Never heard of an height requirement, as I've seen short female cops and been known to take down a 6 foot plus tall man.
Age? That may vary, but I knew a female cop in her early 30's whom left her accounting job and became a cop.
I think it all depends on if you can pass the physical and psychological aspects of the academy. But HOW some older overweight men pass after having to do a review or whatever it is to stay IN and on the beat....I will never understand!!
I've seen some heavy cops out there. I guess this is why they call for "back-up"!
I would check with your local Sheriff's office or sub-station in town.
