If you’re at all unsure about what to do when you graduate high school, or you have aspirations to become part of law enforcement someday, military jobs can help prepare you for it. Law enforcement careers are good reasons to join the military, namely:
1. Police force
These branches of law enforcement are much easier to break into if you have a military background. Not only are you uniquely prepared to serve in these departments, but you’re looked at more seriously than other applicants.
You’ve already shown that you have what it takes to be the best of the best, and you’ve served your country. That makes you an excellent candidate to join your local police department, or join federal law enforcement. You can become part of the Federal Bureau of Investigations, the Central Intelligence Agency or the department of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms. These agencies handle serious crimes, foreign and domestic threats, and work to keep America drug- and crime-free.
If you’ve served your country in military jobs, then you’re especially suited to transition to these types of jobs and the people looking at your history and application know that you have skills and experience that non-military personnel will not have.
