Can I Become a NYPD Police Officer if I Smoked Marijuana?

Although it is now legal for New Yorkers to possess and smoke marijuana, police agencies across New York are letting Officers know that they are still prohibited from using the drug, even while off duty.

This issue will probably need to be revisited if the federal government decides to remove marijuana from the list of banned drugs and legalizes possession.

However, even if legalized at both the state and federal level, the NYPD could face liability issues if a Police Officer is involved in a situation in which they had to use force on another person and through subsequent testing, it is discovered that they tested positive for marijuana use.

Moreover, people in possession of firearms are not allowed to use marijuana. There is still a federal ban in place despite the fact that Governor Andrew Cuomo has made it legal to use and sell marijuana in the State of New York.

How Hard is it to Pass the Police Academy?

Once hired as a police recruit, prospective officers attend the New York City Police Academy. The rigorous training program lasts six months. The NYPD requires 913 hours of training for their new recruits, which is higher than the New York state-mandated requirement of 700 hours. Of the 913 hours of training: 269 hours are focused on academics, 150 hours on physical tactics, 105 hours on firearms and 28 hours on driver training. The additional 361 hours are used for additional add-on trainings and presentations.

Courses cover such topics as law, behavioral science, physical training and tactics, police science, firearms training, and First Aid/ CPR. Classes in terrorism, identity theft, and other advanced law enforcement skills are also part of the curriculum.

Recruits must pass 4 separate exams with a score of 75% or higher to graduate from the academy and be sworn in as an NYPD Police Officer.

Can I become a NYPD Police Officer without a HS diploma?

All prospective NYPD recruits must have a high school diploma/GED, AND either 60 semester hours of college credit or two years of full-time experience in the United States Armed Forces.

Those who do not meet these guidelines may be interested in the NYPD’s Police Cadet Corps. This work-study program places cadet recruits in paid NYPD support assignments while providing tuition assistance to help candidates meet the college experience requirement.
