one of my main goals in life so I have researched the job, like what classes I will.
need and the demands to become an officer are listed below.
Police officers protect life and property, preserve the peace, detect and prevent.

around people who commit crimes the risk of injury is higher than in many other.
occupations. Police officers usually work an 8 hour day, 40 hour week with rotating.
shifts and are subject to calls at any time and my work overtime. Departments.
usually provide officers with benefits and supply them with special allowances for.
uniforms and furnish revolvers, batons, handcuffs and other safety equipment.
A high school diploma and compulsion of 18 units of college level course work in.
Police science or a closely related field are the main requirements. A Masters.

more likely to be hired and then promoted to higher positions as a police officer. .
