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
