Police Academy training generally occurs after one is accepted to the police force of his/her district or state. Each state has regulations as to what standards and curriculum should be upheld as part of police academy training. Inevitably, training will consist of mental, educational and physical endurance tasks. New officers have to learn everything from appropriate use of firearms to liquor laws relevant to his/her district and/or state to search warrant preparation to cultural diversity awareness. While all police academies adhere to certain educational and effective curriculum standards, each district and state will vary dependent upon local laws and regulations.
