    is anyone here familiar with a cop or a cop themselves?

    just curious how the hell do you become a cop? is it true you dont need a college diploma and you just have to take a civil service exam or something like that?

    If you have the personality and the desire, sales positions can really rake in some dough. A good number of them don't have any background in higher learning but experience is a must.

    PS I thought it was kinda of funny and ironic your contemplating a career in law enforcement and when you have a reputed gangster as your avatar. Classic bro.

    LOL, im hypocritical like that i guess... and i do have alot of experience in sales but i hate the hours, i was doing sales for cologne fragrances making like 16 an hour at malls but its not my thing, i would rather just drive around and bust balls all day...plus the cologne sales i was doing is only temprary unless your really good at it pulling in thousands of dollars in sales a day like my boss was doing...

    Cops juice too! I know lots of people that worked corrections and the beat. How you become a cop depends on the state you are in. Some do require a polygraph and ask something like, "have you used or sold illegal drugs within the last 5 years"... so convince yourself that AAS is not illegal... in some countries it isn't

    I had a buddy that wanted to be a cop and said he had to wait "one more year" until he was eligable.... I was like, "why dude?" - he said, "Cause it has been 4 years since I last got stoned!" lol

    You can beat a polygraph... kiss the examiners ass (it is all based on his interpretations of the test) and do the anal sphincter squeeze with every question (that way you look nervous for the entire thing)... Look up beating a polygraph on the Net... lots of info...

    Deffinitly - you'll probably be surprised at how eager someone on the inside is to help someone persue the same career... ask him what it takes. As far as school, - some do require you get at least an associates within your first few years...

    Dallas just got a new chief, he made some noises like he'd like all local cops to have a college degree. Right now it's just 45 hours with a 2.0 average.
    Anyway, their website can tell ya what the big city wants.
    Small towns in Texas aren't quite so stringent . . . I think all you really need is a Texas Peace Officer's certificate (or something like that).

    I have many friends that are cops. On a city level and a state level. I know that the city level you are more likely to get in without a degree. State police in PA don't require a degree but will take a person with a degree before the person without one. NY Stats Police require a degree. There is some good cash in being a state police officer. You can always try for a local police force then if you like it take night classes at a local school and get your degree then aply for a state job. Best of luck bro. Do it while you are young though. Allot of places have age limits.

    Check out www.officer.com. They have a forum you can join (takes a couple days to get approved). There are officers from all over who should be able to answer your questions.

    he must be talkin about being a PTA or somthing, bc you have to be 21 to be issued and carry a handgun in the US, you can start a training rotation at 20.5, long as your gonna be 21 within a few months of graduation, ive never heard of any place having police officers at 19...

    Sounds like an explorer program. He could always start there and work his way into the department that way.

    It depends on the Department you are applying too. For example the NYPD reqiures 60 credits, whereas Suffolk PD on Long Island doesn't require any. Also I don't know of any Dept that requires college to take the written exam, however like I said above, you may need college to be hired after you pass the test.
