Not to start an argument. different laws for different states, and city versus County versus State. Some county regs allow a PT to transit to regular/FT While a city will require 21 same thing goes for State. Or Rookie age can be lower for different departments. It works both ways. in my neck of the woods, its 21 across the board. also a degree of some relating sort. Indiana is scared of being out talked by a redneck. ROFL. Still condolences to the force his family.
