Well man, sorry about the military.
To answer your question, well that would depend on a couple of things. One is the department you are applying to (some departments have different regulations and requirements than others). It also depends on like how your autism affects you.
There are cops with mild autism.
By the way, you can go to the police academy BEFORE you apply for the police department. that is propably the best way to get hired. If you go to the academy and get POST certified
BEFORE you apply, they may still very well hire you even though you have mild autism because they know you are POST certified and are qualified to do the job (as you demonstrated your ability to pass the police academy).
One thing however, going to the police academy on your own is NOT tuition free. You will have to pay for it ON YOUR OWN.
Hope it works out
spoke to a cop, looked on LAPD website, also just know that you can go to the police academy BEFORE you apply
