I'm 34 and working to join a department. At least in the departments I've interviewed with, my age seems to be in the median. Some older, some younger.
I don't have a problem taking orders from someone younger than me, most lieutenants I trained were much younger than me. Besides that, until I have some experience there, age doesn't matter. The younger, but more police experienced officer knows that district better than me.
