What is the easiest way to become a police officer?


Answer by  Stevek863 (33)

Joining the military should be the first step in the path to become a police officer. Being assigned to a military police unit will be especially helpful. Police departments are likely to hire individuals with the discipline that being in the military requires. The military will offer many training opportunities that will be useful in pursuing a law enforcement career.

My department requires: - A 4-year degree - A very thorough background check - A 3-part medical exam - A psychological exam - A physical fitness test - 2 written exams - An oral board with an officer, sergeant, and lieutenant All that just gets you to day one of the academy. And getting hired does'nt mean you will make it through.

If you want to become a police officer is to contact the recruitment officer for the police department that you would like to join. That officer can tell you what the requirements are so that you can prepare your body and study the information that the academy wants you to know before you take the entry exam.

You should start by attending a police academy and studying hard enough to pass the required tests. After that, you have to find a police force that has at least one vacancy and prove that you are the very best officer for the job. It helps if you know someone!

Igonore everything what Stevek863 said. He is obviously very proud military member-but full of it. If you really want to be a PO, avoid the military. Civilain police and MP are two totally different worlds-and do not translate. Military do not make good cops mostly. Go to college!
