There really is no age limit, for most depts. Check with the law enforcement standards in your state and contact your local law enforcement agency (or the agency you are wanting to work for).

IT depends on where you're applying...but I can tell you this: I have a 50-year old male and a 53-year old male in my academy class...and they're beating us younger guys at some stuff out there.

In Minnesota you need at least your AA degree, then the academy then get hired. No maximum age, most departments like people with some life experience, i started at 29.

The Border Patrol accepts applicants up to 40 years of age. Go to www.usajobs.gov and search under "Search Series" tab and type in 1896 into the series box. Pay starts at about 35k (trainee pay) and goes up to about 70k by your 3rd year in. That doesn't include locality pay, yearly increases, and other bonuses.
