    - If you are a Peace Officer I have a couple of questions:

    A) Is it possible to fail the Police Academy? And if so how?

    B) Are you a RCMP, and if so why did you choose to be with the RCMP, rather then city police?

    C) What should you expect on the Police Civil Exam?

    D) What do they ask you when they do the psychological examinations?

    E) Would someone of 150 pounds at 6 foot 3 be too small?

    I think you would be too small, get some muscle, I know someone that height and weight, he is just about the lankiest person I've ever seen. You need to start working out. I don't mean any offense but if your want to be an officer and you are trying to catch someone you would need to have some muscle mass to get them down and handcuff them.

    my friend gained 80 lbs two years after graduating from a police academy and working as an officer of the peace.

    he was in good shape before too... now he's just your typical fat cop.

    My brother just got hired at the Toronto Regional Police as a court officer.

    He just started his training a few weeks ago.

    Don't worry about your size, I'm 5" 8' and my brother's shorter than me by an inch or two, and He's also only about 130-140 pounds. If he can get in, you can DEFINITELY get in :p

    I'm a special constable with Dorset Police in the UK. For those in the US and abroad it means I do the job voluntarily but still wear the same uniform and have the same powers of arrest.

    We have to wear the most impractical headgear though.

    It seems you are asking about being a Canadian peace officer on an international forum, no offense, but since you are asking specific requirements, you might be best to ask directly to the academy or RCMP.
