lateral acceptable career time?

What career time is eligible for the lateral conversation? (I.E. Corrections, corrections w/leo certification, assignment to a narcotics strike force?) My question is based on the fact I have almost 10 years with an agency, only half of that with the leo certification the rest as straight corrections with BCO and SFO certification. How much time is eligible?

To be eligible for the Lateral Hire, you must have at least 1 year patrol experience. I believe you will get the 1 for 1 benefits with your LEO certification date however.

Would the 3 years in narcotics not be considered good enough for lateral experience? I don't won't to come across wrong but, I would think with as advanced as narcotics is and the specialized work and training involved, it typically is more involved than some patrol positions at some agencies around the valley.

Unfortunately you would need to go through our full academy. You have excellent experience and would be a great asset to our department with those skills and knowledge, however we need to know that you have the ability to handle basic patrol calls as everyone starts in patrol until they complete the first year probationary period, the requirement for at least 1 year experience in patrol.

I have no issue going through the entire academy, I am more curious about starting pay range?
