maryland: larger than it looks

Since Husband is currently applying for a job with the *Maryland *State *Police *Department, I took it upon myself to take a look at the different areas in Maryland in which we could end up residing, should they decide to hire him.

Firstly, I should mention that in the Electoral College, Maryland takes up a whopping 10 votes. One would look at that and assume that there wouldn’t be much research to do in terms of where to live.

One would be wrong.

When I pulled up the list of Troops online, the list consisted of some 30 troops. That means that there are 30 different possible locations in which the Husband and I could be stationed.

No problem, you say, they’ll tell you, won’t they?

The short answer to that question is yes. The long answer, is that they don’t actually tell you where you’ll be stationed until you complete the academy, at which point they give you 30 days to obtain a Maryland address. Now, logic says that they would keep you in an area in which you are familiar. That way, you won’t have to learn streets and environment in addition to having to learn the job itself. Rumor has it, however, that the *Maryland *State *Police are notorious for stationing you in an area in which you are unfamiliar.


So if anyone out there wants to help me research houses, jobs, schools, and the general cost of living of 30 different locations in Maryland, it would be greatly appreciated. We wouldn’t want me to end up in the ghetto or something. It wouldn’t end well for anyone involved.

    A friend of mine’s husband went through training a few years ago and got stationed nearby, but he was at the top of his class — apparently he had top choice because of it. Hope that offers a glimmer of hope…

    apartment with a month-to-month lease sounds about right!

    I can help you with the nice parts of Maryland (and actual tell you the crappy parts to avoid) but the mediocre ones I may be fuzzy on.

    I refuse to help me because you WILL NOT be leaving me! This is my mantra so you can just look at the nearby MD areas.
