Academy Training

Police Science should be a two year degree that culminates in the last six months being the police academy.  It should be open only to those who meet the minimum requirements to be a police officer in that state.

In California that means they must be a US Citizen, or legal resident, have a drivers license, be at least 18 years old and have no criminal history.  I would not want the class to be open to gangsters, illegal aliens, or other criminals.

They should have a year and a half of classroom training that prepares them to work the streets.  The law, Spanish, report writing, fitness should be part of every semester, because these subject take a long time to master.  The training should include military discipline, team building and the students should be required to cut their hair and wear a uniform; that's what the SGT Says.
