Getting Hired

Physical fitness is important in police work.  Keep yourself in good shape to be able to pass the physical fitness testing and the academy.  Save your money.  The police academy does not pay a lot and you may need more cash to make it easy to pay all your expenses.

Learn to read and write well.  Failure to write good police reports is often a cause of failure with recruits.  Take basic English skills courses at your local community college.  Take creative writing to become better at expressing your thoughts in writing.

Consider joining the military service.  Veterans often get a preference when they apply for civil service jobs.  The military training will be similar to the police academy.  The discipline and physical fitness will be similar to the police academy.  Competition for police jobs can be fierce and so everything you do can help; that's what the SGT Says.
