What qualifications are required to become a police officer?


Answer by  patti (29325)

Each community determines the requirements for its police officers, including the selection of candidates for its police academy, if there is one. Generally, officers must be at least 21 years old, without criminal histories, without drug/alcohol problems, physically fit and without psychological impairments that would prevent the candidate from performing his duties as prescribed.

You should have graduated some sort of military school, or to be a law graduate. However, if you are a civil law graduate, you would have to undergo some training courses before being named a police officer.
