Interesting post,

Police Officer is a part of law enforcement department of the state. Many times the job requires the directing of traffic, investigating a crime or aiding a victim of an accident or crime. In local, state and federal police related departments a police officer’s career description includes maintaining law and order, collecting evidence and conducting investigations. A career as a police officer can be immensely varied and rewarding.

There are certain requisites to become a Police Officer wherein he or she should start with education. Police departments require a basic high school education, and additional training such as an Associates or Bachelors degree is recommended. A number of colleges offer criminal justice programs for individuals interested in becoming a police officer. Most of these programs involve education in human behavior, legal issues, computer systems, and a variety of other subjects which assist law enforcement officers. The more advanced your training, the more successful your application as a police officer will be. This training will also serve you well in the field.

Most departments would also expect candidates to undergo a full medical before they are offered training as a police officer.

Different police agencies specify different requirements for eligibility regarding education. Some departments may only appoint people with a high school diploma or GED. Some agencies may also require a person to possess an associate's or bachelor's degree.

The post test isn't easy contrary to popular belief. There are around 8 major categories on the test, and here's just 4 of them....

1. Reading Comprehension
2. Memory Orientation
3. Report Writing
4. Mathematics

Some have done well on the test, but many have failed misrebly. I reccommend downloading the top 100 most commonly asked police exam questions and answers to prepare at
