The police academy and graduation was the ultimate. I attended two police academics in Connecticut. The first was the municipal police academy, lasting 2.5 months. The second was the Connecticut State Police Academy which lasted 6 months. Law Enforcement is paramilitary at this heart. I believe most academics will be similar to Marine Corps boot camp. I had to live at the academy both times. There is a tremendous amount of knowledge to learn. Your law enforcement knowledge continues throughout your career. You can't not never have enough education. Good luck. 👍

I was eager to begin academy training, as I wanted to learn as much as possible so I could have a successful career. I knew that what I learned was going to be beneficial, as I transitioned to field training, upon graduation. Another benefit to the academy is you will create great friendships with fellow classmates.
