Do you guys think im f*ck3d? (LEO Employement question)
Hey all, I'm graduating from college with a bachelors in criminal justice this Saturday. I decided I wanted to be a cop back when I started college so applied to the local Chattanooga Police Department.
I have a 3.4 gpa, deans list every semester, golden key scholar and all that jazz. I did a 140 hour internship etc.
Heres my issue, I took the physical test and got a 73/100. I'll admit I had trained for the wrong test, my dufus mistake. 70 is a passing grade so I did pass, but did not do amazing. I've since changed my training and am confident i'd make an 85-90 atleast if I retook it.
Is that physical test grade going to dick me over for this academy?
Also, for those with any experience on it..not to put all my eggs in one basket I also applied to the local university's police department. Is my current background decent to get employed or are they gonna over look me for someone that already has POST certification?
Thanks for any advice or knowledge you guys can share. I'm living with my fiance and parents right now and I'm eager to get a real job, move out and start my adult life. Becoming a cop seems like its been a lot harder then I thought but its what I really want to do.
