Ohio House Approves Changes to Police Recruit Requirements

June 18, 2015  | 

Ohio would boost the amount of training to become a police officer and require all candidates for law enforcement jobs to have a high school diploma under a legislative proposal, reports the Associated Press.

The measures follow recommendations for upgrading police training and standards that emerged from committees convened by Attorney General Mike DeWine and Gov. John Kasich in the wake of protests over fatal police shootings.

The Ohio House approved a bill Wednesday containing both proposals.

well, DAH! Where have the Ohio folks been, its now 2012 not 1912. Seems about time these changes were made. This is a profession that gives power to us, you should be well educated (high school a MINIMUM) and well trained to do this job. This is not labor and not stacking boxes, its life and death and is a very important job that needs trained people. We all know that times have changed, well most everyone but Ohio it seems.
