This is for a California based story. How hard is it to change locations, if a Deputy Sheriff in one county wants to move to another county? Can he just move into a vacated or open spot with no further delay or does he have to go through any sort of training thing, jump through some sort of hoops?
The LEO in my story has 5 years in Sacramento Police Department and 6 years in a county sheriff's department. He's in his mid to late thirties, an investigator and the county's only CSI go-to guy.
How about if he wants to go from Sheriff's Department to a city's PD?
What I really need is a timeline to get him from one area to another. Same state, just eighty miles south. Hopefully he'd be able to stay a deputy, but...he's willing to switch to be where he wants to be.
