What education or training do you need to become a cop?
you need to have a criminal justice degree to become a cop
Actually many police stations require only that you receive your High School Diploma, and prefer an Associates degree (2 years of college). Some states also require police academy training, but the extensiveness of your education does not have to be very much in order to become a police officer. I would assume that animal cops have to receive extra training, to learn how to deal with certain situations without harming the animals.
To be an official cop, one must go through some basic training. The police academy is where much of that training takes place. The cop has to pass all classes satisfactorily and graduate from the academy. They are hired sometimes prior to finishing the academy and sometimes the department hiring them pays their way. Once they become a cop, they are assigned to a Field Training Officer who works with them for several weeks before…
Why not ring your state police headquarters or go on the net. Ring the local police station. They could probably put you in contact with Recruiting. Most police forces do on the job training... though for some skills you might have to do tech college or a university course after hours. If you really want to be a cop take your time. It will all pan out.
