I’ve been thinking about becoming a police officer in my town. It’s a pretty boring place and they often hire. I checked the requirements online and it’s basically just required that I have my high school diploma (which I do). I know I have to take an entrance exam and I’m assuming I’ll have to go to some basic training but it’s not really clear. I’m also just curious why in some places you need a college degree. I’m going to start my 30s and feel like I’ve spent too much time not pursuing a career. I’ve been steadily employed for years, but it’s not paying well, not fulfilling. I feel useless. I want to help people and do something with my life. Basically looking for advice.
