Hi Jaquan: Being a police officer is a tough tough job! You put your life on the line and everybody is waiting to critize you for how you do your job. A police officer has to be a social worker, a counselor, a lawyer and a law enforcer all the time. I am a lawyer, so this answer is skewed toward the law. The future trends of police work seem to be leaning toward technology and reform. The police forces seem to be reforming to adopt a more community structured force so officers are familar with the people they police. The inside officers are relying on computers and webcams to track criminals. As a student, I'd look into technology courses and sociology courses to help you. Also look into John Jay College in NYC where there is a concentration of courses designed to help future police officers. Good luck, stay safe and remember, police officers lead by example!
