First off, you need to specify where you are doing this. That's because every STATE is DIFFERENT. Don't forget that. I have family in Law Enforcement in multiple states and I know how many variances there are for each state, let alone for each agency. So tell me what city and state you plan to do this in, and I can steer you in the right direction (hopefully, lol).

Be more concerned with your character than your reputation. Your character is what you really are, while your reputation is merely what others think you are.~unknown~

Here is an excerpt from LAPD:

If you are selected for the LAPD, you will be sent to the world famous LAPD Academy for six months of training. Training is rigorous, demanding and exhausting. It is also a rewarding life-changing experience. New officers learn how much they are capable of by succeeding at seemingly impossible challenges, both physical and mental.

Training is free and Officers are paid their full starting salary during training.

Much of the training occurs in the classroom. Officers learn law, human relations, Spanish and report writing. Officers are also trained in tactics, firearms and driving. Physical fitness and self-defense training plays a big part in the Academy. In fact, the physical fitness part of the program is so demanding that recruits are encouraged to start a training regimen before entering the Academy.


The LAPD Police Academy Curriculum:

Academics encompasses arrest and booking procedures, preliminary investigation techniques, radio and communications, report writing, traffic investigation, and traffic enforcement.

Driving includes the Emergency Vehicle Operations Course, which covers defensive driving, pursuit policy, and safe vehicle handling.

Firearms Training includes weapon care and safety, marksmanship, tactical manipulation with the sidearm and shotgun, and chemical agents handling (Police candidates are strongly discouraged from seeking firearms instruction prior to entering the Police Academy. Poor marksmanship habits may be developed that are difficult or impossible to overcome.).

Human Relations includes cultural sensitivity training, sexual harassment issues, media relations, stress management, disability awareness, community relations, tactical communications, hate crimes, missing persons, and domestic violence.

Law covers search and seizure, evidence, laws of arrest, crimes against persons and property, sex crimes, crimes against children, and other general criminal statutes falling under the California Penal Code, Los Angeles Municipal Code, Welfare and Institutions Code, and Federal Laws.

Physical Training builds strength and endurance through physical conditioning while promoting a positive attitude toward a fitness lifestyle. It also encompasses training in physical arrest techniques, controls, and weaponless defense.

Tactics covers patrol techniques and procedures, crimes in progress, building searches, vehicle stops, use of deadly force, and shooting policy.

LAPD Specific Training includes Advanced Tactical Training, Mobile Field Force Tactics, Patrol Ride-Along, Mobile Digital Computer (in-car computer) Training, Alcohol Abuse, Administration of Discipline, Cultural Diversity, K-9 Operations, Air Support Operations, Bomb Squad, Community Policing and Problem Solving, Spanish Language, Civil Liabilities, and Sexual Harassment Training.

speaking from experience, i would advise you to not get a BA in Criminal Justice, two-year degree is fine. It looks good on apps. And if this is really something you want to do, you're going to have to have patience in the process. it could take you many months, possible years, depending on the need of the department you're looking at. And in WA state the academy is, i believe, 16weeks. But the academy is the easy part.

go to connecticut, and join the state police, they are looking for help. while you are there you could go to the coast guard academy to get your degree and get into the CG.

connecticut is the top 2nd in the country for state police academys too.

I am goging to start the academy jan 18 for the florida state troopers.The app process took me almost a year and a half.I have no u.s. service backgorund no criminal record an also no traffic tickets.I also have worked as a security guard for 5 years now.It is one of the things that help me get in.More so for the protection of private property which it is worded on the app i think. Good luck with everything man hope it all goes well.

im about 3/4 of the way through the application process for the RI State Police and I have no military, law enforcement or criminal justice background. All I have is a four year degree and the desire to serve my state. The academy here is 26 weeks and is known as a real ball-breaker. I keep my fingers crossed everyday that they will allow me to attend in june 09.

to get an idea of the difficulty of becoming a RI state trp...there were over 2,000 people that took the written entrance exam and when all is said and done 35-45 canidates will be appointed.

full ahead hard and fast....
