It all varies on what you prefer and what different types of law enforcement you enjoy. If you want to just patrol and such I recommend FSP or SCSO to start off. If you enjoy the correctional genre ofc DOC is something you’d want to look into however it can get really slow so I’ve heard. If you just recently got certified I believe you’re not eligible anyways for FBI.
Well that’s the issue, I have previously been in FSP & SCSO, however, for SCSO I left and FSP I failed final. But, I got blacklisted from FSP because I reapplied and I may or may not’ve used a leaked POST guide (plz don’t take my post cert I worked my ass off for it)
RIP, I’d recommend just trying to get back into SCSO or going to DOC. I mean you could apply anywhere but having a blacklist from FSP is going to lessen your chances of getting into any of those really selective agencies such as FNG, DHS, or FBI.
As all of these comments are most likely going to say the same thing, it truly does depend on your type of policing. If you’re into field operations, tactical operations, and protecting government officials and such, go DHS. If you enjoy just investigations, try FBI again.
As an FSP Admissions Officer, I am not sure on your blacklist. I looked into it and it looks like it’s temporary, for 6 months. So, I’d go for an appeal on that if you’d like.
However, the main difference between SCSO and FSP is most likely the type of operations they do. The State Patrol is mainly focused on traffic operations and perhaps responding to a few calls. SCSO is mainly responding to calls and is mainly more action-packed whereas the State Patrol is more laid back.
