After retiring with over 20 years of law enforcement experience, Chris and Shaun discuss their decisions to relocate from the Chicago area and to continue their police careers in the southeastern United States.  

Chris details his second run at field training and how he now approaches the process as an accomplished “rookie.” 

As a recent police applicant, Shaun discusses the many current differences in the police officer recruiting and screening process versus those practiced in the late 90’s.

Whether you’re on the job and considering an agency switch or are just interested in knowing how officers deal with such a significant change, this show is a great listen.
