John G. Yung visited us in the classroom on December 10th. He has been a State Policemen for almost 24 years. He described how the application process for being a state policeman is very tough and lengthy. He said that in the application process you have to take multiple tests such as: a written test, a physical ability test, and many more. During the process you have to do an oral interview. They have to do a polygraph on you and a background investigation and have to take a drug test then you might have a conditional offer of employment. If you are accepted, you have to go to a training academy for around 16 weeks. Then you must go to school to learn more such as: breath testing school, traffic law, and criminal law. Then you make a wish list of where you would like to go. If you graduate you Graduate at the Indianapolis State Capitol. When you pass everything, you have to be willing to go anywhere in the state, but not your home area. Once you have graduated you are paired with a primary officer for 14 weeks. After the process you are on probation for a year meaning if you do anything wrong or have any kind of hiccup you could be discharged as an officer. He also spoke of levels of authority and that to apprehend someone he must observe the offense. Overall, a very informative visit!
