    Hello! I have been thinking about joining the coast guard(enlisted). My future career interest is anything in law enforcement. I wanted to know what’s the difference between BM, ME and any other law enforcement career. What is the current wait time? Which jobs does more law enforcement? And any other tips and advice can really help me. Thanks!

    As to future LE careers, all agencies look for in military service is a clean record, good service, and Honorable Discharge. Your rating doesn’t matter.

    Understand that any rating (job field) in the CG, with the exception of aviation, can qualify to do law enforcement. Also know that the list for ME A school is closed for the foreseeable future. What that means is that when it ultimately reopens, the wait time to get orders will be extensive.

    They both do LE. BM's primary job will be driving the boat while likely being on a boarding team as a collateral. They're often even boarding officers as well. ME's advance a lot slower, and their list is currently closed as it is anyway. The ME's get into some cool niche spots like taclet and MSRT but BM's will have more billets available that they can conduct law enforcement from like white hulls and stations. Typically BM's, MK's and ME's share the bulk of the LE responsibility so whichever one sounds best to you that's worth the wait.
