Recently I have become very interested in working as a Probation Officer. I am wondering, combined with my past experiences, would work as a P.O. help as sort of a "stepping stone" for future law enforcement careers? i.e. Capitol Police, FBI, CIA security forces, other Homeland Security Agencies, etc. OR should I think more along the lines of a patrol officer first? I just really enjoy the idea of PO.
