Most colleges that hold BLET programs offer 2 courses a year. One starting usually in August, and the other in Jan or Feb.

Once again, places like Charlotte and the HP hold their schools whenever they feel like it. The application process to Charlotte and the HP can take up to 6 to 12 months, depending on how quick they move you in the application process.

I am very interested in becoming a police officer in Charlotte. I live in Tampa, FL now but don't really like it here. I heard Charlotte is a great place to live. Is the police department well liked there? I would like to experience the different seasons, work for a big city, ect...Tampa is on a hiring freeze so I need other options. Does anyone suggest Charlotte?

Pay/pension/benefits are much much better in Florida (NC PD's cant hold a candle to Fl Pd's), however quality of life is better in Charlotte area. If u dont plan on having kids and raising a family...stay in Florida. If u want a family.... go to Charlotte. There are plenty of citys in Florida hiring. Dont be set on one agency (TPD). This is obviously my opinion, but Ive done a lot of research on the pay/pension/benefits thing. Quality of life is subjective but I think most will agree with my opinion.

Default Maximum age limit?

I am a police lieutenant in New Jersey. I am retiring after a 25 year career. With the aparent shortage of police officers in Union County, I am wondering if I could get a law enforcement job at age 48? I know the salaries are not substantial, but I could live fairly well on my pension, so the money isn't that crucial. I am still in good physical condition, and I love police work. What are my chances?

Not sure what your chances are, but I would hope with your years of service and your enthusiasm that they would scoop you up Good luck!

call their recruiter and ask, most will give you a yes or no right there on the phone based on age. Goodluck and stay safe out there!

CMPD does have paid training. I have 3 girlfriends that work for them. 2 of them really love it. However for CMPD you have to be able to past the JARPAC before you can get an application. On their website cmpd.org it has all the information that he'll need. I'm considering cmpd too. Good luck.
