Learning how to become a police officer is a little more complex these days as opposed to days past. I don’t know about modern times, but back in my day, many boys wanted to be either Firemen, Astronauts or Policemen. As if you didn’t know already, being a Policeman isn’t going to make you rich. It’s one of those jobs you do because you want to help people and serve your community. You don’t do this job because you want to carry a badge and a gun. People who enter the Police force for this reason are generally disappointed in their career down the road. Either they realize it’s not the ball of wax they thought it would be or they end up trouble because they crossed the line. Just remember, nowadays everyone and their brother has a cell phone that will take pictures and video. You’ll be under public scrutiny 24/7 plus the media will be waiting like rabid dogs for you to screw up so they can make you and the Police department you work for out to be monsters. But hey, if you can get past all this, then you may make a pretty good cop!
