It seems that some have missed the core question in this issue...

It is not that someone in the vicinity of 35 is not able to successfully complete a Police Academy.

It is the idea that many agencies have a requirement to complete 25 years of service to be eligible to retire.

Ask Yourself...do you really want a 60 plus year old responding to emergency calls?

Especially in smaller department, where many calls are handled single "O".

Of course there could be an "up" side...

A young guy gets punched in the mouth at a bar fight, he is likely to spit out his teeth.

An older guy is more likely to spit out his dentures.
