WHAT ABOUT THE STRESS OF THE ACADEMY?

Police academies across the nation vary in whether they are a stress academy or non-stress academy. A stress academy would be based on military principles, with intense physical demands and psychological pressure. Non-stress academies emphasize academics in addition to physical training sessions, and more relaxed interaction with trainers.
