Hi, I've come to this forum today to ask everyone a question and to some what point me in a direction. My dream is to have a career in law enforcement, most ideal position is with a sheriff's office. I really like the idea of patrolling with the sheriff's office and dealing with the general public. I also want to join the Air Force and go into the security forces as a jump start on my law enforcement career. I'm torn between the two and not sure what to do, on one hand I have my desire to do civil law enforcement and on the other I have military training and a small jump on my career path.

Any comments will be helpful, I'm just looking for some opinions from former security forces and LEO's. Thank you for taking the time to read my post.
