First of all you are too young to become a police officer, you must be 16-20 to be an explorer, which later opens up opportunity to become a PO.
WHAT IT TAKES (Directly off LVMPD)
*Explorers not only represent themselves but they represent the LVMPD and our community as well. To become an Explorer, young people must meet the following standards:
*Currently attending high school, graduated or have obtained a GED.
*Be of good moral habits with no arrest or conviction records for serious offenses, or multiple minor offenses. (Must be willing to submit to a complete background check.)
*If a minor, must have parental approval, which includes signatures by the applicant and his/er parents or guardians on a general liability release and medical waiver forms.
*Be of good mental and physical health.
*Must have or maintain a "C" average or above in school.
*Attend four consecutive probationary meetings, and upon conclusion of the fourth meeting, submit to an oral board given by members of the Explorer Post.
