Becoming a Police Officer: Do your homework

I've been working on a page ( Become a Cop) for this site, that will aide people that are looking at a career in policing to get ready for the process. Here's Step #1

Learn your future boss:

One thing that I believe is very important when looking at becoming a Police Officer is if you have a city or area in mind that you would like to work, learn what they look for in future employees.

Most Police departments in North America have websites, and they usually dedicate a page or two to recruitment.

Here are two great examples of  recruitment pages, in the US ( NYPD ) and in Canada ( RCMP)

The Key is to look at what these departments are looking for and what you can do to give you the best chance.

Some Departments looking heavily on volunteer work, or taking part in your community, some will want a university degree others don't care at all.

The Key: Police Departments will do their homework on you, So do yours on them!!

Stay tuned for more steps.......


  1. Checked out the site but they are full up in the Police Communications Technician spot so I guess, no moving to NY for me. Oh well, like Canda anyways.

  2. Yeah, I saw the pay which is alittle better then here but the cost of living is so much more!!!
