I am an 18 year old kid and I really want to be a police officer as soon as I get out of college. I had an internship in high school and know thats exactly what I want to do. I was just wondering about one thing on the tests to become a Police Officer. I have anxiety but its only when I get really over tired. I've told my doctor about it and he said  its nothing out of the ordinary because  its not alot of anxiety and it doesn't interfere with my everyday life and I only get it when I'm tired.I also know other officers that I had my internship that have anxiety problems and they are on a light dose of an anxiety reducing drug from their doctors. My question is: if I ever got on a light dose of anxiety medication like these guys did, would that be a DQ on the Police exam/polygraph test?? Thanks!!

Axe the agency. Relax and take a deep breath. You're 18 years old. Kick back for 3 years and be a kid. You can't get a LEO job until you're 21 years old. Don't overthink. Concentrate on school.

Is this in LE only?  How will the OP read the replies?


 


My advice would be to lay off and avoid the meds and see if you grow out of the light anxiety issue.  Teenagers tend to be anxious.


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.
