Got out a year ago after 12 years and have not looked back, but I planned. Of course the best plans don't always work out either. I learned that when I left the military.
If you are looking for it, there is a world out there other than the PD. I worked patrol the entire time and was shocked at how normal and relaxed I felt shortly after leaving but I was ready.
If you are happy where you are stay there and do the best you can. Regardless of present perceptions it is an honorable profession. Should you decide to go, plan ahead, update the resume, get the credentials and education you need, and then make a wise and calculated decision (financially, family, career etc).
Do not make an irrational decision (ie leave expecting to find a job). It is always easier to find a job when you have one. The stress level is much lower and you won't become desperate.
Except in rare cases there is no one waiting for you to hand you a job. You can always find a job, but it usually means "settling" for what comes along. Be prepared to send out hundreds of resumes. In some instances at 0200 in the morning (yes...... I did) I would send out a resume and 2 minutes later get an automated response "After careful consideration of your qualifications we have decided to pursue other candidates" or some such nonsense. It is just a fact of life. Networking (a term I originally despised) is essential and is what got me the job. You don't have to prostitute yourself to network. Join a professional organization related to the field you are interested in, contact someone you know in the field. Over time someone will introduce you to someone who will introduce you to someone else.
A personal word of caution: you can always find something that involves sales but unless that is truly you, it is extremely difficult. I did sales for 3 years before I came into the PD and I absolutely hated it. In many ways it was more stressful. The enormous turnover in personnel should also indicate how tough it is. That is why they are always looking for people and make it look much more attractive than it actually might be (ie Financial services). You go to a place like Axa or Edward Jones (not picking on either but I worked for one of them) and you will see the majority of people are there less than 2 years. Then there is a wide gulf and you see people with 15+ years and not much in between. As police officers you should recognize that as a "Clue".
I planned for a year, got the certifications I needed, met people through LinkedIn etc. Went on interviews for jobs I wanted, and for practice, those I didn't want. Be prepared for all sorts of rejections regardless of how qualified you may be or think you are. Unless you are going to another Department, shelve the LEO mentality. Just like the military mentality, a lot of civilians are leery of it.
Fortunately when the offer came it was an easy decision: very flexible schedule, excellent working conditions and starting at more than I was making after 12 years. I have not seen 0400 since I left. That in itself is a good thing.
Good luck with your decision.
