    Takes a lot of courage to be a police officer especially a street officer.*

    I would say if you were really into adventure/ crime stopping. its dangerous and doesn’t pay as much as it should, but it is truly great if your looking for a way to ‘get out there.’ If your heart is into fighting crime and you feel you are brave/courageous enough to risk your life, then by all means, go for it:)

    Cant say for sure about Canada, but in the States you pretty much NEED a criminal justice degree to get a job as a Police Officer, except maybe in some small towns. The level of degree you get (2yr vs 4yr) will kinda determine the degree of officer you start out as, though you’ll still need to go through police academy no matter what. If you want to be an FBI agent, or something similar, a master’s degree would be good.

    As far as your mother goes, just tell her that without qualified police officers around that SHE might get robbed shot or killed. :P

    You are young, so my advice is to work your butt off in high school and go to college.

    Pro Sports athletes make WAY more money than cops.
    Cops are basically society’s janitors with guns.
    If you want action, I would look into the military. If you go to college or uni (or even start a degree program) you could join as an officer and be on the safer side of things. And when you discharge, it would look good on your resume if you do decide to become a cop.

    But since you’re 16, I would keep my options open and wait til you’re older. You might change your mind. Try and do a Police Co-op through highschool to get more info.

    You can only truly answer this for yourself. But what you need to answer the question is an answer to what the police really do. You can find out some of this, at your age, by becoming a police explorer, if that is available. There are so many facets of police work that they cannot be listed in a short time. However, some are always having new things to do, meeting new people, helping people, being outside, learning on a constant basis, and bringing to justice those that victimize other people.
    I have worked over 30 years as an officer. I still see things that amaze me. Police work can be boring if you let it. It is what you make of it.
