  • Police Accademy?

    What is the police academy like? Is it closer to high school with extended PE classes or is it like Boot Camp?

    Well Ill put it to you like this. I have fond memories of the academy becasue it is OVER. Being the police is the greatest job on earth, but training to be the police can really really suck Alot.

    Psycology is the biggest part of the traditional police academy. They stress you out, put you in no win situations, and see how you cope. Its defenetl NOT like high school with extened P.E. class. Police training P.T. is not a joke. Youll see when you get there. Just remember when you training to go into the academy (YOU SHOULD BE TRAINING BEFORE YOU GO!) remember you can never run to fast or to far, and you can NEVER EVER do enough push ups.

      They vary tremendously. Some are low-stress "gentlemen's schools" and some are like Marine boot camp, but worse. The "worse" comes when the staff are more interested in making the recruits' lives miserable and encouraging them to quit than in finding activities that actually contribute to training. The proponents of this end of the extreme contend that this environment produces a tougher officer who is better at handling stress, but in my experience it just produces people who have experienced bullying after they were made helpless, and are now ready to do some of their own.

      If you have a particular academy that you're interested in, your best move might be to post a message in the forum subsection devoted to that state, as there will probably be some people there who have either attended that academy in the past or are in it now.
