I don't know if Cincy Police still has a Cadet program but it's something to check out. If not, maybe a Dept. in your area has one, every bit helps.
With relatives on the dept. that will be helpful, also who the Chief of the Dept. is too.
As you well know Cincy is a tough place to be a Cop. They don't have a lot of backing from the spinless council. They(Council) only know one thing and that is to kiss the butts of the criminal element in the City. We make a lot of runs with the Cops and they do a heck of a job considering all the obstacles they face.
We have a number of 'former' coppers on the Fire Dept. because they are tired of all the bull they have to face. Plus, a lot of them are leaving for the suburb Departments.
Hope your dream comes true.
Mike

Thanks a lot for the support sluggo. And about the Cadet program, yeah my brother was apart of that and I hope to as well. I'm sure everything will work out.

The main gist of all this is YES it can be a good living BUT you do have to treat it as any other BUSINESS and for that, it IS work. In fact you will find that you do not have the same luxury to keep learning more and more tricks because when most amateurs are doing that you are busy trying to book your next show, restaurant gig, etc...

Didn't Vernon say something to the effect that if you love magic, you shouldn't go into it professionally?

Not that you guys don't love magic, but I think he meant that doing it professionally cuts into your time for enjoying it. Or something like that.

And I suppose the same advice applies to many fields of activity, not just magic.
