Try Law Enforcement Response (LER) or Trust & Safety roles for social media and internet companies.

Lots of ex-law enforcement in digital forensics, legal investigations and cyber security.

I just saw a posting just yesterday on Linkedin, of a remote-only monitor of Snapchat's safety team. They wanted someone with an LEO or first responder background. I think it was part-time to start with option to go full time.

I made the transition and haven’t looked back. Miss the badge sometimes. What are you trying to do in the private sector? There’s a ton of us in digital forensics/cyber.

Hey everyone!

I am looking at moving from regulatory to sales for medical devices/pharma.
