In order to become a Trooper in TN, you must go through the Trooper Academy. It doesn't matter how many schools you've been through or whether or not you've been certified somewhere else. It's a live-in academy and you get paid while you are in training.

Here are a few of the K-9 handlers from the St. Paul, Minnesota Police Department for inspiration:


Officer Nicole Rasmussen & K9 Chase (Officer Dave Pavlak in Bite Suit)



Officer Mary Alberg & K9 Magnum




Officer Amanda Heu & K9 Buzz


Get going, Emily...We're all rooting for you!

It depends on the area in which one lives with regard to attending an academy on your own. One cannot "fake" passing as one has to pass the TCLEOSE test in order to receive one's license.

If you can hire on an agency and THEY send you through,much much better.

OK, so here's what's up so far. I've sent in two applications to two different cities to sit for their upcoming tests. One DQ'ed me immediately because I forgot to initial the bottom of one of the pages. I asked if I could re-do the app and they said no; try again in six months. My next step is to do some ride-alongs in my city and maybe another nearby town or two to see if this is really truly what I want to do. If it is, I'll continue applying but also go ahead and sign up for the Academy in my town, which is the same one the city sends their recruits too. I'll continue applying while I'm there and when I'm done I'll be TCLEOSE certified, which should open more doors.

I'm surprised Dallas isn't hiring. they send recruiters all over looking for police officers. I had the opportunity for DPD and SAPD 25 years ago but wanted to be a Trooper. DPD and SAPD were both hiring, DPS was not. There were also some yan ----- uh Northern states hiring but I didn't want to start a family fued. Soooo, I moved to TN who was hiring.

I haven't actually looked as far as Dallas yet. I'm a good 45 minutes to an hour away from Dallas, in the middle of a bunch of smallish towns and communities. I'd honestly rather stick with one of those. There are probably 20-25 towns closer to me than Dallas, all with police departments. Dallas is HUGE and FAR.
