    What exactly are you nervious about? Being a police officer, the danger, your age? If it's your age, I wouldn't worry about it. I went trhough the academy at 32 and did pretty well. There were 20 and 21 year olds that I was doing better than. I was in the top 10% of the class for everything. Being a Police Officer is a great job. You are going to love it. Everyday is different. You can minimize your risk by always being careful, wearing your vest all the time and learning as much from others as possible. Never stop the learning process and never treat your job as routine and the chances are you will be just fine. Best of luck to you!

    Why did the donut cross the road? Because It fell off the truck.

    I'll give you a hint, look for something related to jobs.

    You're not off to a good start, seeing as officers investigate things.
