You can be hired as a trooper trainee at the age of 20. Most PD's utilize the civil service standard of receiving a full commission as a Peace Officer at 21. Good luck!

In Texas, to be a peace officer or armed security guard, you need to be 21 years old. You can be 18 if you have 60 college credit horus or an assoicates degree or an honorable discharge from the military with at least two years of service. Jailers is set at 18 years of age.
