Careers: Police/colleges


hi i was wondering what are the colleges to get started

Why not just start a Community College, and take all core classes that will definitely transfer to a four year college later...It will cost you a lot less.
The lower division, under graduate requirements are the same, no matter which way you select for a major, down the road.
Take as many written and oral communications classes as you can, and you'll never regret it.

The Criminal Justice classes will wait...but if you feel a compelling need to take some, stay with survey courses, criminal law courses, and evidence oriented criminalistic courses.

Stay fit, out of trouble, no drugs or alcohol abuse.
You'll want a decent driving record, and avoid less than smart debt.
Select a hobby or two, that will comport to your police ambitions...
Find a local police agency, and see if they have a cadet or courier program.

On your own, get some first aid certs, and look at relevant FEMA courses that are free on line...the ones that have a police component.
Hope this is helpful, and enough to get you headed in the right direction.
Good Luck,
Semper Fi,
