Only if the department requires their officers to carry a tazer. If so, then yes, all officers must be tasered If you do get tazered, you should make sure you Have no muscle i…njuries or heart problems, as this could cause major problems to your health if tazered. If you were ever born with a heart murmur ot have muscle spasms do not get tazered. I hold a taser. There is High Medium Low voltage. in police training. Low voltage on a taser/tazer is Painful, But.. You will only have to do it for about a second then release. Being tased is one of the most painful way of dieing. You would most likely to die on high voltage.
Dont need none :P
you will need physical and mental training to become a police officer.
Mostly its the same the world over. Powers of arrest, State laws and sometimes Federal laws, firearms and baton and equipment training (walkie-talkie). Computer and/ or typing…. Special courses may come later. In Australia for some courses you have to go to part-time university. How to do lots of paperwork... its the killer... though much easier than it was. How to keep your nose clean. Common sense in everything and of course, compassion. Not every offender needs to be cuffed and carted away. In the U.S., you will need several years of college.
In most states, no. But in some states, they do require you to have some college credits. But you must graduate from high school to become a police officer.
A four year degree in criminal justice would do nicely. - - - - - - - - All States in the USA have what are called Police Officer Standards Tests. These tests are administ…ered by the State's lead law enforcement agency. For Florida it is FDLE for Tennessee it is TBI and so forth. The tests are broken down into sections that are usually a day long. For example you will have one section on Police Procedure, one section on Criminal Law and so forth. Go to the International Association of Chief's of Police the Job Announcements list the requirements. Most agencies require at a minium a two year degree and three years of military or former police experience. Many require four year degrees. Go to the individual department. You cannot even sit for the test in most states unless you have completed a six month recognized police academy. Once you are out that is just the start. You will be required to complete a Field Training and Evaluation Program (FTEP) that is usually as rigourus as the academy, minus the physical training that you completed in areas like PT and DT. Good luck.., you will need it. - - - - - - - - Another View: If both the above contributors are active law enforcement officers, or are fortunate enough to live in a jurisdiction that is served by agencies who require such high standards of their applicants, they are in the minority. The vast majority of law enforcement agencies (Police and Sheriff's Departments) throughout the US require simply a high school education or GED equivelant to make application. After that the individual standards that must be met by the applicant are either the agency's own standards or are set by the state. The applicant will have to undergo both physical and mental evaluation, and attend a required training course or classes which, depending on the agency, can run up to 6 months in length. The successful graduate will then undergo a minimum of a one year probationary period during which their performance of duty and fitness for the work will be evaluated and from which they can be terminated without appeal at any time. As with ANY occupation, the more education you have upon making application, the better you may fare during the job. Former military members (especially ex-military police) probably have 'an edge' in the process since they already are grounded in the basics of following orders in a regimented command system, and will usually fit well into a para-military environment such as a law enforcement agency.
Certain states require a certain amount of Police Academy training. It all depends on where you will be doing your job. For instance, you'll likely need more training in the s…tates of California or New York, as opposed to South Carolina or Iowa..
what kind of training and eduction are neede to become a police
police officer training
You go to a 2 year college program in Criminal justice and then when you get hired by a department you go through their training program.
Police officers are required to graduate from a police academy. Still, there are a number of community colleges that are affiliated with police academies and have joint progra…ms.
Where you are I am not sure but when I went to the academy for Alexandria City Police it was 6 months.
when you go to university you choose your study
(in the US) Yes, training is not only necessary, it is mandatory.
Got to have a High School diploma first. Next step is either go to college or join the army. I joined the Army first, then went to college and got a 4yr degree in criminal …justice. the you fill out tons and tons and tons and tons of applications and take test and all that other stuff. If you get picked. Expect to do a lot of book learning. The how to drive safely. How to shoot guys. Protect crime scenes. Interview suspects or witnesses. Conflict resolution. Use of force. Fire arms and deadly force. How to write reports, preserve evidence, and testify in court. Things that cannot be taught - are you, at your deepest core, a good and honest person? Do you honestly care about people and they job you want to do? Are you willing to put your own needs - up to and including your own life - behind the needs of the community. Can you keep your cool and help defuse voltile situations? Honesty knowing that you are being watched by others is one thing. But honesty is completely different when it's only you and no one else there. Do you still do the right thing in those situations? what does it take to be a teacher.........what does it take to be a doctor............what does it take to be a truck driver............Basically, a strong interest in the law enforcement field. The 'belief' that you could serve and protect the public. Ability to work with people of a comunity and be a guide to improving the welfare of a community.............that's only a basic reason. There are more if you think about it............... you will need physical and mental training to become a police officer.
A police training academy (run by the police for people they have accepted for training).
Because the training program to become a police officer differences from each jurisdiction, there is no set time the training can take place in. On the East Coast some trainin…g programs can take as long as 6 months.
