I wasn't interested and politely declined, wanting the glitz, glamour and excitement of traditional patrol work. I love patrol, but the better pay, benefits and not having to relocate seems pretty appealing.
Hmm, interesting. I just took NS's aptitude test a few weeks ago. It seems like it has potential to be an interesting job, though I doubt I'll get it.
From the questions on the testing, I would wager that the majority of crimes you deal with are thefts, especially organized crime thefts of cargo and employee perpetrated thefts. Not much else except maybe running off hobos / criminal trespass and such. Are there even still hobos out there?
