Age Limit On Becoming A Police Officer

Postby Felipe » Wed Nov 16, 2016 4:57 pm

Hi Jason, I am almost 50 yrs. old, when I was 18 I knew I wanted to be a cop.  In 1975 there were no police "women", I was even laughed at back then for wanting to become a police officer.  My dream has never died, I just became a mother & most definitely older.  Is there any chance for me?

Linda;  I would say as long as you are still physically fit, and able and willing to do the job, to go for it!  Age discrimiation is illegal as long as you can pass the required testing(unless you are applying to the federal gov't, they DO age disriminate..go figure...) so I'd say give it a shot!  What do you have to lose?  Well worth the try, and your life experience should give you a "leg up" on the younger set.
