    Submit your application Saturday, June 25th at 8:00 am and you'll have the opportunity to take the KSA (computer exam) and the PAT (physical ability test) on the same day. You'll need to arrive in business attire but be sure to pack PT clothing. Expect to be processing until about 2:00 pm.

    If you'd prefer to only submit an application, stop on in between 8:00 am and 1:00 pm.

    ****Contact (210)207-5050 upon arrival****

    Kailee BiesenbachMy boyfriend is a United States Marine Corps Veteran. When he was medically retired from the military (he lost an eye) all he wanted was to become a cop in our great city. He has been told he can't because of his missing eye. If I'm being told right, veterans with prosthetic legs can become cops, why does one eye limit him? Clearly he can still see, he has more than perfect vision in his left eye, he was a marine so you know he is trained better than half the guys applying, and I guarantee that as a retired scout snipper he has a better shot group and better instincts than most. I want to know why people with one eye are discriminated against, why it is limiting him in such a way, and if there is anything we can do to change it. He would be a great cop, he is selfless and cares about people. I've seen him in action and I know he could be great.
