Local Students Learn What it Takes to Be a Sherman Police Officer

Posted:

DENISON, TX -- Texoma high school students got to talk shop with a cop today.     

The Sherman Police department is trying to get students interested in law enforcement at an early age.

Sherman Sgt. D.M. Hampton stopped by Denison high school today to teach a criminal justice class the ins and outs of hiring officers.  

He spoke about the education and background requirements for getting hired and mixed in a little of his own life story.  

He also says the department will be testing possible recruits in mid April.

The signup deadline is April 8th.

If you are interested in taking the test you can go to the Sherman Police Department's website at
