How much does it cost? Nothing.

Did you know that once you are accepted into the police academy and you begin your first day you are considered an employee. You do not pay us to go through our academy, we pay YOU! Some of the smaller departments require you to attend a private police academy and pay for this academy out of your own pocket before you can apply for their agency. This is not the case with HPD. I know many of my readers know this information already, but lately I have been getting several emails asking about this. HPD offers opportunities that the smaller departments simply can't give you because of their limited size. From riding a horse to flying a helicopter you can do it here at HPD.

Another good reason to become an HPD officer! I can't wait until I'm old enough to work for the HPD. Stay safe.

P.S. When are more trivia questions coming out so I can get a recruiting shirt? I want one, so make it easy :)

This is truely awesome. Also don't forget to mention if you are prior service (military) the GI bill will also pay you while in the academy! Now hurry up with my packet HPD! :P

That is something many college students interested in law enforcement don't understand about the academy. If an agency is going to provide excellent training and pay you to attend, it certainly should be on your job search radar.
