3 double spaced pages on if police officers should be required to have a college degree.
My argument is that police officers should be required to have a college degree.
Can use any sources except for wikipedia.
This is the rough draft of my first paragraph.
As of 1997, just around 2% of police agencies required their officers to hold a bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university. It is possible that some people will say that having a college degree offers nothing to prepare someone for their line of duty; nevertheless, this statement is not entirely accurate. A college degree will ensure that law enforcement personnel are more mature by the time they enter the field, that they have a more in-depth knowledge of the criminal justice system, and that they have improved skills in written communication, verbal communication, and communication in general. Even though students learn written, communicative, and verbal skills during their time in high school, obtaining a college degree is necessary to fully hone those criteria and make them applicable for the real world. If every law enforcement official had a bachelor’s degree or higher, there would be less police brutality and more empathetic policemen on the job.
