PostSubject: What is needed to become a police officer?   Sat Feb 14, 2009 2:33 am

I will almost have my associate's degree soon. I know I need to pass a drug, background and physical fitness test. It also sounds like I will need to apply to an academy. Does this cost money and, if so, will they help you out if you really don't have any? How long do you spend at an academy? Also, does every agency give you an interview? Is there anything else that I will need to be aware of or prepare for?

Many relatively large police departments will send you to the academy if they hire you, and you would get paid during the academy. You have to check with the police departments that you might want to work for. Some departments require you to have already graduated from the police academy before they hire you. How much it costs and the length of the academy varies. Not every agency will give you an interview.

Apply to a couple large departments, and see if they hire you. It will save you money that way!
