You could apply to be an investigator at either the DAs, the PDs or the AGs-- there are many PI firms who also hire ex cops exclusively

Good stuff. Detectives typically are good at multi-tasking, creating paper trails and building cohesive presentations out of multiple data sources. I've seen detectives do very well as analysts, auditors and inspectors for private and gov functions. Interrogation skills fit well with interviewing and reporting methods for companies seeking assistance with hiring and HR processes. And, most cops are now pretty darned good at using computers - a must have skill in today's job market.

Something else to consider: Get together as many letters of reference as you can from your chain of command before you leave. Don't let them just write about what a good and trusted cop you were. Literally hand them a list of work habits and skill sets you want documented. Don't be shy. And, get diverse input. You obviously want a good letter from your Commander/Chief, but also get letters from people like the head of Personnel, Finance, etc. Get people from allied agencies to write letters for you too.

Hey OP: I'm sort of in the same boat; other than the girlfriend situation. I stumbled onto this link today. It looks like Henderson is hiring for their jail. Minimum hourly works out to 54k and change to start. Better hop on it quick if you are interested though. They are cutting it off after the first 750 applications. Unfortunately I'll still be in one of the "Stan" countries for the testing January 14-17.

Jobs in general are really hard to get here, and most dont pay very much as the economy really sucks here and employers can get away with paying next to nothing, and being a right to work state they fire at will.I definitely wouldn't move here unless you had something lined up.

Those are two completely unrelated concepts that are incorrectly used on a daily basis, I think, all over City-Data. Yes, Nevada is both.
