would it be a better choice to enlist as a military enforcement officer right out of highschool then go to college afterwards and earn degrees. or college right out of highschool and get the degrees sooner. obcourse after i would apply to become a police officer or even a higher ranking position. what would give me a better chance at that. more money. etc.

I would go to college first and earn your degree. After you earn a degree, you could still consider joining the military.

Either way is good. Choose whichever you would rather do.

You can go to college while you are in the military. I completed 54 credit hrs in a three year time period, while on active duty in the Army.

If your goal is career LE then I would say enlist first. The military experience will give you service points on the law enforcement exam, no matter what job you have in the military. You can earn credits in the service, and most departments I know of will have the requirement of either college OR priort service. So if you come out of the Marines (most of the guys at local PD are former Marines, a few AF and one army) then apply you can still get hired, you have the service points AND you have credit hours you can then apply towards a fresh degree.
