  • Houston Police Department - January 2020 Academy

    Hello all,

    I'm currently a Fast Track applicant with the HPD. Just wanted to see if anyone else is in the process for the January 2020 academy and how far along/process you are currently in. Does anyone have any feedback regarding HPDs academy or department as a whole? I was in Houston last weekend and really enjoyed the city in general and had a wonderful vibe with the HPD. I'm currently in the background investigation portion and anxiously waiting to here back!

    Additionally, does anyone have any tips on potential rental areas that are low COL and close enough to the academy? Anyone else a fast track applicant? Or any other tips or advice regarding HPD and Houston in general? I'm a Massachusetts resident FYI!

    Thanks!

      Thank you! Hows rent around the area? I would be looking for a decent area but nothing outrageous.

          Would anyone know if the salary for a Houston police cadet is still $42,000? I see a recent blog post on their website regarding an increase in pay, however, it does not specify the original salary compared to the new salary. Thank you

                It’s going great. Start running, work on pushups and prepare yourself! It’s a lot of work but well worth it.

                  Do you have to shave your head in the academy?

                      the standard is no taller than 1/4 inch but yours will never be that tall in the academy. You’ll want to shave it about once a week.
