The first thing is to be of good moral character and physical condition. Moral character is about doing what is right, even if there is no chance of getting caught. You do not lie, steal, or disrespect your teachers, parents, elders, and others. You need to be very careful about your on-line presence, as the police department will do a very careful check before they decide to hire you. So do not say bad things on the internet, or make up stories. I looked at your profile, and past questions, and you are in either 2nd, 4th, or 5th grade, and either a guy or girl, depending on which question I am looking at. This sort of thing will cause you problems later on. Just be honest, and be yourself.
Physical condition includes strength, endurance (running great distances) and flexibility. The police academy is very challenging, much like the military.
Once you become a police officer, you will spend your time either responding to dispatched calls or looking for people who need help or looking for bad guys. You will spend a lot of time writing reports, so it is important to do well in English class.
Hope this helps!

I am proud of you not to many 4th graders know what they want to be in the future. The first thing you should do is lesson to your parents and respect others. Make sure you are not a follower this can affect your future. You have two choices apply for the police force right after high school or attend a 4 year college. Apply for the police force when you become a junior in college.
In the future once you complete the police force requirement you serve for the better good. Do not break the law your job is to follow the law and serve your country.
Good luck to you on becoming a future cop.
