  • Need Your Professional Opinions

    Hi. I'm new to this site and appreciate any advice you can give me. I've recently resigned from the airline industry and want to start a new career. What is your truthful input as to how old is TOO old to start in an academy. Certain agencies won't hire over a specified age. I don't want to go through the academy on my own expense and then not get an offer. Thanks alot for any advice. P.S. I live in Florida--dont' know the market that well.

      Had a guy in my academy who was about 65 years old(no kidding) he outran half the guys in class. it really depends on your PD and how good of shape you are in. Ive got a friend with Alexandria, VA PD who started when he was 40.

        You are in a good state to start, Lots of Departments looking for cops, if you can pass the state mandated physical agility test, then you are probably good to go. Had a guy in my academy that was 58, he was retiring from a full time national guard job.

            I do wish you luck. But man, I'm really glad I started when I did. I'm in my mid 40's, and I'd hate to be starting now. But hey, that's me. Best of luck.
