How can I become a IAS police officer?

im in interest in public service.i want to control corruption. #ias #educated


Hey Abhishek! If you're in the United States, I know that some sheriff offices offer a Sheriff's academy program, which is open to all students. I participated in one myself, and I really enjoyed it, and it gives you a good introduction to police work, and you also get to know your local police officers. You can then ask them for guidance, as they have been through the process themselves, and you can go from there. Hope this helps! Albert P.

Dhanesh’s Answer

Hi Abhishek,


Being a police officer is a meaningful and impactful way to serve a community. Becoming a police officer doesn’t rely heavily on formal education; in fact, a high school diploma is often the minimum formal education required. An associate’s, bachelor’s or graduate degree is rarely mandatory. Instead, extensive and specialized training is required. This training is often provided by police academies on the local, regional or state level.


Steps to Become a Police Officer
1. Meet the basic requirements. You must also be at least 18 years of age, have a driving license, and be a legal resident of the United States in order to become a police officer. Some police departments, however, require recruits to be at least 21, so double-check the age requirement with your local department.




  1. Be an upstanding citizen. Police officers are expected to act as role models in their communities, and it's never too early to start embodying the values you will be tasked with enforcing. Avoid using illegal drugs, drinking alcohol to excess, and committing crimes, no matter how small. All of these behaviors can make it tougher to get a job as a police officer when it comes time to apply.




  2. Start building good credit. When you apply to become a police officer, the department will run a credit check as part of your background check, and you will be penalized if your score is quite low. Avoid accumulating debt, and pay your bills on time.




  3. Have a strong work ethic. Having work experience helps prepare you for the long hours and strict requirements of a police officer job, and it also gives you an edge over applicants with no experience. Your job experience doesn't have to be related to law enforcement, although that can help; any work experience that shows you're responsible and capable of doing a job well will help.




  4. Get physically fit. Police officers have to have quick reflexes, the ability to run short or long distances, and the strength to detain suspects. You'll have to pass a physical agility test to qualify for becoming a police officer, so start working out now to make sure you're in your best physical shape.




  5. Know what the job entails. Police officers are a familiar sight around communities and in the media, but in order to really understand what its like to be a police officer, you have to spend time on the job with one.

Satish’s Answer

The candidate must have at least a bachelor’s degree from a recognized university to take the UPSC exam.
Even those candidates who have written the final year exams of the qualifying exam (bachelor’s degree) and are awaiting results can apply. Also, candidates who would write the final exam are also eligible to apply for the IAS prelims exam. But, these candidates must produce the proof of passing the exam while applying for the IAS mains exam.

Steps to Become a Police Officer
Step 1: Obtain the Necessary Education


A high school diploma or a GED is typically the minimum level of education needed to become a police officer. A college degree may appeal to potential employers and may even be required by some law enforcement agencies. Through an associate's or bachelor's degree program in criminology, police science, public administration, or criminal justice, undergraduates can obtain helpful knowledge and skills to apply to a career in law enforcement.
Success Tips


Build up physical endurance and athleticism: Police officers need to remain in top physical shape due to the demands and dangers involved with the position. Officers regularly have to actively chase down and capture criminals who flee crime scenes. Participating in high school or college sports, along with exercising regularly, can build up the necessary endurance and athleticism to become a police officer.


Take foreign language courses: Police officers regularly need to work with people from a variety of cultural backgrounds, including people who don't speak English. Proficiency in a foreign language can help a potential police officer communicate more efficiently with witnesses or suspects and may help them stand out to potential employers.
Step 2: Submit an Application to a Police Department


A completed application needs to be submitted to the police department in the applicant's desired work location. After being accepted, applicants are placed into a pool of eligible candidates for future police officer openings. Depending on the hiring situation, applicants might be immediately moved into a training program. Alongside the application, prospective hopefuls must pass fitness, drug, and lie detector tests, along with a civil service test that ensures that job candidates possess the qualities needed to be a police officer.
Step 3: Graduate from a Police Academy Training Program


To become a police officer, accepted applicants need to complete a rigorous training program. Police academy training generally lasts about 12-14 weeks. Programs combine classroom study with physical training. Coursework covers the law and civil rights as well as proper police protocol and responses. The physical aspects of the training involve learning self-defense techniques and proper firearm usage.
Step 4: Actively Work to Obtain Promotions


After completing the training academy program, graduates can begin work as police officers. According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), with the right experience and training, police officers can choose a specialization like narcotics or juvenile enforcement. Promotions available to police officers include captain, lieutenant, detective, and many others. The BLS also notes that police officers can receive new vocational opportunities at the federal level.
Success Tips


Continue education: A variety of continuing education options are available to police officers, and participation in these options may help an officer obtain promotions. Some examples of commonly available continuing education options include courses in specialized areas of the law, conferences, and seminars.


Network and Display Dedication: For those interested in specializing in a particular field of law enforcement, it would behoove them to become acquainted with the detective or lieutenant in charge of that particular division. In addition, showing dedication, strong work ethic, and finding novel ways to excel and impress can definitively help someone land their dream position.

Getting Ready to Become a Police Officer


Meet the basic requirements. You must also be at least 18 years of age, have a driving license, and be a legal resident of the United States in order to become a police officer. Some police departments, however, require recruits to be at least 21, so double-check the age requirement with your local department.[1]
Be an upstanding citizen. Police officers are expected to act as role models in their communities, and it's never too early to start embodying the values you will be tasked with enforcing. Avoid using illegal drugs, drinking alcohol to excess, and committing crimes, no matter how small. All of these behaviors can make it tougher to get a job as a police officer when it comes time to apply. •Having a felony conviction as an adult, a misdemeanor domestic violence conviction, or a conviction for a crime related in any way to race (a hate crime) disqualifies you from being able to pursue a career as a police officer
Start building good credit. When you apply to become a police officer, the department will run a credit check as part of your background check, and you will be penalized if your score is quite low. Avoid accumulating debt, and pay your bills on time. •Get a credit check now so you know exactly what financial state you are in.
•If you don't have good credit, take steps toward building it back up. Even if your credit score is low, the efforts you make to attain better credit will show that you're a responsible person.
Get physically fit.

Excel during your interview. Competition can often be steep, so you will need to do your best during the interview
