I'm schizoaffective. I have a chemical imbalance but I take medicine and I'm fine. I don 't know if I can be a cop or not? I guess my question is,
can I be a cop? can i legally be a cop?

Don't know. Only a Dr can tell you that. It may or may not be a disqualifying medical condition. What happens if you miss your medication? Do you become a danger to yourself or anyone? Do you lose sense of reality? These are questions only you and your Doc can answer my friend.

what little i do know about schizoaffective disorder is enough to know that if you really want to do for you;re fellow man then do not get into law enforcement.. in my state you cannot own a gun if you have been diagnosed with those types of disorders..........if you're doctor knows anything he/she should have told you that.

if you can, i would like to know how old you are now and when they discovered the first symptom. . correct me if im wrong it has been about 8 years since i had to talk with a person with that type of condition, but there is no cure, just treatment. you might not be able to become a cop but you might be able to help the cops understand how to deal with someone with that type if condition.

disqualifying medical conditions are different by each department in my area. It would be best to ask some of your local departments, or your local academy. Best of luck.

Best idea is to ask a recruiter at the LEO agency you are interested in. I can tell you that schizoaffective disorder would keep you from most federal LE jobs.

well, I don't have to be a cop. my dad owned a nightclub for ten years I thought being a cop would be
cool, I once knew of a lot of drug dealers in my town and at times the nightclub could be scarry
I saw a black guy flash a gun one time in the club but he didn't shoot anybody. I may be stupid or something
but for a while I felt like tom cruze in that movie collateral. I just wathced movies like Blood in Blood out,
and different movies and stuff. I guess being a cop is not for me. They wont let me drive a tractor trailer either.
Mabye I could go to school for forensics you don't carry a gun as a froensic scientist. I dont' know what I can do.

Ok, I've heard of schizophrenic, but not schizoaffective. Is there a difference?

I just took the CIT class this week. Still hearing voices, stand up, sit down, stand up, sit down....... Very eye opening class, the things people have to deal with on a daily basis on top of the bills, kids, spouse, etc...

Yep. The instructor was hilarious and had some great stories. He works for the crisis intervention team in Travis County. Had a facination for chasing imaginary squirrels......it's a long story.
