  • Alea Academics?

    Hello all,
    Just wondering about ALEA'S academic portion of the academy. I know the physical fitness portion will not be a problem if one is in good shape. Thanks

    I would say that ALEA is 80% academics and 20% physical conditioning. Some of the tests are difficult and some aren't. I'm not the best study but I made it through ok.

    The most difficult (and important) class is Title 13 Criminal Law in my opinion. For me, the classes were very boring but necessary.

      The academics are not difficult as long as you study!!!

      Alot of the stuff is brand new to most people unless you were previously involved in law, or a cop somewhere else. It's stuff that people don't necessarily think about.

      You are given as much help as you ask for as far as the academics go.
      "When I close my eyes.....I'll see you on the other side....!!!"

      Hate to put it this way skippy, buy every night I suit up and climb in the cruiser I'm at war. I'm always outnumbered, potentially out gunned and always behind enemy lines.

          I figure it can't be *THAT* hard. You don't need a college degree to be a cop, so they can't make the academics too difficult. If you pay attention and study you have to be able to pass.

          Heck, I'm sure PT is harder than the bookwork.

            alea was not hard... it was more annoying then hard. academics are pretty much common sense buit some crappy instructors can get you confused with some crim law and search stuff.

                I would say the academics are taught at a 12th-13th grade level. If you want to know what to study then pick up an ARS book and read title 13 and 28. Maybe look up and read some of the bigger Supreme Court cases that apply to law enforcement as well like Terry V Ohio, Miranda V AZ, Cabella V TN and so on.

                    I only have a high diploma and i'm doing very well in the academic portion of the academy. It's not hard if you study.

                          Hey recruits in Alea, why don't you post your experiences daily.
                          It would be neat to know what you go through on a day to day basis.

                          of course if you are not allowed to tell.... then nevermind.

                          I just think it would be neat.

                            You are asking questions about training in AZ. Study the Arizona Revised Statutes, use Google to find them, then look at title 4, 13 and 28. They are the most important. However, also be knowledgable about the US Constitution and amendments, it is helpful to have a history background so you understand why the laws are as they are and be able to explain why.
