Police Post Academy Requirements In Texas

If you want to become a police officer in the state of Texas as quickly as possible, I suggest enrolling yourself into the police academy. Upon getting certified, start looking for a police job immediately. I would start applying at mid-size departments first as the competition is less.

If you want to work for a large department, I suggest not sponsoring yourself to the police academy. Big departments normally operate their own police academy and they sometimes don’t accept training from anywhere else. I don’t know why, but that’s how it is at some large departments.

Also, if you plan on paying your own way to the academy make certain you get a police academy study guide. You don’t want to spend all that money and end up flunking out.

1 Comment on Police Post Academy Requirements In Texas

  1. Hi my name is Richard D. Moten, I\’am 22 years old and currently in the U.S. Navy I have been in for three years going on four and my scheduled date to get out the Navy is August 10th. 2012 and I have weighed my choices that I would like to become a police officer in the fine state of Texas. My phone is turned off right now due to the fact that I\’am in Japan right now on deployment with VFA-94 and I\’ll be back in the states on December 1st. 2011 so any guidance to make a perfect transition from the Navy to one of your fine police academies and begin my journey to becoming a police officer would be greatly appreciated. Thank you kindly Richard D. Moten.
