If you want to become a police officer you first need to graduate high school. Once you decide you want to become a police officer you must pass a written and oral exam, if you pass those; and you must pass with a 100, then you will have to take a physical agility test. Individuals who pass that are then taken into the police commissioner’s office for an interview. It can take up to a year for the second interview to occur. If after all of that then you will have to pass a background check and a psychological exam. Then and only then can a person be hired to become a police officer’..but you still have a long way to go with all the training and classes that are required by each department.
