Question by Satan: What degree do I need to become a cop?
My ultimate goal is to become a homicide detective. I am planning on going to a community college, then transfer to a university to finish getting a degree. I know I don’t need one, but I’d like something to fall back on in case it does not work out. What should I major in to become a police officer? I live in Los Angeles so I think a degree would be very useful.

Satan, that’s some name. Anyway, just major in Administration of Justice. I’ve taken Aj 1 2 and 3. There very interesting courses, especially Aj 2, which is about criminal law concepts. Aj 3 is cool, that one is about criminal evidence. I don’t plan on being a cop, but I’d like to be a paralegal who works in criminal law. Also, you don’t have to have a degree, you can just join the academy.
