As stated by avillan..that is not the case anymore. There was an SF guy retiring after 24yrs who got slobbered all over but even with my actual LE experience in the Coast Guard I have hardly been looked at by 3 departments. One has college requirments as stated above but they will wave half the credits for prior service but you have to get the rest within the first 5yrs on the dept. You can discount on office because they didn't like some things I did in my Acitve duty time....even though it was years ago.
