    Visit the San Jose Police Department website. If you meet the below requirements, you can apply.

    *At least 21 years old at the time of the academy. The mandatory retirement age is 70 years old.

    *A valid United States driver's license.

    *U.S. high school diploma or general education diploma (GED). Waived, if you have a college degree, from an accredited college within the U.S.

    *40 semester college credits or 60 quarter college credits from an accredited college or university.

    U.S. Citizenship or permanent resident alien who has applied for citizenship.

    *Must have at least 20/40 uncorrected vision.

    *No felony, domestic violence, misdemeanor assault convictions or currently on probation or parole.

    You have to apply, take a test, complete a personal history questionnaire, and complete an oral board exam. Applicants who successfully complete the Oral Board Exam will be placed on an eligibility list for the Background Inquiry Process. Those selected to the Background Inquiry Process will be notified approximately two to three weeks after the last Oral Board Exam of the testing cycle.

    Getting police officer jobs is becoming more and more competitive. If you want to become a police officer, do whatever you can to make yourself the best candidate that you can. You should get a college degree if you can. Getting a college degree is one of the best things that you can do. Many departments require or prefer applicants to have college. Again, you must have at least 40 credits to get hired by the San Jose Police Department. You should complete a degree. Don't do anything illegal, maintain a good reputation, keep a good driving record, don't do anything illegal, improve all of your communication skills as much as possible, and become as physically fit as you can. Best of luck!
