    Command presence, know what you're talking about...confidence.

    5' 08" and 130 on a good day. I get more respect and compliance from the ****bag's then my fellow officers. It is all about command presence and how you use your words.

    I never think less of a police officer who is smaller in size....and anyway you could wear some boots to give you an extra inch and strap on some kevlar to give you an extra 40 pounds (appearance-wise)

    It's in the mind set and officer presence in how you handle your self. I'm a skinny dude, about the same stats as you for that matter. I hit the road in a few days. I got crap in my academy for my size but I held my own.

    Law enforcement officers come in all shapes, sizes and colors. I wouldn't worry about it at all.

    I do get some solace from that thought.

    It's the small ones that you have to watch out for!

    You'll learn that it isn't always brawn...it's brains.....and how well you can verbalize. It also helps being able to go from zero to beeeotch in nothing flat!

    You'll be fine.

    I am a fairly large guy along with most on our dept. However, the smallest man on our SWAT team (as well as the smallest in the dept) could beat the stuffing out of the rest of us. Just feisty and quick.

    If you truly feel you need to be bigger try drinking supplements between meals and working out. It will add bulk. But as others have stated it is not necessary.
