What an officer majors in before becoming a police officer is different for every jurisdiction. Some jurisdictions require no education. Others require a Bachelor's degree and many have a 2 year stint in Criminal Justice. I would suggest that you call your local police department and ask for an informational interview...an interview with a police officer, lieutenant, sergeant, or captain for the sole purpose of gathering information about the job. I hope this helps.
