    Go through the academy. You will make friends who you will always be in contact with, and you can stand to make more money with the G.I Bill.

    I went through the academy at DPS and I got money from them, money from the G.I Bill and my retirement money from the military.

    Needless to say, I was not hurting for money while in the academy.

    That is just what I did. I spent 5 years active duty Army MP got out and got on with my hometown PD. I was required to go to the Police Academy and all the training everyone else did. Let me know if you have anymore questions. PM me if you would like and I'll fill you in better on what I had to do.

    When I separtated from the AF LE I was told by all depts in the KC area that I had to do their academy. But it got my foot through the door first because most depts want an Asso. degree or military exp. They look favorably more on the exp.

    I know Irvin, Dalls, San Antonio, DPS, Austin, and Houston make you go through the acadamy anyway. Although, I don't understand why you wouldn't want to just go through it. You get like 1250 now on top of whatever your department pays you. Its not a bad idea really, plus, if you don't have your degree yet, the acadamy is an accredited college (thats why you get the MGIB money).

    On a side note, shlsmv, I'm going to be moving down around boerne, and am looking at SAPD, could you PM me and tell me what morale is like in the dep., as well as how busy you are during shift, shift schedule, etc.

    In Texas it all depends on the department if they will let you do that. Some departments will still make you go through the full academy.

    I disagree with ignignokt373. I seperated from the AF after only doing 4 years. Shortly after I got out, I attended the Supplement Course to obtain my endorsement to challenge the TCLEOSE Exam. All the Supplement Course teaches is the 26 objectives that are required by TCLEOSE. It's nothing but book work. When it comes to dealing with "bad guys" on the street, hopefully, you use common sense, good judgement, and remember some of your training from the military. A lot of how you deal with folks on the street will come with time. The basic civilian academies will not teach you "everything" you need to deal with "everybody" you encounter. Like I said, a lot of it comes with time. Good luck with whatever endeavor you pursue and remember to always watch your 6.

    That is incorrect. There have been several threads on this in the past in the military section.

    Florida, Texas, and several other states allow you to go through and abbreviated academy and then challenge the state tests.

    On a side note, you're nuts if you do that. The LE stuff the military teaches you is horrible and is just barely enough to keep you alive if you encounter real bad guys.

    Use your GI Bill as supplimental money and go through a real academy after you get hired on by a decent agency.

    vet is right. you can skip through some phases and challange the test and do it that way.
