Becoming a police officer is not a small or light decision, as it requires a strong commitment in order to see it through successfully. A person must be willing to put their lives on the line for people they don’t even know, and be willing to take enormous risks.
The minimum requirements for starting the road to becoming a police officer is the completion of a high school diploma or GED. A degree from an institute of higher education is optional, but can help an applicant’s chances in the classroom. The person must first pass the law enforcement entrance exam to enter the police academy. Once inside the academy, the recruit must pass a series of grueling physical and mental tests to determine if they are qualified. After passing the requirements, the recruit graduates from the academy as a full-fledged police officer.
Once the person has graduated from the academy, more challenges still lie head. As a new officer, they must work to make themselves recognized as a valued part of the force and the community. Working towards a promotion is also something a new officer can strive for. Paul Brunst has managed to successfully accomplish all of this. His work and commitment to protecting his community are what drives him to succeed.
