    Hey, I'm looking to be a police officer for the city of Chicago and I was wondering if there are a lot of gay law enforcement officers or soldiers, if so, please leave a comment about your experiences and what not. Thank you.

    Portland, OR, has about what you would expect, a 10-12% gay police force. A good bud is a PDX cop and loved doing the job but upgraded to an FBI detail so don't sell yourself short on just community policing. A couple best buds are now retired Fed. Agents and loved their jobs and rose to supervisors. They didn't know but a couple/few gay men (open/out) who were Agents but also minority fed agencies w/that level of LE. CIA/FBI/ATF/Homeland Security must be lousy w/gay men and women, 10-12% or more, no?

    Only 50% of SFPD are cops? What are the rest of them? Robbers?

    I know several gay police in SF and some in other law enforcement agencies. All very professional and all seem very happy where they are. Probably depends on the city you're serving in also.

    Ex-British police officer here.It was the best job I ever had despite some initial problems with being gay.The cammaraderie I still miss.
    My advice would be to go for it and give it your best.That way you won`t regret anything later.Take every opportunity that shows itself.Do the routine policing and the specialisms(mine was wildlife/animals.)Join any gay police associations they have as it will support you and you`ll meet some great guys.Always remember you`re there to serve the public-they pay your wages.
    All the best with your career!

    Check out Protect & Defend (PAD). Its an organization for gay police and military professionals. They wont let you join unless your a peace officer, or military, but its a start of a great resource. I think you would be surprised by how many gay officers are in each state and city. PAD has a facebook page too! You could probably chat with a moderator.
