Most departments here require a High School education and either 2 years worth of college credits (not necessarily a degree) or military service."never bring paws to a gunfight" - Jenna

There are the min. requirements, but lots of luck getting hired here with those. Military experience/prior experience or college in addition to the min. standards for even a chance.

Minimum requirement is a HS diploma and agency run academy, but the only agencies left that run academies are the state police and maybe Detroit. Otherwise, you have to go to a college run academy that will require an Associate's degree.The truth is you're the weak, and I am the tyranny of evil men.

High School and state run academy. You get your higher leverl certificates sooner the more college you have.

I said State-Run academy for Texas, but I think it can be privately-run also, as long as it's state-certified. A lot of community colleges offer them. You probably need to have a High School education to get into the Academy, but not sure about that.
Then of course there's a state-administered TCLEOSE written test after you graduate from the academy.
College is optional, but a lot of departments require 4 years of college (some departments will waive the college requirement if you have military service or prior police experience).
Some departments require new recruits to attend their academy rather than a college academy, but again, it depends on the department.
