School Police

It takes a special person to be a member of a police force on a school or campus. Many of these jobs involve dealing with younger citizens, so you must be prepared, qualified, and willing to engage with this sort of civilian. Many university, college, and higher education centers require their potential applicants to demonstrate a propensity toward individuals of the age you will be expected to encounter. As such, many individuals who end up on a school police force have prior experience in more general law enforcement. There are a number of unique challenges and benefits toward working on an educational campus. For example, there may be long periods of relative calm punctuated by extremely intense situations. Additionally, alcohol and drug law enforcement will be a large component of your responsibilities. Potential departments will want you to know the laws in your state as well as be able to identify all manner of recreational and prescription drugs in order to maximize your officer effectiveness.
