Nevada Police Academy Requirements

If you plan on being a police officer in the state of Nevada then be prepared to go through a grueling and challenging couple of months at the police academy. The law enforcement training academy in any state is tough, even more so in Nevada.

That’s why it’s so important to be in good physical conditioning by following a police specific workout program prior to your arrival at the academy. If you are out of shape or overweight, you won’t succeed at the academy. It’s really that simple.

Here are some requirements needed to enroll into the Nevada police academy & qualifications needed to be a police officer in Nevada:

  • You must be 21 years of age at the time of appointment
  • You must be a U.S. citizen at the time of appointment

Background History Check:

You will not be disqualified if any of the following applies to you:

  • Conviction of a felony in the State of Nevada or a conviction in another state which would be a felony if committed in this State
  • Conviction of any offense involving illegal sale or manufacture of controlled substances
  • Conviction of a D.U.I. within the last five years, or two D.U.I. convictions in a lifetime
  • Domestic violence conviction
  • Any illegal use of a controlled substance within one year of the date of application including prescription drugs not prescribed to you
  • Intentional falsification, deception or omission of information during the application and background investigation process
