"I would tell any law enforcement professional that is thinking or in the process of retiring that if they are pursuing another career as a security professional to put themselves in the best position possible for their future success through networking and do “your homework” on what you want to pursue.  First join an organization that allows you to network with other security professionals such as ASIS and take advantage of the opportunities that are out there such as this scholarship​"​​
