The content on this site will help you prepare. Many past recruits will tell you, if you arrive on day one with all of the definitions, codes, and dispositions already memorized, you can expect to be way ahead of the those who do not. This is information you will have to recall during inspection and written tests throughout the academy. Imagine the reduction in stress if you arrive with this knowledge, which we are providing for you on this site!
As we discussed with you during the fitness test, recruits who arrive overweight and unable to perform physically will cause stress on themselves they will not want or need. If this you, follow our fitness and nutrition plan on this site. The better prepared you are, the less stress you will have.
We are all about making each of you successful. Our academy is not designed to get rid of people. We need you! The fact is; however, regardless of the efforts we make to help recruits be successful, some determine the job is not for them. The reasons usually center around their inability to deal with academy life. Watch the videos in our theater on this site. You will see the type of physical training you will do. You will see that during inspection, we will be in your face asking you to recall important information. You will see we are going to teach you to make proper use of force decisions and test you on it in a realistic environment. The academy is tough and it is tough for a reason. Each of you who graduate will be given a responsbility that is given in no other job in the world.
