  • Do I need to be BIG?

    Hello. My "dream" is to become a LEO. Im currently attending a University in the state of GA. I know GA allows for P.O.S.T Training at the age of 18. After much thought, I have decided to finish my 4 year degree in Justice Studies (criminal justice major). When I grad, I will be 21 years of age. I then plan to apply to a local academy. Once I am approved through P.O.S.T I would start the 3 month course at the academy.
    Once I grad the academy and with my 4 year degree I will be looking for a job. Being so young (22 years of age), will that effect me getting hired?

    And do I need to be a huge swole guy? I know it seems idel cause I want to be an officer, the bigger is usually better. Does not being HUGE affect my chances and being an officer. Im currently 5'10 and 135 lbs.

    Just requesting solid advice.
    Thanks for your time.

    you don't need to be big, just be able to pass the PAT

    don't take criminal justice as a major. its nearly useless for a police career, and completely useless if you don't wind up becoming a police officer

      Yes, every officer in my department is 7'2" and 250. Arms like tree trunks! We're Bobby BadA!

      Heh. Just kidding man. It isn't how big you are. It's about intelligence. It couldn't hurt to come up from 135 a bit but it isn't a killer.

          If you're male, then yes, you have to be big. I think the smallest penis size allowed is 8 inches (soft).

                I was 6'0 and 135lbs when I graduated H.S. and then started working out some. I finally hit 190 after alot of weight training and eating right. IMO you'd want to put on some weight/size if you want to be a police officer. The bigger you are (muscle wise) the more the bad guy might re-think what he wants to do.

                  Seriously? You let guys that small in your department? We have the 1 foot rule which is standard here in the "Souf"!

                    I respectfully disagree. I've fought guys literally twice my size before; I don't use my strength against them. I use theirs. My uniform stays clean that way.

                      Or they may just try to see how much you can really bring it...Especially when drunk.

                      x2 on the worthless Criminal Justice degree comment.
