The best source of information about the Dallas Police Academy can be found on the Dallas Police Department website.
The website details the application requirements, the training procedure, and what kind of tests you'll be expected to pass.

Thinking of attending the Dallas Police Academy?
According to the official police department website, before you are even considered for a place in the training academy, you must meet a list of requirements.

These criteria - such as being a US citizen - are straightforward and to be expected for any law-enforcement position, but you may be surprised to find out that all Dallas police officers have to achieve a minimum grade point average of 2.0 in high school.

This is because there is a lot of 'book-work' involved in becoming a police officer: Memorizing laws and radio codes is particularly tricky.

Once you're on the course, you'll be trained in all aspects of police work. You'll learn how to clean, load and shoot a gun, but you'll also have to pass theory tests and learn about the law.

What's it really like at the Dallas police academy? For a well-rounded perspective on what life is like in the ranks of the academy, I'd suggest taking a look at various blogs and forums. Is one source of dialogue about the Dallas police department that I came across. This forum is mainly frequented by applicants and academy-hopefuls, so might be of some use to you.

I also recently noticed an interesting blog post about the role that alcohol and drinking-culture plays in becoming a police officer in Dallas. Again, recommended reading if you want to know what life is really like at the academy!

Dallas Police academy is like an institution for the students and it also provide the students and trainees. There's a professional approach about crimes and criminal acts.

It is not so difficult as you may have heard. You just need to be mentally fit and physically fit as well.

Your ideal weight should not exceed the required limit. Similarly, you must not be underweight.
