Hello everyone,


I am starting the police academy soon and was wondering if any officers out there has any good tips or advice that could be useful to me.


I appreciate anything you might have to offer.

Take lots of notes, and keep a note book.  Most Academy's require it anyway.

Seeing as though you have one post, you're probably not too serious about learning anything from this forum.  Pay attention and study, same way you passed high school.

Use some common sense. There should be no doubt what you must do. We see this question much to often.

 I posted this looking for any advice from the people I respect. That is you, thestugots01, and any other officer past or present.


The one thing I ask is that you do not judge my commitment based on how much I use an internet forum.

Bump.  Stay awhile, and learn all you can from your instructors and all of us.  The LEOs here range from shiny-boots rookies to grizzled vets - a lot of good advice from everywhere.

Make as many contacts (other cadets) as possible.  Networking is key in LE work.  E-mail addresses, phone numbers ,etc.  Not only is it a great tool for infomation, it's alway good to hear how everyone else is doing.

Working on getting contacts. The majority of our instructors are either officers or retired officers so its a start.
