I almost have my first 2 years of college out of the way. I hope to eventually recieving a Bachelor's and Masters degree(Major: Political Science) but, hopefully while I'm a Police Officer. Is this a bad idea? I realize I am more likely to get hired with a higher degree but for me I would love to get my career going sooner rather than later. Is it not a good idea to apply for Police officer jobs while attending college or should I wait until I at least achieve a Bachelor's degree?

Welcome Rafe26!

You can attend college while you are a police officer. It can be difficult at times depending on your work schedule, etc. There are many police officers that do it. There are many colleges and universities that offer degree completion programs and/or online classes that might make it easier for you. If possible, I would definitely suggest finishing your four year degree first if possible. The police officer jobs will still be there after you get your four year degree, and they will be easier to get, and you can be more selective about which jobs you apply for. I commend you for attending college.

Finish school first! It's much easier.
