  • Looking to become a Class I

    I am wondering if I could get some helpful information about becoming a class I officer. I am thinking about applying to a shore town here in NJ for working the summer. I am 26 years old, i have never been in any kind of trouble, I have no points on my license and i do not use any drugs, smoke anything, or even drink. I have taken numerous tests for other LEO agencies and have passed them all and made it as far as the interview with the Psychiatrist for the Conn. State police. I do not have any knocks against me in any way, I went to school for a criminal justice degree and i am currently three classes from graduating. I realize that most of the competition is a few years younger then I am and I am wondering if that will weigh in on my chances.

    Thank you for your time

    Chris, I suggest you get in touch with the Department you wish to work for. They should be able to answer your question.

      Why not go for Class 2? Depending which shores you apply to some may require you to start as a Class1. Cape May county agencies generally dont require you to be a class1 and you can go to the academy in May for about 6-7 weeks.
      I don't answer recruitment messages....

        You are very much mistaken if you think 26 is old or that it will work against you. All things being equal, I would hire a 26 year old over a 21 year old every day of the week.
