    Hello from North Dakota/Northern Minnesota!

    First of all, i'd like to thank everyone for all the advice i have read in the past, i have the up most respect for all LEOs!

    So here is who i am...

    I am currently a sophomore at the University of North Dakota currently majoring in Sociology and minoring in Chemical Dependcy and Criminal Justice. I am originally from a small town outside the Minneapolis/St.Paul metro area. After i graduate from UND i plan to go to Northland Tech in Thief River falls to get my skills certification.

    I do have some volunteering and work experience that i think will help me with my career pursuit:

    -4 years as a police explorer
    -currently a Resident Assistant (RA) at UND
    -I will be participating in a summer internship for my local department this summer


    Once again, i thank you all in advance!

    Welcome - Good luck, MN can be a hard state to find a job sometimes. Keep at it!

    I'm up in Grand Forks fairly often. If you can't get a job in MN look to ND. Lot's of jobs here. Especially in the oil area. I'm originally from St. Cloud but left to work in ND when I couldn't get a job in MN.
