 I am 40 years old with three degrees and currently teaching school. I have always been interested in law enforcement and I am working on trying to go to POST in Idaho but was mentioned to about ISP. AM I too old to apply for ISP?

 What is ISP? Idaho State Police?


you'd have check with agency/agencies you are interested in working for. Each will have different recruit/hiring policies and requirements.


I had academy classmates who were well into their 40's starting out.

 Yes...Idaho State Police. However, ISP  is another 16 weeks of intense training. I know about 10 yrs ago I could do it. Now in somewhat of great shape I'd have to workout intensely for their type of training, but still, mentally I know I can, just the 40 thing is getting to me. Thoughts?

 As Metro alluded to, you would really need to check with the Idaho State Police as to their recruiting and hiring policies.  


I will say that I have also seen officer's in their 40's going through the academy here in Ohio so it's not unheard of (here at least).  If this is what you want to do, then don't let anyone dissuade you.  Age is just a number.  Best of luck to you.

A couple of minutes on the ISP website and I found the following: 1) no mention of maximum age in requirements., 2) a list of recruiters, depending on where you are in idaho with links to contact them.  use 2) and as Uncledennis would say, just axe.

I was with the O.N.P.D.the F.B.A.P.D.,the V.C.S.O.,the C.C.S.O. and they didn't have any S.A.R. W.T.P.L.---The S.A.R. is specific age requirments.The W.T.P.L. is welcome to Police Link.The others are highly classified law enforcement organizations I was a member of.I'm easy though,if you beg me I will tell you what they are.
