Becoming the Badge: Peace Officers
In order to become a peace officer in the State of Texas, El Paso police recruits must pass the state exam.
Six months of classes, studying, tutoring and testing all lead to this point.
But it won't mean anything if they can't pass the state exam.
They cannot be cops without a license.
The state requires peace officers score at least a 70 percent on the state licensing exam. If they fail the state exam, they may not get a second chance.
