I know when I got out of the military and into police work, I had so little money it was scary. Thankfully my Reserve unit put me on orders with my old unit until I was picked up by my agency. This same scenario repeats itself over and over, and I know a few hundred cops in my department who now wear the blue uniform after wearing green first. Daniel Defense has implemented a program to make your first (or fifth) duty rifle a little easier if you are a cop. Sure there are terms, conditions and interest, but no matter how you are looking at things you are still borrowing money.
Just a tip from Gearscout’s Stickman. He has a few more words for aspiring LEOs.
