What is cop training?
Cops, also known as police officers, undergo multiple forms of training before they serve their community. Most training sessions, like the police academy, have a curriculum that combines physical conditioning and classroom education. The session duration varies from state to state; the Connecticut Police Academy sessions are 28 weeks long.
How do you enroll in a cop training program?
When enrolling in a police academy, a person must first complete and pass the entry-level test to become a cop. Once a law enforcement unit selects to hire you from the eligibility list, the department will arrange for you to take the next available academy session. A successful candidate will graduate from the Connecticut ran academy with 70% or better.
How to prepare for cop training?
You can prepare for training with physical exercise, learning stress management techniques, and developing good social habits. Becoming a cop is more than physically demanding; it’s also mentally demanding. Our associate degree in Criminal Justice at Goodwin prepares our students with criminal procedures, psychology, and ethical perspective education. Law enforcement requires a healthy mind and body, and Goodwin is excited to help build you up.
