        It's just a list of police related terms. We got it during the first processing as well. If you graduated HS you should be fine...it's terms like apprehend, arrest, etc.

        • I have no police experience so there were some words I didn't know. Most of them are simple words like "caucasian, potential, poison" but some I have never heard before. If you want I can email you a picture of the list.

            Thank you!
            I would stay away from steel toe. We don't use them in police work. I don't know a single cop who does - no real reason and they are heavier during a foot chase...Though the troopers are probably different, some police depts are going the opposite direction - more towards shorter and lighter boots or ditching boots all together for black athletic shoes... (not a fan myself - but I'm old school)

              I personally thought it was bizarre to give a vocabulary list. If you need to know a word, you will figure it out during the academy. Weird...

              • Yeah i was in that first processing but i was out pretty quick i must have somehow missed receiving that list. But if its basic police terminology then it should not be that difficult. I also find it strange they would give a list maybe its a pop quiz we will get
                the first day and the people who pass will get a pizza party
