  • age requirement

    Hey guys, Im 19 years old, and have been looking at a bunch of departments. I have a question about age requrement in NYS when it comes to being a sworn officer. I had always thought it was 21, plain and simple. Although now I hear that in new york you can be a sworn officer at 20. I know an officer who is now 24 and was a police officer at age 20.

    Now keep in mind he was working for a part time dept when he was 20. Im testing with a ton of depts right now, but also looking at part time places, Im sure they would hire a 20 year old before a full time place would.

        It's 20 years for a Police Officer. NYS Courts are Peace Officers so you can be hired at 18 for them.

              Most departments in NYS it is 20. Individual departments have changed the age to 21 and that is their own prerogative.

                You're right. I believe Suffolk County Sheriff's does hiring at 20.
