Following the advice from several police linkers, I am working on several applications: Sheriff's department deputy, Sr administration assistant, criminal justice officer, and yesterday I e-mailed my application to a city pd for police officer recruit to enter the academy. This morning (less than 24 hours after that application submission) I received a phone call saying I was invited to test for acceptance into the academy. Obviously, I am stoked to have received such a fast reply, especially since applications will be accepted until the end of August and I figured they would see my DOB and dismiss my application but they didn't. So now I have a question for those in-the-know: what is involved in the testing to get into the academy? I am betting on physical condition and probably reading comprehension and writing skills, but what else? And how should I go about toning and strengthening for the physical aspect? I would hate to get accepted, then get injured because I failed to adequately prepare myself during the six weeks before the testing begins. Thanks to all for the previous advice and thanks to those willing to help me through this next step.

 Every department is deferent. Why didn't you ask when you had the guy on the phone earlier?

Hi rypete,


    I was out of my car, the phone was on the charger in the car, and the message was waiting when I got back in the car.  One of those - "oh rats, missed it" moments and was my first thought after listening to the message.

I just graduated with honors and a 3.96 GPA: a BS in criminal justice and a secondary concentration in criminal justice business management. However, I am 49.
