    Tons of threads about this and the answer is, yes lots of people start LEO careers later in life.

      Sure, I got on in my mid 30s; the advice is pretty much the same I'd give to a 21 year old. Get in shape, get hired, keep your head down and your mouth shut, and learn.

        We just hired a guy at 41, he's a hard old bas**** too.

          I was 35 when I went through the academy. Two of my classmates were retired Army, both in their mid-40s.
          The life experience you bring is seen as a plus where I work.

            I got hired at the ripe "old" age of 38!

              The old guys make the best police officers. Granted I'm old.
              This is for all you parents that like to put your kids names on the back of your mini-vans.

              STOP IT! There are predators that will use that information against them!

                My agency routinely hires military retirees, who are generally in their early 40s. The more life experience, the better. Go for it.

                  One of my fellow academy students was 51 when we went through the acqdemy and got hired together. I was 29. Mid-30s is not old. As others have said, the more life experience the better sometimes.
