Alyssa’s Answer

The minimum requirement is usually a high school diploma, although an increasing number of police departments require applicants to complete at least one or two years of college coursework or have an associate's degree. A bachelor's degree is the minimum requirement for federal police jobs. Most aspiring police officers pursue degrees in criminal justice. In criminal justice degree programs, students learn about every aspect of the law and justice system. Criminal justice is an interdisciplinary field that incorporates the study of law, psychology, sociology, public administration, and more. Other relevant majors that students thinking of joining the police force may pursue include police science and political science. Most police departments prefer applicants with a degree, regardless of their major.

Daniel’s Answer

The previous answer is very detailed and helpful. I do not have much to add to this, but i will note that its important to understand that you need to live your whole life in a way that meets this goal. The FBI background check and corresponding interview process is very invasive and thorough. Thus, you need to live a life that avoids conflicts, getting in trouble or committing any sort of frowned upon acts. You must also be very careful of your social media and internet activity as this can also ruin your chances of being accepted into what is such an exclusive career.
