According to the book description of How to Get Hired in Law Enforcement & Fire, “Is public safety right for you? Before getting into this career field you must consider if the danger involved fits your personality. Do not be offended if you are not meant for the demanding nature of LAW ENFORCEMENT and FIRE, very few are! Public safety is a calling and for some inexplicable reason, ou are either equipped for it or you're not. If you attempt to fake it, because of the fringe benefits (status, women, money), you will find yourself in a world, in which you do not belong! If the title of this book caught your eye, you are probably one of the ELITE. In our lawless society where rules are often ignored, you feel driven to enforce the law.

You have the desire to make things right and do not have the ability to do it! This book may change all of that and help you conquer the challenges of entering PUBLIC SAFETY!”
