    Post Possible Jobs with Peace Officer Certification

    Hi,

    Im 22yrs old and live in Houston, TX. I will be starting the Basic Peace Officer Ceritification Academy at UofH Downtown in August. I have no previous college hours. The course gives you 28hrs of college credits (I think) and certification with TCLEOSE. i want to get into HPD but you need 48hrs of college credits. What kind of job can I get in Houston or surrounding areas with this certification? The only ones I've seen so far that I could apply for is Stafford Police Department, Bellaire Police Department, and Harris County Constable. Alot of them want the certificate plus two years of experience, but were can I get the experience if each job wants experience?

    I've looked into State Trooper, Sheriffs Department, Constable, Sugar Land Police, Stafford Police and Bellaire Police

    Thank you,

    Richard

    Why not enroll in college courses until you meet the minimum requirements? If I were you, I would put off the Academy until I had (at least) a couple of years of college under your belt. You'll be glad you did later.
