PostSubject: So many questions...Law enfourcement job?   Tue Dec 27, 2011 8:18 pm

So I graduate high school in a little less then five months. I've been thinking a lot of what I want to do with my life afterwards and I'm more then certain that I want to do something with law enforcement. What I would really like to do is become a detective. Smile

I'm only 5 feet tall, and weigh a measly 97 pounds. My parents are completely against the idea. They're afraid their 'little girl' will get hurt. I can see why they would worry, but this is really what I would like to do with my life. I work out daily and do cardio, in an attempt to keep what little muscle I have. And I know it would be hard, but I'm ready to commit. We only get one shot at life, and I don't want to end up getting stuck in a job where I'm unhappy to show up at the office every day. Sad

Aside from the question about what the weight and height limits are, what would be a good college degree for me to take in order to achieve this status? I was thinking maybe majoring in Computer Science along with Criminal Justice, or should I not do Criminal Justice? Any tips? They'd be much appreciated. Smile

Computer science is great! It wouldn't hurt to minor in criminal justice if you want to, but it isn't necessary. Your height shouldn't stop you from becoming a police officer or detective Smile

If you want to add muscle mass cut back on the cardio. I would just do cardio once a week. Work with weights and do some interval training. Eat right and get enough protein.

I'm 5'2", and I've been a police officer for a little more than five years. Don't let your height discourage you Exclamation

You can't go wrong with a computer science degree Exclamation Pack on some pounds by doing some simple weight lifting exercises that work major muscle groups, and get regular doses of quality protein, carbs, and good fats Smile
