Applicant Selection

Only a limited number of candidates per session can be accommodated; therefore, there can be no guarantee of admission. Applications are reviewed by an objective selection process without regard to race, religion, sex, ethnic background, age, or disability status so far as it is safe for the student to handle firearms.

An independent selection committee will meet to review completed applications and objectively select the candidates with the top scores. Acceptance and successful progression through the Police Academy is contingent upon willingness to complete the required Federal criminal background check.
