    Probably a good amount of number. Just score high on the test and you'll increase your chance to get hired.

        Police recruits who are not licensed peace officers in the State of Texas are required to complete a 22-week basic training program at a regional police academy (North Texas Council of Government or Collin County Law Enforcement Academy). After completing the academy, and successfully passing the Basic Peace Officer License examination, recruits attend a five week mini-academy at the Plano-Richardson Police Training Center in Plano. Plano recruits will be assigned to the Patrol Division for field training after completion and passing of the orientation phase. They will remain with a field training officer until completion of this training, approximately 17 weeks.

          They do! I hope you tested. They even help you out if you have a high enough score they offer for you to do the interview with a background investigator and polygraph the same weekend. I wasn't able to take the polygraph but got the interview over with.

          The investigator said they try to work with out of state applicants or from far away in Texas to make a little trips as possible. Which is a big relieve!
