Diana,


Police departments are having difficulty filling academy classes due to the current public sentiments towards law enforcement. And, historically, departments have trouble finding enough women applicants. Women, generally speaking, can get hired pretty easily, so long as they meet the minimum standards pertaining to physical ability, character, education, etc.


Look at the "career center" link for the TX Municipal League. (tml.org) or the "resources>job center" link on tmpa.org (TX Municipal Police Assn) or aacog.com>employment opportunities (Alamo Area Council of Gov'ts) Lots of opportunities!

Be willing to relocate

Read and follow instructions PERFECTLY when completing an application packet

Prepare for the review board. Research this, be prepared for questions testing your knowledge of the various codes, situational questions, questions testing your ability to follow orders, make decisions, get along with co-workers, etc. In law enforcement, there is no time for hesitation. You have to be able to make split-second decisions, and accept responsibility for your actions.


If you have already started applying and are having problems, I will be happy to address specific issues with you -let me know!

James’s Answer

You can always look at popular job sites. They might have some options for you. You must decide whether you want to work in the public or private sector. Both can offer quite a bit of options. Another option is to look at potential federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies to see if they are currently hiring. There are some departments that are on continuous hiring due to the shortage of police officers today.
