Q. - I
am an Iraq veteran with many awards and accomplishments. How would I go
about getting involved in Terrell law enforcement? And what are the requirements?

for your service to our country.
To be qualified for application to the Terrell Police Department a
person must be 21-44 years old and must be a high school graduate or
have GED +12 hours of college credit.
There are a number of other eligibility requirements that we would
