Things to consider and be aware of
- What is your history?: Your focus in the Office - are you a brand new parole officer, an idealistic parole advocate or counselor hoping to help parolees find a new life outside of crime? What is your background and does it match or exceed the minimum education requirements?
- Note: Supernatural Department of Corrections' Concepts will require the approval of both Law and the appropriate Team Lead per standard protocol.
- New Identity and Law Enforcement PCs: Anyone who wishes to be employed directly by the city using a New Identity requires the 2 dot version. Exceptions can be made for civilian employees who want to mix the 2 dot version with judicious bribes, but this will not be as secure. Also, consultants and the like can have New Identity 1 and be fine.
