EMTs, Paramedics, Firefighters, Police Officers
 
How many jeepers do we have working in public service? What city, county, of town do you work in and how long have you been doing it?

I am a paramedic for Northstar EMS in Searcy AR. I have been there for 5 years and before that I worked for a Fire Department in Sherwood AR and prior to that I worked for a basic ambulance service in Quitman AR. I have been in this business for 8 years now and still love it (most days). I also work part time for the police department in the town where I live, Bald Knob. I have been doing that for a little over 3 years now.

Start by going to your local PD and doing some ride alongs. Tell them you are interested in becoming an officer. That will allow you to get you feet wet. That is just to see if its something you really want to do, because there is a lot of stuff involved with becoming an officer just to to find out it's not for you. Other than that its just like applying for any other job. Good luck.

Scan local newspapers for job listings. Sometimes you can go down to city hall or govnt building and fill a position of interest form. Basically they will contact you when that hiring process opens up. (dont depend 100% on that to inform you). Or just ask the cops ya see!

BigGreen98 07-16-2011 10:55 PM

Thank guys that's alot of help! Will do.

Supercop260 07-16-2011 11:33 PM
