Atul’s Answer

As you mentioned you are 14 and you have ways to go before you finish high school.
Focus on the education and when you are about to finish the high school, you ask yourself why do you want to be a police officer?
If you still want to be a police officer - know the facts -
1) you will work graveyard shift when you are inexperienced.
2) you will be mostly in car or a foot patrol in winter and summer depending upon where you live.
3) finally, do you have the build ie stamina, endurance and physical fitness that is required to be a police officer. Do not get carried away from a TV show or Hollywood movies about cops. Know the facts - pros/cons before you decide to become a police officer. If you do - ask your parents to accompany you to a police station to talk to police chief of your town.
Thank you comment icon Well how would talk to them right now though?? Edwin

Hello there! You can be involved with a police department pretty early on. Tons of departments have a program called "Explorers." This program is specifically designed for young enthusiasts such as yourself to become more familiar with the career field of law enforcement. Not every department will have this, so try and find a larger police department close to where you live.

James recommends the following next steps:

Find an explorer program.
