I just wanted to introduce myself.  My name is Skip. I am 38 and will be starting the academy in Central Florida this coming January.  I am very excited to take the first steps in a life long dream of becoming an LEO. Though I may be behind the curve as far as age. I am hoping that will be a pro and not a con as far as the hiring process.  I also wanted to say thank you for this site and the information herein, as well as the support everyone on here graciously gives.

skip,  Welcome to PL from the midwest, and you are probably not behind the curve for LE in FL unless you are over 60.

 Yes Sir! 2 miles every other day. About to jump it up to 5 days a week next week. Pushups, sit ups, dumbells etc. every opposing day for about an hour. :) If Im going to be working with the younger recruits I gotta keep up. :)

 Skip, welcome from suburban Philadelphia. Before I retired, I hired an officer who was 40.  He was one of the best officers I ever hired and I'd do it again in a heartbeat. Good luck as you pursue your dream.

Wecome aboard, any update?


Have ASP will travel.

Justice is the one thing you should always find, you gotta saddle up your boys you gotta draw a hard line.

When the gun smoke settles we'll sing a victory tune and we'll all meet back at the local saloon.

And we'll raise up our glasses against evil forces singing whiskey for my men beer for my horses.

I am curious if you are attending on your dime or if an agency is sending you? Relax and take a deep breath. I have known recruits age 50 and older attending the academy. Keep your ego in check.
