By far, many of our inquiries are from retiring police officers thinking about entering the field (see retirement article from Chicago). Unfortunately, your experience in law enforcement may not be the most important factor in determining your success in the private sector. We have witnessed police chiefs, federal agents, supervisors with 30yrs of experience last less than 2 years in the business. The main reason for this is unrealistic expectations and lack of business experience. Any new business has a start-up phase which requires significant time and marketing. Some retired officers do not want the invest the time to develop new business or do not have the know how to market to their clients. If you do not put a priority on marketing and developing business... DO NOT GO INTO BUSINESS.
