  • Allegheny County Police Academy?

    I was looking into enrolling in this academy next year in January. I have been told it's a pretty good academy and certifies you to work anywhere in PA, although i still have to wait until I'm 21 to become an officer. Anyone here gone to it? Any opinions or things like that?

    IMHO I would NOT pay the 3 or 4,000 bucks to get certified as a cop then have to go look for a job. Thats me. I started in a department that put me thru their academy and that helped me get my current job.
    I say go to Arizona or Florida or any state that has growth and get academy there.
    Allegheny Cty. and most of PA is a hard nut to crack into, its because of major population loss and other socio-economic stuff.
    Good luck
    I got nothing for now

      Thanks for the advice, I was just looking into doing it to possibly try and get a head start, maybe make me look better and get hired more easily.

        You should come down to Maryland or Virginia like a lot of people do. Get paid to go through the academy then if you want after a few years move back. I'm on a dept of about 150 and I would guess about 15-20 are from the Pittsburgh area just like myself.

        I'm sorry, Bruce. These boys get that syrup in 'em, they get all antsy in their pantsy.
