Question by Samantha Bush: What does it take to become a Police Officer?
What does it take to become a Police Officer? (Actually, I want to become a Homicide Detective, but assume I need to be a patrol officer first.) I keep asking almost every officer I encounter, but I usually am blown off. It’s becoming discouraging, but I figured I’d give asking on here a shot first. I’m in the Houston, Pearland, Friendswood, Webster area and am looking to join the force here. I know I need a certain number of college hours, but beyond that I’m lost. Any information or tips would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Check with your local colleges/university that have a Criminal Justice Program and find out what there requirements are. Then after graduation you will most likely have to go through a Police Academy
