A Police Officer serves to maintain law and order in local areas by protecting members of the public and their property, preventing crime, reducing the fear of crime, and improving the quality of life for all citizens.
A police officer is responsible for enforcing the law. Police officers are assigned to locations to patrol and watch for crime, enforce traffic violations, investigate criminal complaints and respond to emergency situations.
A felony, domestic violence conviction, lack of driver’s license, bad work history, undesirable academic performance, severe medical condition, poor physical fitness or substance abuse issues will all most likely disqualify you from being a police officer.
