1. Contract Federal court security.

2. Here in the LA Area, just about all of the cops working at the Burbank airport are retired from local agencies.

Walmart greeter/security. But, do you want to do the same thing and deal with the same idiots you dealt with for the last 20-30 years? If you do it doesn't make sense to retire and take a pay cut. A friend went to work for the IRS chasing down deadbeats and finding property they were hiding. He was able to get .gov to pay for travel doing investigations - he paid for the wife to come along and they had some nice vacations on our $$.

The sky is the limit. You spent a career being a chameleon, spend a second doing it again with something different.

Make your next career out of an interest. Doesn't really matter if it's directly LE related. We got guys that went to work for LEAs in different retirement systems, teach, start a small business, work for a non-profit, consult, sales to LEA...

I know of two retired cops who work as handymen for the elderly. Low stress and still doing good work for people who are in need.

Many guys I know work as personal body guard for celebrities. My old patrol friend house sits for a billionaire. My brother retired from the county service and was picked up by the CA DOJ.

Become a flight instructor and work for a community college. Both of my instructors are retired police officers.

If you have an expertise, like traffic accident investigation, gangs, narcotics or any other expertise that court has the list for, you can send in your CV or resume. A panel of judges will evaluate it, and once they are satisfied, you will be on the list and lawyers will call.

I have a friend that did 20 years with LAPD and went to work as LACO DA investigator. He's got almost 20 years at that.

I would not recommend becoming a certificated high school teacher. Our educational bureaucracy is not designed for students' success. It's designed to self-perpetuate and transfer $$$ from taxpayers to school districts.

I wasted 10 years in a that worthless bureaucracy.

I'm more convinced that vouchers are necessary.

Good idea, maybe I could finally find out if I will ever stop getting at least a little queasy on fishing boats!

I teach at two local police academies. Love it! Giving back, less stressful, and the money is good.

I know a lot of people who retire out of PERS when they max out and hire on with another agency that has a different retirement system. They effectively "double dip" that way so yes it can make financial sense.
