If the waivers are granted for police officers etc. it kind of defeats the purpose of tightening up the rules! The rules apply for all who want the job. Goodness sakes it seems like a no brainer to me! If we need more workers in this area, then hire them and vet them well. Don't just move police officers into this positions to save money. These jobs are too important not to give them the respect they are due. Take the time to educate them well and pay them a decent salary.
