How to become a Peace Officer?

I google this, but all the results are using "Peace officer" and "Police officer" synonymously. Needless to say, this is incorrect. I want to know how to become a certified Peace Officer in the State of Georgia. Where do I go to begin the process? How long will it take? How much will it cost me? Do I have to be a certain age? If so, what age do I have to be? What are the requirements for it?

You should start with looking at the Georgia state law, there will be a section on the definition of a Peace Officer, usually, this designation is derived for officers that derive their authority from the constitution such as a sheriff or constable.

A peace officer is another term for a police officer, as is law enforcement officer. It does require an IQ above room temperature. Where did you ever get the idea that the terms being synonymous was incorrect? Better check again, because they are.
