lol...i can give you pointers for the police exam, but not sheriff. i'm sure btown can weigh in, tho.

btw, why lasd and not lapd?

its because i like the spiffy khaki uniform......i really dont know why i chose lasd over lapd...maybe because it was the first one that came to mind

lol. for sfpd, they asked you a series of questions that looked at how your thought process worked, how you react to changing situations w/in each scenario, and some other stuff (that i can't remember). someone told me to always temper your answer w/how it affects the community.

of course, that's for sfpd, which has significantly more public interaction than sfsd. ymmv, however.
