This question comes up (everywhere) fairly often.

No, you are not too old.

Will you be older than most rookies? Yeah, you will.

Are you too old to start at some agencies? Yeah, you are (35 is a hard line in a number of places, some are higher)

The thing you need to ask yourself is, are you up to it?

Some agencies have a fair operational tempo. You will take a lot of hot calls. Jumping fences, kicking doors, fighting with fools. Are you up to that?

Some agencies are pretty slow...but you never know when it will go down, will you be ready?

Good luck. There are people in there 50's who start this game.
