      People from all sorts of backgrounds get hired and even many current police officers get turned down. The important thing is to abide by the law, build a good work history, get along with those around you, and either further your education or have a military background... be in shape too, because nothing else matters if you fail the physical testing.
      Thanks GrayState, that was very helpful.

      • I got into the academy at 23 and my quad mate was the ripe age of 21. The 21 year old is now in the SORT school so I firmly believe its the maturity of the person processing. As you see when you get on the job there are middle aged people who act like kids. I'm hearing we got federal money to put in a class at the end of the year for 2010. Just a rumor and it's to be 90-100 guys.

            • That would be awesome, if its true, however I wouldn't give up hope on an academy this year. I've been looking around to take other (police officer) tests in Syracuse and Buffalo, both areas have tests coming up for the city, county, and towns. The federal gov. is still hiring, or accepting applications at the DEA, FBI, SS, and even the State Dep.
              I just try to keep an open mind about, and eventually something will happen. All things considered, I would love to be a State police officer. From what I have seen they are the most professional and get the highest quality of training; plus me having a military background, it would be a better transition.
              We won't know for sure until letters start going out, but as others have said here keep applying around for other jobs/careers that may interest you. Don't put your life on hold for the state, because they won't put anything on hold for you.
              It is what it is.

                      Have you been snooping through my desk?

                      Actually, a certain SGT that you dealt with last night is leaving in April.
