Hello Bryan, working as an officer is somewhat as demanding as working in the music industry. It's also time consuming too for both fields. The big question is why do you want to? Being a police officer requires consistent growth and I don't think you plan on quitting at some point so as to veer into music. If there's away you can slip it into your leisure time then great, but this possibility isn't so common. It could be easier to join the police after working in the recording studio and rarely the other way round. I think with your knowledge of acoustics, vocal recording technology and so on, it could be useful in the police force. Ultimately, decide which you desire the most. I hope this helps, Good luck.
