Law enforcement officers are expected to have excellent job opportunities over the next several years, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). Individuals who wish to launch careers in this field may want to consider enrolling at Sul Ross State University in Texas.
The Alpine Avalanche reports that in past years, every graduate of the school's Law Enforcement Academy has passed their state certification exams.
"The 100 percent pass rate emphasizes the outstanding dedication and perseverance of this class of cadets," Kellie Powell, director of the Law Enforcement Academy, told the news source.
Each student in the program must receive an endorsement letter to take the 250-question state exam, she added.
"In order to receive an endorsement letter, cadets must pass the 350-question academy final exam with scores of 90 or higher," Powell told the media outlet.
Students who have passed the state exam are qualified for employment as peace officers in the Lone Star State.
According to the BLS, professionals in this field can earn an average of $52,810 per year.
