Lately I have been looking deeper into all options for a successful future. I have wanted to become a police officer for many years; however, now that I am in college, the job market is making my goal extremely difficult. Particularly the statistics of departments in the SE Wisconsin area look bad. The majority of my professors mention how few jobs are open, and how many people apply for these positions.
One of my awesome co-workers mentioned that perhaps joining the Air Force would be a good route. This would have many benefits during the employment, as well as when applying to police departments after my AF contract was over.
I have met with the Air Force recruiter a few times to discuss all of the details, and left with an optimistic outlook. Many people have told me that recruiters will not hesitate to lie, if they think it will get you to sign the contract.
The reason for this thread is to try to get opinions of others who may have recently served for the Air Force. I would really like to know if the Air Force does provide a good, solid life for you, how day to day life is, what training involves, and anything else that may pertain to my quandary.
