    I was wondering if anybody has had any experience with the Central Texas Police Academy, in terms of merits, is it worth the money, does it assist in getting hired? Any insight is greatly appreciated.

    Maybe you have already done this but before spending your own hard earned money on an academy, reach out to 2-4 departments you'd like to work for as a TCOLE certified leo and get their recommendation on an academy. I know 2 departments who said they would hire from anywhere but in private they told me that certain academies get preference. Best of luck

      Yeah, I called a bunch of departments yesterday and got a few different calls today saying that they wanted officers and were more than willing to hire people who went through the process, although I may have just been getting discouraged due to applying to the larger big city departments and having bad luck. In terms of not getting selected or the entire hiring cycle completely getting cancelled due to budget cuts. I'm just a young guy and eager to get on the job is all. I was just wondering if anyone had any additional information about the school as I had heard that it was helpful to get certified to be a more competitive applicant.

        Some departments will require you do go through their specific academy regardless of prior training.
