Thanks, everyone. Lawman, I'm sure hoping so, too. My aunt retired out of this agency, and my grandfather from one of the predecessor agencies that was merged into it. I have some friends on it right now, too, so I *think* I have a pretty good idea of what I'm getting into, lol. It'll be an initial pay cut, but the benefits are better, and it'll cut my commute in half (worst case scenario). Plus, my state retirement time will carry over (same system).
